Neopaganism



Neopaganism refers to modern efforts to recreate older pagan systems that were oppressed by the Christian church throughout the world. Practitioners rely on as much pre-Christian sources as possible, incorporating folklore and ethnographic traditions. Some neopagans focus on trying to recreate or revive Indigenous religions as accurately as possible, whereas others frame their practices as a modern reinterpretation of Indigenous spirituality. Practices that fall under neopaganism include Wicca, goddess worship, Heathenism (including Ásatrú), Druidry, ecospiritualism, and various reconstructionist movements.
