Here is a book that brings witchcraft out of the shadows. The Triumph of the Moon is the first full-scale study of the only religion England has ever given the world--modern pagan witchcraft, otherwise known as wicca. Meticulously researched, it provides a thorough account of an ancient religion that has spread from English shores across four continents. For centuries, pagan witchcraft has been linked with chilling images of blood rituals, ghostlike druids, and even human sacrifices. But while Robert Hutton explores this dark side of witchery, he stresses the positive, reminding us that devotion to art, the natural world, femininity, and the classical deities are also central to the practice of wicca. Indeed, the author shows how leading figures in English literature--W.B. Yeats, D.H. Lawrence, and Robert Graves, just to name a few--celebrated these positive aspects of the religion in their work, thereby softening the public perception of witchcraft in Victorian England. From cunning village folk to freemasons and from high magic to the black arts, Hutton chronicles the fascinating process by which actual wiccan practices evolved into what is now a viable modern religion. He also presents compelling biographies of wicca's principal figures, such as Gerald Gardner, who was inducted into a witch coven at the age of 53, and recorded many clandestine rituals and beliefs. Ronald Hutton is known for his colorful, provocative, and always thoroughly researched studies on original subjects. This work is no exception. It will appeal to anyone interested in witchcraft, paganism and alternative religions.… (meer)

A rite of passage read, comprehensive history of witchcraft ( )

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. ( )

Having recently read Hutton's latest, _The Witch_, I reread this. I think it holds up well. More recent work clears up some of the ambiguity between witchcraft as proposed pagan precursor religion in Europe and witchcraft as widely spread idea of malignant magic users. I would recommend this work despite the controversy concerning it. ( )

"As a springboard to your own research, I'd give him a "C-". As a genuine historical resource on either paganism or witchcraft, much lower than that. "

"The type is tiny, the paragraphs are long, the language is complex."

Interview - http://necropolisnow.blogspot.ca/2011/05/interview-with-professor-ronald-hutton....

- traces the modern pagan movement in the UK back to its roots - neo-paganism and the new occult traditions. Hutton is a historian, and the material is presented so that the reader is given all possible theories, and then the most likely based on the evidence. Myths, modern and ancient are debunked and nowhere has this had a more profound effect than on Wicca.

- treats neo-paganism and Wicca with respect and tolerance while cleaning away the lies and mis-information. He also address the origins of the neopagan movement - a fascinating tale of gentlemen playing at "druids", enlightenment poets and Late Victorian Spiritualism.

- The unique mutations of the Craft in North America are addressed only to the extent that their influence migrated back to England.

- 1 very negative review.
