A monomythic society, the Khajiit are educated in their beliefs by the figures within their communities known as "Clan Mothers", whose duty it is to disseminate the cultural myths among their kind, and who maintain autonomy from the Mane and the disparate tribal leaders.{{ref|name=WOCMA}}
 
The Khajiiti pantheon encompasses myriad [[Lore:Aedra|Aedric]] and [[Lore:Daedric Princes|Daedric]] gods,{{ref|name=CHAYQ|{{Cite Book|Chamberlain Haskill Answers Your Questions}}}} which are recognized as spirits,{{ref|name=ESOSB|[[Online:Antiquity Furnishings#Shrine of Boethra|Shrine of Boethra]] furnishing codex from [[ON:Online|ESO]]}} a fraction of which are [[Lore:Khajiit#Khajiiti Pantheon|detailed below]]. Various gods rose and fell out of prominence over the eras due to events and cultural changes. Indeed, after the unification of Anequina and Pellitine into one kingdom, and the event known as the Riddle'Thar Epiphany, the Riddle'Thar cult would rise and scrub many of these spirits from the Khajiit pantheon,{{ref|name=ESOSB}} and those that refused to follow the new edicts of the Ephiphany faced persecution.{{ref|name=ESOClawStrike|[[Online:Claw's Strike|Claw's Strike]] Loading Screen Text}}
 
Prior to the Riddle'Thar replacing the ancient theology of the Khajiit, [[Lore:Spirits of Amun-dro|ancient texts]] were written by Amun-dro, the Silent Priest, who categorized the spirits as Sky, Worldly, Wandering, or Adversarial Spirits. Some that hold the modern religious beliefs of the Riddle'Thar consider these writings a blasphemy due to their deference and respect for darker spirits, such as suggesting Azurah walked the realm of Hermorah as a friend. Additionally, they were considered dangerous due to the fact that they were created during the time that Khajiit held scattered beliefs, with sixteen different faiths competing against each other, that "tumbled and scratched their way through history, competing for the souls of all Khajiit." However, this did not stop Khajiit from seeking out the knowledge of the ancient beliefs that had been displaced.{{ref|name=ESOESA|{{Cite Book|Epistle on the Spirits of Amun-dro}}}}
