Christian ideas of time underpin Western U.S. culture: time is linear with a definitive beginning and (apocalyptic) end. The lack of awareness of indigenous, historical and cultural modes of time, severely limits the understanding of contemporary polytheists working to make sense of and work with historical materials. This lecture aims to provide basic frameworks for dismantling present-day Western ideas of time, place, modernity, human progress, history and more by illuminating how some ancient polytheist religions and indigenous traditions understand time.
