Paganism: Very Short Introduction - Owen Davies


This short scholarly overview of the meaning of paganism from the ancient world through to the present day is recommended for scholars and university students. Owen Davies largely looks at paganism through the eyes of the Christian world, and how, over the centuries, notions and representations of its nature were shaped by religious conflict, power struggles, colonialism, and scholarship. This is an academic approach, not a a practitioner's, and is well done. Owen Davies is Professor of Social History at the University of Hertfordshire.
