Books on Hekate by Setjataset

Some (if not most) devotees, priests, witches, magicians and practitioners of Hekate love to find out more about her from a historical, modern, personal, religious and magical point of view.  They love to read and research Hekate, and therefore tend to devour everything they can find, which is written and discussed on Her.

For me personally, I like to collect books on Hekate for my personal library.  I do this so I can understand academic’s research and study on Hekate as well as individual’s personal experience and interpretation on her. I love to read how Hekate manifests for others who have a deep interest, love and respect for Hekate.  Although I don’t necessarily agree or resonate with everything I read, I find it expands my perspective and knowledge about her in a more well rounded way.

Over the last few years I have noticed more books being written on Hekate which can be attributed to her surge in popularity in our culture as well as in magical, spiritual and faith driven circles.  This means we have more resources available to us about Hekate, as well as the types of resources available.

I have personally compiled a list of Hekate books available as of writing this post.  Please note that some might be out of print, or a limited print run and therefore hard to obtain unless its second hand.  With the exception of a few books I have italicised, I have read all these books and found them useful even if I didn’t necessarily agree or like the information and style, presented.  I love being able to have the ability to be able to discern for myself what works for me and what doesn’t, when it comes to Hekate, and the fact I have access to books which share things about her from varying interpretations enriches my devotions to her personally.

So I implore you to diversify your knowledge on Hekate and pick up a book you wouldn’t necessarily, if you walked into a book shop or perused online.  Give an unknown or unfamiliar author a chance to challenge your preconceived notions of who Hekate is and what she can offer, or alternatively get that book you have had on your wish list, as knowledge is power and Hekate is all about self-empowerment.

  1. I love, love, love Robert Von Rudloff’s “Hekate in Ancient Greek Religion.” It is the number-one text I recommend to people asking me about understanding Hekate in Her historical context, in addition to Walter Burkert’s massive tome “Greek Religion.” ❤
