Front Cover
Rowman Altamira, 2006 - Religion - 191 pages
6 Reviews
The history of any religious movement can get murky. But the history of American Paganism with so many invented lineages, so many solitary practitioners, so much resistance to staid definition, so much hiddenness is especially hard to decipher. But here in Her Hidden Children Chas Clifton tells many never-before-told stories of the origins of Paganism and Wicca in the United States. The people, publications, and organizations that allowed Paganism and Wicca to set roots down in American soil and become "nature religion" are revealed in delicious detail. With a timeline, glossary, and photos of important figures, Her Hidden Children is compelling and important for any student of Paganism or American Religion."
