Strmiska and Graham Harvey—characterises modern Paganism as a single religion, of which groups like Wicca, Druidry, and Heathenry are denominations.

Contemporary Paganism has been defined as "a collection of modern religious, spiritual, and magical traditions that are self-consciously inspired by the pre-Judaic, pre-Christian, and pre-Islamic belief systems of Europe, North Africa, and the Near East.

Discussing the relationship between the different Pagan religions, religious studies scholars Kaarina Aitamurto and Scott Simpson wrote that they were "like siblings who have taken different paths in life but still retain many visible similarities".

Some practitioners eschew the term "Pagan" altogether, preferring the more specific name of their religion, such as Heathen or Wiccan.

Various Pagans who are active in Pagan studies, such as Michael York and Prudence Jones, have argued that, due to similarities in their worldviews, the modern Pagan movement can be treated as part of the same global phenomenon as pre-Christian religion, living indigenous religions , and world religions like Hinduism , Shinto , and Afro-American religions.

They have also suggested that these could all be included under the rubric of "paganism" or "Paganism". Many scholars have favored the use of "Neopaganism" to describe this phenomenon, with the prefix "neo-" serving to distinguish the modern religions from their ancient, pre-Christian forerunners.

The term "neo-pagan" was coined in the 19th century in reference to Renaissance and Romanticist Hellenophile classical revivalism.

The modern popularisation of the terms pagan and neopagan as they are currently understood is largely traced to Oberon Zell-Ravenheart , co-founder of the 1st Neo-Pagan Church of All Worlds who, beginning in with the early issues of Green Egg , used both terms for the growing movement.

This usage has been common since the pagan revival in the s. According to Strmiska, the reappropriation of the term "pagan" by modern Pagans served as "a deliberate act of defiance" against "traditional, Christian-dominated society", allowing them to use it as a source of "pride and power".

For some Pagan groups, ethnicity is central to their religion, and some restrict membership to a single ethnic group.

Although they acknowledged that it was "a highly simplified model", Aitamurto and Simpson wrote that there was "some truth" to the claim that leftist -oriented forms of Paganism were prevalent in North America and the British Isles while rightist -oriented forms of Paganism were prevalent in Central and Eastern Europe.

Another division within modern Paganism rests on differing attitudes to the source material surrounding pre-Christian belief systems.

On the reconstructionist side can be placed those movements which often favour the designation "Native Faith", including Romuva , Heathenry , and Hellenism.

Strmiska nevertheless notes that this reconstructionist-eclectic division is "neither as absolute nor as straightforward as it might appear".

Some Pagans distinguish their beliefs and practices as a form of religious naturalism , embracing a naturalistic worldview, [52] including those who identify as humanistic or atheopagans.

Many such Pagans aim for an explicitly ecocentric practice, which may overlap with scientific pantheism.

Although inspired by the pre-Christian belief systems of the past, modern Paganism is not the same phenomenon as these lost traditions and in many respects differs from them considerably.

Eclectic Paganism takes an undogmatic religious stance [56] and therefore potentially sees no one as having authority to deem a source apocryphal.

Contemporary paganism has therefore been prone to fakelore , especially in recent years as information and misinformation alike have been spread on the Internet and in print media.

A number of Wiccan , pagan and even some Traditionalist or Tribalist groups have a history of Grandmother Stories — typically involving initiation by a Grandmother, Grandfather, or other elderly relative who is said to have instructed them in the secret, millennia-old traditions of their ancestors.

As this secret wisdom can almost always be traced to recent sources, tellers of these stories have often later admitted they made them up.

Beliefs and practices vary widely among different Pagan groups; however, there are a series of core principles common to most, if not all, forms of modern paganism.

One principle of the Pagan movement is polytheism , the belief in and veneration of multiple gods or goddesses. One view in the Pagan community is that these polytheistic deities are not viewed as literal entities, but as Jungian archetypes or other psychological constructs that exist in the human psyche.

