A state religion (also called an established religion or official religion) is a religious body or creed officially endorsed by the state. A state with an official religion, while not secular, is not necessarily a theocracy, a country whose rulers have both secular and spiritual authority. State religions are official or government-sanctioned establishments of a religion, but the state does not need be under the control of the religion (as in a theocracy) nor is the state-sanctioned religion necessarily under the control of the state.

Official religions have been known throughout human history in almost all types of cultures, reaching into the Ancient Near East and prehistory. The relation of religious cult and the state was discussed by Varro, under the term of theologia civilis ("civic theology"). The first state-sponsored Christian church was the Armenian Apostolic Church, established in 301 AD. In Christianity, as the term church is typically applied to a Christian place of worship or organisations incorporating such ones, the term state church is associated with Christianity as sanctioned by the government, historically the state church of the Roman Empire in the last centuries of the Empire's existence.

In the Middle East, many states with primarily Islamic population have Islam as their state religion, either as the Shiite or Sunni variety, though the degree of religious restrictions on the citizen's everyday life varies by country. Rulers of Saudi Arabia use both secular and religious power, while Iran's secular presidents are supposed to follow the decisions of religious authorities since the revolution of 1979. Turkey, which also has a primarily Muslim population, became a secular country after Atatürk's Reforms, though unlike the Russian Revolution of the same time period, it did not result in the adoption of state atheism.

The degree to which an official national religion is imposed upon citizens by the state in contemporary society varies considerably; from high as in Saudi Arabia to minimal or none at all as in Denmark, England, Iceland, and Greece.

Located just over 10 km from the border with Syria, the Zaatari Refugee Camp is home to many people displaced by the conflict in the neighbouring country.

Satellite images like this can help to identify suitable locations for large refugee camps, which require traffic connections, water and electricity, and should be in a rather flat area. This area has been mapped a number of times to support the construction of the camp, give a detailed view of the structures within the camp, and support drainage work to alleviate flooding.

Original 1851 antique lithographed survey chart of Rebecca Shoal and vicinity on the western end of the Florida Keys, printed more than 165 years ago!
http://ow.ly/ThsN50gBUOa

The coverage area extends from the Dry Tortugas to Cottrell Key (labeled Cotteral's Key on the map). The map labels The Quicksands — "An extensive and very dangerous bank." There's a printed note in the lower corner: "The depth of water on Rebecca Shoal is ten feet. The soundings are in fathoms, except those within the dotted lines, which are in feet." The map is titled "Sketch F. No. 6. Showing the proposed Site of a Beacon on Rebecca Shoal, Florida Reef." It is drawn on a scale of 1:600,000, and the image area measures 17.8 x 19.3 cm [7" x 7¾"]. This map was published by the #UnitedStates #CoastSurvey in 1851 and is an #original, #authentic, #antique #map.
