The following is a list of major religions in Thialrer, as well as major denominations of those religions, and a brief summary of each.

CHRISTIANITY: Christianity is the largest religion in Thialrer and in 1st Epitome United.

Thelranianism: a Protestant denomination endemic to Thialrer, Thelranianism is rather akin to Lutheranism or Anglicanism, and is a High Church denomination. Thelranianism originated out of the Thialren Reformation started by King Saint Ezra I the Great, beginning with the publication of his Fifty Treatises of Christianity, which outlined his plans for the Thialren church after its split with Catholicism and the Anglican church. The biblical canon consists of Luther's Canon and the Book of Enoch, with its theology largely akin to that of Saint Luther's. It practices open communion and adheres to a modified episcopal polity incorporating some elements of a presbyterian polity. It views icons and mass as unnecessary, but not something to be discouraged, ordains women, and does not utilize the filioque in the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed.

Lutheranism: the original Protestant denomination, Lutheranism began when Martin Luther, and monk in the Catholic church, called for reform with the publication of his Ninety-five Theses. He triggered the Protestant Reformation by doing so, and set the precedent in Protestant denominations for the marriage of priests due to his marriage to Katharina von Bora. The largest Lutheran church in Thialrer is the ELCT, or Evangelical Lutheran Church in Thialrer. The current Presiding Bishop of the ELCT is Catherine Nurzhanuly, the first woman to hold the post.

Messianic Judaism: Messianic Judaism is widely considered to be another Christian denomination. Messianic Jews are largely ethnic Jews and observe Jewish traditions and customs, and their theology aligns with typical Christian theology. Thialrer has a long history of Jews, and Messianic Judaism is largely concentrated in the Union of Amakiir, a Messianic Jewish-majority state. Most Thialren Jews speak Yavrish, aka Judeo-Thialren, a Jewish diaspora language which originated in Thialrer.

Eastern Orthodoxy: see Thialren Orthodox Church

Other Christian

Calvinism: see LinkCalvinism

UNAFFILIATED: a blanket term to refer to the irreligious, atheists, agnostics, etc. There's not really much to say.

ISLAM: a monotheistic religion centered around the teachings of Muhammad. Islam teaches that there is one, indivisible, singular God (Allah) and that the Quran is the final, verbatim word of God as revealed to Muhammad, the final prophet in Islam. Islam is divided into two main sects: Sunni Islam and Shia Islam. Shia Islam is more prevalent in Thialrer, with most Thialrens adhering to Ahmedi Ismai'lism. Islam is most prevalent in Thalristan, where it is the majority religion. The current imam (a type of supreme religious leader in Shia Islam; also a title of a priest in Sunni Islam) of Ahmedi Ismai'lism is Ashkan al-Ahmed, the father of the current Emira of Thalristan, Kira al-Ahmed.
