Resources – Modern Western Polytheism & Occultism

The following resources pertain to the subjects of modern Western polytheism (a.k.a. “Paganism” or “Neopaganism”) and/or occultism. These are just some of the sources I’ve used to study these subjects. This list is in no way exhaustive and I will continue to update it as necessary. At the same time, the opinions expressed in these sources do not necessarily represent my own.
