Guide to Religions

main content

Here you will find a guide to the major religions of the world. These have been created in order to give a brief explanation of the key features of the religious beliefs and practices of each faith.

It is hoped that each guide will help foster a deeper understanding and appreciation between races, cultures and faiths and encourage spiritual development whilst exploring beliefs other than those we have been brought up with.

The guides are not fully detailed and we accept that there are many sub-groups in each major religious group with historical and doctrinal differences. We hope the content of this site will give a flavour of the diversity, as well as the commonality, of religious belief.
