DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45475


Paganism is a diverse and individualised belief system beyond official religious doctrines. Pagans celebrate a deep connection with nature, view the world as "enchanted," and embrace a belief in magic and wonder. At the heart of this worldview is an ethical respect for the Earth. The shared appreciation of the Earth unifies the variety of traditions within Paganism.
