Ambrasianism Ambrasianism is the state religion of Ambrasia and practiced by minority populations throughout southern Pytharnia, but especially in Gonfaloy and Amosgire. The rise of Ambrasianism began with the Ambrasian Reformation in the twelfth century. Conservatives and liberals in the Arathracian and Isxinthion clergy of Ambrasia adopted major doctrinal reforms which resulted effectively in a new religion. Emsiadheal dhailg Dealdha Struiagha, 1087 to 1146, was chiefest among the reformers and authored several important documents critical to Ambrasianism. Ambrasianism focuses on the cult and worship of the sun-god Amrulon and places few important roles on his first-born, Arathrax. Additionally, the last scion of the Deavingeal Dynasty renounced his claim to the crown and converted to Ambrasianism. In some ways, Ambrasianism is a reversion to the traditional cult of pre-Yophenthean Amyrn. The liturgy of the Ambrasian Religion was formerly conducted in the now extinct Ambrasian Language, a daughter language of Classical Yophenthean. Many Ambrasian religious terms survive today in the Gonfalese Language.

In Ambrasianism, the purpose of ceremonial worship is very important as well as the use of traditional sites for solar observances.

Ambrasian saints are categorized as 'once-blessed,' 'twice-blessed,' and 'thrice-blessed.'
