Gods and Kings: How to Found a Religion and Enhance Religion

One of the features of Civilization V: Gods & Kings is the ability to found a religion. Below are the instructions on how to do this:

  1. Once you have constructed a building which produces Faith (such as a Shrine), after earning enough Faith you will be prompted to found a Pantheon. This will give you a base bonus for your civilization.
  2. After you start earning Faith, a Great Prophet will begin to be born in your Capital City.
  3. Once your Great Prophet is available to use, select the unit and choose the top option from their actions menu. "Found Religion" will bring up a new window for creating the Religion.
  4. In the new window, you will be given options to customize your Religion. Once you have selected a symbol, name, and both bonuses, click on the button in the bottom right corner of the window to found the Religion.
  5. Once a religion has been founded, when your next Great Prophet is born you'll have the option to further enhance your religion by following the same method used to found it.

NOTE: The Byzantine Civilization get a 3rd bonus Religion Bonus slot available to them as one of their leader bonuses.
