Historical Religions are a collection of mods by Tomatekh with the purpose of adding additional pre-modern and indigenous religions to the base game. As the standard 13 religions included in the base game are largely focused around the major living world religions, the Historical Religions mods allow many official and mod civs a more historically correct religious preference (i.e. Carthage can prefer Canaanism instead of Islam).

The religious names and preferences listed below are reflective of the Historical Religions Complete version of the mod. Civ names in italics refer to official civilizations. Civilizations without a listed decision will default to the generic decision, Hold a Holy Festival, or the decision of their base denomination. All religious decisions are functionally identical but choose a random bonus yield at game start.

Base Religions

The base 13 religions remain present when using the Historical Religions mods; however, civ religious preferences have been updated to reflect the added religions. Several of the base religions have also been renamed due to the addition of religious denominations.

This change is only aesthetic.
