A Call to Pagan Artists
If you build the candy cottage, the children will come.
So: the well-heeled patron (or matron) of the pagan arts comes to you and says: “I want a temple, expense no object.”
What would you design?
What will the pagan temples of the future look like?
The New Paganisms are, for the most part, young religions, virtually all under 100 years old. For various reasons that I won't go into here, temple-building hasn't so far been a priority for us.
But that won't always be the case.
At this point, we've got house-temples all over the world (probably tens of thousands of them), but very few actual—and virtually no monumental—temples.
So again I ask: What will our future temples look like?
You know how these things work.
To get there, we have to imagine it first.
So you there, artist.
Dream us up a temple, would you?
