Tonight we have with us Prof. Giana Cicchelli discussing the study of Sociology of religion and how it differentiates magick and witchcraft from religion, and only mentions it when look at the growth of Wicca, and the Goddess Movement.  This differentiation seems to be based on an assumption by most sociologists that magick and witchcraft are different from religion, and concerned with different outlooks and outcomes.  Prof. Cicchelli will cover the basic premise of sociology of religion, and the position of witchcraft within that, drawing from her own observations and research.  The talk will define magick and witchcraft and examine the difference between prayer and spellwork.  Other religions beyond witchcraft are compared and explored as well.
