polydeism (plural polydeisms)

  1. Belief in the existence of many gods who collectively set the universe in motion, then ceased to interact with it.
  2. (rare): polytheism
    Almost all women-led religions relate to many spirits, gods, or ancestors—even in cultural contexts in which the mainstream religion is monotheistic... Two women- led religions, the Shakers and Christian Science, do not fit this polydeistic pattern. Susan Sered, Women of the Sacred Groves: Divine Priestesses of Okinawa (1999) p. 62.
