Quiz Description

Twelve questions to test your faithfulness...in studying the history of the world's religions. Approximately half of the questions cover Judeo-Christian topics, while the remainder are a smattering of other religious systems. Honestly, I could probably write an entire Minileague on this, with enough time. Questions cover people, places, tenets, historical developments, and even a little math. Standard 1DS rules apply, void where prohibited, your mileage may vary.
