9780415373333: A History of Pagan Europe

With this second edition bringing the books completely up to date with analysis of recent work in the area, A History of Pagan Europe is the first comprehensive study of its kind, and establishes Paganism as a persistent force in European history with a profound influence on modern thinking.

From the serpent goddesses of ancient Crete to modern nature-worship and the restoration of the indigenous religions of Eastern Europe, this wide-ranging book offered a rewarding - often provocative - new perspective on European history.

This second edition includes:

  • expanded discussion of the significance of the Olympian pantheon and the interrelationship of Greece and the Near East, and of the synthesis of paganism and Christianity
  • new analysis of twentieth-century paganism and the coherence of paganism across time
  • a new glossary and chronology.

A History of Pagan Europe is essential for all readers interested in the development of religions across the centuries and around the globe.
