I'm less interested in 'what beliefs people had' and more interested in 'why they had that belief'.
That’s the tough one Sean. Trying to understand the why behind dead people’s beliefs. Heck, it can be very hard to get a live person to explain the whys behind what they believe. You have set yourself a most difficult task.
If you are an existentialist, then existence precedes essence. Thus, creating belief systems is part and parcel in creating a personal “essence.” Just an idea.
