Pagans: The Visual Culture of Pagan Myths, Legends and Rituals
We were luck enough to get our hands on a copy of Pagans: The Visual Culture of Pagan Myths, Legends, and Rituals, the latest offering from Ethan Doyle White. They say to never judge a book by its cover, but in this case, the gorgeous cover echoes the interior. Filled with eclectic and beautiful visuals, from paintings to photographs of sculptures, shrines, and ceremonial objects that reveal the stories, symbols, and rituals of Paganism through history, and across the world. For over a thousand years, a wide and diverse range of people have been labelled ‘Pagan’ by the Christians who encountered them. This book offers a clear, concise, and detailed analysis of the rich array of traditions, rituals and beliefs held by different groups – both in the past and present day. From revered plants imbued with supernatural powers to amulets that have been hand carved to protect against evil, from spirits of nature to sacred spaces, White explores how Pagans have found divinity in the natural world, and spirituality in the material universe.
