The Cauldron is a non-profit-making, independent, esoteric magazine featuring serious and in-depth articles on traditional witchcraft, Wicca, ancient and modern paganism, magic and folklore. It has been published quarterly in the UK in February, May, August and November since 1976. It was founded to cater for pagan witches, giving space in particular to non-Gardnerian traditions of witchcraft and so provided some balance to The Wiccan (now Pagan Dawn), the mouthpiece of the Pagan Front (later the Pagan Federation). The Cauldron has been edited since its inception by Michael Howard who "has been active among pagans and ritual magicians since the early 1960s".
Contributions have included: "The Leaves of Hekate – the Plant Lore of the Thessaly Witches" by Daniel A. Schulke, "Land Guardianship" by Sarah Lawless, "Traditional Fairy Lore" by Professor Ronald Hutton.
