About the Author

Kathryn Rountree is Professor of Anthropology at Massey University. She has published on contemporary Paganism in Malta and New Zealand, feminist spirituality, animism, pilgrimage, and embodiment, and the contestation of sacred sites. Her books include Embracing the Witch and the Goddess: Feminist Ritual-makers in New Zealand (Routledge, 2004), Crafting Contemporary Pagan Identities in a Catholic Society (Ashgate, 2010), and the co-edited Archaeology of Spiritualities (Springer, 2012).


"Most importantly, perhaps, this volume contributes to the critical effort of sociologically contextualizing Western paganisms as products of glocalization- an interplay between the effects of globalization and local concerns...Students and scholars of the sociology or anthropology of religion and pagan studies will no doubt find this book a useful tool, as it is one of the first complete volumes to explore paganisms in Europe and the complexities and influences of global and local politics, culture, and social change on these emerging movements." * Anthropos
