A modern non-Judeo-Christian faith which deliberately draws upon or imitates older pagan practices. Such faiths may strive for an accurate recreation of a single older faith, or they may be highly syncretic, borrowing from a variety of ancient traditions and fashioning them into a modern context. Neo-pagan religions include Wicca, Druidry, Asatru, goddess worship, Religio Romana and Hellenismos.
The term neo-paganism was coined by Isaac Bonewits, himself a neo-pagan. The term distinguishes this modern branch of pagan religions from older and often indigenous forms of paganism that he refers to as paleo-paganism and meso-paganism.
