Hand In The Collecting Plate: Religion in Thief Analysed

The Escapist has a collection of articles addressing religion in games this week. One in particular caught my eye: Robbing Gods, in which Will Hindmarch examines the role of religion (churches, faith, dogma etc) and Religion (as a theme) in the Thief games.

It's an interesting - if regretably short - read that covers how Looking Glass use the little details of the series' factions (Hammerites, Pagans and Keepers) to suggest a wider world and involve the player emotionally and intellectually in it.
