Religious philosophy is the explanation of the meanings and justifications behind fundamental religious claims that is inspired and directed by religion, such as Buddhist philosophy, Christian philosophy, Hindu philosophy or Islamic philosophy. It is particularly interested in the nature and existence of God, or gods, or the divine.

It is sometimes distinguished from philosophy of religion, a branch of philosophy that is concerned with the philosophical study of religion. Philosophy of religion is the thinking about religion which critically examines the religions of the world, their justifications, meanings, social purposes, and claims, which can be carried out dispassionately by a believer and non-believer alike.

Concepts specifically concerning the existence and nature of God are listed under Category:Theology.
