  1. SPERATE IN EO OMNI TEMPORE HOPE IN THE LORD FOREVER 8th of sun's smile 1669 DECREED BY: His Holiness JUDE I, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD. It is with great joy that We, the High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, with full authority from the Exalted Throne, decree by right as granted by my predecessors by Exalted Owyn, commanded by GOD himself, that the interdict upon the Dual Monarchy of Hanseti-Ruska is hereby voided. All excommunications and anathemas are hereby null and void and all ordained ministers may perform the sacraments, be it the sacrament of the Word, Matrimony, Consecration, Ordination, Confession etc etc. In exchange the Dual Monarchy of Hanseti-Ruska hereby acknowledges the supreme authority of His Holiness JUDE I in religious affairs as well as issues an apology for the persecution of the Order of Blessed Catherine and the veterans of the Order of Saint Lucien for any harm given upon their persons. Signed: His Holiness JUDE I, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD. His Majesty of Hanseti and Ruska SIGMAR I, Grand Hetman of the Army, Prince of Dules, Lahy, Sorbesborg and Slesvik, Regent of Pruvia, Grand Duke of Vanderfell, Duke of Akovia, Krajia and Aldersburg, Margrave of Rothswald, Count of Karikhov, Baranya, Kavat, Karovia, Torun, and Kaunas, Viscount of Alamar, Baron of Vsenk, Valwyk, Rostig, Esenstadt, Krepost and Kralta, Lord of the Westfolk, Lord of Markev, Protector of the Highlanders, etcetera
  2. PONTIFICIS EXCOMMUNICATIONEM EXCOMMUNICATION WRIT: BROOS WELLIS AND SABO GRADIC Addressed to the Faithful of Adria and all Faithful Canonists throughout the Realm 16th of Horen's Welcome, 1669 His Holiness JUDE I, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth decree… Brethren in Almighty GOD, For hundreds of years, the Holy Canonist Faith has persisted in the face of severe persecutions, long-lasting heresies, major schisms, and assault from malevolent spirits who seek the destruction of truth in this realm. One such attempted schism of the Holy Mother Church in respect to her Episcopal Appointments and Ordination of her Clergy has risen its head of corruption within the Duchy of Adria, at the hands of two city councilors of Belvitz. These men, Broos Willis and Sabo Gradic being the City Maer and City Clerk respectively, have put forth a heretical act, known as ‘The Belvitz Church Act of 1669’ wherein they usurp the Holy Appointment of the Bishop of their Diocese by the High Pontiff, and instead vest it within the hands of the laity. The full list of sins committed by these men are hereby enclosed within, to encompass the breadth and depth of their transgressions against the Holy Mother Church: The pair are perpetrators of Lay Investiture as they have attempted to undermine the Most Holy Canonist Church in creating ‘pseudo-bishops’ in the form of ‘Diocesan Vicars’ lacking all but spiritual authority, The pair came to their trial with the intention of ‘making deals’ with regard to ecclesiastical appointments and church structure, in attempt to alter the True Faith of GOD for their own benefit, The pair refused to rescind their heretical Belvitz Church Act of 1669, insisting that a deal must be wagered in order for it to be cast aside instead of repenting for their transgressions, The pair sought to bribe the College of Bishops and Pontificate at their own trial stating that it was in the best interest of the Church to side with them for ‘two thousand mina’ per annum, The pair orchestrated a false Mass by a non-froked ‘Deacon’ who they intended to raise up as the ecclesiastical administrative head of the settlement of Belvitz, Therefore: We, the Pontificate and the Most Holy College of Bishops, therefore declare that these men shall be branded EXCOMMUNICATE and ANATHEMA. They are hereby spiritually amputated from the Holy Canonist Church and the Society of all Canonists. They shall be shunned and evicted from any and all settlements who claim union with the Holy Mother Church of the Canon. SANCTI APOSTOLI EVARISTUS ET CLEMENS: DE QUORUM POTESTATE ET AUCTORITATE CONFIDIMUS, IPSI INTERCEDANT PRO NOBIS AD DOMINUM. ☩ IN NOMINE PATRIS, et Horenus, et Exaltus Honorem. Amen. REJOICE! GOD’S FAITHFUL TOIL NO LONGER. Sunt etiamnum fidelium
