Q: I'm looking for a God of X...

Is there a God of Chocolate? Is there a God of Credit Cards? Is there a God of Laundry?

You may just be curious, or you may be looking for a God for some specific purpose. (We recently had someone ask us for Gods of Marriage to invite to their wedding!)

There are Gods of practically everything. Biggie Gods deal with profound subjects such as Creation, Death and Love. But there are plenty of lesser deities who handle more mundane matters. In some cultures, there are Gods for every tree, rock, insect and raindrop.

On the other hand, the Romans were so worried about accidentally missing out obscure deities that they raised statues to Gods they didn't even know about, just to be on the safe side.

At the last count we have over two thousand deities on our books, so there's bound to be at least one to suit your needs. We update our records all the time and are always searching for those elusive Gods of Birdseed and Ashtrays.

If you're looking for a God (or Goddess) of something, your first port of call should be the Holy Database search page. Try a keyword search! But if you want to know about a particular mythology (e.g. Norse), you should browse the Pantheons. Gods also pop up elsewhere on the site. Explore!

If all else fails, and you truly can't find what you're looking for, drop us a line and we'll try to help you out.
