Beaufort House Index of English Traditional Witchcraft
WTC 100-1-0; revised 15 January 1999
This is a genealogical 'site index' of the English Craft Traditions (including Gardnerian,
Alexandrian and the like) and their offshoots. Coven leaders are the intended audience for this
index (and, indeed, for the entire Beaufort House site); the information here given is, nevertheless,
of a non-initiatory and non-Oathed nature, as we have no ultimate control over the way in which
this index is accessed (barring our judicious selection of cross-links to Traditional Wiccan rather
than Pagan or 'Wicca/Pagan' websites)
Highlighted links lead to brief discussions (suitable for pre-initiate seekers) of the theology,
practice and history of the various Traditions, along with contact information where such is
available. Follow the links through to find additional resources. Links which are shown in
[italics] lead off-site; you will have to use your browser's 'back' button to return here.
Please also read our explanatory notes, which discuss our rationale,
methods and membership.
Herewith, the index itself:
1920s Earlier forms of Witchcraft, about which we know very little.
1951 Gerald Gardner's original coven. At this stage the Tradition had not yet been named.
Interfaith and multifaithinformationfrom the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance. Well
worth the visit!
