Beyond The Broomstick Morgana Sythove isbn 978-8792632-02-9
Beyond the Broomstick was first published as a compilation of articles in Wiccan Rede magazine. It was translated into Dutch and first published as a book in 1982. At that time there were virtually no books about Wicca available in Dutch and few people had knowledge of this new religion at all. Morgana wrote this eight part series as an introduction to Wicca with particular emphasis on philosophical thoughts behind it.
Examining major concepts such as Polarity, the Triple Goddess, the God, and the four Elements, Morgana presents Wicca in a clear, easy to read manner. This is an excellent primer for beginners but is also a handy source of information for those who feel the need for a more philosophical background.
Mention witchcraft, and the images conjured up are more often than not still the mediaeval view of broomsticks, black cats, hobgoblins and halloween. This book hopefully debunks some of these views, by offering a glimpse beyond the broomstick to the philosophies of the religion.
