This is a large (+9Mb) collection of articles related to Neo-Paganism which can be found archived at a number of FTP sites (for instance, here). This is a collection of posts to bulletin boards from the late eighties to the mid nineties, essentially predating the modern Internet. According to a recent communication, the original editor of this archive was Durwydd mac Tara at PODS net. We acknowledge Durwydd's hard work to preserve this archive. For ease of access, we have converted this archive to HTML using a C program. There are a number of technical difficulties with this collection including runtogetherwords in many places, problems with the table of contents and huge inconsistencies in pagination; due to the volume of this material we have left these intact for now.

We have taken the liberty of removing about twenty-five articles which were too far 'off topic', posted elsewhere at this site, or had serious copyright issues. Three articles have been removed at the request of the authors. Other than the omitted articles we have made no attempt to alter any of the content.


Practically all of the files below are copyrighted but redistributable for non-commercial purposes. Consult each file for particulars.

NOTE: As most of these postings were archived many years ago, we have no way to contact the authors of any of these documents. Therefore we can't arrange copyright clearances for any of these pieces or give you the email addresses of the authors. Some of the may have a web presence and you may be able to find them by searching for them through search engines, but because of time limitations we can't directly assist you in this process.

CD-ROM note: For copyright reasons, none of the files on this page are included on the sacred-texts CD-ROM, although it does have most of the public domain files from the neopagan section.
