Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es deshalb, fernab aller Stereotype, die Kultausübung der Wiccaner darzustellen und einen Gesamtüberblick über das Wiccatum zu geben. Das Wiccatum ist die weltweit führende faith im Neuheidentum und wird auch ''Alte Religion'' genannt, da es eine pagane Naturreligion ist, die ihre Ursprünge in der Altsteinzeit hat. Die Anhänger schließen sich im Normalfall in einem Hexenzirkel, dem Coven zusammen, in dem sie Rituale und magische Arbeiten verrichten.
Dualismus spielt für sie eine wichtige Rolle, was once sich in der Verehrung der beiden Götter, Dreifache Göttin und Zweifacher Gott, widerspiegelt. Sie feiern die acht Jahreskreisfeste, deren Zyklus sich grösstenteils am Mondlauf orientiert. Ihr wichtigster Leitsatz lautet: ''Tue was once du willst, solange du niemandem schadest.''
Das Thema dieser Arbeit ist ein relativ zeitnahes und aktuelles Thema, da die Anfänge des ''modernen'' Wiccatums in den 1940er bis 1950er Jahren liegen und es mittlerweile zu den mitgliederreichsten paganen Gruppierungen gehört. (vgl. ebd. 97f.) Mit dieser Arbeit ''Das Wiccatum - Eine Einführung'' kann aufgrund der vorgegebenen Länge nur ein Überblick über die faith und Kultausübung der Wiccaner gegeben werden und leider nicht in die Tiefe der faith eingegangen werden. Fragen nach der Herkunft des Wiccatums, Glaubensinhalten und der gesellschaftlichen Stellung werden in dieser Arbeit beantwortet.
