I can't find a word to describe this.?

I'm looking for a word that means "the study of why we have religion". Please don't confuse this on the study of religion itself, or the study of what religious people worship. I'm specifically looking for -why- we have it. Thanks in advance :)


Theology would be the study of faith, practice, experience, and spirituality. It is the study of God. I'm looking for the study of why we have religion, not what religion is.
