Kerr Cuhulain Dispels Myths about Wiccans and Pagans

Pagan Religions: A Handbook for Diversity Training (4th ed.)

Author: Kerr Cuhulain

Publisher: Acorn Guild Press

Category: Religion/Neo-Paganism   Level: Beginner

In 1989, police detective Kerr Cuhulain published a groundbreaking book titled "The Law Enforcement Guide to Wicca, " which was hailed by law enforcement personnel and interfaith organizations. Cuhulain has written a long-awaited update to this classic reference, now in its fourth edition: PAGAN RELIGIONS: A HANDBOOK FOR DIVERSITY TRAINING.

Revised and expanded, this comprehensive handbook clearly interprets neo-Pagan religious beliefs and practices for non-Pagans, such as professionals in law enforcement, education, social services, and the media. Educating the general public by providing a strong introduction to these alternative spiritual traditions, this updated reference explains the festivals, symbols, tools, and history of Wicca.

PAGAN RELIGIONS also presents new chapters on the practices of Druidism and Ásatrú and demonstrates how oppressive religious doctrine has maligned modern Pagans. Written in an accessible style, this overview is tailored for believers as well as skeptics, scholars, and the idly curious. A glossary of neo-Pagan terms and an extensive bibliography are also included.

Larry Cornett, Moderator for Earth Religions Legal Assistance Network says, " 'The Law enforcement Guide to Wicca' has been very helpful educating police and others as to the true nature of Wicca and ending harassment and discrimination. I am confident that the latest Edition ('Pagan religions: a Handbook for Diversity Training') will be of even greater value."

180 pages, Trade paper, 6.25 x 9.25, $18.95 (CAN $18.77)
Pub date: August 2011


"It would be nice if every police department in the country owned a copy."
—Patti Wigington, Guide to Paganism/Wicca

"It is recommended not only for law enforcement, but also for judges, school administrators, and all other government offices which deal regularly with the public. It clearly and distinctly dispels many of the perceptions regarding the nonmainstream religious beliefs, which it addresses."
—Dana D. Eilers, author of "Pagans and the Law: Understand Your Rights"

"This book is a good resource to give to local police or social service agencies."
—"Circle Magazine"

"The single best book for non-practitioners seeking an understanding of our path … And it’s an excellent refresher …"
—Christopher Penczak, author of "The Inner Temple of Witchcraft"

"An excellent resource …"—Amber K, "Covencraft, " 336

"How could someone write a ‘law enforcement guide’ to anything, even Wicca, and manage to make it interesting—even fascinating—to someone not in law enforcement? … The next time I see Kerr Cuhulain, I must ask him, because that’s exactly what he’s done!"
—Mike Nichols, author of "The Witches’ Sabbats"

"An invaluable resource to help identify and differentiate between vandalism, gang activity and ritualistic crime. A handbook that explains the tenets of some of the most misunderstood religious practices, and provides clarity for those unfamiliar with its associated history, symbology, and iconage. This book should be mandatory reading for all law enforcement personnel. It is a ‘must have’ for crime scene investigation. Every Chief of Police should have this book on their office shelf!"
—Rev. Angie Buchanan, Gaia’s Womb – Earth Traditions

"An outstanding resource, and one I am glad to be able to recommend whenever I do training with law enforcement training classes, criminal justice college classes, victim advocates and others."
—Holli S. Emore, CFRE, Executive Director, Cherry Hill Seminary

"It is an excellent guide for those within the law enforcement field to better assist them in understanding alternative religions within all aspects of their jobs; whether it be crime scenes or the prison departments."
—Darla Kaye Wynne, Wiccan Expert Advisor to North Carolina Department of Corrections (NCDOC)

"I find the simplicity of the explanations makes this book a great teaching manual. I have it permanently placed on my workplace bookshelf and use it help colleagues understand what a client may be talking about in terms of their pagan beliefs and practices."
—Giovanna Zammit, Seasuns Counseling (

"When we are contacted by counselors, parents’ organizations, law enforcement or schools wanting information on pagan religions and their practices, we are confident that The Law Enforcement Guide to Wicca (LEGW) will provide the practical overview they need."
—Warren Stott, Boulder Pagan Alliance, Boulder, CO

"Precise, clear information on Wicca and Neo-Paganism. One of the best overviews around."—M. Woodling, Chesapeake Pagan Community, Maryland

"It offers a clear definitive and concise definition of what witchcraft is and is not."
—Covenant of Unitarian Universalists Pagans (CUUPS) Recommended Reading,

"Cuhulain’s original work was created for the world of law enforcement. Because of that, the information it contains is very tight, concise and sharply focused. This powerhouse of information is a standard text I use to educate average people and seekers alike about the Pagan world. I always keep an extra copy on hand to give away!"
—Prometheus P.O., Minos,
