Featured Article: Arthur Phillip
British naval officer and colonial administrator. Phillip was appointed Governor of New South Wales, the first European colony on the Australian continent, and was the founder of the site which is now the city of Sydney. The task of establishing the settlement proved to be a demanding one, as the settlers often faced starvation. Phillip, however, succeeded, and in doing so laid the foundation of what today is the nation state of Australia. The egalitarian spirit of Australia has it origins in the pioneer settlement over which Governor Phillip presided.

As religious traditions are often deeply embedded into specific cultural contexts, these traditions often contain moral codes that outline the relationships that a believer is expected to cultivate with respect to themselves, other believers, outsiders, and the supernatural world.
