Tenshism, Engelismus or Tenshizumu (literally "Angelism"), is the syncretic state religion of Mikuni-Hulstria, also referred to as the Kaisākaruto or the Imperial Cult. Tenshism is principally a form of syncretism between Hosianism, Daenism and Kamism - held together by a core belief in the Divine Right of Emperors. While nominally acknowledging the existence of the monothestic Qedarite God, Tenshism received its name for its passionate worship of Angels and Saints as a pantheon of lesser deities alongside the supreme God. Tenshism is also notable for claiming that the prophets of the Qedarite religions, such as Eliyahu, Ahmad and Ariel were in fact all reincarnations of Bahram Bidar - and for it's dogmatic belief that the Emperors of Mikuni are living Gods.

Tenshism is highly mystical - and consists of many public and secret cults, all dedicated to the worship of different Saints and Angels. Though traditionally a disorganised fringe, it has recently been organised into a established state church by the House Yukio-Labsburg, and is known as the Evangelical Universal Church of the Orient or simply the Imperial Church. The Church is Caesaropapist, and all its affairs are controlled by the Imperial Court. The holy book of the Tenshist faith is the Evangelion (meaning "Good News"), which they claim contains the true and complete gospel - all others considered to be forgeries and distortions.
