* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Paganism Documentaries
« on: December 05, 2018, 12:10:13 am »
I was just wondering if anyone has seen any good documentaries on Paganism in general, or related stuff that is worth watching. I can just look up stuff on YouTube, but I would like to not waste time watching films that are not up to snuff. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

Ronald Hutton's bit on the history of Wicca is interesting though a bit low budget and has some pretty cheesy narration in parts.

I watched it, thanks. It was alright. I was wondering if anyone knew about documentaries on paganism that are more general and about contemporary stuff, not just the history of Gardnerian Wicca? It seems to me to be a pretty good topic for a documentary. Maybe someone has done one, or should.

I remember seeing brief snippets of documentaries with Emma Restall Orr and found this on YouTube. It sounds like it was a radio interview and there is a link to the full interview in the description box on YT.

Thanks, Starlight. I will watch that later tonight when I have enough Internet time.

I can just look up stuff on YouTube, but I would like to not waste time watching films that are not up to snuff.

Can I ask you to define "up to snuff"? Are you look for production value, accuracy of content or entertainment value? Do you prefer current event documentaries vs historical? I ask so I know what to suggest in the future :)

I was just wondering if anyone has seen any good documentaries on Paganism in general, or related stuff that is worth watching.

Witches: A Century of Murder (on Netflix) was really interesting. Very historical but it brought out a lot of interesting info. I am due to re-watch it apparently as I can't bring to mind a specific example.

I honestly haven't watched many myself, but your topic has me inspired and I am sure this is going to be the theme of what I play in the background when at for the next little while. Thank you Donal2018, I'll pass on the good ones I find :)

I am really just looking for stuff that is not cheesy or exploitative, mainly. I think that I would prefer to see something that was current and more sociological. More about paganism as a living community or sub-culture. The history stuff is alright, but I would like to see what is going on now more than anything.

Maybe there are documentaries that go to pagan festivals or such? I don't know as I am solitary and not really connected to any pagan groups, just some occasional contact with a local coven a number of years ago. Anyway, thanks for the post and let me know if you see anything interesting.
