An interpretation of the inner workings and purpose of the world.


An interpretation of the world and its possible origin. Unlike philosophy, it incorporates magic and miracles. Possibly tied to the teachings of a prophet (a person showing sings of clairvoyance - the ability to predict future events) or martyr (a person who puts forth a great deal of effort to spread their beliefs and possibly suffers in the end for it). It also establishes an ethical doctrine for its believers to follow.

An art-like act meant to invoke magic performed in the name of religion is a ritual.

The journey of discovering of understanding of the world and religious belief is a pilgrimage.
