I, for one, welcome Tony Mierzwicki's marvelous work, Hellenismos. In a single volume, it not only fills a vacuum in my education, it clearly and concisely provides fascinating insights into a world to which we are all indebted—a world of gods, and heroes, and spirits, and magick, and all that is great, judicious, and distinct in the western soul."—Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Homemade Magick and Low Magick "Communion with the gods is grounded in everyday practice. Hellenismos provides the reader with the necessary tools to quickly enter into Pagan Greek religion. The book combines an accurate historical understanding with practices updated for today's needs. Tony Mierzwicki is a knowledgeable and ethical guide in the tradition of the great Pagan teachers. For those of us called to the path of the ancient Greek gods this is the book we have needed."—Brandy Williams, author of For the Love of the Gods and The Woman Magician "Mierzwicki has succeeded in combining fine scholarship with deep vision to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of Grecian polytheistic theory and practice. His offering brings to life an ancient tradition made relevant for modern times. Whatever your interest in Greek polytheism, this tome will be a valuable asset to your collection. A classic in the making."—Kristoffer Hughes, author of The Book of Celtic Magic, From the Cauldron Born, and The Journey Into Spirit "Hellenismos is an excellent guide to practicing ancient Greek polytheism. Advancing from daily, personal practices, to the sacred lunar month, and finally to the annual festival cycle, Tony gently draws the reader deeper into Hellenic polytheism. More than a ritual handbook, this rich but readable book provides a wealth of information exploring the cultural context and mindset of the ancient religion, so modern Hellenic Pagans can make informed choices about their practice. A perfect introduction for those new to Hellenismos, but also a valuable resource for those who have worshipped the Greek gods for many years."—John Opsopaus, author of The Oracles of Apollo and The Pythagorean Tarot "Hellenismos makes an open and shut case for the need to modify the ancient Greek religion to suit the modern world, rather than recreating it faithfully. Ancient Greece was a product of its time, an authoritarian society where a small privileged male class enjoyed a life of leisure as menial tasks were performed by slaves. Most women were chattel. Foreigners had little hope of bettering their status. Animals were publicly slaughtered. Just as contemporary society has evolved towards egalitarianism, so too must the Greek religion. The author provides a wonderful guide to crafting your own personal path of venerating the ancient Greek gods and goddesses while remaining true to the spirit of the time."—Karen Tate, author of Walking An Ancient Path: Rebirthing Goddess on Planet Earth "In Hellenismos author Tony Mierzwicki provides an invaluable resource for both novice and experienced practitioners of ancient Greek religion. The book illustrates the differences between public and private worship in the Hellenic world and explains how to develop a connection with the gods and goddesses of Olympus. Tony briefly examines the history and development of Greek society and guides serious students to primary sources that will further their understanding of the Greek gods. With instructions for holding daily, monthly, and annual observances, this book is nothing less than a toolkit for building your personal Hellenic path."—Alaric Albertsson, author of A Handbook of Saxon Sorcery and Magic and To Walk a Pagan Path
