The Apostle is a religious unit in Civilization VI.

Game Info Edit

Apostles are more expensive than Missionaries, but more versatile: in addition to Spreading Religion, they can engage in Theological Combat, Evangelize new beliefs, or Launch an Inquisition.

A city must have a Temple (or Stave Church) constructed in order to recruit Apostles.

An Apostle may only be bought with Civ6 24x faith Faith and its cost increases for each unit built.

May heal at a Holy Site or tiles adjacent to it.

Historical Context Edit

An “apostle” (from Greek, meaning “one who is sent away”) is a messenger and ambassador for the chosen deity of a given religion in an attempt to convert the faithless. In Christianity, where the concept is most prevalent, the Twelve were mere disciples before scattering out as ordered by the resurrected Christ to spread his “Word.” For Islam, an apostle is a prophet, specifically one sent to teach Allah’s truth: Ibrahim (Abraham in the Hebrew bible), Musa (Moses), Dawud (David), Isa (Jesus), and of course Mohammed. These days some churches simply appoint their own apostles; among the Latter-day Saints, for instance, an Apostle is a member of the priesthood with high authority, and in the Bahá’í faith the apostles were designated as such by Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian.
