About Patch and this Blog
-I'm known on the internet as Patch.
I have been a practising Hellenic polytheist for 4 years.
- After following a re-con methodology for a number of years, I became unable to ignore the call to witchcraft and so here I am today exploring how this fits into my practice.
This blog primarily deals with devotional worship, Hellenic polytheism, pagan living and a whole lot of navel gazing.

I just received a text from my boyfriend. He is your classic agnostic, nominally Christian British male, but his family are very devout Methodists. He is sitting in church as I type this (texting in a holy place during an Easter Sunday is not something I agree … Continue reading
Does anybody know of any good books that deal with things like the ancient greek views of the afterlife, treatment and worship of the dead and so forth? Academic texts if possible. It is becoming apparent that this is something … Continue reading
