Term “Hellenic”: The Meaning Explained


By Morningbird

The term Hellenic refers to all things Greek, usually referring to ancient Greek deities, religion, culture, cosmology, tradition, etc. when used within the Pagan community.

The term derives from the Hellenic language family which includes only Greek, ancient and modern. In common usage, it refers as much to modern Greek people, religion, culture, tradition, and language as ancient.
