Dancing Under an African Moon Paganism and Wicca in South

Dancing Under an African Moon Paganism and Wicca in South Africa Paganism is one of the fastest growing belief systems in the world and books on the topic are literally flying off the shelves But these books written by European and North American authors are for northern hemisphere readers; in the southern hemisphere the seasons which form the basis of Pagan practice are the other way around In this book Donna Vos explains Pagan practice in the context of Southern Africa and the southern hemisphere She addresses issues that are of interest to Pagans and non Pagans alike definitions of Paganism and Wicca; the historical origins of Paganism; the link between Paganism and traditional African beliefs; and the opposition between Paganism and Satanism There are also interviews with practicing Pagans who outline their beliefs and practices and respond to the myths that have led to discrimination against them This is an insightful book about a largely misunderstood religion

    There are very few books available about Wicca and Paganism in South Africa This is one is extremely informative Although some aspects of it are slightly dated now as the book was written in 2002 and the socio political situation has changed somewhat added to the fact that the author has since passed away However the basic tenets of paganism remain
