The relation between theater and religion was all through history a double-sided sward, but in the same time an inseparable entity. Sometimes opposing and confronting each other, other times using each other's language as a cause, a object, a reason or even a subject, theater and faith both aim humans heart, one offering joys of the unseen and eternal life, while the other deals with tangible matter of life here on earth.
