Neo-Wicca is a general type of Wicca, that is contrasted with traditional Wicca.
Neo-Wicca is characterized by solitary practice, self-initiation, and eclecticism, in contrast to traditional Wicca,
which requires practice in a coven, initiation by the coven, and orthodoxy.
Neo-Wicca was spearheaded by Scott Cunningham, with the publication of his book Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner in 1988.
Neo-Wicca was later further popularized by the authors Silver Ravenwolf and Fiona Horne, starting in 1998.
