Pan is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, nature of mountain wilds, hunting and rustic music and companion of the nymph.His name originates within the Ancient Greek language, from the word paein (πάειν), meaning “to pasture.”He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr. He is the god of the wild and animals. With his homeland in rustic Arcadia, he is recognized as the god of fields, groves, and wooded glens; because of this, Pan is connected to fertility and the season of spring. The ancient Greeks also considered Pan to be the god of theatrical criticism.
In Roman Religion and Myth Pan's counterpart was Faunus, a nature god who was the father of Bona Dea sometimes identified as Fauna. In the 18th and 19th centuries, Pan became a significant figure in the Romantic Movement of western Europe and also in the 20th-century Neopagan Movement.
In 1933, the Egyptologist Margaret Murray published the book, The God of the Witches, in which she theorised that Pan was merely one form of a horned god who was worshipped across Europe by a witch cult. This theory influenced the Neopagan notion of the Horned God, as an archetype of male virility and sexuality. In Wicca, the archetype of the Horned God is highly important, as represented by such deities as the Celtic Cernunnos, Indian Pasgupati and Greek Pan.
A modern account of several purported meetings with Pan is given by Robert Ogilvie Crombie in The Findhorn Garden (Harper & Row, 1975) and The Magic of Findhorn (Harper & Row, 1975). Crombie claimed to have met Pan many times at various locations in Scotland, including Edinburgh, on the island of Iona and at the Findhorn Foundation.