  3. CUM CIRCA ELEVATIONE PASTORIBUS PONTIFICAL EXHORTATION: REGARDING THE ELEVATION OF SHEPHERDS Addressed to the Faithful of Adria and all Faithful Canonists throughout the Realm 21st of The First Seed, 1669 His Holiness JUDE I, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth decree… Brethren in Almighty GOD, For hundreds of years, the Holy Canonist Faith has persisted in the face of severe persecutions, long-lasting heresies, major schisms, and assault from malevolent spirits who seek the destruction of truth in this realm. Be well assured dear children that the fruit of the tree of virtue, the Faith which the Holy Canonist Church has shepherded for these many years, shall not rot. Instead, with the promulgation of this text, let it triumph. Let schism and usurpation be quelled. Let future attempts to undermine the Divine Ordainment of the Canonist Church be shut down through the clear authority of the Holy Scrolls and Sacred Tradition of Holy Mother Church. Brethren in GOD, it is known to us as Faithful Canonists and devout attendants to the Holy Scrolls - the Most Exalted Canon - that the Prophet Owyn, whom the High Pontiff is the successor, established the first hierarchy of the Holy Church of GOD through his ordination of the brothers Saint Evaristus and Saint Clement. The Exalted Prophet Owyn, to whom our veneration is well-placed, entrusted the pair as shepherds to humanity in the form of Episcopates. This Great Commission by the Prophet to Sts. Evaristus and Clement is where the entire office of the episcopacy can be traced, an office that has persisted since the foundations of our Faith. Recently, it has come to the attention of myself that an Investiture Crisis is in the works which would utterly undermine the authority of the Successor of the Exalted in setting shepards over Humanity. In turn, this would lead many astray from the Apostolic Succession of Holy Mother Church as those elevated to administrative ranks relating to the clergy can only attain their power by he who derives his power from GOD to do so, the High Pontiff - as Inheritor of the Spiritual Authority of the Exalted. Therefore, let it be known that as of the solemn promulgation of this text, all those who toy with the flirtation of - or seek the elevation of directly - an administrative figure [1] outside of the episcopacy of equal status and duty [2] or within a quasi-episcopacy ordained and enthroned by one with no Apostolic Jurisdiction shall be rightly chastised and if necessary, rightfully amputated from the Communion of Holy Mother Church and the society of all Canonists. There will come a time when the Great Enemy of Humanity, and all those under GOD, shall emerge from the chains and shadows that have kept him shackled. There will come a time when the merciful men and women of Terra will be slain and overtaken by the yolk of sin and the physical manifestation of it. At this time, a false priesthood will rise and lead those who cling to it to perdition. Look not away from the Light of GOD, the Holy Canonist Church - for in placing one’s spiritual inheritance in the trust of any wordly organization outside of the Canonist Church, one is detaching themselves from the foundation established by GOD to keep them free from the yolk of the Defiler. My dear children, there will come a time when all hope is lost and the destruction of all we know as a people is before us, but our Faith shall never end. This Faith which has lasted since the inception of the Human race shall not falter. There are yet faithful even when those who are devout are assailed by the many tribulations to come, there will see be preachers, there will still be congregants, and there will still be great rulers who will triumph through their Faith in GOD and HIS Church. All of our enemies shall be defeated by our Faith, for our Faith is a piercing blade in the face of the enemies of GOD. Therefore, all of you who harken onto the commandment of GOD and seek to live a life of purity, virtue, and zealousness I humbly entreat you- take heed to the words of your Pontiff and Most Holy College of Bishops. May Almighty GOD free you from the confines of lesser-thinking men in order for you to grasp the Sacred Theology here displayed. May HE who commissioned the Holy Scrolls intercede for us and enlighten us with great wisdom both now and forever. LORD, Lead us to an increase in our understanding of YOUR will. Amen. SANCTI APOSTOLI EVARISTUS ET CLEMENS: DE QUORUM POTESTATE ET AUCTORITATE CONFIDIMUS, IPSI INTERCEDANT PRO NOBIS AD DOMINUM. ☩ IN NOMINE PATRIS, et Horenus, et Exaltus Honorem. Amen. REJOICE!

  5. PRIMA SACERDOTALEM CENSUS RHODESINSIS FIRST SACERDOTAL CENSUS OF RHODESIA 16th of Sun's Smile, 1668 His Holiness JUDE I, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth decree… In an effort to account for the various clergymen and monastics of all sorts who have consecrated their lives to service of GOD this First Sacerdotal Census of Rhodesia has been issued.

