  • I've read the Catholic Catechism several times. I've also read the Lutheran small Catechism and the Methodist Catechism.

    A Catechism is just a summary of the doctrine, practices and/or beliefs of a religion.  Often it is in question/answer form, but not always.  (The Catholic Baltimore Catechism was in Q&A form, the current Catholic Catechism is not.)  Since pagans have incredibly varied beliefs I doubt there is a catechism for pagans.  But Catholics, Lutherans, Methodists have them - and probably some other faiths as well.   Many scholars view the Didache as the first Christian Catechism (it was written as early at 50-70 CE).
