Description - A History of Pagan Europe by Prudence Jones
Europe's pagan past holds a present fascination. Jones and Pennick describe the persistence of pagan attitudes in Europe, running from the ancient world, through the Celtic period to the present. The effect of classical paganism on modern European thought via liberal and public school education systems and the impact on other religions is examined. The authors also appraise modern paganism and its apparent causes, looking at such topics as nature-worship, feminism, the rediscovery of shamanism, astro-archaeology, and alternative medicine. This, a comprehensive history of European paganism, aims to provide a guide to this popular dimension of religious culture.
