Ashley Mortimer: Ancient Beliefs-Modern Practices
Ashley Mortimer, trustee of the Doreen Valiente Foundation and director of the Centre For Pagan Studies, poses the question; Do the earliest developments of human religion contain threads of belief and practice that may have not only survived but been revived and reconstructed in contemporary practices like Wicca? Drawing on research from the legacies of Doreen Valiente and Gerald Gardner, Ashley focuses in on modern Witchcraft and Paganism's rise to
Popularity during the 20th century with references to its ancient roots.
