Doreen Valiente, the Mother of Modern Witchcraft.

.

Doreen was the world’s most famous Witch, responsible for writing much of the text that became the liturgy of the Wiccan religion, in later years she also helped to play a big part in bringing Wicca to wider public attention through the publication of a string of books on the subject and the formation of what became the Pagan Federation. After her passing in 1999 Doreen’s legacy was left to John Belham-Payne who founded The Doreen Valiente Foundation as a charitable trust to care for the collection, research into it and make it accessible to the wider public.

Currently the Doreen Valiente Foundation is working on a project to get commemorative blue plaques placed where people who have shaped pagan history have lived, or worked. The first plaque announced is that of Doreen Valiente herself and it will be unveiled in her hometown of Brighton on June 21st 2013.
