The central religious theme is, of course, hypocrisy. Tartruffe is obviously the main culprit, but others seem to be eager to be deceived by him (Orgon, most notably). Hypocrisy is extremely important in the four Canonical Gospels, where Jesus has many hostile encounters with the religious leaders of his time, the Pharisees.