It is its inclusion of female deity which distinguishes Pagan religions from their Abrahamic counterparts. There are exceptions to polytheism in Paganism, [69] as seen for instance in the form of Ukrainian Paganism promoted by Lev Sylenko , which is devoted to a monotheistic veneration of the god Dazhbog.

Pagan religions commonly exhibit a metaphysical concept of an underlying order that pervades the universe, such as the concept of harmonia embraced by Hellenists and that of Wyrd found in Heathenry.

A key part of most Pagan worldviews is the holistic concept of a universe that is interconnected. This is connected with a belief in either pantheism or panentheism.

In both beliefs, divinity and the material or spiritual universe are one. Dennis D. Carpenter noted that the belief in a pantheistic or panentheistic deity has led to the idea of interconnectedness playing a key part in pagans' worldviews.

What affects one of us affects us all. Another pivotal belief in the contemporary Pagan movement is that of animism.

First, it can refer to a belief that everything in the universe is imbued with a life force or spiritual energy. Some Pagans have reported experiencing communication with spirits dwelling in rocks, plants, trees and animals, as well as power animals or animal spirits who can act as spiritual helpers or guides.

Animism was also a concept common to many pre-Christian European religions, and in adopting it, contemporary Pagans are attempting to "reenter the primeval worldview" and participate in a view of cosmology "that is not possible for most Westerners after childhood".

All Pagan movements place great emphasis on the divinity of nature as a primary source of divine will , and on humanity's membership of the natural world, bound in kinship to all life and the Earth itself.

The animistic aspects of Pagan theology assert that all things have a soul - not just humans or organic life - so this bond is held with mountains and rivers as well as trees and wild animals.

As a result, Pagans believe the essence of their spirituality is both ancient and timeless, regardless of the age of specific religious movements.

Places of natural beauty are therefore treated as sacred and ideal for ritual, like the nemetons of the ancient Celts.

While the Pagan community has tremendous variety in political views spanning the whole of the political spectrum , environmentalism is often a common feature.

Such views have also led many pagans to revere the planet Earth as Mother Earth , who is often referred to as Gaia after the ancient Greek goddess of the Earth.

Pagan ritual can take place in both a public and private setting. Sociologist Margot Adler highlighted how several Pagan groups, like the Reformed Druids of North America and the Erisian movement incorporate a great deal of play in their rituals rather than having them be completely serious and somber.

She noted that there are those who would argue that "the Pagan community is one of the only spiritual communities that is exploring humor, joy, abandonment, even silliness and outrageousness as valid parts of spiritual experience".

Domestic worship typically takes place in the home and is carried out by either an individual or family group. Paganism's public rituals are generally calendrical, [70] although the pre-Christian festivals that Pagans use as a basis varied across Europe.

The belief in magickal rituals and spells is held by a "significant number" of contemporary Pagans.

Many Neopagans adhere to the definition of magick provided by Aleister Crowley , the founder of Thelema : "the Science and Art of causing change to occur in conformity with Will".

Also accepted by many is the related definition purportedly provided by the ceremonial magician Dion Fortune : "magick is the art and science of changing consciousness according to the Will".

Among those who practice magic are Wiccans , those who identify as Neopagan Witches, and practitioners of some forms of revivalist Neo-druidism , the rituals of which are at least partially based upon those of ceremonial magic and freemasonry.

The origins of modern Paganism lie in the romanticist and national liberation movements that developed in Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Romantic movement of the 18th century led to the re-discovery of Old Gaelic and Old Norse literature and poetry.

In Germany the Völkisch movement was in full swing. These pagan currents coincided with Romanticist interest in folklore and occultism , the widespread emergence of pagan themes in popular literature, and the rise of nationalism.

The rise of modern Paganism was aided by the decline in Christianity throughout many parts of Europe and North America, [88] as well as by the concomitant decline in enforced religious conformity and greater freedom of religion that developed, allowing people to explore a wider range of spiritual options and form religious organisations that could operate free from legal persecution.

