• A religion is a system of symbols which acts to establish powerful, pervasive, and long-lasting moods in men by formulating conceptions of a general order of existence and clothing those conceptions with such an aura of factuality that the moods and motivations seem uniquely realistic.

    Clifford Geertz (2017). “The Interpretation of Cultures”, p.98, Hachette UK
