Published by Tandem Books About this Item: Tandem Books, Raven Grimassi and the Arician Tradition of Italian Witchcraft is not associated or affiliated with the following individuals, organizations, or traditions:. The origins of Italian Witchcraft go deeply into the past of the pre-Christian era.
The earliest forms were no doubt rooted in primitive ideas about magic and spirit beings. But over time the concepts comprising Italian Witchcraft evolved. As elements of foreign beliefs in magic were absorbed in Italy, indigenous beliefs were influenced by them over time. This did not eradicate the old traditions or replace them, but almost certainly changes various elements were integrated. In the ancient literature of Greece and Italy we find the witch as a person who calls upon the primal forces of Nature as well as upon such goddesses as Hecate, Diana and Proserpina.
One example is found in the tale of Medea, where she speaks an evocation: "Diana, who commands silence when secret mysteries are performed, I invoke you. Night, faithful keeper of my secrets, and stars who, together with the moon, follow on from the fires of the daylight, I invoke you. Hecate of the three faces, who knows all my designs, and comes to help the incantations and the craft of the witches, I invoke you. Earth, who furnishes witches with powerful herbs, and you Breezes, Winds, Mountains, Rivers, and Lakes, and all the gods of the groves and all the gods of the night, be present to help me.
Proserpina, night-wandering queen, I invoke you. Hecate, Diana, Proserpina, look kindly now upon this undertaking. The idea that inanimate objects possess consciousness and power and can be called upon for aid is extremely ancient.
It is certain that primitive beliefs and practices were preserved among rustic people in rural areas, and in this light we can say that witchcraft is a peasant tradition as opposed to the learned class of educated city dwellers. However, that being said, this is not meant to exclude the involvement of the learned class in the practice of witchcraft.
In my own lineage, I am reportedly descended from a witch named Calenda Tavani sometimes called Caliente Tavani and the Tavani were, at one time, nobles in the area of Naples Tavani is a variant spelling of the more common family name, Tavano. But was Calenda a witch because of her family lineage, or was she a witch who happened to be of noble blood lines? We know historically that noble families hired Court magicians, astrologers and the like.
- aci detaling manual;
- Shakespeares Wordplay (University Paperbacks 242 242).
They also purchased Occult manuscripts and paid for them to be translated. Because noble families were clearly drawing upon outside sources, this strongly indicates that Noble families were not practicing bloodline traditions of their own but were collecting information to integrate into their developing practices. Instead, what is likely is that eclectic practices were passed along in one form or another, but that such systems themselves can be no older than the Middle Ages and therefore not a pre-Christian tradition.
We cannot dismiss the importance of Noble families that did creatively ensure the survival of the Occult Arts in one form or another.
One example is the Visconti family, which helped popularize the Tarot and therefore preserve it for future generations. At this point in the article, mention should be made of a legendary secret society in Italy known as the Madre Natura. One of the claims of the Order is that Cardinal dei Medici was a member in high standing. The Order claimed descent from an ancient Italian priesthood, and one of its goals was to "restore the usurped altars to the god of the silver bow and the radiant daughter of the foaming wave " - a reference to ancient Roman deities.
Naturally these organizations are not pre-Christian themselves; they draw upon older concepts and materials but have no direct lineage to pre-Christian sects.see
The Witches' Craft: The Roots of Witchcraft & Magical Transformation
In recent writings over the past two years or so, I have referred to the tradition passed to me as being "peasant witchcraft" and I use this term to denote its old rustic roots. It is clear, upon examination, that over time more sophisticated elements were added to the tradition, some of which are Hermetic and some appearing to be concepts reflected in Chaldean star lore. These, along with ceremonial magic techniques, lead me to believe that the tradition adopted outside beliefs and practices, which were then modified to fit the preexisting witchcraft foundation.
I cover this in my title "The Book of the Holy Strega" published in a different book from that of the same title, which I self-published back in the early s. It seems clear that occultists in the lineage had a hand at introducing elements that were of interest to them and which enhanced the tradition.
