Western Traditional Magic is our heritage

This is the story of Western Traditional Magic.

  • It is ancient: the tradition was founded in Athens and Alexandria by philosopher priests who studied in Egypt (Kemet) and India.
  • It survived: when Pagan religion was driven underground by the Roman Christian emperors, Western Traditional Magic survived survived in Byzantium and the Islamic world.
  • It is literate and grounded: magical texts resurfaced in western Europe during the renaissance. This revived intellectual tradition mixed with European folk religion which had preserved the Pagan relationship to land and to the gods.
  • It is alive today: in Gardnerian-style Witchcraft and the Ceremonial orders.
  • It belongs to everyone: knowledge from the tradition forms the common occult substratum of the contemporary West, including Europe, America, and the English speaking world.
