Is There a Witch’s Bible?

Enchanted Circle of Witches®

A reader asks, “I was recently in a local Pagan shop and saw a book that was called The Witch’s Bible. In fact, there were THREE books available, all by different authors, with similar titles. I’m confused – I didn’t think there was an actual bible for witches. Which one is the real one that I should buy?”

 

Answer:

Here’s the thing. Because “witchcraft” is not one universal, codified set of beliefs and practices, it’s impossible to put together any sort of Big Book O’ Rules that will apply to all people who practice witchcraft. Several authors – at least five that I can think of just off the top of my head – have used the word “bible” in their book about witchcraft or Wicca. Does that mean that one is wrong and four are correct? Not hardly.

  1. Yeah i often wonder and worry that maybe i’m not acting appropriately enough becoming of a proper witch, but i always come to the conclusion that, as long as my concience is clear, i shouldn’t be doing that much wrong

    1. As far as I know there is no definition of a “proper witch”. We follow our path whatever way our guides lead us and we feel comfortable.

    2. I seen this post yesterday and wanted to jump, but I didn’t. I knew if I did no one else would respond. The Witches might have had a bible if it wasn’t for the fact that if they were caught with anything written, they would have been put to death. Our bible is written in the wind. The Witches do have Laws we live by, the Ordains, The Witches Rede of Chivalry and a few more. There are several other good guidelines on how a witch is suppose to conduct herself. But the funny thing, a true witch answers to no one but herself. She does as she pleases and accepts the results of her action. She considers there is no other power higher than herself. Unfortunately, I am a wacky witch I guess. I do believe in a power higher than myself and I also believe in Karma. I guess it is each to his own. But back to the subject at hand, if the Puritans hadn’t caught everyone with our Religion written down and killed them, we might have had a bible. But would we have called it a “bible?”
