Philosophical Exploration

This is identified as philosophical exploration of religious practices and beliefs. Religion imposes on every area of human life, and it has to be looked into by all scholarly disciplines:

history/anthropology/sociology/psychology/philosophy of religion.

The basic science of studying this subject is phenomenology of religion; it collects data from the religion, explaining and describing the phenomena, constructing typologies and comparing the kinds of things across the range of religions, but without making value judgements.
