While the idea that there is a connection between paganism, witchcraft is controversial, some scholars substantiate the connection by discussing the overlap of such things as Indian pagan ritual dedicated to the god Shiva and the presence of wisdom literature associated with Alchemy with witchcraft folklore. Pagan and witchcraft overlaps are said by these to come from the two sources of Celtic and Classical Indian roots.
