Aradia; or, The gospel of the witches by Charles Godfrey Leland ( Book )
6 editions published between 1899 and 2013 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The text is a composite. Some of it is Leland's translation into English of an original Italian manuscript, the Vangelo (gospel). Leland reported receiving the manuscript from his primary informant on Italian witchcraft beliefs, a woman Leland referred to as ""Maddalena"" and whom he called his ""witch informant"" in Italy.

Leland took up arms against King Louis-Philippe in the 1848 revolution in France, popularized the term "emancipation" of slaves, fought for the Union in the American Civil War, and unearthed a diverse collection of folklore, including the alleged "bible" of pagan witchcraft.
