Clergy Profile: Chris Aldridge is an American Hellenic Polytheist, published writer, public speaker, Priest, hymn, prayer and ritual composer, historian, Mythologist, Theologian, philosopher, civil rights activist, and an environmentalist. His specific religious denomination is Pan-Hellenic (All-Hellenic) . While many modern Hellenic Polytheists draw only from ancient Athens, Chris incorporates a wide variety of ancient Hellenic worship from many different localities and city-states of the ancient Grecian world; he is also considered a Reconstructionist. Chris was born in 1984 in Asheboro, North Carolina, and grew up in the nearby city of Thomasville, living there for 25 years before moving to northern Illinois in late 2012.
After meeting his wife online in 2009, they started a life together, which resulted in the founding of their own Hellenic religious organization in 2010 called Temple Of The Greek Gods. The organization is still operated successfully today by Chris and his wife, Anastasia, as the Head Priest and Head Priestess. They are presently the only clergy of the Temple, where they lead and support their members, called Initiates, hold physical public events in the local communities each year, and teach Hellenic education classes. They have one son together. Chris attended Davidson County Community College in Lexington, North Carolina from 2007 to 2009, before transferring to Columbia College of Missouri online for a General Studies degree with a minor in history.
Chris is the author of several books, articles and blog posts on Hellenic Polytheism and his personal experiences in his religious and spiritual life. He has also published fictional works in the past, and enjoys writing a wide range of genres such as general fiction, flash fiction, horror, drama, romance, history and general non-fiction.
Aside from writing and religion, Chris is a history lover and a military strategist, and enjoys playing online war games and studying war and ancient history. Also a lover of the mysterious, Chris is very interested in anything supernatural and paranormal.
