Pagan Ritual

“The antique religions,” to quote the words of Robertson Smith, “had for the most part no creed; they consisted entirely of institutions and practices … as a rule we find that while the practice was rigorously fixed, the meaning attached to it was extremely vague, and the same rite was explained by different people in different ways.” –Christmas in Ritual and Tradition, Christian and Pagan by Clement A. Miles
