Format: Paperback
I have read a number of books on Hekate and each had something to offer. Of course there is going to be a great deal of overlap between the various books about Hekate but where I feel that this book differs is that a lot of the information in it has been meticulously researched and is fresh and I would say original - much of the information just cannot be found in many of the other books - and I have to question some of comments in some of the reviews as to the information presented in this book being found on the internet. I have done a few searches and yes, there were one or two snippets of information there, but NOT to the extent that is presented in this book. And I'm sorry, but some of the information in the book just CANNOT be found online(one example is the link between vegetarianism and the priesthood of Hekate and I have done a lot of research into Greeks and Vegetarianism and this was the first place I read about the link between Hekate and this aspect and it is all referenced for you to go and check the sources for yourself!). In fact, most of the links online regarding this aspect pointed to this book so that makes me wonder where those reviewers got their information from! I would challenge them and urge you the reader not to be prejudiced by those comments and find out for yourself why this book is so special!(I am a bit suspicious that the negative reviews maybe from the same person, since they are fond of using the same word "roster"!)

As for the content, I won't comment, as other reviewers have already done so and I would not want to repeat them but I would agree with them wholeheartledly!

If Hekate is your thing and you need more information about this Amazing and Great Goddess, her rites, he associates, her spells, her charms,her hymns, her incantations, then this book will fill in a lot of the gaps you have been looking for!

This is a must read for any devote to Hecate. Finding ancient symbols not only takes work but they are so powerful. The herbs and the amulets will only help person continue to grow on a spiritual path. It is wonderful to see so many books coming out about this Goddess that for to look has been forgotten or ignored. Maybe simply passed off as the Goddess of Witches and nothing more. But there is more and this book will show you the way and illuminate your path. Do the rituals and learn from the Goddess herself.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent sourcebook of material on how the ancient Greeks and Romans actually perceived and worked with the Goddess Hekate, ritually and magically. While definitely not a contemporary neo-pagan "how to" book with lots of spells and personal speculation, it's rather a work filled with footnoted and sourced genuinely historical information covering a broad span of time. The authors quote many ancient sources, some not widely available, and seem keenly aware of keeping their own personal speculations to an absolute minimum. Previously published works on Hekate tend to fall into two camps. On the one hand you have allegedly "objective" classical scholars with no personal connection to Hekate who simply reiterate what the old sources say, while putting their own particular and often clearly biased academic spin on things. Invariably Hekate is made out as a mostly dangerous and spooky "minor" Goddess, with older material showing Hekate in a positive light largely ignored or relegated to the anomaly pile. Scholarly works on Hekate have also tended to focus on a particular area or time period of Hekate worship - like Illes Johnston's Hekate Soteira or Rabinowitz's The Rotting Goddess or even Von Rudloff's Hekate in Ancient Greek Religion. The other camp is the often highly speculative modern Wiccan or neo-pagan side which sets out to show how overwhelmingly positive and inspiring Hekate is, yet ignoring much of the darker albeit later material that remains or else reframing it in a culturally acceptable or pop form in what appears to be an effort to sell books and seminars to Goths or Dark Pagans, or those with a minimal historical background.Read more ›

I say "excellent" in my title as if I'm comparing it to something else or have the authority as a historian. I'm not a historian, but I appreciated the historical representation of Hekate in this book. It uses mostly sources written from the Greek Classical period into Antiquity (the Christianization of Greece) to delve into Hekate's functions, symbols, rites of worship, and relevance in Greek society. It's important to note that this is a *study* of Hekate and covers several topics relating to her.

Highly recommend anyone interested in Greek religion and mythology pick up a copy.

I am definitely not sorry I purchased this book. Loads of valuable information for anyone interested in this Goddess. I had hoped for a bit more detail in the description of the ancient rites and rituals performed but this is a miniscule detriment as the sources for the information provided are meticulously referenced. It is really nice to have the information in one source so one does not have to sort through it all and can choose to follow a referenced source for the particular information one is interested in. There is enough information in the book itself, as well, for one who is inclined to write or incorporate into one's own rituals, some ancient roots-like rites to honor this Goddess. Very pleased with this book, it is now a must have and very valued reference book in my library.
