Witches of East End Library Window

A spell is cast by one of the three daughters with the library window in the background.The Lifetime television network premiered the series "Witches of East End" on October 6th, 2013. In the show (based on the book by Melissa de la Cruz) there is a library where one of the Witches works.

The library has round windows adorned with Theban Script, a magical substitution cipher used by Witches, Wiccans, Pagans and other practitioners to obfuscate passages in written spells and books of shadows.  Theban script is also known as the Witches' Runes.

One of the windows at the mid landing on a set of stairs is featured clearly enough in the first season that the PaganPath staff has been able to attempt a translation.
