Wiccans of the modern era needed a simple phrase to summarize their traditions. As of now, no traces of evidence have emerged pointing to there ever having been an ancient source for the Rede. It is believed to have been created by Doreen Valiente, the most prominent witch in the 20th century, and the undisputed head of the Cochranian tradition.

This is the first time Ive ever read a fantasy novel that was quite fixated on trolls living among and communicating with humans harmoniously/5.
