Old Witchcraft Secrets
Before the invention of books, written knowledge was kept on scrolls. There was places such the library at Alexandria, Egypt where was said to contain over half a million scrolls of knowledge collected from all of the known world. In most of man's history the majority of people could not read or write. Consequently, books were imbued with a mystique by the majority of people, representing knowledge that was hidden to those who could not decipher the writings. That which was most likely to be written down was the most important knowledge, which to early man was spiritual wisdom.
