DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45524


This chapter explores the political beliefs of Pagans, ranging from left to right-wing ideologies. Paganism has been linked to cultural and political nationalism, but left-wing Paganism has aligned with feminist and environmental causes. Pagans generally support liberal democratic values, but studies indicate that Pagans in the UK and the US lean left, while in Central and Eastern Europe, conservative and nationalistic views are more prevalent.
