Ch.12 Cakes & Wine (WMB 12.c)

Chapter 12 - Cakes And Wine - continued (c)

The Key of Solomon contains a reference to what we now call Cakes & Wine, though it is in the context of offerings rather than the previously discussed Eucharistic form.

“But when we make sacrifices of food and drink, everything necessary should be prepared without the Circle, and the meats should be covered with some fine clean cloth, and also have a clean white cloth spread beneath them; with new bread and sparkling wine.”

The idea of the Cakes & Wine as offerings is also as valid as that of the Eucharist. As already stated, the Egyptians offered food and wine to their gods, and also to their ancestors. This has been a common practice in many cultures around the world throughout history.

My name is Sorita d'Este

and this is my website and blog!  Thanks for visiting - I hope you are finding what you are looking for!


Many years ago I dedicated myself to the pursuit of both esoteric knowledge, and an understanding of polytheism, the Gods and Nature.  I have been a full-time writer, author and publisher, specialising subjects linked to the occult, witchcraft, Paganism, mythology, ancient religions and magic - and all kinds of things in between since 2003. 


I live on a hill in Glastonbury, overlooking the marshes of Somerset,  a place of myth and legend, and a crossroad for many different religions. Here I am frequently found digging and growing, serving my fluffy rescue cat and navigating the unknown with my teenage son.
