For some fifty years, secrecy has surrounded the Royal Windsor Coven and the Regency which operated from the 1960s to the 1990s. They have played a major role in shaping modern witchcraft and paganism, not only in the U.K. but, in the USA and Australasia. The Royal Windsor Coven gave birth to what is known as the "Cochrane Tradition" in witchcraft, named after the pseudonym of one of the coven's founders: "Robert Cochrane". The Regency, which was the exoteric form of the Royal Windsor Coven, was the first group to hold public, pagan celebrations, open to all-comers, in Britain and paved the way for the public pagan festivals that culminated in the Stonehenge Festivals. Together, these groups gave rise to the Clan of Tubal Cain and Y Plant Bran strands of witchcraft in Britain and the 1734 and Roebuck covens in the USA. They included amongst their members most of the famous names in witchcraft today, including Doreen Valiente, Marion Green, Norman Gills, Bill Gray, Madge Worthington, Joe Wilson and Evan John Jones.

In spite of their importance, there is very little information in the public domain about either of these groups and much of what is available is filled with factual error and invention. As leader of the Regency, the author possesses a collection of letters and documents that has never seen the light of day and sheds interesting and detailed information about the activities, beliefs and rituals of the Royal Windsor Coven and the Regency. The author also has over forty years experience and membership of the Regency, together with anecdotal information about the Royal Windsor Coven from its members who were close friends and with whom he lived for many years. This is a history of the Royal Windsor Coven and the Regency, which focuses on its members, beliefs and rituals to demystify, inform and inspire.

With plates of rare manuscript, illustrated. 488 pages.

As the title testifies, students were sworn to secrecy before being given access to this magic text, and only a few manuscripts have survived. Bits of its teachings, such as the use of the magic whistle for summoning spirits, are alluded to in other texts. Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
