Words for Different Types of Religion

A new page! "Dictionary List of Different Types of Religion".

Religion is very diverse. Categorizing religions is very difficult, and the results are always inadequate because we are combining the problems of comparing cultural understandings, differing word uses, and differing historical appreciations of key terms. The very concept of "religion" has proven impossible to define. So I've listed some of the common schemes I use throughout my texts to define different categories of religion.
