This special issue of Nova Religio aims to document and analyze how creativity, adaptation, and innovation occurred in contemporary Paganism and New Age during the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on long-term fieldworks mainly focused on ritual practices, the four articles gathered here provide original ethnographic case studies on the reception of the coronavirus crisis in five European locations: Portugal, Greece, Poland, the United Kingdom, and France. In addition to investigating ritual creativity, these articles offer innovative discussions on central concepts for the study of contemporary Paganism and New Age, as well as methodological and epistemological reflections on conducting ethnography, both offline and online, during challenging times.
