In religion, transcendence is a condition or state of being that surpasses, and is independent of, physical existence. It is affirmed in some way of the divine in most major religious traditions, and is opposed to the notion of a God, or an Absolute, as existing only in the physical order and not beyond it (immanentism), or as being somehow, in the final analysis, indistinguishable from it (pantheism). Transcendence can be attributed to the divine not only in its being, but also in its knowabilty.
