If we look at religion from a historical perspective, we find that culture and human society, are big factors. As we study, we can see how characteristics of human life differentiates such as art, literature, economics, and politics are molded by altering religious beliefs. When we study different rituals or scriptures, we can get a better understanding of how different communities from the past and present use their own traditions to mold and sustain themselves. As our text stated, historians are more focused on the “facts”. They wants to know why this happed, when it happen, where it happened, and what made it happen.
