Paganism & Wicca - What Is A Coven?

 

A coven is a group or society of witches. 


  • The term seems to have been originally used in Scotland in the sixteenth century. 
  • The terms "convene," "convention," "convent," and "conventicle" are all related. 
  • Convent and conventicle are terms that refer to women's spiritual meetings. 
  • The term "coven" refers to a group of witches, which might include both men and women. 
  • Covens may be informal or formal in nature. 
  • Some traditions believe that each coven must have 13 members; others prefer various numbers like as nine, three, or four; while yet others think that there is no set number.
