The Charge of the Goddess in Aradia
(trans. Mario and Dina Pazzaglini)

When I will have left this world,
What ever it is you have need of,
Once a month, when the moon is full
You must come to a lonely place
In a forest all together,
And adore the powerful spirit of my mother Diana,
And whomever would like to learn Witchcraft
Who will not surpass her,
My mother will teach them all things
You will be free from bondage!
And in this way, you will all be free!
But, men and women will all be naked
Until every last one of the oppressors is dead,
You will play the game of moccola Beneveto
And then you will make a supper like this…