Whilst paragons of virtues have graced the realm since ancient times, it was only under the High Pontiff Marcus I where a canonization process was established, to deliberate those beautified and saintly. However, with the great heathen sack of the Liberian Pontificate, the canon list of the sainthoods had been lost. It was under only High Pontiff Everard where a tradition of universally recognized sainthoods were restored. Above the saints are, the four Exalted are those foretold in the Holy Scrolls, known formerly as the Divine, whom would restore humanity in this life and beyond. Only the exalted have ever held full dialogue with the Creator, and all have performed countless miracles and acts of greatness, standing aside the Creator in the Seventh Sky. All these canonized figures are not to be worshiped, but revered, whether for their fulfillment of the Creator’s prophecies, or for their exceptional degree of holiness. They may be asked to pray for us as they act in intercession, close to the Creator himself.

  12. TERTIO TAURUM AUREUS SANCTUS RHODESINSIS THIRD GOLDEN BULL OF RHODESIA 5th of Snow's Maiden, 1667 His Holiness JUDE I, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth decree… TABLE OF CONTENTS: SECTION I - DIOCESAN RECONSTRUCTION SECTION II - CURIA SECTION III - COLLEGE OF BISHOPS SECTION IV - CHURCH RECONSTRUCTION SECTION V - MONASTIC REFORM SECTION VI - SACREDOTAL CENSUS SECTION VII - UNIVERSITY OF EX. ST. SIEGMUND SECTION VIII - ORDINATION REFORM SECTION IX - ANNULMENT SECTION X - FRATRES MISSUS SECTION XI - THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE EXALTED THRONE SECTION XII - BEATIFICATION SECTION XIII - JUBILEE AND HOLY YEAR SECTION XIV - EREMITA REDUCUNTUR SECTION XV - MAGIC SECTION I - DIOCESAN RECONSTRUCTION It is known to His Holiness that the Church in its current state is too encumbered by an overinflated bureaucracy. For the purpose of consolidating ecclesiastical provinces, the following reforms have been made in the dioceses of the Holy Mother Church. THE METROPOLITANATE OF RHODESIA - Encompassing the Dual Kingdoms of Renatus and Marna, their respective lands and minor vassals, the Duchy of Adria, the settlement of Belvitz, the Apostolic Barony of Saint Judeburg-upon-the-Baltas, the settlements along the crossroads, the Village of Dunshire, and the ruined Temple of Horen within the lands of Malin’s Descendants. Administered by HIS HOLINESS, JUDE I, as Metropolitan & HIS EMINENCE, ROBERT ROVIN as Auxiliary Archbishop. THE ARCHDIOCESE OF BALTAS - Encompassing the County of Göthaland, it’s vassals and respective lands, the Kingdom of Santegia and its respective lands and vassals, the proclaimed Duchy of Rivia and its respective lands, and the entity of Haense and its lands. Administered by HIS EMINENCE, YURII as Archbishop. SECTION II - CURIAL & SYNODAL DISBANDMENT Out of necessity for the efficacious governance of the Most Holy Canonist Church, the Church finds that the dead organs of the Curia and Synod are unneeded. In a spirit of reform and revitalization within the Church, a new model of ecclesiastical governance has been confirmed and thus the two previous branches are severed and destroyed. Any Curial or Synodal positions held by any souls are now considered null and non-existant. SECTION III - COLLEGE OF BISHOPS  With the disbandment of the Synod and Curia of the Canonist Church a new model of Church governance has been established. The College of Bishops shall be established to consist of a diarchy of Episcopates along with the High Pontiff as the lead presiding member. The College shall retain all the rights, powers, and duties of the synod and curia rightly divided by the High Pontiff. The College of Bishops shall receive the following appointments. DIARCH OF THE CANON; HIS EMINENCE, YURRI OF HAENSE DIARCH OF THE CANON; HIS EMINENCE, ROBERT ROVIN The Diarchy is commissioned with the governance of the Church through the will of HIS HOLINESS, JUDE I SECTION IV - CHURCH RECONSTRUCTION In an effort to cull the obese weight of the Church: all Metropolitans, Archbishops, Bishops and other episcopal title holders of the Holy Canonist Church are demoted to the title of Priest. This does not apply to the Metropolitanate of Rhodesia, currently under His Holiness, Jude I and Archbishop Robert Rovin, and the Archdiocese of Baltas encompassing Heansae, Gothaland, and Santegia, administered by Archbishop Yurii. On publication of this document, let it also be known that the titles and powers of the Acolytes and Deacons shall be merged into the office of Neophyte in order to reform the educational structure of clerics. Neophytes, who are in training to become Priests of the Church, are committed to studying the Sacred Ecclesiology