epistemology, religious
   Religious epistemology is the branch of epistemology concerned with beliefs of a specifically religious nature, and the specific epistemological issues that they raise including the relationships among revelation, faith and reason. Since the Enlightenment there has been an inordinate amount of attention paid to the epistemological evaluation of religious beliefs, in particular the extent to which they meet (or fail to meet) the strictures of classical foundationalism. In recent years this assumption has been sharply criticised by defenders of Reformed epistemology.
