This episode of Star Warsologies explores faith, religion, and the Force

This time we examine religious beliefs and practices in the galaxy far, far away with Fr. Andrew Kinstetter, a Roman Catholic priest in the diocese of Cheyenne, Wyoming. What is monasticism and how do the Jedi practice it? Why would the Ewoks worship C-3PO as a golden god? How does spirit of the law vs. letter of the law play out with Din Djarin's Children of the Watch sect? What's wrong with the Jedi Code? We also learn how Catholic priests have a master/apprentice connection! Check out this episode on Star Wars & religion and find out!

In Star Warsologies, hosts James Floyd and Melissa Miller combine their love of Star Wars with their keen interest in all things academic, scientific, or technological by asking experts about how their field is represented in a galaxy far, far away. It's a monthly podcast about science and Star Wars!
