Resources

NOTE: THE DOCUMENTATION OF ALL RESOURCES ON THIS PAGE IS CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS 🙂

The following resources have been recommended to me over the years by trusted sources within these various disciplines; I will continue to update these lists as I finish reading books, articles, and documents during my religious research, in hopes that they might be able to help future polytheists interested in these areas of study.
