Abstract

The number of practicing Pagans in Britain is increasing dramatically, but still Paganism is shrouded in a cloak of fear and misunderstanding. This collection of views reflects the diversity of traditions and thinking that characterize modern Paganism. The book looks at topics such as: whether Paganism is an ancient tradition or a new religion; a survey of the main magical groups in Britain; the goddess as a source of healing for modern women; the effect of WICCA on the practitioners of that tradition; what druids do; and being a Celt - is it a matter of spirit of heritage?
