Can't tell the Old Gods from the Seven on Game of Thrones? Get all confused when there's suddenly talk of the Drowned God of the Iron Islands or R'hllor, the Lord of Light? It's enough for anyone watching the brilliant series to lose their Latin over. But fear not: George R.R. Martin and HBO are here to help.

HBO has released this new video in which A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin himself explains the four major religions of Westeros—with the help of show creators and executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Taking scenes from the show—keep your eyes peeled everyone, there are a few scenes we haven't seen yet, so SPOILERS—Martin explains how religion affects the characters of Game of Thrones and how truly important it is to the story.
