About the Book
Religious poetry is any poetry that contains religious teachings, themes, or references. The influence of religion on poetry has been great in all areas where religion has taken hold. For example, Christian poems often directly reference the Bible, while others provide allegory. Perhaps the greatest examples of Christian poetry in the English language are John Milton's epics Paradise Lost (1667) and Paradise Regained (1671), dealing with the fall from grace and the salvation of the human race. Religious poetry also exists within the Hindu (Aghang, Ovi, Ramayana, Uttararamacarita edtc), Islamic and Jewish faiths to name a few.

The history of religion refers to the written record of human religious customs, practices and ideas across several millennia. It begins with the invention of writing 5,200 years ago. The prehistory of religion refers to the study of religious beliefs in existence prior to the emergence of written records, which time varies for different cultures.
