  • Pagan is older, and has God's while Wiccan is worshipping nature, and celebrating the power within. At least, that's my understanding of it...

  • Pagan is to Wiccan what Christian is to Catholic... All Wiccan's are Pagan, Not all Pagans are Wiccan.

    Wicca is one religious path included in the Pagan Umbrella. Wicca has specific beliefs and tenants, while Paganism is all inclusive to any number of religious paths.

  • All the above answers are true. Pagan usually meant all the religion that was not Christian. Especially all of those before Christ.
