Theology is the critical study of the nature of the divine. It is taught as an academic discipline.
The term theology has been deemed by some as only appropriate to the study of religions that worship a supposed deity (a theos), i.e. more widely than monotheism; and presuppose a belief in the ability to speak and reason about this deity (in logia). They suggest the term is less appropriate in religious contexts that are organized differently (religions without a single deity, or that deny that such subjects can be studied logically). ("Hierology" has been proposed as an alternative, more generic term)
The Liber Abaci Institute through the theologist Rolando Nuztas have a new perspective of the divine after the analisis of the religions of our world.Liber Abaci Theology (website link)
