The Correllian Tradition is a branch of Traditional Witchcraft which has identified as Wiccan since the 1970s, in much the same way as the Dianic Tradition identifies as Wiccan. Originally a familial Tradition, Correllianism has been an open, public Tradition since 1979, expanding rapidly since the late ’90s. Correllian Wicca places a very strong emphasis on the philosophical and theological aspects of Wicca, and stresses personal spiritual, magical, and psychic development. Correllian Wicca also places great importance on the idea of the Ancestors, meaning both the Ancestors of the Tradition as well as members’ physical and philosophical Ancestors.
Correllian Wicca celebrates the Wheel of the Year in the same manner as most Wiccan Traditions, but in addition to this also celebrates a twice-yearly rite of purification and blessing called the ”Lustration” which is considered uniquely Correllian. The Lustrations began as private, comparatively simple Ancestor-rituals practiced by the High-Correll family and the Correll Mother Temple to honor and maintain their connection to the Ancestors and bring through Oracles from them, and evolved into an elaborate public ceremony as the Tradition expanded.
