Pomegranate 9.2

I've been remiss in not noting the contents of the latest issue of The Pomegranate: The International Journal of Pagan Studies. Videlicet:

• "The Quandary of Contemporary Pagan Archives,"
Garth Reese,

• "The Status of Witchcraft in the Modern World," Ronald Hutton,

• "Kabbalah Recreata: Reception and Adaptation of Kabbalah in Modern Occultism," Egil Asprem

• "Putting the Blood Back into Blót: The Revival of Animal Sacrifice in Modern Nordic Paganism," Michael Strmiska.

And the book reviews.

Abstracts are online, and the book reviews may be downloaded in their entirety.

Sounds like a fascinating bunch of articles.

Has animal sacrifice been revived? Where? I hope that it is in the mode of having a shared meal with the gods, rather than total destruction of the animal. (I guess I'll just have to go and look in the library!)

The revival is in New England. There, as in most sacrificial traditions, the animal is consumed in a shared meal.

I'm curious about the sacrifice article. So I've just ordered a subscription -- I'm a first-time Pomegranate subscriber!
