Paganisme

There has been much scholarly debate as to the origin of the term paganism , especially since no one before the 20th century self-identified as a pagan. [7] In the 19th century, paganism was re-adopted as a self-descriptor by members of various artistic groups inspired by the ancient world . In the 20th century, it came to be applied as a self-description by practitioners of contemporary pagan , or neopagan, religious movements who incorporate beliefs or practices different than those in the main world religions, such as nature worship. [8]

Paganism encompasses a diverse community with some groups concentrating on specific traditions, practices or elements such as ecology, witchcraft, Celtic traditions or certain gods.

From the point of view of the early Christians these religions all qualified as ethnic (or gentile , ethnikos , gentilis , the term translating goyim , later rendered as paganus ) in contrast with Second Temple Judaism .

The recognition of the divine in nature is at the heart of Pagan belief. Pagans are deeply aware of the natural world and see the power of the divine in the ongoing cycle of life and death. Most Pagans are eco-friendly, seeking to live in a way that minimises harm to the natural environment.
