Join Ronald Hutton for an exploration of the nature of modern Paganism and witchcraft in Britain, and by extension, across the rest of the Western world.

Pagan religions have reappeared in the West over the past seventy years, and represent some of the fastest growing kinds of religious belief at the present day: some scholars think them the fastest growing of all. Britain was the birthplace of the oldest and most important kinds, and so has a special place in their story.

Ronald intends this evening to pose and answer the following questions: Are there any continuous links between ancient Paganism and modern Paganism? What are the general characteristics of modern Paganism? What are the main varieties of modern Paganism, and what are the connections between some of them and witchcraft? Finally, is the reappearance of Paganism a good or a bad thing for modern society?

A Q&A will be held at the end of the talk.