and Theology of the Church. In order to encourage more interaction between Priests and lay faithful in an environment conducive to mutual interaction and benefit, the following is enacted: All Cathedrals that currently exist outside the Seat of the High Pontiff shall be deconstructed and reduced. In order for Churches to be utilized by the public once more, they must be scaled down and adjusted to fit the population they service. Therefore, let it be known that Churches can not exceed more than two hundred seating spaces. In order to work in continuity with the prescriptions of the elders before us, and to condemn the current laxity within our places of worship, religious iconography must once again be displayed within our Churches. Along with them, so too should relics and other holy objects be contained as tools of spiritual significance for the lay faithful. SECTION V - MONASTIC REFORM The monastic hierarchy of the Church including the roles of Hegumen, Abbot, Abbess, Prior, Prioress, Friar, Monk, Nun, and all others tonsured or designated into the monastics ranks shall be reduced to the following: - Monk, for those tonsured or designated into the monastics ranks and are male. - Nun, for those tonsured or designated into the monastics ranks and are female. All those currently occupying monastic titles other than Monk or Nun shall be reduced to said titles through their completion of and acceptance through the Sacredotal Census. This excludes Abbess Judith Ann of Judzcya who will govern all Nuns within the Abbey of Judzcya. Therefore, all Monasteries, Priories, Abbeys, Convents, Nunneries, and all other monastic places of communal living within the Church shall be deconsecrated and deconstructed excluding the Abbey of Judzcya. All monastics who are approved through the Index Ecclesia shall report to the Abbey of Judzcya effective immediately upon their acceptance. SECTION VI - SACREDOTAL CENSUS Let it be known that as of the date here transcribed within this Third Golden Bull of Rhodesia that a Sacredotal Census has been called. This census will consist of all of the clergy of the Most Holy Canonist Church. Following the collection of names, which will persist for one year, those clerics who neglected to list their name shall be defrocked ipso facto. Those clerics who included their names, and are held in good standing with Holy Mother Church, shall be included on the official roster of the clergy which shall be published. This roster shall be known as the Index Ecclesia. In order to maintain a clear roster of churchmen as time progresses, following the enthronement of a High Pontiff a Sacredotal Census shall be conducted and a new Index Ecclesia shall be drafted in perpetuity. SECTION VII - UNIVERSITY OF EX. ST. SIEGMUND It is by this sovereign Pontifical decree that the University of the Ex. St. Siegmund shall be reformed. This age old institution will return once more for the education of Neophytes within the Holy Canonist Church. The new-revised Ecclesiastical Curriculum of the Rhodesian Council shall be enforced therein. The grounds for this institution are currently under deliberation and construction, this seminary will foster a standardized and well-educated clergy. SECTION VIII - ORDINATION REFORM Since the time following the retirement of High Pontiff Sixtus IV, clerical education has been neglected substantially by the stewards of the Holy Canonist Church. In an effort to restore the clerical education that had existed prior to the aforementioned neglect, the following rules and mandates have been enacted: While in Seminary, Acolytes will be required to complete the Standard Clerical Examination written and corrected at the Rhodesian Council. After an Acolyte has been raised up to the position of Deacon, they are required to submit a Thesis pertaining to some aspect of the Church or Canonism in general. Clergymen will once again take the Sacred Oath of Ordination into the Canonist Church at the time they are to become Priests, a practice rooted in the tradition of the early Church. Oath of Ordination: “I swear to be true to the Church, GOD and His realm, to the Archons of our faith, and most bindingly to the Head of the Faith, and not to maintain silence about any evil that I may know or have heard or may hear which is being contemplated against the Church, its realms, the clergymen or the Head of the Faith. I swear also not to eat or drink with heretics, apostates or sinners, and not to have anything in common with them. I shall obey the orders of my High Pontiff and adhere to the tenets of our faith without perversion. On this I kiss the cross.” SECTION IX - ANNULMENT Due to an investigation of sacramental fulfillment brought about by Catherine and