So how does the religion of the Faith of
the Seven from Game of Thrones depict to Catholicism?  Well, the Faith of the Seven is fundamentally
the same as its non-fictional analogue. In an interview, George R.R. Martin
states, “Instead of the Trinity of the Catholic Church, you have The Seven,
where there is one God with seven aspects. In Catholicism, you have three
aspects- the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost…” As you can see, both
Catholicism and the Faith of the Seven believe in only one deity along with
different aspects that represents a different virtue. Additionally, both have
hierarchy in the religion. Catholicism conveys with it a power structure that
is hierarchal, with the most elevated positioning clergy, the Pope, who lives
in the Apostolic Palace of the Vatican, and a council of Cardinals. The Faith
of the Seven, correspondingly, has the High Septon as the most elevated positioning
clergy, who lives in the Sept of Baelor, who manages The Seven together with a
council of the most confounding positioning septons. Moreover, both religions
have a holy text; Catholicism has the “Bible” and the Faith of the Seven has
“The Seven-Pointed Star”. When it comes to morality, both look down upon gambling,
prostitution, homosexuality, and incest. And finally, linking the Sparrows to
that of the Protestant Reformation, which I will go in more detail in the
following paragraph.
