This dictionary provides a readily available collection of source material for a subject which has recently become of considerable public and academic interest. It provides a point of reference for key words and concepts which have previously been available only in short glossaries, footnotes, or within a body of text. It deals with concepts shared by all Pagans, and also with those concepts unique to a particular Pagan tradition.


' … Pearson succeeds splendidly in the endeavour she has undertaken and her ability to crystalize and make lucid a complex, messy and multiple social reality is indicative of both experience in and insight into the world of paganism.'

' … this book will prove an invaluable aid to both the relative newcomer to Paganism and indeed to more experienced scholars … the information supplied in the book more than withstands close scrutiny and I have no doubt that A Popular Dictionary of Paganism will live up to its title and prove to be just that.' - both by Journal for the Academic Study of Magic
