BOOK REVIEW - Classical Polytheism

Classical Polytheism by Jonathan Sousa © 2008 99pages Coil
Bound $11.00 (U.S.)

This is a workbook/guide for those individuals who wish to learn more
about the worship of the old Gods. It is one organization's
understanding of, and attempt to convey, this information to a wider
audience. It is intended to be used in conjunction with personal
instruction and thus assumes access to a facilitator (or as some may
style it, a teacher).

Many of the lessons include recommended books as resources. There are
some which are classics, literally, some that are quite useful, and a
few which I (personally) would not recommend. In any case, there are
diverse views represented and they provide food for thought, which is a
good thing.

The second half of the book is composed of rituals created by the Stars
of Elysium, all of which are fairly short. The only disadvantage with
these rituals is the frequent use of Greek words. If you are not
conversant in Greek (I'm not), you may want to consult a source to learn
their proper pronunciation.

If you find the Olympian deities calling to you; if you are actively
studying in a Greek-based Pagan tradition; or if you simply have a
desire to learn more about them, this book can be a good supplement to
whatever else you are reading. It won't serve you as a primary source,
since it is intended as a teaching aid, but it should provide some
guidance and inspiration.
