Mention witchcraft, and the images conjured up are more often than not still the mediaeval view of broomsticks, black cats, hobgoblins and halloween. Morgana is a Wiccan High Priestess of high repute and has led a Wiccan coven in Holland for 30 years. Her book intends to debunk these views by offering a glimpse beyond the broomstick to the philosophies of the religion. Basically, she says, the Old Religion, or Wicca, is a nature religion, and like nature itself, the religion adapts and grows, yet retains its higher philosophy. Above all, the Old Religion is a mystery religion.
Over the years, Morgana has facilitated a variety of Gardnerian Wiccan groups. She is co-editor of the international and bilingual magazine Wiccan Rede, which was launched in 1979, and co-founder of Silver Circle, a Wiccan network in the Netherlands.
