So how does the religion of the Faith ofthe Seven from Game of Thrones depict to Catholicism? Well, the Faith of the Seven is basically thesame as its real life analogue. In an interview, George R.R. Martin states,”Instead of the Trinity of the Catholic Church, you have The Seven, where thereis one God with seven aspects. In Catholicism, you have three aspects- theFather, the Son, and the Holy Ghost…” As you can see, both Catholicism and theFaith of the Seven believe in only one divine being along with the differentaspects that represents each virtue. Additionally, both have hierarchy in thereligion.
Catholicism conveys with it a power structure that is hierarchal,with the highest positioning clergy, the Pope, who lives in the ApostolicPalace of the Vatican, and a council of Cardinals. The Faith of the Seven,correspondingly, has the High Septon as the most elevated positioning clergy,who lives in the Sept of Baelor, who manages The Seven together with a councilof the most confounding positioning septons. Moreover, both religions have aholy text; Catholicism has the “Bible” and the Faith of the Seven has “TheSeven-Pointed Star”. When it comes to morality, both look down upon gambling,prostitution, homosexuality, and incest. And finally, linking the Sparrows tothat of the Protestant Reformation, which I will go in more detail in thefollowing paragraph.
