Journal Article Published

I recently got an article published in Walking the Worlds, an academic journal of polytheism and related issues. This issue was about building regional cultus in a modern context. That is to say, about how polytheistic religions change from place to place to incorporate local religious foci. Ancient polytheistic religions such as heathenry often had different local deities for different lands and even for different towns. Every article in this issue discusses how such practices fit into modern polytheistic religions.

My article discusses how the ancient heathens incorporated local sacred rocks, trees, and spirits into their religious practices. It describes the modern local cult that has grown up around the Lobsterman statue in Portland Maine, and how it has been incorporated into local polytheistic worship.

The issue is also filled with a lot of other great articles by renowned pagan authors. To order individual issues or subscribe to the journal, go to their website.
