Indeed, before the rise of modern science during the Age of Enlightenment, people looked for all of the answers concerning nature and existence within the realms of the supernatural. What today we understand in scientific terms would be attributed to an angry deity in ancient times (plague, volcanic eruptions etc).Life was back breaking and short for many.
Ignorance was the way of things.
Religious belief gave a semblance of hope.
Just not in the here and now!
