I need witchy New Year goals

So here are a few:

- Make a pagan rosary and begin a daily devotion (which I will also record in a sort of witchy breviary or book of hours)

- Be more specific in my meditations

- Take more walks in the woods and learn to identify trees (as well as continuing my wildflower/plant studies)

- Read more books!!! (Maybe I need a 2017 reading list….)

- Start collecting more natural resources instead of buying items for my craft

- Stop using so many parenthetical statements (just kidding)

- Learn how to make incense cones

- Keep working on my small, potted herb garden on my patio

Please share! I would love some new ideas. Do you have any New Year goals for your craft?

Happy (?) St. Andrew’s Day and manuscript Monday from Scotland! This depiction of St. Andrew, unfortunately, doesn’t look too happy… Most illuminated images I’ve seen of him feature him standing next to his X-shaped cross, but the illuminator of this 14th century breviary opted for the full crucifixion. Perhaps space was an issue!

MS 39 in the University of Edinburgh Library. Book of hours, use of Sarum, written and illuminated in England c. 1430. Otherwise known as the Breviary of St. Catherine.

Got to play with this lovely lady in class today! I say “lady” because the book opens with the Hymn of St. Catherine and also includes a prayer at the end of the Psalms of the Passion, in which the words have feminine endings- this indicates that this book was executed for a female owner. It is a GORGEOUS example of mid-15th century English illumination; I initially thought it was French due to the skill in which it was executed! It is very well preserved, with bright colors and lots of very shiny burnished gold leaf.

Side note: This book was rebound in the 1950s in a medieval style. This is really cool to me, as I’m currently writing my dissertation on issues in rebinding of illuminated manuscripts!

….I refuse the censer and breviary, the thurible and ciborium, the rosary and offertory,
I prefer my wine and bread unconsecrated, my soul unrepentant—

Cursed am I by day and cursed by night,
Cursed in sleeping and cursed in waking,
Cursed in coming out and cursed in going in—

Let the wrath and the fury of the righteous henceforth be kindled against me
And lay upon me all the spells they think they can conjure—

Destroy my name under every religion and
Cut me off for my undoing from all such tribes—

So that I may live as if I am already dead.
