Description de l'ouvrage

7 mai 2008
The Book of Shadows is a collection of magical and religious texts of Wicca and other Neopagan witchcraft traditions, containing the core rituals, magical practices, ethics and philosophy of a Wiccan or other tradition. In Wicca, it is normally copied by hand from the book of one's initiating High Priestess or Priest, who copied theirs from their initiator. In modern Eclectic Wiccan terminology, however, a Book of Shadows is a personal magical journal rather than a traditional text.

Within traditional lineaged forms of Wicca there are a number of versions of the Book of Shadows, their contents varying to a greater or lesser degree from the early versions belonging to Gerald Gardner, who first popularised Wicca. While Gardner seems to have originally treated the book as a personal journal, it has come to be considered a religious text in most traditions. (Quote from wikipedia.org)

About the Author

Napoleon Hill (1883 - 1970)
Napoleon Hill (October 26, 1883-November 8, 1970) was an American author who was one of the earliest producers of the modern genre of personal-success literature. His most famous work, Think and Grow Rich, is one of the best-selling books of all time. In America, Hill stated in his writings, people are free to believe what they want to believe, and this is what sets the United States apart from all other countries in the world. Hill's works examined the power of personal beliefs, and the role they play in personal success. "What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve" is one of Hill's hallmark expressions. How achievement actually occurs, and a formula for it that puts success in reach for the average person, were the promise of Hill's books.

Hill called his success teachings "The Philosophy of Achievement" an

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Rehash of Kelly's text - plaigerism? 10 septembre 2011
Par Don Frew - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is NOT the Gardnerian Book of Shadows! This is just a collection of the ritual texts lifted from Aidan Kelly's "Crafting the Art of Magic, Book 1" (Llewellyn Publications, 1991). There are MANY examples of alterations in the texts that prove that the versions in this book were lifted wholesale from Kelly's book. These include ritual texts that Kelly "reconstructed" from multiple sources into versions that are unique to his published book. Is he getting royalties for this? He should.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 On This Book 20 mars 2010
Par John J. Crandall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Just to clarify what other reviewers have noted - this is an oathbound tradition meaning that teaching is passed orally from mentor to student. At the same time, Forgotten Books did NOT copyright this material - they are a publishing company that published material which noone currently has a copyright on such as ancient greek texts, and religious texts that are obscure.

Apparently this is the original book of shadow transcribed from the Museum of Witchcraft however without a teacher you won't benefit much and certainly Gerald compiled this alongside a number of other witches who helped. What is disappointing is that there are no references, explanations or investigations into this material provided.

You'd be better off reading Chas Clifton's Cauldron of Inspiration alongside a few introductory books but I recommend finding a mentor and joining a coven.

Deserves no stars. Claims to be the Gardnerian Book of Shadows. Well, sorry to disappoint anyone, but it's not. The real thing was never, has never, been published.

Who had the nerve to copyright this material after all these years? Profit motive much??? Now I can't share my personal copies from the 1970s with anyone because you slapped a copyright on it after the fact? (You and several other people...) Got to call my attorney.

And why does my copy have a green bicycle on the front/back covers? Another Gardnerian "secret," I suppose?! Hey, might be a "collectible," huh?

I needed to see what's passing for Gerald's BOS of late and this version is hardly well-presented.

Cashing in on revelation is de rigour, right?

Don't waste your money, folks!

So. You've got something that claims to be an oathbound book of a particular tradition. Clearly then there are three possibilities:

1. It is indeed an oathbound book of that tradition, in which case the publisher is dishonourable and untrustworthy.
2. They are lying and it isn't what it claims to be, in which case the publisher is dishonourable and untrustworthy.
3. Some of it is genuine and some of it is not, or it is perhaps incomplete, in which case as the publisher is dishonourable and untrustworthy, you won't be able to know which is which.

One wonders also, how they've managed to conclude that Gerald Gardner is the sole author when the two most common theories as to its authorship are either that he received all or some of it from other sources, or that he compiled it along with other authors (Doreen Valiente in particular). Just what is the copyright status of this volume?

Finally, what's the point? Trying to learn an oral tradition form that tradition's written sources is a dubious pursuit in rather obvious ways. Certainly, I know, as an Alexandrian, that just having a look at my BoS wouldn't teach you much, and I'd be prepared to bet the same would be true of the Gardnerians.

If someone is interested in pursuing Gardnerianism, or any BTW tradition, then they'd certainly be well-advised to stay clear; reading what purports to be material that you plan to take an oath to keep secret is not likely to convince any potential teachers that you'd take that oath seriously, is it?

The only value in having a BoS of a tradition that is not your own (if it was your own you'd be given one for free) is to be able to go "ooh, I have a secret thing". If that's what you want, you'd get better value out of tabloid magazines that claim to have insight into the sex-lives of various flavour-of-the-month celebrities. Much juicier secrets and a good deal cheaper.
