Matthew Paris

Godlore is the lore dealing with God and the beliefs of faith or worship. There are many worships in the world. The three Abrahamish faiths teach onegodliness, or the thought that only one God has being. These worships are Christendom, Jewishdom, and Muhammadom. Other worships, such as Hindudom, teach manigodliness. This kind of worships can have one, two, three, or an endless score of gods.

Godlore deals with the otherworldly realm. This is a realm of things which are unseen, have no body, and are outside the laws of worldken. Otherworldly things, like God, errandghosts, and the soul of man, are thought about in godlore.
