Abstract and Keywords

The study of the Neo-Pagan movement has also begun to emerge as a distinctive subfield within new religious movement (NRM) studies. This article surveys this area of study via a literature review of the primary books in the field. The survey leads into an analysis of the movement in terms of the ideas of three theorists of late modernity—Anthony Giddens, Michel Maffesoli, and Jürgen Habermas. These theorists are then brought to bear on a discussion of the issue of Neo-Pagan institutionalization, which is a hotly debated topic among movement participants.

Keywords: late modernity, Neo-Pagan movement, Anthony Giddens, Michel Maffesoli, Habermas, institutionalization
