The Old Religion
Subject Areas: Religious Studies
The theme of this article is a movement that has been called the fastestgrowing religion in the US. Nobody knows exactly how many Americans identify themselves as Witches, Wiccans, and Neopagans. The number has been estimated as anywhere from 200,000 to 500,000, but there are no hard statistics and few formal organizations. Besides, religious prejudice still makes it
expedient for may of today’s Pagans to keep quiet about their preferences.
