Wicca, also known as the Craft, has vastly become one of the fastest growing spiritual paths throughout the world including the United States.   Predating Christianity, Wicca’s principle teachings follow fundamental Pagan ideologies that span millennia-old knowledge and wisdom.  Polytheistic in practice, Wiccans believe the divine is here within us and within all things in the natural world.  Therefore, we hold a deep reverence for the earth, nature and the elements.  Within one of the most historically-significant doctrines of the Wiccan faith, the Vangelo delle Streghe (Aradia, the Gospel of the Witches; 1899), the Gospel reveals key elements of Wiccan beliefs, virtues and wisdom, including the creation of the universe.  The Aradia (the Gospel) details the account of Primeval Deity Diana who longed for lifeDiana divided Herself to create millions of souls seeds and scattered them across the universe.  The Gospel furthermore tells of the birth of Aradia, the daughter of the Primordial Goddess revered in modern times as the Queen of Witches.”  Aradia was made mortal and sent to earth to remind humanity of “the old ways” and to spread the teachings of the CraftAffirmed by academic and historical accounts, Aradia lived her mortal life during the 14th century.  The Queen of Witches was responsible for the widespread of the earliest of Wiccan teachings.  Among these doctrines, Wiccans believe humanity (created from the very fabric of the universe) has the power of invoking the Goddess within to become “conscious creators” of our own– The Goddess Kingdom.
