Greek court rules worship of ancient Greek deities is legal
Monday, March 27, 2006
Greek court has ruled that worshippers of the ancient Greek religion may now formally associate and worship at archeological sites.
Prior to the ruling, the religion was banned from conducting public worship at archeological sites by the Greek Ministry of Culture. Due to that, the religion was relatively secretive.
Many neo-pagan religions, such as Wicca, use aspects of ancient Greek religions in their practice; Hellenic polytheism instead focuses exclusively on the ancient religions, as far as the fragmentary nature of the surviving source material allows.
