Highlights of A Song of Ice and Fire: Religion

The fourth season of the HBO TV series Game of Thrones premieres tomorrow, and I decided to write a series of posts on A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's book series the show is based on.

I've written a few times before about Game of Thrones, leveling criticism, mapping a fanciful comparison, and discussing narrative and history. In this series though, I'm being more straightforward: I'm writing about three themes in the books—two enjoyable ones, and one worthy of critique.

There are two thematic highlights that I really enjoy in A Song of Ice and Fire: The first I wrote about was history. Now I'll continue with religion.

Note: There won't be any plot spoilers here. I promise.
