In today's episode, we discuss scholarly education in the Pagan community. Victoria discusses her experiences with the first circle of the ADF Clergy Training Program. Drum discusses scholarship as a way to explore how different paths work and broadening his practice. Amber discusses her passion as a scholar, completing ADF study programs as a way to build her toolkit. We explore mythological comparisons, biases found in ancient texts, the bounty of the internet and modern scholars like Kristoffer Hughes. We also discuss study programs outside of ADF, practical coursework as clergy, and whether we think advanced study is an important part of someone’s practice. We discuss the availability of online courses and discernment when selecting teachers, courses, and resources, as well as how we utilize Wikipedia.