Antonius Horen, this solemn declaration has been given: On the matter of the Union of Constantine and Catherine Horen and the efficaciousness of their marriage sacrament: The grounds for this declaration have been substantiated through the testimony of Catherine as well as one Antonius Horen. After some deliberation the Pontificate and Synod have deemed the union incomplete on the grounds of Nullam Consummationem and Coactus Unio. Accordingly, we the Pontificate, by the authority of our Apostolic Succession as Vicar of GOD and Keeper of the Testaments, hereby declare that the sacred Union performed to certify the holy matrimony of Catherine and Constantine Horen to be annulled and the circumstances herein granted to their certification be hereby rescinded from all sacramental investiture. SECTION X - FRATRES MISSUS Due to many circumstances the Holy Orders of the Canonist Church, those of Saint Lucien and Saint Everard, are henceforth disbanded. Their oaths are declared nulled and void by the Vicar of GOD and their hierarchies are dissolved. Remaining members of these two orders are invited to join the Brotherhood of the Exalted Throne. The Holy Order of Saint Lucien shall remain dormant in the aisles of Atlas until, if need be due to some sort of heretical uprising or plight of the forces of darkness, they are required to venture back to save Humanity from the wickedness of the Defiler. SECTION XI - THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE EXALTED THRONE With the disbandment of the previous Church Militant, the Church deems it wise to create a united order for the defense of the Faith. The Apostolic Brotherhood of the Exalted Throne is therefore established with full support from the Vicar of GOD. This band of armed monastics are devoted to Chastity, Poverty and spreading the word of GOD to all corners of Axios, they’re currently headed by Holy Ser Walter Moore. SECTION XII - BEATIFICATION We, through the Authority of the Exalted throne, find that the Bishop & Hieroschema, Vladimir, known as the Golden-handed, is within the succour of the Blessed. His cult and reverence are henceforth allowed and Icons and other images bearing his likeness have been commissioned. Vladimir was a man of Ruskan tradition, a venerated of Saint Theodosius. Vladimir, during his life assisted the Church in her Scholastic needs, writing, at the end of his life, his greatest work: "Thesis on Salvation". Vladimir, after ending his episcopacy, retired to a small Skete near the Hansaetic capital in Axios. Therein Vladimir took on a few students, most notable of whom was Berdiyeslev, who would later rise to the Episcopacy himself. In his twilight years, it is reported that he was able to speak with birds who carried the will of the Skies with them. SECTION XIII - JUBILEE AND HOLY YEAR In celebration of the our blessed flock, We, the Most Holy Canonist Church, declare the Year of the Faithful. During the entirety of the year (1667-1668) the Church shall host many celebrations to imbue and grant the Grace of GOD upon the faithful. Hymn of the Year of the Faithful: Sunt fidelis adhuc, Pater! Sunt fidelis adhuc, Pater! Sunt fidelis adhuc, Pater! Give thanks to the Father who delivered His Word onto us! There are yet Faithful! He leads His people throughout history! There are yet Faithful! His Light inspires us to Faith! There are yet Faithful! Sunt fidelis adhuc, Pater! Sunt fidelis adhuc, Pater! Sunt fidelis adhuc, Pater! SECTION XIV - EREMITA REDUCTEUR Pursuant onto the publication of this document, for the simplified organization of the Holy Mother Church, the following religious orders shall be declared vacant and dormant: Hubertine Order of Friars is to be declared vacant. If there comes a time where heretical views of the Most Holy Canonist Faith come out from hiding the Order will once again called into the light to purge that which contradicts with the Exalted Testaments. The Sisterhood of Blessed Catherine is to be declared vacant. If there is a time in which the clerical census' reflect a growth in vocations to the religious life of women the Sisterhood will once again be established. SECTION XV - MAGIC It is clear in the Scroll of Spirit that the Mage seeks power and ambition, and, it is the duty of Mother Church to correct her children’s vices. However, the mage’s ambition is too great. By refusing to partake in the Hermetic License, the mage, has shown that it is unwilling to submit to Mother Church’s authority, which is given by GOD himself. Thus, the vice of magic is deemed too much for one soul to bear. The Church declares that none of her children should learn nor practice the voidal arts. If one is found practicing or teaching the arts of the void, and those of any form of hermeticism, let it be known that they are accursed and anathema. In doing so, they have rendered their judgement upon the soil of Terra and shall be put to death. SANCTI APOSTOLI EVARISTUS ET CLEMENS: DE QUORUM POTESTATE ET AUCTORITATE CONFIDIMUS, IPSI INTERCEDANT PRO NOBIS AD DOMINUM. ☩ IN NOMINE PATRIS, et Horenus, et Exaltus Honorem. Amen. REJOICE! GOD’S FAITHFUL TOIL NO LONGER. Sunt etiamnum fidelium

