The Faith of the Seven, often simply referred to as the Faith, is one of the dominant religions in the Seven Kingdoms. The Faith worships the Seven Who Are One, a single deity with seven aspects or faces (although the less educated, who do not grasp this concept, often believe that there are seven different gods). In association with the seven aspects of their god – the Father, the Mother, the Crone, the Smith, the Maiden, the Warrior, and the Stranger – the number seven is considered holy.
The Faith arose among the hills of Andalos in Essos, where the Andals lived. The Andals brought the Faith to Westeros when they invaded the Seven Kingdoms, largely supplanting the local worship of the old gods. In the Reach, the Starry Sept was constructed at Oldtown, which became the center of the Faith and the home of the High Septon, the Father of the Faithful and the voice of the new gods on earth, for thousand of years, until the construction of the Great Sept of Baelor (depicted) in King's Landing was finished. During Aegon's Conquest, the High Septon convinced Lord Manfred Hightower to open his gates to King Aegon I Targaryen, thereby ensuring a peaceful surrender. He later anointed Aegon, after which it became traditional for the High Septon to give their blessing to every new king. Although the Targaryens had converted to the Faith on Dragonstone before Aegon's day, they still continued their Valyrian customs of incestuous marriages. Such a marriage resulted in the Faith Militant uprising, when the Faith took up arms against King Aenys I Targaryen. The Faith warred against House Targaryen for the remainder of Aenys's reign, and the entire reign of his successor, Maegor I. During the reign of Jaehaerys I Targaryen the issues between the Crown and the Faith were finally resolved, although the Faith received several constrictions as a result. Read more...
