This chapter explores Crowley's influence on Wicca, which is also known as modern pagan witchcraft. It examines the role that Crowley played in the origins of Wicca, as well as the relationship he shared with the founder of modern witchcraft, Gerald Gardner. It also discusses the early history of the Wicca movement. This chapter reveals that while Gardner drew heavily on Crowley's work during the early stages of the Wicca movement, this gradually lessened as the years went by.

Keywords:   modern pagan witchcraft, Wicca, Gerald Gardner, Wicca movement, early stages
