Wanted: A contemporary Pagan culture

By Erebos

Contemporary Paganism lacks a unified culture and without this Pagans may never really succeed in developing as a stand-alone spiritual or religious tradition.

Culture (from the Latin cultura stemming from colere, meaning to cultivate) is a term that has different meanings, two of which are:

• An integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behaviour that depends upon the capacity for symbolic thought and social learning,
• The set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution, organization or group.

Paganism especially fails in the second definition of culture, as its has no true set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution, organization or group.
