Ethnoreligious group

An ethnoreligious group (or an ethno-religious group), or simply an ethnoreligion, is a grouping of people who are unified by a common religious and ethnic background.[1]

Furthermore, the term ethno-religious group, along with ethno-regional and ethno-linguistic groups, is a sub-category of ethnicity and is used as evidence of belief in a common culture and ancestry.[2]

In a narrower sense, they refer to groups whose religious and ethnic traditions are historically linked.[3]
