  • It is Latin, and yes, it's the Latin word for Christ. At least, it's one of the derivatives of the word. Christi, Christus, and Christos are also Latin for Christ. It just depends on the context.

    I haven't studied Latin in about 15 years, so I don't remember everything.

  • Here is a link for you to look into. It is fairly easy to be a Chrsito-pagan.

    They just believe in multiple dietes and still believe in Christ.

    Here are a few the link will give you a more exact list.

    * Sophia, Goddess of Wisdom
    * El
    * Yah
    * Yahweh
    * Elohim
    * Shekinah
    * Asherah

    New Testament Deities:

    * Mary Magdalene
    * Mary Theotokos
    (Mother Mary, AKA Virgin Mary)
    * Yeshua the Anointed
    * Abba (God the Father)
    * Eema (God the Mother)
    * Paraclete
    (Male Holy Spirit, "Comforter")
    *

    Pneuma (Female Holy Spirit)

  • There is also Christo-wicca.

    Here is a site for that

    http://dagwench.tripod.com/christianwitch/Wicca/what_is_a_christo_wiccan.htm

    What is a Christo Wiccan?

    Please note this article is about Christo Wicca and does not necessarily reflect my personal beliefs.

    A Christo Wiccan is someone who combines aspects of Christianity with aspects of Wicca.

  • Anon - Christo Pagans have mixed belief systems. They believe in Jesus and YHWH, but also believe in a more Pagan way of life and practice. They are actually much closer to the beliefs and customs of the original Christian Mystics than to anything else...

  • There isn't a leader in Christo Wicca. There are no founders. There are no books that have recorded the history of Christo Wicca or its beginnings. This is because Christo Wicca simply emerged instead of being created. Most Christo Wiccans began practicing the religion on their own, completely unaware that what they were doing, combining Christianity with Wicca, even had a name. It was only when they discovered other people similar beliefs that they began to realize they were a part of a growing community. With the help of very secretive groups and the Internet, individuals who have been combining Christianity with Wicca for decades suddenly learned that there were individuals who labeled themselves as "Christian Wiccans," "Wiccan Christians," "Christi-Wiccans," etc. One label that gained popularity was "Christo Wiccan," and it seems to be the label that will survive.

  • In my research there is a whole lot of different Christo- Some thing or another. Sabrina is very knowledgeable when it comes to these things so she would be a great one to ask and listen to. She helped me greatly with this one.
