What is the target of satire in Twain’s depiction of the king and the duke’s first con job at the religious revival? Is there possibly more than one target?

I think self-righteous and religious zealots are the targets of the King and Duke's shenanigans. They claim to be morally superior yet fall for these too charlatans.
