Greetings all!

I felt that this could not wait any longer and wanted to start collecting, obtaining and using information as soon as possible! I stand a chance at forming a group at my college (IUPUC!) to try and inform people as to what a pagan is and (Gods willing) to have other religions speak theirs as well. I am going to wait about a year until I do this; however, I'm looking to begin gathering more info on what a pagan is...

No. I'm not a nub Tongue I know many of you have seen me post a thousand times (ok not that much.) however, I'm looking to get more information in case the day comes I'm going to be "attacked" by religion vs. religion scenario!

What am I going to college for and why am I doing this?

To be a (male!) Nurse. I plan on getting my masters and later down the road, PhD in Nursing. On the same token, I find religion to be very important and have read countless things that involve what other families/cultures want done and I will be taking a few classes to "minor" in Religious Studies (although IUPUC or IUPUI does not have a minor for it Sad)  This is just another reason why I am seeking out suggestions, thoughts and book listings on "The history of..." so I can better understand too Cheesy

A good start would be to search out threads and articles on the topics you would like more information about. Also, there are tons of book suggestions in the books and other resources section. It seems like anything that would be suggested for a newbie here would be suited to your situation as reference. It might help if you specified what you're looking for  Smiley

A great, accurate overview of Hecate (since she seems to come up a fair bit in general) is Robert Von Rudloff's Hekate in Ancient Greek Religion. Not too long, and very readable. Miranda J. Green's Celtic Mythis (Legendary Past) is a good, basic intro to Celtic mythology and worldview. Very short. Hope that helps  Cheesy

How ambitious, and what a cool idea! I was part of an Interfaith group at my first college. My primary major was actually Religious Studies (emphasis on comparative), and I maxed out my credit hours on the subject, I love it so much! But I'm not too sure what you're wanting here. Books on the history of...paganism? Of all religions? Are you wanting in-depth, or a good overview? Are you wanting to approach it from the academic/scholarly perspective, or the everyday applications and how it's actually practiced? What about books on comparative religions?

Sorry for all the questions! It's just that if I can get a better feel for the angle you're wanting, I can tackle the shelves of my books we used in my religious studies classes.

Oh, no worries! I know how that goes, plans can change so quickly when in school. If you ever go back to that point where you're needing the sources, just let me know and I can dig out my old book lists or contact some of my old professors for you.
