Adriana Porter (born July 1857, Nova Scotia – d.March 1, 1946, Melrose, Massachusetts) was an alleged witch. Porter's notability rests on a poem, The Rede of the Wiccae, which was published by her granddaughter Lady Gwen Thompson in Green Egg magazine in 1975 and attributed to her. It has become a semi-sacred text within the culture of Wicca. The true authorship of the poem is, however, disputed. Some evidence suggests that it dates from several decades after Porter's death.

  • Adriana Porter (born July 1857, Nova Scotia – d.March 1, 1946, Melrose, Massachusetts) was an alleged witch. Porter's notability rests on a poem, The Rede of the Wiccae, which was published by her granddaughter Lady Gwen Thompson in Green Egg magazine in 1975 and attributed to her. It has become a semi-sacred text within the culture of Wicca. Thompson claimed that she had inherited her Wiccan beliefs and practices from Porter, who had summarised them in the poem. If this were true, it would confirm that the hidden practices of witchcraft articulated by Gerald Gardner in his books existed in independent traditions, uninfluenced by his writings. The true authorship of the poem is, however, disputed. Some evidence suggests that it dates from several decades after Porter's death.
