Wisht Waters

Aqueous Magica and the Cult of Holy Wells

by Gemma Gary
Paperback
Publication Date: 13/07/2021
 
The sheer diversity of popular magic connected with sacred wells and springs is remarkable. Inseparable from the ancient cults of saints and spirits of place, the natural springs and wellheads of the British Isles have come to be famed places of healing, divination, and spiritual revelation. Some, possessing long traditions of votive and sacrificial offerings, have assumed powers of spirit-guardianship, or, indeed, divinities of water. Other such wells are the repositories of eldritch lore connected with the cult of the skull and the Holy Head. Additionally, bodies of magical practice have developed around some wells, serving a variety of magical purposes, including blessings and curses, healing and the dispensation of prophetic power. Originally published as the fifth book of the Three Hands Press Occult Monographs series, 'Wisht Waters' is now available in a newly-designed softcover featuring fourteen original illustrations by the author.
