Background of Wiccan Rede

Logo Wiccan Rede - copyright Merlin Sythove

Wiccan Rede is a Dutch/English quarterly magazine on Wicca and Witchcraft. Wiccan Rede Online is the successor of the paper magazine Wiccan Rede that appeared from Spring 1980 until and including Lammas 2010.

Wiccan Rede has its roots in Gardnerian Wicca, but has always presented views from other traditions within and without Wicca. To understand the terminology used, we indicate the background of the magazine.

Wicca, or modern Witchcraft, is an initiatory path, open to those who want to become a priestess or priest and to follow the path of initiation and training within a regular coven. G.B. Gardner was the first to document this tradition, and the word wicca.

Wicca is on one hand a nature religion, revering a Goddess and a God, celebrating eight seasonal festivals and thirteen full moons, and working magic. Many people nowadays use the word Wicca to describe solely the religion. The words Witchcraft and solitary Witchcraft are used as well by the ones that want to connect individually with the Goddess and the God, without following the initiatory path.
