Pow Wow, or Braucheri, asit is known by its practitioners, is a system of folk magic that has its roots in Christian and Pre-Christian Germany, but its character is wholy American - the quintissential America magical system. Drawing on quotes from teh Bible, qabalistic principles and old grimoires, it is empowered by the Holy Trinity, and most pracitioners consider themselves to be Christian, much like the Cunning Folk of England.
"the Red Churcch is the finest book on German magic to be seen in decades. Comprehensive in its historical, philosophical and cultural roots. The REd Church is a book that will be appreciated by academics and modern practiioners of not just folk and ceremonial magic alike, but also penergetic and faith healing, symbolism, and cultural psycology. Extensively researched and documented, no one interested in the survival of Medieval and Renaissance magic into the modern era should be without a copy within easy reach."
