    I was the founder of a religion (so I have the holy city) but my Spanish neighbours helpfully sent missionaries down and converted all my cities,I dont want to give up on my religion but is it now for all intents & purposes dead?

    Inquisitors could help remove any unwanted religions in your cities. Your religion will reappear in the city where the inquisitor removed the rival religion without using a prophet who need more faith.

    Inquisitors DO remove hostile religions, but @ThirdRome said that ALL of his/her cities got 'babtised' ; which required a GProphet to stage a comeback .
    I'm not sure if a GProphet would kick out Bozo's {[generic enemy]} Inquisitor in that Holy City; but I'll give good odds that the GProphet wins .

    For serious religious wars, send 1 or 2 missionaries [MSSYs] and 2 Inquisitors [IQs] to target city :
    #1 IQ cleans out Bozo's infestation,
    #1 MSSY converts the city,
    #2 IQ gets stationed in city . Do this as often as needed; and bring some troops to kill/capture Bozo's infidel priests . If an infidel priest has a religious building you can use, capture; if not, kill it .
    If you can get to around 30+ Faith/turn, that's 1 IQ or MSSY every 7 turns without Piety or Holy Orders ... these can be used to BUY religious buildings that YOU can't build {because THEY got them first} .

    Remember that buildings on the ground in this city, BELONG TO THE CITY'S OWNER !!
    A city with 3 Faith bought religious buildings will crank out far more Faith/turn than just a shrine and temple city .

    There can be cases when the timing of your religious counter attack should :
    A] when you have a GProphet and enough Faith for a MSSY and an IQ to spend ;

    B] while Bozo's priests are close enough to capture within 1-3 turns after a DoW on that particular Bozo (that HAS a R.Building(s) you want) . Catch as many as you can; you can use them for YOUR cities, before you use an IQ to cleanse that city ;

    C] after YOUR cities have been 'buffed' with extra R.Buildings, you can go after Bozo's cities with the usual 2 IQs and 2 MSSYs and cavalry escorts {'Swiss Guards'} .

    For Bozo's Holy City, send a GProphet with escort to convert it to your religion, and leave him/her in that city with an IQ .
