A History of Pagan Europe
The European Pagan heritage is one which historians generally overlook. In A History of Pagan Europe, Prudence Jones and Nigel Pennick recount the fascinating story of Europeam Paganism, and contend that the Pagan worldview has continuity over time and space and retains its influence on European life today. This book not only provides the first comprehensive definition of paganism, but is also the first to shed light on well-documented events which are usually glossed over or ignored from a covert Christian perspective.
From the massive civilizations of Greece and Rome to the barely-documented tribal systems of the Picts, the Finns and others on the northern margins of the continent, European Paganism is marked by Polytheism, a veneration of nature, and recognition of female divinity. The ancient religions are often not well known, and the evidence for their continuation is often misunderstood or misrepresented as "accident" or "superstition." It is evidence for such continuity which this book investigates.
Recording this vital, yet half-hidden European tradition, A History of PaganEuropeprovides journalists, theologians, social policy-makers and the general reader with an informed background to the resurgence of self-styled Pagan groups in the present day.
