What is religious belief?


Many philosophers and other commentators think of religious belief as a combination of proto-cosmological belief and moral belief or moral precepts: a theory of the universe plus a theory of how to behave. This conception of religious belief does not seem to have room for what is one of the most obvious and central features of religion: religious practice. Why should a combination of cosmology and morality give rise to practices like going to church, mosque or synagogue? In this talk I sketch an alternative conception of religious belief that gives an answer to this question.
