Folk Christianity is defined differently by various scholars. Definitions include "the Christianity practiced by a conquered people;" Christianity as most people live it - a term used to "overcome the division of beliefs into Orthodox and unorthodox;" Christianity as impacted by superstition as practiced by certain geographical Christian groups; Christianity defined "in cultural terms without reference to the theologies and histories."
