The book everybody shoud read!

I just read the book "Noitien asianajaja (Häxornas förvarare)" by Jan Guillou. I gotta tell you that I absolutely love the book! If you can say you know anything about the burnin times and witch hunts.. think again and read this book. Because if you haven't read this book I dare to claim you know nothing. The book is about witch hunts in Sweden, but also in Finland, Norway, Iceland, Italy and Spain. It is a must-have in every witches bookshell.

The thing I love about this book is that it's very profound. It is also written in a way that it both makes you laugh and cry. It analyzes the worldview of the people in 15th century and eventually points out that nothing has changed. And against modern expectations, there were people in the 15th century who stood by the so called witches and thought that the witch hunts were absolutely nonsense. I the book, read it, read it, read it!!!

On other things. Once been studying Ceremonial Magick or Ritual Magick or "Art Magick", or whatever you want to call it, I'm even more convinced that Wicca is the thing for me. What a dazzling sensation it was, when I was spending my Esbat and performing the Charge! Though it is very usefull to read and study other forms of magick too. I learned a lot. :)
