Tomatekh's Historical Religion Mods
17 items
Description
This mod is compatible with both the Brave New World and the Gods and Kings expansions.

An edited down version of the mod which only includes religions which the official civs have a preference for (13 new religions) can be found here: Historical Religions Edit (BNW or GK). A version which includes all of my various denomination packs in a single download can be found here: Historical Religions Complete (BNW & GK).

~~~

This mod adds 51 additional historical (pre-modern and indigenous) religions and schisms to the base game. The religions are complete with icons, civlopedia entries, etc.

The individual leaders are also updated to choose their appropriate historical religion. A civ's in-game religious preference is, if applicable, listed in parenthesis after the religion in the list. This is merely their programmed preference and not any indication of where a religion originated. A civ may only have one preference.

~~~

Note:
- This mod requires either the Brave New World or the Gods and Kings expansions.
- Updates to the mod will most likely break saved games. Do not update unless you are ready to start a new game.

~~~

Modders, please see this link[forums.civfanatics.com] for instructions on how to include internal support for this mod within your civilization mods.

Thanks

Tengriism is already part of the base game

Uhm, it's been a while since I made them so I'm not completely sure, but I believe I found the symbol in either Finnish cave art or on a Sami shaman drum and then stylized it to match the style used by religions in the game. As with most indigenous religions, Sami religion has no official symbol or name, so I used my own interpretation from research to create something that I believed represented it and fit the style of the game.

Thank you, that's turning up a lot more results using JSTOR. If I can ask another question, where did you find the symbol for it, is it a design of yours, or did it come from your research?
Tomatekh  [author] Dec 23, 2017 @ 5:14am 
Most of the civilopedia entries I wrote with articles I found on JSTOR, which is an online academic article database you can access through most universities (with a little bit of info also taken from more general sites like Wiki). I don’t remember if I got the name “Noaidevuohta” from one of those articles or if it was suggested to me by someone. Usually, I start with searches like “Sami religion”, etc.
Drea Dec 23, 2017 @ 1:11am 
How did you get info on Noaidevuohta? My rudimentary search right now only found it im one small article and talked about in one book about the Sami, which apparently is only located in 5 libraries across the world.

Mormonism is included in the Historical Religions Complete version of this mod and/or the Christian Denominations add-on for this mod (both linked in the description above).
CaptainReklaw Jul 16, 2017 @ 8:52am 
you should add Mormonism, it's larger than Judism today, although less than 2 centries old
Red Dirt Gamer Apr 11, 2017 @ 12:58pm 
Can you add Atheism symbol to the list? I mean it isn't a religion, but it would be nice to have some benefits such as science, city happiness, and agriculture.
