Ethnic/religious background.

It means the characteristics, or spirit of a community, it's culture. Or it could be the spirit of an era. What it's characteristics were.

Originaly, it was used in a question like "What is your religion, who is your God."

regardless of who thinks what my former post to this post was better, ibeit it could have been cleaned up some...LOL
Ethos is shared fundamental traits. For example, the traits that a group carry may be a t-shirt, attitude, or beliefs.
