History of Neo-Pagan Druidism, Requirement 4c
Of the following names, identify and explain the importance each has had in Neopagan history and/or the magical revival (minimum 100 words for each):
Author (most popularly) of the book Psychic Self-Defense, she founded The Society of the Inner Light and published primarily before World War II. She is, in many ways, the archetypal white lighter, mixing a variety of religious traditions that she does not belong to in order to bring about a "new age", but she is far more complex than the stereotype allows us to see.
Her basic magical training came in the form of Freemasonry and the ceremonial magic of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. She wrote a good deal of fiction, including
The Sea Princess and Moon Magic, which influenced numerous early Wiccans. She is also said to have participated in the so-called "Magical Battle of Britain" in World War II. Her primary contribution to modern Neo-Paganism seems to be her
consistent and usual clarity, rare for a magical writer of her time, and her clarity likely helped introduce many to Paganism.
