Horned God. Goat Foot God. God of Shepherds and Flocks. God of Song and Dance. God of Lust and Fear. God of Prophecy and Healing.

Reports of His death were greatly exaggerated. From his homeland of Arcadia, worship of the complex and dynamic Pan spread across the classical world. He continued to make appearances down through the ages in literature, artwork, sculpture and dreams. This devotional anthology — filled with scholarly essays, short fiction, and rich poetry — is a testament to Pan’s importance in the modern world and His place in the lives of His contemporary devotees.

Come, join us in the dance.

Io Pan!
