Translated from the original by Costas Balomenos
he religions, not only the oldest but also the newer, we separate them in polytheistic and monotheistic, i.e. to those who accept the existence of many gods and to those who accept the existence one God. Apart from the above distinction, the religions are divided - regardless if they are polytheistic or monotheistic - in those who they owe their existence to a founder and in those that there were traditionally without having been founded by someone. We will deal with religions that have a founder. We would mention the founders of religions, not in turn of their appearance, but in alphabetical order to assist the readers.
