The Book Of Shadows

A Book of Shadows is a book containing religious texts and instructions for magical rituals found within the Neopagan religion of Wicca. Originating within the Gardnerian tradition of the Craft, the first Book of Shadows was created by the pioneering Wiccan Gerald Gardner sometime in the late 1940s or early 1950s, and which he utilised first in his Bricket Wood coven and then in other covens which he founded in following decades. The concept of the Book of Shadows was then adopted by other Wiccan traditions, such as Alexandrianism and Mohsianism, and with the rise of books teaching people how to begin following Wicca in the 1970s onward, the idea of the Book of Shadows was then further propagated amongst solitary practitioners unconnected to earlier traditions.

App Screenshots


  1. Downloaded this a few days ago and it seemed to mess with my phone. However it looks amazing and I am trying it again. Will review once it is all installed, etc. I am very happy to have found it!

  2. thanks man!! i wonder what its doing to your phone, and what type is it?!

  3. wicca is an interesting tradition of which i know fairly little. i'll have to check this out.

  4. I have actually studied Wicca over the last 3 years, and this is not an app I would download. Just the first screen shot is off putting. And also, it makes it sound like a Book of Shadows is a sort of Bible, and Wicca has no Bible.
    Every individual Wiccan creates their own Book of Shadows and learns from others, but does not follow what they are told just because it is said. They must know it first hand.

  5. Interesting application for the android. I might have to check this out.

  6. @lunasihne the app is a reference material and my own personal book of shadows so in a sense, wouldnt i be offering my version of the book because everyone creates their own book? I think your expectations dont meet the product. If you want to create your own book of shadows, then you can buy a notepad sort of app that lets you save documents. But if you want a reference that contains really good information on your beliefs, then perhaps you should buy this app.

  7. I am not a follower of conventional religion, but it is cool to see things like thise.

  8. I'm always open to different religions.
    I'll check it out if I ever get an Android :u

  9. Intresting application!
