The 27 Essential Pagan/Withcraft/Wiccan Texts That Should Be in Your Library


Click here to see the slideshow with the covers of all 27 texts:

Recently HuffPost Religion put a call out to our community about books on Paganism that every Pagan and those interested in the varied strands of Paganism should read.

The result is this great list of 27 books that range from introductory to scholarly in nature and cover the entire gamut of Pagan religions — Witchcraft, Wicca, Shamanism, Asatru, Druidism, Egyptian and Hellenic.

These books grapple with issues of sexuality, tell personal stories of faith, and provide information on the various Pagan religious rites. HuffPost Religion hopes that this list will be equally valuable for those who identify as Pagans, as well as those who are interested in Paganism, both academically and as a spiritual pursuit.

Have you read any of the books on our Pagan reading list? Let us know what you think about them in the comments.

Do you have a favorite book about Paganism that we missed? Email us at with a two-sentence description of the book and we might add it to our collection.

Special thanks to HuffPost community member David Dashifen Kees for his help with this list.
