The WWW home page of the Covenant of the Goddess, an international organization of cooperating, autonomous Wiccan congregations and solo practitioners. Here, you'll find information about the COG organization and activities, as well as the religious beliefs and practices which comprise Wicca.

The Covenant of the Goddess is one of the largest and oldest Wiccan religious organizations, with members in North America, Europe and Australia. Wicca, or Witchcraft is the most popular expression of the religious movement known as Neo-Paganism, which, according to the Institute for the Study of American Religion, is the fastest growing religion in the United States. It practitioners are reviving ancient Pagan practices and beliefs of pre-Christian Europe and adapting them to contemporary life. The result is a religion that is both old and new, both 'traditional' and creative

The Pagan Federation was founded in 1971 by members of four branches of Witchcraft to provide information to counter misconceptions about Paganism. About 50 per cent of Pagan Federation members are Witches. The rest follow other Pagan paths. The Pagan Federation has members all over the UK and in other parts of the world. The aims of the Pagan Federation are: to provide contact between groups and genuine seekers of the Old Ways; to promote contact and dialogue between the various branches of European Paganism and other Pagan organizations world-wide; and to provide practical and effective information on Paganism to members of the public, the media, public bodies and the Administration. The Pagan Federation works for the rights of Pagans to worship freely and without censure.

The 3rd Road is: a living branch of Celtic shamanism; a school for pagan religion; and a community. This site is also a link to "Wiccan Miscellany", a potpourri of pagan links, spells, articles, and other magical sundries.

The Association of Cymry Wiccae is an auxillery of The Coven and Church of Y Tylwyth Teg, a non-profit religious organization incorporated by the State of Georgia, USA and given a tax exempt status by the US Government. For too long the Religious Right, News Media and Entertainment Industry have held our religion up to ridecule and used scare tactics to discourage anyone from looking at Witchcraft and Paganism as valid religious paths. Our page hopes to change that.

Santería or La Regla Lucumí originates in West Africa in what is now Nigeria and Benin. It is the traditional religion of the Yoruba peoples there. The slave trade brought many of these people to the shores of Cuba, Brazil, Haiti, Trinidad and Puerto Rico among others. But along with the bodies being brought over for sale into a life of misery, something else was being brought along. Their souls. And their religion.

Since the late 18th century the curious megalithic stone circle and the Ggantija temple on the Xaghra plateau of Gozo have been recorded by European travellers.

Olympus

by Thomas Bulfinch. THE religions of ancient Greece and Rome are extinct. The so-called divinities of Olympus have not a single worshipper among living men.

Diana, alias Diana the Huntress, was a goddess in Greek and Roman mythology. Theoretically, she was the daughter of Zeus, and the sister of Apollo. This was the cult of Diana-Artemis of Anatolian fertility cult fame.

Greek

This is an ancient Greek handbook of mythology

Mithraic

Owing to the cult's secrecy, we possess almost no literary evidence about the beliefs of Mithraism. The few texts that do refer to the cult come not from Mithraic devotees themselves, but rather from outsiders such as early Church fathers, who mentioned Mithraism in order to attack it, and Platonic philosophers, who attempted to find support in Mithraic symbolism for their own philosphical ideas.

Known throughout Europe and Asia by the names Mithra, Mitra, Meitros, Mihr, Mehr, and Meher, the veneration of this god began some 4000 years ago in Persia, where it was soon imbedded with Babylonian doctrines. The faith spread east through India to China, and reached west throughout the entire length of the Roman frontier; from Scotland to the Sahara Desert, and from Spain to the Black Sea. Sites of Mithraic worship have been found in Britain, Italy, Romania, Germany, Hungary, Bulgaria, Turkey, Persia, Armenia, Syria, Israel, and North Africa.
