Having Trouble Thinking of a Word


#1

Hey all. Working on a research paper and I'm having trouble thinking of a particular word. Tried thesaurus.com but nothing seemed to fit. Here goes:

The word is generally tied to religions and would be used in the following sentence, for example: "Angels, halos, and saints are all part of the ________ of Christianity."

Its something along the lines of landscape or set or array, but not quite.

If anybody can think of anything I'll be extremely grateful. Thanks guys.
