Taking the Mediterranean society of Malta as a case research, this e-book invitations readers contained in the international of a small, hidden sub-culture. exhibiting what it's like being Pagan in a society the place nearly all of the inhabitants is Roman Catholic, and Catholicism permeates each sphere of public and household, social and political existence, Rountree finds that Paganism here's a precise brew of indigenous and worldwide affects. Pagans hire either creativity and borrowing in developing identities inside a cultural context characterised by way of antagonism in addition to continuity. This ebook explores the intersections of non secular and cultural identification, the worldwide and native, Paganism and Christianity, with insights grounded in wealthy ethnographic aspect in keeping with long term fieldwork. Rountree makes helpful comparisons with different reviews of recent Pagans and their a variety of worlds.
