When the Quorum debates whether or not to grant Baltar's cult religious freedom, delegate Reza Chronides points out that their practices are not too different from Mithraists (TRS: "Escape Velocity").
- Mithraism was a religion practiced in the Roman Empire in the 1st to 4th centuries CE. It was an initiatory order that practiced its rites in natural caves or buildings resembling caves. Having a lot of similarities to early Christianity in certain areas, Mithraism was wide-spread throughout the empire, before Christianity became the official state religion and paganism was declared illegal by Theodosius I.
