A belief in two gods, especially as independent and opposed principles of good and evil.
- ‘This opposition of ideas resulted in religious dualism (ditheism) which elements makes itself felt even nowadays in the form of customs and rituals.’

- ‘Similar to ditheism, moral dualism does not in any way imply that the religion in question is not monist or monotheistic.’
