Welcome to My Library
I welcome you to my Bibliotheca Veneficae Literary Parlor, a unique bookstore and library where books whisper to you the truths behind our Universe and our Existence.
Vivienne, the Salonnière
My name is Vivienne and I’m the gatherer behind Bibliotheca Veneficae Literary Parlor. I live in the forest raising my children surrounded by cats, snakes, turtles, birds, and fish. Spending my days reading, learning, and caring for my kids and pets is what I do the most. I have a visceral love for Nature and anything that is historical and therefore has a story to tell. I’m on the quest to visiting quaint towns and castles in the historical Pennsylvania. After spending many years in Italy I can assure you that walls whisper, to those who can listen, the times long gone.
Origin and Purpose behind Bibliotheca Veneficae
Bibliotheca Veneficae comes from the Latin and it means The Witch’s Library. The purpose behind Bibliotheca Veneficae comes from the intent of recreating a virtual library, the one you would find in a dedicated house instilled in Victorian and older stories, legends and truths. A library that smells of vanilla, cedarwood, rose, and patchouli. Every time you come here, I want you to feel at home, in the comfort of my library, sitting and sipping a cup of tea while reading of gothic stories or reading of women and men who in a way or another have contributed to our evolution.
The Rosicrucian Order
Recently, I became a member of the Rosicrucian Order. Its teachings carry wisdom and give me a sense of tranquility that I had never felt before. If you’re interested in Rosicrucianism, you can contact me or read about it in the Free Resources and Blog pages.
Bookstore: Books for sale
I also invite you to explore the books for sale. As a lifelong learner, I’ve always found myself learning and at times practicing the less known paths. I have no prejudice regarding the philosophies and the several paths in the Occult world. I believe that prejudice would limit my learning and understanding of our Inner Nature, our Evolution, and our Cosmo and its laws. On the shop page, a variety of books awaits for you and I hope you will use this bookstore and library as a tool for both your light and shadow works or simply for the pleasure of your soul.
Enjoy your reading and thank you for being here.
Vivienne, the Librarian.
