The Ministry of Rites is a ministry of the Imperial Republic of Shireroth. Before its formation under the Third Wythe Cabinet religious affairs were mostly handled by the Imperial Court.

However, by the early 18th century, the Children of Mors had come to dominate the Cedrist Faith. A call for more unity was made, but ran into resistance from the smaller cults who feared they would lose their autonomy. As solution to the problem and to answer the fears of the smaller religious groups, it was decided to create the Ministry headed by Kian Aiomide Shahnaz, Princess of Shireroth. The new minister coordinated a series of reforms that once again enabled the Mango Throne to exercise limited control over the sects. The Council of Negrixnaht followed in 1703 AN to coordinate in purging certain deities whose cults had either fallen into complete obscurity. From 1707 AN, the ministry was also faced with the difficult task of integrating the Eastern and Batavian churches into the Imperial Republic's way of thinking.
