What is a coven
In Wicca and other similar forms of modern neopagan witchcraft, such as Stregheria and Feri, a coven is a gathering or community of witches, much like a congregation in Christian parlance. It is composed of a group of believers who gather together for ceremonies of worship such as Drawing Down the Moon, or celebrating the Sabbats. The number of persons involved may vary. Although thirteen is considered ideal (probably in deference to Murray’s theories), any group of at least three can be a coven.
A Coven is not a place, not a room, not a house, not a website, not a forum, not a meeting point or any of that. A coven is given as unique name, whether it be by the leaders or the group itself. A coven is magic in itself. They individuals are very much like a family.
About Coven Leaders
Just like in a family structure, Wiccan covens are like families or tribes. A coven sometimes is governed by a couple who are magical partners. Occasionally a coven is lead by one High Priest or High Priestess. They usually are the ones that form the coven and then run it.
The High Priest & High Priestess power and authority is absolute and supreme.
It is not necessary to belong to a coven, and many Wiccans don’t. Some prefer to work on their own. These witches are called Solitary Practitioners.
