  • Why Syncretism Makes Sense Within Paganism - B. T. Newberg

    Paganism and syncretism are complementary, not contradictory, paths.

  • Syncretism: Right or Wrong? - Kim

    Richwood, WV, August 16, 2003. My friend Lillith and I arrive in Richwood, WV with lots of hope. I am here to look for a building and a home. The land is cheap and the possibilities to me seem endless. I want a Pagan-based ... Posted: December 28th. 2003   Views: 3,673   - [ Full Article ]

  • Rights and Perceptions - Kim
