Neopaganism, sometimes referred to simply as Paganism,[1] is an umbrella term used to identify a wide variety of modern religious movements, particularly those influenced by the pre-Christian pagan beliefs of Europe.[2][3] Neo-Pagan religious movements are extremely diverse, with a wide range of beliefs including polytheism, animism, pantheism, and other paradigms. Many Neopagans practise a spirituality that is entirely modern in origin, while others attempt to accurately reconstruct or revive indigenous, ethnic religions as found in historical and folkloric sources.[4]

Neopaganism is a development in the industrialized countries, found in particular strength in the United States and Britain, but also in Continental Europe (German-speaking Europe, Scandinavia, Slavic Europe, Latin Europe and elsewhere) and Canada. The largest Neopagan religion is Wicca, though other significantly sized Neopagan faiths include Neo-druidism, Germanic Neopaganism, and Slavic Neopaganism.
