Question by prairiecrow: Fellow Wiccans, IS there such a word as “Wiccanism”?
In response to a recent question of mine, someone called the Wiccan religion “Wiccanism”. When I pointed out that there’s no such word, I received an email stating:
“‘Wiccanism’ yes there is such a word, look up your Latin.”
This left me scratching my head, because
(a) The root of the word “Wicca” is certainly NOT Latin in origin;
(b) Latin words don’t usually end is “ism”; and
(c) I’ve been Wiccan for 16 years and never heard the word “Wiccanism” used by anyone who knows anything about our faith.
So, am I wrong? IS the word “Wiccanism” a valid term that I just haven’t encountered in learned circles?
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to respond in a civil manner.
