Abstract [en]

It is almost self-evident for many people that one has to be a metaphysical realist in order to be a religious believer. Most of the debates on religious realism and religious antirealism are focusing upon the claim that truth is correspondence between a description and independently existing entities. I will question the fruitfulness of this claim and argue for moving the focus to an internal perspective. I will do this by clarifying the use of the word "reality" taking into account that for us reality is always conceptualized reality.
