"All places have spirits. The Greeks called them genius loci, and they are your allies in making magic in Nature.”
Phyllis Curott, Witch Crafting
even if she’s describing a genius loci correctly, I just absolutely cannot take her seriously if she’s confusing Latin and Greek. Not only is there a difference in the language, culture and people, but a huge difference between Greek religion and Roman religion, especially when talking about ideas like a genius.
I just. I mean I can’t. She just. !
I really really really have liked Curott in the past. Her Book of Shadows is very inspiring! but the more I read Witch Crafting the more I roll my eyes and the less seriously I take her!
