“Rites of Raven’s Knoll” Book
Austin Lawrence, April 2017

We are very pleased to announce the publication of a Raven’s Knoll book, called “Rites of Raven’s Knoll.”


Cover of Rites of Raven’s Knoll

The book consists of chapters written by 28 different authors, including pieces be each of the four editors. The pieces run from descriptions of family coming of age rituals, academic articles on the reconstruction of Pagan religious practice, first-hand accounts of possession work, scripts of ceremonies and ritual dramas, working with Shrines, historical accounts of festival traditions, to poetry and song lyrics. The strand that ties each together is the devotion to community and to the magic of the Raven’s Knoll land.
