Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the early history of Paganism in Australia, including the importation and development of initiate Wicca up until the late 1980s. It then reviews the growth and dispersion of Witchcraft and other forms of Paganism through the 1990s, including a discussion of books, music and festivals. The chapter also reviews the consolidation of the Australian Pagan community in the late 1990s and 2000s through the formation of Pagan networking associations and egroups. These three phases of development, growth and consolidation correspond roughly to the three decades of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, respectively.
