Organized religion serves as a major source of authority figures. Fiction can build on this by attributing to TheChurch an absurd amount of power, [[TheTheocracy official]] or [[NGOSuperpower not]], and organization, or go the other direction and portray its members as [[TheVicar harmless old men sipping tea]].

** However, in the backstory, the Alessian Order was a [[FantasticRacism rabidly anti-Elven]] religious sect which established a [[TheTheocracy Theocracy]] in the 1st Era that wielded nearly as much power as the Emperor at its height. It was a very solemn, strict, severe, spartan, and sometimes outright ''cruel'' Order. In addition to their pogrom against the remaining [[OurElvesAreBetter Ayleids]] in Cyrodiil (many of whom sided ''[[TokenHeroicOrc with]]'' St. Alessia during the Alessian Revolt and were allowed to keep their lands as vassals) which included the [[BookBurning destruction of Ayleid artifacts and writings]], the Order attempted to purge ''the gods themselves'' of their Elven basis. Wielding ill-begotten divine power, the Order caused what is known as the "Middle Dawn", the first and longest [[TimeCrash Dragon Break]] on record with a heaping dose of RealityBreakingParadox and RealityIsOutToLunch. The excesses of the Order would eventually become too much to accept and the Order would be destroyed in the War of Righteousness by an alliance of Tamriellic nations. However, their influence on Imperial law and religion can still be felt in the Empires that have come since their fall.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'': The Aedra-worshiping Imperial Cult tends toward SaintlyChurch, while ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'''s Tribunal Temple, worshiping a triad of {{Physical God}}s, is something of a ScamReligion (corrupt leaders, but the worshipers can be anywhere on the scale). By ''Skyrim'' the Tribunal Temple has become the ''New'' Temple as a result of the aforementioned Tribunal of {{Physical God}}s either being killed or going missing. From the limited exposure to it, it seems to be fairly similar to the old Temple, albeit with the former Daedric Anticipations of the Tribunal slotted back in on the top as Reclamations, and the Tribunal demoted to saints.

** Throughout the series, the
Aedra-worshiping Imperial Cult tends toward SaintlyChurch, while Temple of the Nine Divines is the primary religious sect of most of Tamriel and is the official religion of each incarnation of the Cyrodiilic Empire. It is treated as a SaintlyChurch in every facet, with it being uniformly benevolent in every series' appearance to date.
** As primarily seen in
''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'''s Morrowind]]'', the [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmeri (Dark Elf)]] Tribunal Temple, worshiping Temple is another.

Though thought of by most non-Dunmer as a ScamReligion (corrupt leaders, but ScamReligion, in ages past, when the Tribunal deities themselves lived and worked among their people, the Temple was an undeniable force of good. However, [[spoiler:when the Tribunal were cut off from the source of their divine power, they were forced to withdraw from the day-to-day affairs of the Dunmer in order to conserve power]]. When mortal leaders took over the Temple, it quickly became a CorruptChurch (though individual worshipers can be could still fall anywhere on the scale).

* In the ''Literature/DreambloodDuology'', the priesthood of Hananja essentially rules the city-state of Gujaareh, with most of the city's power centered in the Hetawa, where the priests live, rather than with the palace and the Prince. Hananja's priests also serve as the gatekeepers of Hananja's magic.
