Here you'll find the expected, saints, nuns, bishops/priests/ministers etc, but also people who were simply faithful, or destroyed by a religion. One thing I've learned with studying different belief systems over the years, is that religion can bring faith to the hopeless, but also lead to mass destruction, death, and war. Studying religion is not for the faint of heart, as these entries will attest to.
