The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Neither of these pies look anything like a modern American pie, except for the crust of the 1700s pie. At this point I would probably use the Medieval English filling with the Colonial American crust.

For comparison, let's look at a century old recipe -notice the use of sugar for the filling and the presentation of the apples themselves :

A little anecdote of why I like apple pies. I have a memory of my grandmother baking an apple pie inside an RV... WHILE THE RV WAS IN MOTION. I was probably around 7 years old, and we were driving from Canada, back into the US. The issue being that we had a good number of apples - I think "Granny Smith" apples and we could not cross the border with the raw apples. But there was no restriction on baked apples. The oven ran with LP Gas, so it wasn't affected by the motion of the vehicle, though I still don't know what my grandmother did to keep the pie steady inside the tiny oven!
