Miracles of Our Own Making
What do we mean by 'paganism' - druids, witches and occult rituals? Healing charms and forbidden knowledge? 'Miracles of Our Own Making' is a historical overview of pagan magic in the British Isles, from the ancient peoples of Britain to the rich and cosmopolitan landscape of contemporary paganism. Exploring the beliefs of the druids, Anglo-Saxons, and Vikings, as well as Elizabethan Court alchemy and witch trials, we encounter grimoires, ceremonial magic, and the Romantic revival of arcane deities. The influential and well-known - the Golden Dawn, Wicca, and figures such as Aleister Crowley - are considered alongside the everyday 'cunning folk' who formed the magical fabric of previous centuries.
