'a brilliant history' The Sunday Times 'makes for riveting reading' The Independent Modern pagan witchcraft is arguably the only fully-formed religion England has given the world, and has now spread across four continents. This second edition of The Triumph of the Moon extensively revises the first full-scale scholarly study of modern pagan witchcraft. Ronald Hutton examines the nature and development of this religion, and offers a history of attitudes to witchcraft, paganism and magic in British society since 1800. Its pages reveal village cunning folk, Victorian ritual magicians, classicists and archaeologists, leaders of woodcraft and scouting movements, Freemasons, and members of rural secret societies. We also find some of the leading figures of English literature, from the Romantic poets to W. B. Yeats, D. H. Lawrence and Robert Graves, as well as the main personalities who have represented pagan witchcraft to the public world since 1950. Thriller writers like Dennis Wheatley, and films and television programmes, get similar coverage, as does tabloid journalism. The material is by its nature often sensational, and care is taken throughout to distinguish fact from fantasy, in a manner not previously applied to most of the stories involved. Meticulously researched, The Triumph of the Moon presents an authoritative insight into an aspect of modern cultural history which has attracted sensational publicity but has hitherto been little understood. This edition incorporates new research carried out by the author as well as research by others who have been inspired by this book over the twenty years since its first publication.… (meer)

    The Myth of Matriarchal Prehistory: Why An Invented Past Will Not Give Women a Future door Cynthia Eller (aulsmith)
    aulsmith: Both books debunk the idea that current Neo-pagan ideas have historical roots. Both are sympathetic to the reasons why these myths about the past have emerged.

Was an interesting book, differently read more like a text book and wasn't an easy read. The book did cover lots of facts and I was glad i have been a practicing Wiccan for years before reading the book, this helped me to understand more what was being talked about and i also new of a lot of the people being mentioned. When the book was done i was left with a bit more of an understanding of the history of Wicca and a bunch of more books are my to read list. ( )

Hutton provides an excellent history of the origins of pagan witchcraft, focusing on the groundwork that led to the emergence of Wicca, and changes that occurred after its emergence. This academic work provides a fantastic overview to anyone interested in an anthropological study of this religion. ( )

So thorough! So well researched! Such a loving but academic tone! This one was a joy to read. ( )

Triumph of the Moon is an academic work and is therefore full of thoroughly researched and deeply interesting information - presented in a very dry and inaccessible way. ( )
