The historical existence of the Wiccan is clearly visible from the rise of Neopagan religion. This religion is related with magic, black magic and witchcrafts. It was the early stage of twentieth century, when the perception of this religion started to began amongst the covens, in England. The secretive covens manufactured the base of the religion through several rituals, which are generally called witch-cult. Writers like Margaret Murray, had used the term ‘witch-cult’ in her writings. The prevailing witch-cult actually came into the lime light of modern world during 1950, through the documentaries of Gerald Garner. Garner practiced this cult with some experiments, which made the Wicca more acceptable to the mass. This form of Wicca is often known as Gardnerian Wicca.


Luckily, Garner found some followers, who can carry on this cult to make it more popular in front of the world. Some great and eminent followers of Gardnerian Wicca are: Robert Cochrane, Sybil Leek and Alex Sanders. Due to the strong magical powers and social values, witch-cult was generally started to popularize among the native Englishmen. However, no significant global venture of this cult was observed, at that period of time. But, later, this started to scatter in the different parts of the world. From Britain, it started to propagate in different European countries. Soon, the concept became popular in USA.


During 1970, the witch-cult was on hype. Several books were written at this point of time. Some famous writers are: Scott Cunningham, Paul Huson, Janet Farrar, etc. From their documentation, a lot of good information is crafted by the modern historians. Since, 1970, the rising popularity of Wicca, proves its immense power and effectively.
