You should cross Neopaganism and Witchcraft off your list. Neopaganism isn’t a religion per say; it’s the renewing and updating of old Pagan practices and adapting them to the modern world, in comparison to reconstructionism, that adapts the modern life of people around the old Paganism. Say one man is a reconstructionist-Heathen and one woman is a Neopagan-Heathen: they both believe in the same Gods and practices, but they just perform them in a different way. As for Witchcraft, it’s not a religion either. Witchcraft is a method of communing with spirits, nature, the Gods, the self and the list… Read more »

Paganism is any non-judeo-christian religion. Polytheism is one type of paganism. neopaganism is a branch of paganism. Your list includes various subgroups. A straight list ends up confusing the issue more than clarifying. For example, Wicca is pagan, neopagan, and polytheistic.

Seriously, if you want to list pagan religions, your list would include every religion not related to Judaism, Christianity or Islam. that list will include thousands of religions.

thelema, hoodoo, eclecticism, mysticism, hellenismo, monotheism, pantheism…

Wait, this isn’t a list of types of pagan religions and witchcrafts, it’s just a random list of religious ideas and practices that pagans might have.

Type of witchcraft and pagan religions are nearly infinite. You’ll be building that list forever.

voodou, astrau, druid, wiccan, shaman, kemet, Norse, Egyptian, Greek, A mixture of Norse, Egypt and Greek, Pantheistic, polytheistic, neopagan, taoist, candomble, Celtic, Satanist, Set worship, Reiki, roma…… The Traditions of Witchcraft All traditions of Witchcraft are based on the ancient craft traditions in one form or another. Often they have been influenced by regional customs and existing spiritual beliefs. As the human existence evolves, so does the human belief and understanding of their place in the Universe. Remaining the same with the exact same beliefs and practices will do a disservice over time. This is one of the greatest characteristics… Read more »

I know Pagans go down certain paths. There is a Celtic Path in which they worship the Celtic Dietes, there’s a Greek Path, Native American Path, and the list goes on.
