How far should the term "pagan" stretch? Does it even apply to traditions which pre-date the term itself? Interesting stuff
Listen and in thine heart engrave my words; Keep closed thine eye and ear 'gainst prejudice;
Of others the example fear; think always for thyself: Consult, deliberate, and freely choose.
Let fools act aimlessly and without cause. Thou shouldst, in the present, contemplate the future.
(The Golden Verses of Pythagoras - D'Olivet)
