Christian Goddesses? The Question of 'Pagan Survivals' Reconsidered

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book

Abstract

This essay represents a contribution to an ongoing international debate about whether or not it is permissible to speak of 'pagan survivals' in medieval and early modern cultures. It suggests that there are important phenomena in those cultures which are not survivals from the pagan ancient world, nor in the least Christian, and so that the whole traditional polarized terminology of the debate needs to be abandoned.
