Doreen Valiente

On Wednesday 1st September 1999 at 06.55 am, Doreen Valiente passed into the Summer Lands in her home town of Brighton.

There are few who had met her who did not find her unassuming, modest, and unpretentious. There were many reasons for her to be the opposite though. She was (and still is) the mother of one of the fastest growing religions of the later 20th Century - Wicca.

Her books have introduced thousands to the concept of the Goddess for the first time, as well as the joys of a fresh spirituality. While many who had done far less had donned titles, her humility prevented her from ever using a title such as ‘Queen of the Witches’; but she more than anyone was responsible for it’s growth, it’s poetry and beauty in it’s ritual.

And in her own words (From the Charge of the Goddess):

"I am the Gracious Goddess, who gives the gift of joy unto the heart of man. Upon earth, I give the knowledge of the spirit eternal; and beyond death, I give peace and freedom and reunion with those who have gone before."

May the Great Goddess Indeed welcome her with open arms. May she be re-united with those she has loved. She will be sadly missed by all who practise the Old Religion.
