Neo-Pagan beliefs about divinity vary widely. In general, Neo-Pagan beliefs about divinity differ from those of monotheists, like Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Most Neo-Pagans are not monotheists. They are polytheists, henotheists, pantheists, panentheists, duotheists, animists, and monists.
Neo-Pagan theology has four principal characteristics:
- Neo-Paganism is pantheistic in that it views divinity as immanent and the material world as a theophany, a manifestation of divinity. Neo-Pagans see the earth, the body, and sexuality as sacred.
- Neo-Paganism is polytheistic in that it recognizes a plurality of deities or aspects of Deity.
- Neo-Paganism honors the divine feminine; it recognizes that divinity manifests itself as masculine and feminine, while also transcending gender.
- Neo-Paganism sees divinity as changing or evolving, as part of a process that is itself divine, sometimes symbolized by a spiral dance.
