For how many different religions do you have a "working knowledge"?

Meaning you know more than simply that they exist and what part of the world they come from, or what was told to you by a church or religious leader who had an agenda in how other faiths were described.

  • I have practiced only as a Christian, although I have hopped around from Catholicism and through most of the Protestant denominations.

    I proofread textbooks for a living, so I have some basic knowledge of the roots and beliefs of many of the world's major religions--Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, the Confucian philosophies, Jainism, and so forth.

    I know there are many other religions that I've only heard the name of, or not heard of at all.
