For the mirror universe counterpart, see Bajoran religion (mirror).

The Bajoran religion was the faith of the Bajoran people, based on the worship of the Prophets. The Bajorans believed the Prophets guided and protected Bajor from their abode in the Celestial Temple. (DS9 episode: "Emissary", et al.)

Almost all Bajorans followed the faith and the Bajoran religion influenced all of Bajoran society. For instance, in 2370, a Vedek, Sloi, was also director of the government Council on Ecological Controls. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)

Any alternate interpretation of the relationship between the Bajorans and Prophets was met with hostilities and quickly quashed by the religious authorities. This strong enforcement of the religion kept Bajorans united, but had the more sinister background of crushing anyone with an alternative take on the Bajoran's relationship with the Prophets, such as Ohalu who realised the Prophets were aliens rather than gods and saw the Bajorans and Prophets more as equals, learning from each other. (DS9 novel: Avatar, Book One)

The Prodigal was a significant figure in the religion and was the namesake of one of Bajor's moon, Baraddo. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky; ST - The Fall novel: Revelation and Dust)
