Red Church or The Art of Pennsylvania German Braucherei


The Red Church- The art of the Pennsylvania German Braucherei is a comprehensive guide to the history, theory, and practice of Pow Wow. It draws upon historical documentation, traditional methods, and a life of personal experience to offer you a fantastic resource. Pow Wow, or Braucherei, as it is known by its practitioners, is a system of folk magic that has its roots in Christian and Pre-Christian Germany, but its character is wholly American - the quintessential American magical system. Drawing on quotes from the Bible, quabalistic principles and old grimoires, it is empowered by the Holy Trinity, and most practitioners consider themselves to be Christian, much like the Cunning Folk of England. "The Red Church: The Art of Pennsylvania German Braucherei is the finest book on German magic to be seen in decades. Comprehensive in its historical, philosophical and cultural roots, The Red Church is a book that will be appreciated by academics and modern practitioners of not just folk and ceremonial magic alike, but also energetic and faith healing, symbolism, and cultural psychology. Extensively researched and documented, non one interested in the survival of Medieval and Renaissance magic into the modern era should be without a copy of it within easy reach." -Mark Stavish, Director of Studies, Institute for Hermetic Studies. This is a 545 page soft cover book.
