What is Witchcraft?
That's what this website is here to find out. Witchology.com is the website of WICA - the Witchcraft Information Centre and Archive - founded in 1999 by Dr Leo Ruickbie as a research and education provider specialising in the areas of Witchcraft, Wicca, Paganism, Magic (Magick) and the Occult. We have been online continuously since 2000.

Witchcraft Community Action
Witchcraft is Still on Trial
It might be the Twenty-First Century, but the opponents of Witchcraft and Wicca still want to see them banned, they still want to stop you from practising your religion, they still want to control your free will.
The question is: what are you going to do about it? Do you care enough about your religion and your community to defend it?
We do. WICA is doing its part by devoting our time, money and energy to raise funds to help Witches, Wiccans and Pagans experiencing religious abuse and discrimination. Called the WICA Community Fund, this is a new initiative and we need your help to make it a success: act now to defend you rights.
Blackbear Support Fund, launched 21st July, 2002, closed 21st of October, 2002. WICA raised funds to help the ACLU legally represent Brandi Blackbear in the lawsuit she brought against her school. You can read more about the case here. In total we raised US$ 44.99. Unfortunately many people reacted in an extremely negative manner to our attempts to help Ms Blackbear. But to those who generously contributed, our heartfelt thanks.
