The creation myths of modern witchcraft and Paganism were decisively toppled at the turn of this century in Ronald Huttons celebrated book, Triumph of the Moon. But did Hutton topple more than just myths? Are some truths also hidden in the rubble? Did paganism really die out centuries ago? Was witchcraft really no more than a fantasy? Were the Gods of Wicca really born out of the Romantic movement? Did Gerald Gardner lie about his initiation into witchcraft? Ben Whitmore has retraced many of Huttons steps, critically evaluating the evidence, and he now suggests that the truth may be quite different and even more fascinating.

Whitmore asked many of the questions I asked as I was reading Triumph of the Moon by Ronald Hutton. This book will serve as a warning for me to both read more critically, and be more careful when doing research to see that I actually get what the reference is saying. Skimming is not good enough when other people are going to take what you write as a fact. ( )

Having just reread Triumph of the Moon by Ronald Hutton I turned to this critique. The author makes some good points. However, some are matters more of emphasis or interpretation than of fact. The author also needs to learn how to incorporate summaries of other authors into his text rather than stranding them in footnotes. Footnotes longer than the printed text are really hard for readers to assimilate: does one read clear through the chapter and then go back to the footnote or try to jump back and forth? ( )
