← Back to: List of phobias
Latrophobia (from latreia, Greek for worship) is the fear of worship. Worship is used to honor, praise, and respect gods or things believe to be divine and can especially be fearful for people who fear gods or religious practices. Many latrophobic sufferers would also fear churches where they commonly worship, so they would avoid going to churches or other theological and religious places.
Interestingly, the fear of worship can even be caused by worshiping the fear (phobolatry)!
