However, it’s usually not as cut and dry as those words make it seem. Rarely do I actually hear words that come from an obviously external source. It does happen, but when it does, They’re usually pretty succinct. I may get . . . → Read More: Hearing the Gods

The Gods of Small Things

By Galina Krasskova

I am a Latin teacher currently (and laboriously) working my way toward a PhD in Classics. I read a lot of Latin texts (in Latin and usually with quite a bit of cussing along the way as I attempt to untangle classical Latin syntax). Fortunately, for the most part, I enjoy this . . . → Read More: The Gods of Small Things

T is for Tribe

By Seba

Last March at the Pagans of the Deep South Gathering, I was rather stunned (okay, I was Hopping John pissed) at the derogatory use of our term “tribe.” It came off about as un-Southern as it could have, was spoken to my husband and went something like so, just how invested are you . . . → Read More: T is for Tribe

“They don’t really believe that, do they?” is a refrain that I find familiar, expected and, frankly, tiring. As someone who researches white supremacists and doomsday prophets, I should be used to it. The query confronts me in the classroom, at conferences, at the dinner table, and most often conspiratorially in the . . . → Read More: What’s Belief Got to Do with It?

Musings on Hellenic Priesthood

By Elani Temperance

I think I mentioned before that priesthood in ancient Hellas was a lot different from priesthood as we understand it now.

The primary tasks of a . . . → Read More: Musings on Hellenic Priesthood

The Dianic Wiccan Wheel of the Year

Evil, Ethics and Freedom

By Sam Webster

Theodicy, the theological study of evil, is one of the stumbling blocks of religion. I have a few thoughts on the subject, which I doubt will end the matter, but perhaps shed a certain Pagan light on it. In general theodicy is trying to answer the question, “Why do bad things happen . . . → Read More: Evil, Ethics and Freedom
