References Library

Xenogears is full of mythological and religious references, and many of them are significant to the story. So with the help of several contributors and more books than I can carry, we've amassed this list of terms from the game and their mythical counterparts. If you've ever wanted to know what terms like 'Anima' or 'Kadomony' mean, this is the place to be!

Note: This is only a glossary, and specializes in identifying these references, but not always in explaining them to the fullest extent of my knowledge. I've provided a list of sources if you would like to study these subjects further. Contributions are always welcome.
