"Three things are necessary for the salvation of man, to know what he ought to believe, to know what he ought to desire, and to know what he ought to do." –St. Thomas Aquinas Theology is born from the scientific approach to spirituality. It is the ultimate development of religion which has transformed from simple beliefs to an object of research and speculation. The study of religious traditions and beliefs existed at least as far back as the Classical Greeks, who were known for their extremely rich mythology and religious culture. The importance of theology is seen through its incredible effect in world history. Religious disputes have killed an immeasurable amount of human beings and they continue to do so today. The Romans killed Christians because of their radical new beliefs which denied the existence of the Roman gods. Christians killed Jews, Muslims, and even other Christians over religious disputes. Conversely, the doubt that a deity even exists has been around just as long as the concept of religion. The absence of religious beliefs is known as atheism. Generally this means there is no higher absolute than humanity and this view has spawned a plethora of works that portray the hypocrisy of faith. In this exhibit I hope to show the different views on religion in a number of the readings we have discussed in class.
