What is Capitalization in Religion and Mythology?

Before reading this lesson, we recommend studying the basic rules for capitalization. In that article it is mentioned that when referring to important people within a particular discipline of the same name written capitalized.

Within these areas to religion, to mythology in general, or, if you try to talk about other beings, among others. Some examples that we highlight are: Lord, Mohammed, Pegasus.

However, not all cases are capitalized. To know when to do so we invite you to consider the following rules:

Capitalize the names of the religious sphere.

Proper names with which we designate gods, prophets, and other things related to religion are written with capital letters.

Examples: Allah, Jesus Christ, Yemaya.
They are also written with capital letters the antonomásticos epithets and those invocations that are applied.
Examples: Our Lady of Fatima, the Great Architect, Purisima, the Nameless, the Malino, the Almighty, Our Lady of the Rosary, the Buddha of Limitless Light.

The noun “God” in capitalized

The noun is written only god capitalized in case we use it as a proper name and par excellence.

Example: In Islam, it is forbidden the representation of God in images. This rule holds when the substantive part of phrases or expressions.

Examples: Blessed be God !.
Do as God commands.

The noun “god” in lowercase

However, when we used more generally and we only mean that we speak of a supreme being, they are written in lowercase.

Examples: There is no god but Allah.
Ares is the god of war.

Jehovah is the Hebrew name of God of the Jews and Christians

When it comes to using the word, but in a metaphorical sense, the use of initial capital depends on the meaning as it has in prayer.

Example: That God sportsman / sportswoman is believed That god is believed a whole

Devil or demon: Nouns devil or demon, epithets used to refer to Satan or Lucifer, is written in lower case. Example: That person wanted to sell his soul to the devil / The priest said his soul was possessed by a demon

Capitalize sign of respect Is it right?

There are some texts that usually capitalized writing some personal pronouns, such as “Go with God, that He will guide you on your way.”

However, the rules of spelling, clearly indicate that there is no linguistic reason for that, therefore, it is recommended to write these pronouns, lowercase.

Capitalize the names of mythological beings and fabulous

The names of beings related to mythology or fabulous beings are written with capital letters since they are proper names.

Examples: Polyphemus, Pegasus, Andromeda, Pericles.
The names of fabulous creatures like golems or kraken are lowercase because it has the character of proper names.

common generic names, lowercase

Common names that designate generally different kinds of fabulous species, are written in lowercase, whether used in singular or plural.

Examples: a nymph, faun, siren, Cyclopes, thanks, Nereids.
