About Paganism - The Basics
The Basics | What Paganism Is | Nature Veneration | Polytheism | The Goddess | Other Characteristics | Modern Paganism

Pagans may be trained in particular traditions or they may follow their own inspiration. Paganism is not dogmatic. Pagans pursue their own vision of the Divine as a direct and personal experience.

The "Pagan Federation", recognizes the rich diversity of traditions that make up the modern paganism. It is not possible to describe each individual in a brief introduction. Nowadays there are various traditions like Wicca, Druidism, the Nordic Tradition, Shamanism, and other. This list is not exhaustive, but these traditions provide a good overview of modern practices of the pagans.

Some authors see the emergence of Paganism in the twentieth century as a revival of an older Pagan religion and describe all the above traditions as Neo-Pagan.

This term is also used to describe all those who are recognisably Pagan, but who do not adhere to any of the above traditions per se.
