Most inhabitants of New Elysium have an adherence to a god, some more than one, and the majority worship benign deities.

Temples and churches are not as abundant as one might expect in such a large conurbation, but with such a diversity of religions followed small and often private shrines are commonplace.

Worshippers of less compassionate gods no doubt do live within the town, but except for in the harbour district few are overt about their cosmic allegiances.

There is a growing movement of those who don't worship gods blindly, and the weekly meetings of The Society for Literary and Philosophical Advancement can get quite lively.
