DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45476


Paganism is a diverse spiritual tradition characterised more by shared practices (orthopraxy) than by uniform beliefs (orthodoxy). It emphasises reverence for nature and personal responsibility for one's spiritual and ethical path. The concept of re-enchantment, or filling the world with magic and wonder, is also central to Paganism.
