  1. His philosophy is that for him, faith is not just a religion, and creating such a powerful religious institution with his army, he does not do it intentionally, but simply comes to it, taking into account the history of his life. He understands through the trials of money and lust that faith is the only right way out for a person. Faith is universal, right, and is grace.�

    This philosophy is very clear and simple for any person, because everyone strives for it. With his absolute sincerity in his goals and intentions, he gets people to follow him, and in doing so, he gains a huge number of followers, creating a lot of problems for the bureaucracy and the rulers of King's Landing.

  2. Even in the first appearances of this character, when he first met Cersei, it was obvious to me that whatever philosophy he shared with the people, his personal philosophy is power. Not direct – from the throne, but much more powerful-power over the throne.

    Perhaps he is absolutely not lying about how he spent his former life, but I think he is very disingenuous about the reasons for the change of orientation. It is likely that at some point he simply noticed how faith affects the minds of others, and even more so the crowd. Taking advantage of observations, he organized a successful sect in his achievements.

    It is impossible not to notice that he safely turns the main cunning characters. And it does it with a special strategy. Getting more and more. Many people are even afraid of him. (I'd like to wish Margaery good luck, since the Lanisters don't seem to have any hope.)

    So it is unlikely that he believes in his own philosophy, that he rubs everything and everything. His personal life is much more greedy.

  3. His sparrowishness is an allusion to Savonarola, who also believed that the elite of Florentine society is mired in sin, and the common people live in poverty and their suffering is not noticed by the elite and they ignore them. And just like Savonarola, EV punishes libertines (the Baelish brothel debacle) and homosexuals (the imprisonment of Loras Tyrell) and effectively controls the capital through his pawn, King Tommen Baratheon. However, Savonarola himself did not rule Florence for long and most likely they will merge by the end of the season

  4. For me, his Vorobeishestvo with his minions is the personification of the medieval Catholic Church in the person of its orders on a smaller (perhaps for now) scale with a clear connection with the state and with some of its attributes (army, territory). That is, everything looks like the creation of a state within a state.

    His Sparrow certainly has faith and good intentions, but I'm afraid he will soon suffer the fate of the “good guys” of the Game – death.

  5. His Vorobeishestvo and his retinue embody the original Templars, like the Order of the Knights of Christ! I think after Cersei gave the Go-ahead to the main Sparrow, then they felt the power and thereby strive to leave their mark in the history of Game of Thrones relying on Faith in the Seven!�

    But I think they will all be eliminated towards the end of the season! It's clear that Jaime Lannister and Cersei don't quite agree with the Sparrows and are probably plotting something dastardly against them!

  6. “Sparrows” is an attempt by Martin to tell about how the Catholic orders won (albeit at a short distance). They were different, and His Holiness Sparrow is closest to the Franciscans (this is his “philosophy”). Let's see how he unfolds further, I would not rule out the role of Ignatius Loyola for him.