Historian Ronald Hutton has argued that many of the motifs of 20th century neo-Paganism may be traced back to the utopian, mystical counter-cultures of the late-Victorian and Edwardian periods also extending in some instances into the s , via the works of amateur folklorists, popular authors, poets, political radicals and alternative lifestylers.

Prior to the spread of the 20th-century neopagan movement, a notable instance of self-identified paganism was in Sioux writer Zitkala-sa's essay "Why I Am A Pagan".

Published in the Atlantic Monthly in , the Native American activist and writer outlined her rejection of Christianity referred to as "the new superstition" in favor of a harmony with nature embodied by the Great Spirit.

She further recounted her mother's abandonment of Sioux religion and the unsuccessful attempts of a "native preacher" to get her to attend the village church.

In the s Margaret Murray theorized that a secret underground religion had survived the witchcraft prosecutions enacted by the ecclesiastical and secular courts.

Most historians now reject Murray's theory, as she based it partially upon the similarities of the accounts given by those accused of witchcraft ; such similarity is now thought to actually derive from there having been a standard set of questions laid out in the witch-hunting manuals used by interrogators.

In the s, Wicca was notably influenced by feminism, leading to the creation of an eclectic, Goddess -worshipping movement known as Dianic Wicca.

These open, unstructured or loosely structured traditions contrast with British Traditional Wicca , which emphasizes secrecy and initiatory lineage.

The s and s also saw an increasing interest in serious academic research and reconstructionist pagan traditions. The establishment and growth of the Internet in the s brought rapid growth to these, and other pagan movements.

Goddess Spirituality, which is also known as the Goddess movement, is a Pagan religion in which a singular, monotheistic Goddess is given predominance.

Designed primarily for women, Goddess Spirituality revolves around the sacredness of the female form, and of aspects of women's lives that have been traditionally neglected in western society, such as menstruation, sexuality and maternity.

Adherents of the Goddess Spirituality movement typically envision a history of the world that is different from traditional narratives about the past, emphasising the role of women rather than that of men.

According to this view, human society was formerly a matriarchy , with communities being egalitarian, pacifistic and focused on the worship of the Goddess, and was subsequently overthrown by violent patriarchal hordes - usually Indo-European pastoralists , who worshipped male sky gods and who continued to rule through the form of Abrahamic Religions , specifically Christianity in the West.

Adherents look for elements of this mythological history in "theological, anthropological, archaeological, historical, folkloric and hagiographic writings".

Heathenism, also known as Germanic Neopaganism, refers to a series of contemporary Pagan traditions based on the historical religions, culture and literature of Germanic-speaking Europe.

Heathenry is spread out across northwestern Europe, North America and Australasia, where the descendants of historic Germanic-speaking people now live.

Many Heathen groups adopt variants of Norse mythology as a basis for their beliefs, conceiving of the Earth as on the great world tree Yggdrasil.

Heathens believe in multiple polytheistic deities adopted from historical Germanic mythologies. Most are polytheistic realists, believing that the deities are real entities, while others view them as Jungian archetypes.

Neo-Druidry is the second-largest pagan path after Wicca, [ citation needed ] and shows similar heterogeneity. It draws inspirations from historical Druids , the priest caste of the ancient pagan Celts.

Neo-Druidry dates to the earliest forms of modern paganism: the Ancient Order of Druids founded in had many aspects of freemasonry , and has practiced rituals at Stonehenge since Since the s and '70s, paganism and the then emergent counterculture , New Age , and hippie movements experienced a degree of cross-pollination.

Most pagans are not committed to a single defined tradition, but understand paganism as encompassing a wide range of non-institutionalized spirituality, as promoted by the Church of All Worlds , the Feri Tradition and other movements.

Notably, Wicca in the United States since the s has largely moved away from its Gardnerian roots and diversified into eclectic variants.

Paganism generally emphasizes the sanctity of the Earth and Nature. Pagans often feel a duty to protect the Earth through activism , and support causes such as rain forest protection, organic farming , permaculture , and animal rights.

