Aradia, or The Gospel of the Witches

Suggested Price $0.99

   Aradia is a prominent figure for many Wiccan traditions, as well as other neo-pagan belief systems.  Some have revered her as a Moon Goddess, while to others she is the Queen of Witches.

   First published in 1899 by Charles Leland, and believed to be a collection of religious rites utilized by a coven of pagan witches in Tuscany, The Gospel of Witches holds spells to invoke and conjure Diana, Blessings for food, and all manner of enchantments. This text is an important influence on what we now call Wicca, and still serves as a Holy book for many modern Pagans.

   This edition of Aradia has been newly formatted for an improved layout, and edited to correct any mistakes in the original MS.  It includes the original Latin translations of the spells and rites, as well as their english interpretations.  There has also been a modest amount of artwork and graphic design added to improve the look and feel of this wonder tome.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
