Who wrote the original Book of Shadows?
Where did the word Wicca originate? Wicca was first given a name in Gerald Gardner’s 1954 book Witchcraft Today, in which he announced it as “wica,” the extra “c” being added in the 1960s. According to Gardner, the word was derived from Scots-English and meant “wise people.”
What gods do Wiccans believe? Most wiccans believe in a horned male god and a moon goddess. The only wiccans who do not believe in both the goddess and the god are those who belong to the Dianic Wicca. They believe in the existence of only the goddess. Some wiccans believe that the god and the goddess are equal.