Some pagans are influenced by Animist traditions of the indigenous Native Americans and Africans and other indigenous or shamanic traditions.

Eco-paganism and Eco-magic, which are offshoots of direct action environmental groups, strongly emphasize fairy imagery and a belief in the possibility of intercession by the fae fairies, pixies , gnomes , elves , and other spirits of nature and the Otherworlds.

Some Unitarian Universalists are eclectic pagans. Unitarian Universalists look for spiritual inspiration in a wide variety of religious beliefs.

The Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans , or CUUPs, encourages its chapters to "use practices familiar to members who attend for worship services but not to follow only one tradition of paganism".

In , the Czech esotericist Franz Sättler founded the pagan religion Adonism , devoted to the ancient Greek god Adonis , whom Sättler equated with the Christian Satan, and which purported that the end of the world would come in Adonism largely died out in the s, but remained an influence on the German occult scene.

Pagan-specializing religious scholar Christine Hoff Kraemer wrote, "Pagans tend to be relatively accepting of same-sex relationships , BDSM , polyamory , transgender , and other expressions of gender and sexuality that are marginalized by mainstream society.

And a way to connect with all kinds of people—gay, bi, straight, celibate, transgender—in a way that is hard to do in the greater society.

Transgender existence and acceptability is especially controversial in many neopagan sects. One of the most notable of these is Dianic Wicca.

This female-only , radical feminist variant of Wicca allows cisgender lesbians but not transgender women. This is due to Dianic belief in gender essentialism ; according to founder Zsuzsanna Budapest , "you have to have sometimes [sic] in your life a womb, and ovaries and [mensturate] and not die".

This belief and the way it is expressed is often denounced as transphobia and trans-exclusionary radical feminism.

Trans exclusion can also be found in Alexandrian Wicca , whose founder views trans individuals as melancholy people who should seek other beliefs due to the Alexandrian focus on heterosexual reproduction and duality.

In contrast to the eclectic traditions, Polytheistic Reconstructionists practice culturally specific ethnic traditions based on folklore, songs and prayers, as well as reconstructions from the historical record.

Wicca is the largest form of modern Paganism, [40] as well as the best-known [] and most extensively studied.

Religious studies scholar Graham Harvey noted that the poem " Charge of the Goddess " remains central to the liturgy of most Wiccan groups.

Originally written by Wiccan High Priestess Doreen Valiente in the mids, the poem allows Wiccans to gain wisdom and experience deity in "the ordinary things in life".

Historian Ronald Hutton identified a wide variety of different sources that influenced Wicca's development, including ceremonial magic , folk magic , Romanticist literature, Freemasonry , and the historical theories of English archaeologist Margaret Murray.

He claimed to have been initiated by the New Forest coven in , and that the religion that he discovered was a modern remnant of the old Witch-Cult described in Murray's works, which originated in the pre-Christian paganism of Europe.

Other forms loosely based on Gardner's teachings are Faery Wicca , Kemetic Wicca , Judeo-Paganism or jewitchery, and Dianic Wicca or feminist Wicca, which emphasizes the divine feminine, often creating women-only or lesbian-only groups.

In the s, Wiccan beliefs and practices were used as a partial basis for a number of U. Vattisen Yaly could be categorised as a peculiar form of Tengrism , a related revivalist movement of Central Asian traditional religion, however it differs significantly from it: the Chuvash being a heavily Fennicised and Slavified ethnicity they were also never fully Islamised , contrarywise to most of other Turks , and having had exchanges also with other Indo-European ethnicities, [] their religion shows many similarities with Finnic and Slavic Paganisms; moreover, the revival of "Vattisen Yaly" in recent decades has occurred following Neopagan patterns.

Today the followers of the Chuvash Traditional Religion are called "the true Chuvash". Establishing precise figures on Paganism is difficult.

Due to the secrecy and fear of persecution still prevalent among Pagans, limited numbers are willing to openly be counted.

The decentralised nature of Paganism and sheer number of solitary practitioners further complicates matters.

