Holy City States This mod allows Religous City States to found religions, complete with flavors for religion names and beliefs! Ally with a religious city-state (or conquer it) in order to be branded the 'Patron' of its religion (you must also have that religion in most of your cities). A Patron acts like a founder, and recieves the founder benefits of that religion! Patron status is lost when no longer ally / no longer controlling that respective city state. Only one player may be a Patron of a religion at once. If you conquer a Holy City from a major civilization, you once again recieve the Patron status - so long as the religion is the majority in most of your cities. Available on steam workshop. Preferred Religions and Beliefs Geneva - Christianity Lhasa - Buddhism, Asceticism Jerusalem - Judaism, Tithe La Venta - none Vatican City - Christianity, Papal Primacy Wittenberg - Christianity, Religious Texts If the religions/beliefs they favor are not available, they will pick randomly.
