But there is, of course, a difference. There are some neo-pagans, who try to revive the old Greek and Norse religions. And I suppose the Aborigins do what they can to keep their old religion alive....

No, but I understand what you mean, as Helvetia is the old name for Switzerland. But the words aren't connected to each other, as the name for Switzerland goes back to a Celtic tribe and has a...
