Wicca

Wicca is an initiatory earth-based mystery religion which believes in a Goddess and a God, follows the Wheel of the Year, and follows a set of ethics which aims to “harm none”. Wicca is a path of empowerment and personal growth, stressing personal power and responsibility, and living in harmony with the universe.  Scott Cunningham also states that “Wicca doesn’t view deity as distant.  The Goddess and God are both within ourselves and manifest in all nature.” (Wicca: A Guide For the Solitary Practitioner)

Theban

The Theban Alphabet, also called the Witches’ Alphabet, is a system of writing which is thought to have originated in the 16th century.  It is first mentioned in medieval alchemical manuscripts by Polygraphia (1518) and Agrippa (1531), attributing the alphabet to Honorius of Thebes.  Thus, the Theban Alphabet is also called the Runes of Honorius or the Honorian Alphabet.  However some say the absence of characters such as ‘J’, ‘U’ and ‘W’ denote a possible connection with pre-11th century Latin, as those letters were not used until much later.
