Paganism is an umbrella term. Let us explain all about it.
What is Paganism?
Paganism commonly refers to pre-Christian religions belonging to a number of ancient cultures, such as Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Celt and Norse. Modern pagans include Wiccans and those that practice the revived versions of the old ways. The word ‘pagan’ itself comes from the Latin paganus meaning “country dweller”, denoting a connection to place rather than to a specific religion.
Pagans are typically polytheistic or pantheistic. Polytheistic means the belief in or worship of more than one god. Pantheists identify God with the universe, or regards the universe as a manifestation of God. Paganism represents a wide variety of paths or traditions that typically emphasise a reverence for nature as its central tenet.
There are many Pagan Pathways. Read our downloadable brochure.
