Famous Modern Pagans

The following is a list of famous people from the past... 100 years give or take, who are Pagan. I have confirmed most of them from reliable sources. There may be many more out there who have not publically stated their beliefs, but I require more than just rumours.

Many of these people are not Wiccan, so please do not claim that they are if you link to this page or such. It just gets too confusing to have even more rumours flying about. They all fit into the umbrella category of "Pagan" which includes Asatru, Celtic traditions, African traditions, etc. Please use this term as such.
