Wicca is a collective term for a number of different Neopagan traditions which are found in many different countries, although making up a relatively tiny percentage of the population in most. Wicca often claims continuity with the pre-Christian religions of Europe, through an underground centuries old tradition. Critics deny this claim, stating that Wicca as it exists today is a purely modern religion which uses certain occult and pre-Christian symbols to express modern, if far from mainstream, ideas.
