QUESTION 1: Wicca claims to be a religion. Assess this claim according to an
anthropological/religious studies definition of religion provided at the start of this class. In your
answer, include information regarding the worldview of Wiccans, their ethics, and their beliefs in
God or an afterlife. Provide 4-5 examples to illustrate your assessment of Wicca as a religion.
QUESTION 2: Contemporary witches believe that “the Craft” was practiced long before
mainstream religions, as early as 35,000 years ago, and has been passed down to witches today.
Is this chronology of witchcraft accurate according to archaeologists and historians? When and
how did contemporary witchcraft begin in the UK and U.S. according to Margot Adler in
“Drawing down the Moon?” What do contemporary witches argue is important for them when
considering the origins of modern witchcraft, historicity or mythology, and why? (Hint: you may
want to mention Gerald Gardener, Alex Sanders, Doreen Valiente, Z. Budapest, Margaret
Murray, Carl Jung, or Marija Gimbutas, among others, in your answer.)
