Bull of Heaven: An Introduction to the Minoan Brotherhood

The Minoan Brotherhood is a men's initiatory Witchcraft Tradition founded in 1977 by Eddie Buczynski, a Gardnerian and Welsh elder and Classical scholar. Its emphasis is to create a safe and sacred space for gay and bisexual men in which to work Witchcraft. Michael Lloyd will use his extensive research of Eddie Buczynski's life and times to provide some insight into the societal forces that drove Buczynski to create the Minoan Brotherhood, and will provide an elementary understanding of this men's tradition.
