Name Of The Amarrian Religion?

"Christianity" would not apply as there was no "Christ" for the Amarrians.
Unless there is a name cited for the religion of the Amarr somewhere, I suppose "Imperial Orthodox" would suffice...

Perhaps, but would we call it that? There has to be *some* title to the religion. It's possible it is so synonymous with the Amarrian race that they are referred to as the same thing.

"Chosen, you are first before God.
You are the True and the Faithful.
But in such a state must you hold yourselves high above all.
And constantly prove yourself worthy of Gods Love.
How can such a gift be repaid,
Other than to toil all our days,
In his glorious service,
According to his will,
Serving him always,
Bearing him first in our thoughts,
Always must we strive to show him our worth,
For we are the Chosen, Blessed above all."
- The Scriptures, Anoyia's Exhortation to the Faithful
In all the scriptures we are referred to simply as the 'Chosen', the 'Faithful' or the people of Amarr.
As we are the Chosen people of Amarr
We come from the land of Amarr
We follow the 'Faith of Amarr'
This is simply an observation by me, a student of the scriptures. Perhaps one of our Clergy members may shed some more light.

It's also possible that people are known more by what strand of the religion they follow - ie Catechists, Tetrimonites etc.
