Other names

Sacred item


Book of Shadows is next to Athame the most important and sacred items of a witch. It’s a diary, it’s a spell book, it’s a rite book and in principle, it is a source of all creative knowledge and things a witch has learned.

Book of Shadows can represent itself in many different ways but mostly it is hand written and sacred and a black-covered book.

Many different witch circles dispute what a Book of Shadows should contain. According to old traditions, a student was to copy the contents of his or hers teacher to his book during time, as some of the modern witches consider that everyone can create their own book of shadows.

Main thing is, that it is not for common reading, but every spell it has is as personal to a witch as the book itself.
