Modern Hellenic (Greek) & Roman Religions

Today’s Pagans worship different pantheons and cultures. The Gods of the Greek and Romans, so engaging for many of us in school, are now being worshiped again.

Information on modern Hellenic and Roman religious organizations is provided here. As one might expect, many of these groups are based in Greece or Rome, but I will post North American groups as I find them.

I also hope to expand the page in future. Enjoy, and let me know if there are other resources that relate to today’s worship of these gods and goddesses.

Ellinais in Greece

A post on the Hellenic Pagan organization Ellinais in Greece had a lot of interest, and led to the creation of this page.