Neopagan and other folk religion movements have gained a significant [ citation needed ] following on the eastern fringes of Europe, especially in the Caucasus and the Volga region.

The Mari native religion in fact has a continuous existence, but has co-existed with Orthodox Christianity for centuries, and experienced a renewal after the fall of the Soviet Union.

A sociological survey conducted in found that about 15 percent of the population of Mari El consider themselves adherents of the Mari native religion.

Since Mari make up just 45 percent of the republic's population of ,, this figure means that probably more than a third claim to follow the old religion.

Mari fled here from forced Christianization in the 17th to 19th centuries. A study by Ronald Hutton compared a number of different sources including membership lists of major UK organizations, attendance at major events, subscriptions to magazines, etc.

This estimate accounted for multiple membership overlaps as well as the number of adherents represented by each attendee of a pagan gathering.

Hutton estimated that there are , neopagan adherents in the United Kingdom , roughly equivalent to the national Hindu community.

A smaller number is suggested by the results of the Census , in which a question about religious affiliation was asked for the first time.

Respondents were able to write in an affiliation not covered by the checklist of common religions, and a total of 42, people from England, Scotland and Wales declared themselves to be Pagans by this method.

These figures were not released as a matter of course by the Office for National Statistics , but were released after an application by the Pagan Federation of Scotland.

It is also fewer than the adherents of Jediism , whose campaign made them the fourth largest religion after Christianity, Islam and Hinduism.

The UK Census figures did not allow an accurate breakdown of traditions within the Pagan heading, as a campaign by the Pagan Federation before the census encouraged Wiccans, Heathens, Druids and others all to use the same write-in term 'Pagan' in order to maximise the numbers reported.

The census however made it possible to describe oneself as Pagan-Wiccan, Pagan-Druid and so on. The figures for England and Wales showed 80, describing themselves as Pagan or some subgroup thereof.

The largest subgroup was Wicca, with 11, adherents. In about seven people per 10, UK respondents were pagan; in the number based on the England and Wales population was Census figures in Ireland do not provide a breakdown of religions outside of the major Christian denominations and other major world religions.

A total of 22, people stated Other Religion in the census; and a rough estimate is that there were 2,—3, practicing pagans in Ireland in Numerous pagan groups — primarily Wiccan and Druidic — exist in Ireland though none is officially recognised by the Government.

Irish Paganism is often strongly concerned with issues of place and language. Canada does not provide extremely detailed records of religious adherence.

Its statistics service only collects limited religious information each decade. At the census , there were a recorded 21 Pagans in Canada.

The United States government does not directly collect religious information. As a result such information is provided by religious institutions and other third-party statistical organisations.

According to Helen A. In the Australian census , 32 respondents identified as Pagan. The Australian Bureau of Statistics classifies Paganism as an affiliation under which several sub-classifications may optionally be specified.

This includes animism , nature religion , Druidism , pantheism , and Witchcraft. As a result, fairly detailed breakdowns of Pagan respondents are available.

In , there were at least 6 1. Based upon her study of the pagan community in the United States, the sociologist Margot Adler noted that it is rare for Pagan groups to proselytize in order to gain new converts to their faiths.

Instead, she argued that "in most cases", converts first become interested in the movement through "word of mouth, a discussion between friends, a lecture, a book, an article or a Web site".

She went on to put forward the idea that this typically confirmed "some original, private experience, so that the most common experience of those who have named themselves pagan is something like 'I finally found a group that has the same religious perceptions I always had ' ".

When she eventually came across the Wiccan religion many years later, she then found that it confirmed her earlier childhood experiences, and that "I never converted in the accepted sense.

I simply accepted, reaffirmed, and extended a very old experience. Folklorist Sabina Magliocco supported this idea, noting that a great many of those Californian Pagans whom she interviewed claimed that they had been greatly interested in mythology and folklore as children, imagining a world of "enchanted nature and magical transformations, filled with lords and ladies, witches and wizards, and humble but often wise peasants".

