of the pagan belief systems that is not Wiccan. To learn more about this...these two articles are excellent sources

Similarities and Differences Between Heathenry and Wicca by Arlie Stephens. This 4-page article is written specifically for the Wiccan reader or the Wiccan reader interested in Heathenry. It attempts to use terminology and a tone more familiar to those that are Wiccan.
The Pentagram and the Hammer by Devyn Gillette and Lewis Stead. This18-page article is based on the workshop "Wicca and Ásatrú", which was presented by the writers during the 1994 FreeSpirit Festival. Devyn Gillette is a English Traditional Wiccan, and former host of the Pagan radio show "Between the Worlds." Lewis Stead is an Asatruar who edits Asatru Today. I believe this article attempts to approach this topic without leaning towards the Wiccan reader or the Heathen reader, but to strike more of a balance.
