Priests and priestesses aren't a common subject when it comes to manga, but they do show up - and when they do, they can be fascinating additions to any story. This list will help you find priest manga that either centers on priests and priestesses, or has them as prominent characters. 

Some manga priests are modeled after Christian clergy members - those can be found in anime like Trinity Blood and Maria†Holic. Others focus on priests from Japanese religions like Shinto - a great example is Shrine of the Morning Mist. Sometimes, these characters actually perform their religious rites, while at other times it's more of an aesthetic choice.
