The role of religious imagination in religious consciousness/ideas is a topic of interest to psychologists, theologians, religious studies scholars, and philosophers of religion. Study of religious imagination often goes together with phenomenology of religious experience, with the study of religious art, and with model-theoretic and narrative theologies. Because imagination suggests human construction, its role and extent is especially controversial, and a special concern for epistemology of religion is its implications for debate between realists vs. fictionalists about the aims of religious discourse.
