Pecti Wita ~ Pictish Swirl Script and Runes

Home

Pecti Wita aka Pictish Witchcraft, sometimes referred to as Scottish Witchcraft derives from a place now known as Scotland that was inhabited by the Picts. Contrary to some beliefs, it did not derive from Wicca, in contrast Wicca derived partially from Pecti Wita. Although the terms Pecti-Wita and Pictish Witchcraft were coined by Adain Breac (1897-1989), this craft of the wise dates back further than recorded word.
