Polytheism is belief in, or worship of, multiple gods or divinities. The word comes from the Greek words poly+theoi, literally "many gods." Most ancient religions were polytheistic, holding to pantheons of traditional deities, often accumulated over centuries of cultural interchange and experience.

Present-day polytheistic religions include Hellenismos, Shinto, Hinduism, some forms of Wicca, and Asatru/Odinism.
