Abstract
Modern Pagan or Native Faith movements are “religious” movements in the sense of being concerned with “spiritual” and “sacred” matters such as the worship of deities, the articulation of values and ethics, and the organization of communal ritual activities, but are also, at least in part, social and political movements as they inevitably reflect upon and respond to political and social trends of their time and place. Indeed, the core Pagan project of revisiting and refashioning pre-Christian religions of the European past for use in the current day often expresses a fundamental discontent with the conditions of contemporary life and a wish to transform modern life in a Pagan manner, however differently this might be interpreted by Pagan movements in different locations. Our theme this year is intended to encourage scholars to reflect on the ways in which Native Faith or Modern Pagan religious movements address political and social trends in their respective national contexts.
