    Would it be fair to say however that Dianics can trace the lineage of their faith to Wicca though?

    Depends on what Dianic path we're talking about. Dianics tend to have two subsections; Dianic Wicca and Dianic Witchcraft. Dianic Wicca (which isn't as popular as Dianic Witchcraft) can trace their lineage to Wicca. However, Dianic Witchcraft is too diverse and has pulled from a lot of different sources (i.e. Charles Leland "Aradia" Gospel of Witches, some ceremonial paths, traditional, bit of Wicca, etc.), depending on the practitioner.

    As my sister Philosophia implied (and excuse me, Ma'am Ph if I got you wrong), it depends on the practitioner.

    I know the coven I practiced with and we have our thing. It is mostly traditionalist and probably very quaint, given what is now considered Wiccan. But I don't care for the differences. Dianics have their reasons for doing what they do and I respect them for it.
