Comparative religion is a field of religious studies that analyzes interpretive differences of common themes and ideas among the world's religions. Often in parallel with comparative mythology, this field of study relies heavily upon the examination of myth and spirituality, deriving essential themes from religious metaphor, and tracing in various ways a possible direct cultural connection between them. It also makes comparisons between the rituals and other aspects of various faiths besides just the myths.
