Cult

Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years, 10 months ago

 

In religion and sociology, a cult is a cohesive group of people (often a relatively small and recently founded religious movement) devoted to beliefs or practices that the surrounding culture or society considers to be far outside the mainstream. Its separate status may come about either due to its novel belief system, because of its idiosyncratic practices or because it opposes the interests of the mainstream culture. Other non-religious groups may also display cult-like characteristics. -- Wikipedia

 

In the sociological sense, contemporary Pagan traditions are cults; but in the popular usage of the word, they most certainly are not.
