Abstract

Intense valorisation of nature and the natural is widely believed to be one of the hallmarks of contemporary paganism. This article explores different pagan attitudes to and interaction with nature in the context of an emergent pagan community in Newfoundland, and the extent to which the experience of pagan pluralism at a pan-pagan gathering in Atlantic Canada highlighted some issues and ambiguities in relation to nature and pagan identity. This data is used to draw broader conclusions about the role of nature in pagan identity and to suggest its assumed centrality should be questioned
