The Pomegranate is the first International, peer-reviewed journal of Pagan studies. It provides a forum for papers, essays and symposia on both ancient and contemporary Pagan religious practices. The Pomegranate also publishes timely reviews of scholarly books in this growing field. The editors seek both new interpretations and re-examinations of those traditions marked both by an emphasis on nature as a source of sacred value (e.g., Wicca, modern Goddess religions) as well as those emphasizing continuity with a polytheistic past (e.g., Ásatrú and other forms of 'reconstructionist' Paganism). The editors also seek papers on the interplay between Pagan religious traditions, popular culture, literature, psychology and the arts.

A Horned God in Oklahoma?

An interesting story — a year old, but I just ran across it — about “deer men” in the 59,000-acre  Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. “We moved to another observation site to the northeast at the base of Mount Scott, the highest point out there,” Heying said. “We did a U-turn in the […]

Rethinking Bog People

In college I had a work-study job in the library, and my favorite part was shelving books, because I worked alone, deep in the stacks, and if I found something interesting, I could skim it quickly and either check it out or come back for it. One day I rolled my cart up to the […]

Old friends, long time fans, today at 4am Margot breathed easily for the first time in two weeks. Later today, at 10:30am she was pronounced deceased.

By Lugh, I Think They’ve Got It

Reading the Pueblo Chieftain newspaper in a coffee house on Sunday morning, I turned to the weather/almanac page and learned something new. The coming weekend marks the ancient Celtic [sic] solar festival of Llamas. That was a divinely inspired typo. Given the prevalence of the subspecies dramaticus in the Pagan community, I think we should […]

No, “Ring around the Rosie” is not about the Black Death

For one thing, there are multiple versions recorded by folklorists and they do not “all fall down.” From the Library of Congress blog: The claim that the rhyme is related to pestilence is even younger; the folklorists who diligently recorded the rhyme itself in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries never mention the plague interpretation, […]

Beltania Festival Moves Closer to the Capitol

It was nice while it lasted, having a Pagan festival near enough that, if my schedule was too crowded, I could at least buy a day pass and hear the best concerts. Not any more. Beltania is pulling out of District 12* (where the coal miners once toiled) and moving closer to the Capitol — […]

“Choose How Cute or Evil She Should Be”

The sexy witch. The evil witch. The cute witch. What accessories should she wear? What animal is her familiar? And where did she come from? When I ran across this website (another update of the old paper doll), I thought of two things right away. One was a book co-authored by my friend Nikki Bado, […]

Around the Blogosphere, 17 July 2014

Plus, a Dutch psychiatrist who encourages it in his patients! ¶ You have read Ethan Doyle White’s interview with Ronald Hutton, right? If not, here it is. ¶ Two from Sarah Veale at Invocatio: • A PhD dissertation […]
