Witchcraft and Paganism in Australia
Alternative spiritual practices are attracting increasing numbers of followers in Australia and around the world, and the author focusing on Wicca, or witchcraft, Lynne Hume explores some of the mystery surrounding the diverse range of pagan practices and beliefs, and dispels some commonly held misconceptions. She examines in a multidisciplinary study, the historical roots of pagan beliefs, and how pagan worldviews relate to the contemporary environmentalism, feminism, morality and mainstream religions. There is discussion of the rituals of paganism and the notion of magic and what constitutes spiritual experience. Based partly on the author’s own experiences, the book is full of insights into this intriguing social phenomena.
