"Paganism is the ancestral religion of the whole of humanity."

-- The Pagan Federation

"Neo-Paganism strives to revive authentic pantheons and rituals of ancient cultures, though often in deliberately eclectic and reconstructionist ways, and is characterized by a particularly contemplative and celebrative attitude."

-- Encyclopedia Britannica



Neo-Paganism (also spelled Neopaganism and also known as Paganism) is an increasingly popular religious movement emphasizing ancient pagan religious traditions and reverence for nature. It takes a variety of forms known as "paths," which range from Wicca, which focuses on spells and goddess worship, to Hellenic Polytheism, which seeks to revive Greek paganism in an academically accurate form. The articles in this section explain both the common characteristics and diverse forms of Neopaganism.
