The Rollright Ritual - William G Gray


In the early 1970s the redoubtable old occultist William G. Gray bicycled from his Gloucestershire home to the Rollright stone circle in Oxfordshire on a clear and full-mooned summer night. His visionaryexperiences of that night gave rise to this book, which has become a classic among pagan and witchcraft practitioners in the UK. The text of the ritual is given in full, along with a discussion of its pattern and purpose, with an explanatory text and a discussion of the spiritual lives and practices of the stone circle builders of Great Britain. "Somehow, we ought to get away from ideas that a Standing Stone is only an outworn sign of our past, and see it as an upraised Finger of Fate beckoning us ahead toward our future."
