The papers originating from the northern covens clearly revealed that witchcraft prior to the wiccan revival of the 1950's bore no resemblance to what passes for formulaic witchcraft now and was not pagan, fertility based or necessarily Goddess-led. Essentially it was and is the same as the witchcraft sponsored by the Baphometic Orders who trace their lineage back through the Templars to Jesus' original teachings and the culture of the Druids.
The big stumbling block here is that Royal Witchcraft, or witchcraft proper, from the early Dark Ages onwards owes as much to its clearly Christian, as it does to its direct druidic, origins and both in their original form, in the publicly disseminated opinion of the Catholic popes, were and are Satanic, inasmuch as Jesus' heredity - and the descent of the druidic dynasties - both derived from an identical Dragon nascence that the Roman Catholics decided was devilish, because the descent of both bloodlines was from the Sumerian Enki who was the Akkadian Samael: the Roman Lucifer and thus the Catholic Satan.
In Jesus' case the Roman Church, like all outsiders who know they are on to a good thing, sanitised his rituals and concealed his descent. All those who continued to follow Jesus' original teachings - like the witches - they burned as 'heretics'. This notwithstanding, the Wiccan apologists still try to tell us that witchcraft has nothing to do with christianity but is a pre-christian fertility religion.
However, the word 'heretic' was only used by the Inquisitors to specifically define those heterodox Christian beliefs which were at variance with the Roman Church's orthodox teachings. To call a witch a heretic meant that the witch was a heterodox Christian. The Inquisitors - whatever we may think of them - were nobody's fools.
They knew whom they were targetting and they knew that witches were 'original Christians' whose knowledge of the true, druidic nature of Jesus' liberating Christianity had to be quashed at any cost if the Church were to achieve the political and pecuniary supremacy they desired by replacing it with their own enslaving dogma.
As for the Black Mass that so-called New Age Wiccans disown, this ritual was not a "Christian parody born of frustration with, or rebellion against, the Church of the day" - as they repeat faithfully from the formulae printed in their bite-size tomes of New Age dogma - but contrariwise the Black Mass was the original Christian Mass of Jesus which the later Catholics stole and sanitised for public consumption in the same way that wiccan apologists are doing with witchcraft today.
Anyone with half a brain can interpret the Black Mass properly and prior to the attaching to it of the Church's 'satanic' label during the medieval period - and its decadence and misuse by outsiders throughout the Renaissance and post-Reformation eras - it was one of the most profound and poetic family rituals ever conceived, with an hermetic and alchemical symbolism which delved deep into the Kabala and High Magic.
The Black Mass had its roots in the ancient alchemical lore of Solomon and was no more nor less than a momento of teachings long past and an aide memoire for future generations, a mnemonic which was intended to remind those to come from whence the power and the wisdom derives.
If the reader looks carefully at the Aziluth scales of the sephiroth of Binah they will see what is meant. The Sabbatical Goat of the Black Mass was Chem Zoroaster, one of the early ancestors of the ancient Dragon Families and his symbolic presence at the Mass reminds one that Royal Witchcraft was strictly a family affair.
We will also remember in this context that witches actually called their 'god' the Antecessor - meaning 'the ancestor' - illustrating to later generations of readers that "Satan", also called by the witches 'Christ, son Dei' or 'Jesus Christ, son of God', was in fact a flesh and blood being, not a fallen angel or some bugaboo invented by a bunch of greedy, syphilitic Catholic recidivists in frocks.
If the witches of the Royal Covens honoured Jesus as an ancestor-god, then they must have been Merovingian by descent and thus custodians of the Sang Royale.
Here we enter in upon the realm of the Holy Grail. Royal Witches were Elven by blood and everybody contemporary to them knew this. Professor Murray made this assertion in England and was followed by Jules Michelet in France who recorded that the epithet 'fairy' was attributed by the French to the ancient Gallic Queens.
This also means that The Holy Grail itself was Elven as was Jesus himself, complete with his Crown of Fairy Thorns, depicted as the headgear of Godfroi de Vere de Bouilllon in the 12th century.
I have still to ponder the content.
But as you will notice Godfroi de Bouillon is now mentionned as Godfroi de Vere de Bouillon. Too bad I don't have the "Bottin Mondain" where nobility is registered I had as main tool when I was working in Paris along with the archives of the Journal Officiel. But maybe I can find something similar on the internet to check up the matter.
