ARADIA: THE GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES

From http://www.paganlibrary.com/etext/aradia/

This text was first published in 1890. It is out of copyright and therefore may be duplicated in any manner required for the widest possible dissemination. Although not a Wiccan document per se, it -- along with the writings of Aleister Crowley, Margaret Murray, "The Key of Solomon," and "Duncan's Ritual of Freemasonry" -- formed the basis for Gerald Gardner's creation of Wicca. Gardner's eventual collaborator Doreen Valiente also drew upon this book when she refined and amended Gardner's earlier Wiccan rites. For further details on the relationship between Charles Leland's "Aradia" and the various Gardner-Valiente "Book of Shadows" texts, see Aidan Kelly's "Crafting the Art of Magic," published by Llewellyn.
