True character arises from a deeper well than religion.

Albeit the same well that Antigone drew from for her brother. Laws pre-dating Kings, rulers and order that governs society. Characters are archetypal, fictional in nature, despite or because of the Ancient Greek hegemony.
The philosophy of religion becomes important in assessing the above quote. The field includes the theoretical examination of the theses and notions involved in religious traditions as well as the essential philosophical undertaking of reflecting on issues of religious significance comprising of the nature of religion itself, alternative concepts of God or the ultimate reality, and the religious significance of general features of the cosmos (for instance, the emergence of consciousness and the laws of nature) and of historical events.
Philosophy of religion also incorporates the exploration and evaluation of worldviews (such as secular naturalism) that are alternatives to religious worldviews. Everyone trying to garner an understanding of the world needs to adopt an exploration of topics ranging from metaphysics, epistemology, value theory (including moral theory and applied ethics), philosophy of language, science, history, politics, art, and so forth and discover how these fields allow them to connect the dots in religious theories. Only this approach can lead to a well-rounded appreciation of religion.
Ideally, an exploration of the nature and history of the philosophy of religion would commence with an analysis or definition of religion. An interesting starting point can be the modified definition of religion provided in the Dictionary of Philosophy of Religion, Taliaferro & Marty:
“A religion involves a communal, transmittable body of teachings and prescribed practices about an ultimate, sacred reality or state of being that calls for reverence or awe, a body which guides its practitioners into what it describes as a saving, illuminating or emancipatory relationship to this reality through a personally transformative life of prayer, ritualized meditation, and/or moral practices like repentance and personal regeneration” (2010: 196–197; 2018, 240).
