In this savegame, I research Honor as Elohim, but Empyrean remains unfounded (and I don't receive an Ecclesiastic). Entering world builder and gifting myself Ecclesiastics yields bizarre results. (Popup announces that Empyrean has been founded in Cahir Abbey, Ecclesiastic consumed, no religion in city, religion advisor shows Empyrean as unfounded but lists Cahir Abbey as its holy city.) I very slightly modded the XML to make the Creative trait useful (+100% prod. of theatres, +50% culture) but I don't think that could affect anything.
