Christian

Beyond the trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
an indeterminate number of "saints" are also
powerful allodynes in the beliefs of many
Christian sects.

This is a 14th- or 15th-century Eastern Orthodox
icon of the warrior Saint Demetrius by an unknown
painter.

*

Mediaeval Christians in Western Europe imputed
certain allodynes to some other religions which were
in fact unknown to those other religions. Termagant
was one such, an imagined deity of Islam who
personified that religion's European reputation for
encouraging perpetual manic rage in its followers.
