Celebrating Doreen Valiente

Updated: Apr 10, 2021

Today I am celebrating the life of Doreen Valiente (January 4, 1922 - September 1, 1999). Doreen was an English Witch and famed Author of many books directed toward the Modern Witchcraft Movement. Her contributions to the Craft are invaluable.

A prolific writer, below are the books she wrote:

  • Where Witchcraft Lives, in 1962

  • An ABC of Witchcraft Past & Present, in 1973

  • Natural Magic, in 1975

  • Witchcraft For Tomorrow, in 1978

  • The Rebirth of Witchcraft, in 1989

  • She co-wrote a book with author Evan John Jones, called: Witchcraft A Tradition Renewed, in 1990

Doreen Valiente: Witch was released on February 23 of 2016 by Philip Heselton. Click Book to purchase directly from the Doreen Valiente Foundation to support their cause.

Described by Professor Ronald Hutton as "the greatest single female figure in the modern British history of witchcraft".

"While Gerald Brosseau Gardner is credited with breathing life into modern witchcraft, it was his High Priestess Doreen Valiente who made it truly accessible to the wider world."
