Do you accumulate enough faith to buy 5-7 universities at Education with Jesuit? Also I don't know if you do this already, but you could give the +100 gold founder belief a try to get tons of pre-Education gold. If you convert all 16 CSs, at least 7 AI cities and 5-7 of your own, you get 2800-3000 gold from religion in total. Probably a bit less than Tithe in the end, but you get the full benefit earlier. What ruin rewards do you pick as the Shoshone? Settler, worker are obvious picks but what about the third ruin in the cycle (before turn 20)?
