  • Is there a Pagan Bible?

    Hi all,

    I am new to this... and with out sounding totally naive is there such a thing as a Pagan Bible?

    if not would you recommend some good reading to a person who wants to learn all she can?

    Thanks for your help!!

    No, there is no such thing as a Pagan Bible. There is no central Pagan religion. I recommend that you visit the New Pagans section of the site to begin your search. There is a HUGE amount of information there, including many book recommendations.

    Good luck!

    It may be that the gulfs will wash us down;
    It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
    And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
    Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,--
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    ~From Ulysses, by Alfred Lord Tennyson

        The Necromonicon.







        Because I feel bad for popping in without a serious answer (guilty conscience just this once type thing) I agree with Athena-Nadine's advice.

          There is a Witches' Bible, by Janet and Stewart Farrar.

            There arent "bibles" per-se

            Lots of books, and lots of things to sort out for yourself. Everything from books on druidism, to Solitary Wicca, to shamanism... thre is a LOT to process when you are first beginning, and I would suggest personally, that you read up on as much as you can in all sources, and strat following the things that suit YOUR spiritual needs best.

            Most find that the more they research into it, the more they begin to feel "Wow, this is what I have been doing all along anyways!" and it just starts to grow naturally from there.

            So dont look for just *one* particular book, look for ALL of them and dig in to see if you find the ones that really speak to your own spiritual needs.

            "There is a sort of jealousy which needs very little fire; it is hardly a passion, but a blight bred in the cloudy, damp despondency of uneasy egoism. "
            George Eliot (1819-1880)

              And to save monies, go to the library or do A LOT of online research. The economy is going south and books are expensive.

                We don't need one. Our beliefs are our own individually so what someone might write down may not apply to your beliefs.

                  OOOOOO, thats meannnn *points*

                  I agree though, that particular book is similar to a Bible for sure

                  I always thought Cthulhu had a halo around his head

                          no, every Magician has read that book. There's even a whole strain of thought around the Necronomicon... but not everyone has. I have a few editions on my computer though

                          But alas, back to the question at hand. I suppose in some ways one could see the Gardnerian Book of Shadows as being a Wiccan Bible... but not all Wiccans are Gardnerian.

                            Umm..my biography? Soon to be published.

                            Every person has a book thats special to them so the books would depend on the practitioner.

                              I second this, there is a great resource call "Sacred Texts" that has a lot of great material on it.
