Main article: Vorinism

Much of the world follows the Vorin religion. Vorinism tells of a struggle between forces of the Voidbringers and humanity. The Voidbringers forced humanity out of its afterlife, called the Tranquiline Halls. Vorin peoples believe that when one dies, he/she continues in the role he/she was in, but towards the regaining of the Tranquline Halls. In Alethkar, a man's highest calling is as a warrior in life so he can be a warrior in the afterlife. The religion also tells of the Lost Radiants, an Order that once fought against the Voidbringers during the wars on Roshar known as Desolations. "Lost Radiants" is the name that Vorinism gave the Knights Radiant after they apparently betrayed humanity in the distant past. The deity of the Vorin religion is the Almighty.[1] Those who reject the existence of the Almighty are referred to as heretics. The priests of the Vorin religion are referred to as Ardents. There are many different Devotaries of Vorinism, which vary greatly in their interpretation of the beliefs.
