This essay considers the complex ways in which religion and literature overlap. It is written by someone deeply involved in the practice of literature, as a poet of many years, as well as a teacher and academic specialist in the history and philosophy of religions, especially in relation to peace and conflict. This succinct essay is the fruit of some 30 years of deep reflection and thought on a subject of profound importance to the direction humanity chooses to guide our lives today and in the future. Many of the great religions of mankind are based on texts - how are we understand their relative merits and significance ? What criteria can we use ? Ethical or Aesthetic ? Religions also use analogy and metaphor to express their versions of truth, as does poetry and literature - but do religion and literature share a common understanding of truth, or differ in their expectations ?
