Via Communitas, commonly called the Path of Community or Tariq el-Umma in Muslim lands, is a Path of Road of Humanity found in Dark Ages: Vampire. Followers of the Path of Community are called the Civilised.

The Civilised are more focused on the community as a whole, rather than individuals. They seldom strive to exalt themselves, and when they do it is usually as a means to benefit the community at large. It is more common in places with large populations, especially in Muslim lands.

The Path of Community is common among Cainites who are pious Christians, yet follow the Road of Humanity instead of Road of Heaven ("the greater good" being God).