Magliocco noted that it was this world that pagans "strive to re-create in some measure". Many pagans in North America encounter the movement through their involvement in other hobbies; particularly popular with U.

Other manners in which many North American pagans have got involved with the movement are through political or ecological activism, such as "vegetarian groups, health food stores" or feminist university courses.

Adler went on to note that from those she interviewed and surveyed in the U. Based upon her work in the United States, Adler found that the pagan movement was "very diverse" in its class and ethnic background.

The sociologist Regina Oboler examined the role of gender in the U. Pagan community, arguing that although the movement had been constant in its support for the equality of men and women ever since its foundation, there was still an essentialist view of gender engrained within it, with female deities being accorded traditional western feminine traits and male deities being similarly accorded what western society saw as masculine traits.

An issue of academic debate has been regarding the connection between the New Age movement and contemporary Paganism, or Neo-Paganism.

Religious studies scholar Sarah Pike asserted that there was a "significant overlap" between the two religious movements, [] while Aidan A.

Kelly stated that Paganism "parallels the New Age movement in some ways, differs sharply from it in others, and overlaps it in some minor ways".

Many Pagans have sought to distance themselves from the New Age movement, even using "New Age" as an insult within their community, while conversely many involved in the New Age have expressed criticism of Paganism for emphasizing the material world over the spiritual.

Because of their common links to the Proto-Indo-European culture, many adherents of modern Paganism have come to regard Hinduism as a spiritual relative.

Some modern Pagan literature prominently features comparative religion involving European and Indian traditions. The European Congress of Ethnic Religions has made efforts to establish mutual support with Hindu groups, as has the Lithuanian Romuva movement.

In India, a prominent figure who made similar efforts was the Hindu revivalist Ram Swarup , who pointed out parallels between Hinduism and European and Arabic paganism.

Swarup reached out to modern Pagans in the West. He also had an influence on Western converts to Hinduism, notably David Frawley and Koenraad Elst , who both have described Hinduism as a form of paganism.

In the Islamic World , Pagans are not considered people of the book , so they are not protected under islamic religious law.

Strmiska writes that "in Pagan magazines, websites, and Internet discussion venues, Christianity is frequently denounced as an antinatural, antifemale, sexually and culturally repressive, guilt-ridden, and authoritarian religion that has fostered intolerance, hypocrisy, and persecution throughout the world.

Some Christian authors have published books criticizing modern Paganism, [34] while other Christian critics have equated Paganism with Satanism , which is often portrayed as such in mainstream entertainment industry.

In areas such as the U. Bible Belt , where conservative Christian dominance is strong, Pagans have faced continued religious persecution.

The earliest academic studies of contemporary Paganism were published in the late s and s by scholars like Margot Adler , Marcello Truzzi and Tanya Luhrmann , although it would not be until the s that the actual multidisciplinary academic field of Pagan studies properly developed, pioneered by academics such as Graham Harvey and Chas S.

Increasing academic interest in Paganism has been attributed to the new religious movement's increasing public visibility, as it began interacting with the interfaith movement and holding large public celebrations at sites like Stonehenge.

The first international academic conference on the subject of Pagan studies was held at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne , North-East England in The relationship between Pagan studies scholars and some practising Pagans has at times been strained.

The Australian academic and practising Pagan Caroline Jane Tully argues that many Pagans can react negatively to new scholarship regarding historical pre-Christian societies, believing that it is a threat to the structure of their beliefs and to their "sense of identity".

She furthermore argues that some of those dissatisfied Pagans lashed out against academics as a result, particularly on the Internet.

New religious movements influenced by, or derived from, various historical beliefs of pre-modern peoples. In the first case, there is a deeply felt need to connect with the past as a source of spiritual strength and wisdom; in the second case, there is the idealistic hope that a spirituality of nature can be gleaned from ancient sources and shared with all humanity.

See also: Gaia hypothesis , Naturalistic pantheism , and Secular paganism. Thus, with only a few possible exceptions, today's Pagans cannot claim to be continuing religious traditions handed down in an unbroken line from ancient times to the present.
