  • John Matthews (born 1948) and Caitlín Matthews (born 1952) are English writers. Together, they have written over 150 books, translated into more than thirty languages, including Tarot packs, a card-based storytelling system, screenplays, songs and other works. Beginning to work together in London in the 1970s, they wrote and published The Western Way in 1985. This followed the lead of Christine Hartley's The Western Mysteries Tradition (1968) by identifying and promoting a European mystical tradition to offset the then-current domination of Eastern mysticisms from India and China. The book included meditations to enable readers to make contact with their inner worlds. Historian Ronald Hutton considers this an influential work. They also edited The Encyclopedia of Celtic Wisdom (2000), devised the Storyworld series (2009ff) and, most recently, created The Steampunk Tarot: Gods of the Machine (2012). They studied with two of the leading esotericists of the time, Gareth Knight and Dolorous Ashcroft-Nowicki, and from 1988 to 1992 they served as joint-presiders of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. Since 1989 they have run the Fellowship of Isis Lyceum, Domus Sophiae Terrae et Sancte Gradalis in Oxford, and are both members of the Archpriesthood Union as custodians of the legacy of the Fellowship of Isis. They are active on the New Age workshop circuit, teaching their versions of the Celtic mysteries, Neo-shamanism, the Goddess and King Arthur. They were jointly listed 86th in the Watkins list of the 100 most spiritually influential living people worldwide for 2011. They live in Oxford, UK.
