OriginAround the 8th century BCE
Zemeprievadai and Old Auravas City-states Beliefs

Shviesism is a polytheistic religion practiced mainly in Zemeprievadai. Shviesism is a combination of beliefs from the different city-states fo what is now Zemeprievadai and Auravas. Each city has their own patron god they pray to. Šviesus, the god of gods, is the main god of Shviesism. Shievist beliefs trace back for millennia in the areas that are now Zemeprievedai and Auravas, but Shviesist worship in its developed sense really began in the 8th century BCE, after the end of the Early Aurav Dark Age. While Shviesist worship declined somewhat in the later days of the Kingdom of Aurav, and was nearly wiped out of the Kaskadan Horn after the Silvist invasion, Shviesism is still a prominent religion in Zemeprievadai to this day.