THE DIOCESE OF THE BALTAS - Encompassing the County of Göthaland, it’s vassals, it’s respective lands, and the previous Archdiocese of Jorenus. Administered by HIS EXCELLENCY, BERDISLEYEV as Bishop. THE HOLY SEE OF SAINT JUDEBURG - Encompassing the Holy See of Saint Judeburg-upon-the-Baltas and the ruined Temple of Horen within the lands of Malin’s Descendants: Administered by HIS HOLINESS, JUDE I THE ARCHDIOCESE OF RHODESIA - Encompassing the Dual Kingdoms of Renatus and Marna, and their respective lands. Administered by HIS HOLINESS, JUDE I & HIS GRACE, BROTHER ROBERT, OSL as Coadjutor Bishop THE DIOCESE OF SAN ADRIAN - Encompassing the Kingdom of Santegia and its respective lands. Administered by THE RIGHT REVEREND, HERMAN OF VALAAM THE DIOCESE OF VILLAVIA - Encompassing the Duchy of Adria, the settlement of Belvitz, the Gottlesfont Priory, and the settlements along the crossroads. Administered by HIS EXCELLENCY, YURII SECTION II - DIOCESAN DETHRONEMENT The following diocese have been dethroned of their bishop(s) and have been dissolved due to a state of diaspora and derecognition in their jurisdiction. The following diocese(s) may be reformed in the future if a revival of their ethnic population or territorial location ensues. THE ARCHDIOCESE OF JORENUS - Encompassing the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, and its respective lands. DETHRONED - DISSOLVED -Sede vacante THE ARCHDIOCESE OF CURON- Encompassing the city of Cyrilsberg, and its respective lands. DETHRONED - DISSOLVED -Sede vacante SECTION III - CURIAL APPOINTMENTS In order to renew and strengthen the governance of the Most Holy Canonist Church, a new appointment has been made and to bring about the glory of GOD on this Plane. HEGUMEN OF ALL MONASTICS - THE RIGHT REVEREND, HERMAN OF VALAAM SECTION IV - EXCOMMUNICATION With the current filial disagreements between the Holy See and it’s errant and unruly children of Hansae, the Church deems it necessary to place these persons under interdict: JACK AMADOR - It is not the place nor the job of a retired High Pontiff to question nor deny the authority of the Vicar of GOD. Thusly: through the virtue of Apostolic Succession, Jack Amador, is placed under excommunication and branded ANATHEMA. Furthermore he is hereby defrocked, cast out to be trampled upon. Any sacrament given henceforth by him is henceforth deemed invalid. He is no longer to be known as Clement III but shall return to his baptismal name of Jack. ANSELM GERHARD - Through his blatant rejection of Canonist purity in regard to his defense of the position that the Holy Canonist Church is tainted - as well as his flawed conviction that pagans that show injury to the faith are of the same stock as those who respect it: Anselm has branded himself ANATHEMA. In accordance with these persons being excommunicated, the whole of the Kingdom of Hansae is also declared to be under interdict; any ordained clerics found to be performing any sacrament within the Kingdom are therefore excommunicated, ipso facto. - Aside from these persons, it has been the long due duty of the Holy Mother Church to condemn those who falsify the word of GOD and promulgate false scriptures marketing them as Canon. In response to this, the Holy Mother Church does act in this regard: To officially recognize that the soul of JACOB CHAPEL has been damned to the outer darkness that was made for him and all the reprobate who have crafted false scriptures. SECTION V - MILITANT ACTION Just as Exalted Owyn, peace upon his name, was granted penance by the LORD through Holy War, so do the men of Renatus and all the faithful flock who fight against Norland & Haense and their reprobate allies receive holy penance. The Church and Her Magisterium declare a Crusade upon Norland & Haense and her allies for the following crimes: - The slaughtering of the Sisters of Blessed Catherine, - The slaughtering of the envoy sent to Norland to convert the heathenous populace, - The continuing raids upon the Holy See, - Barbanovic soldiers making attempts on the life of His Holiness, Any man, be they saint or sinner shall receive an INDULGENCE when partaking in Holy War against Norland and their minions. SECTION VI - PURITY IN FAITH It is clear through the Holy Texts that Humanity is the chosen race. GOD gave Humans the command to bear the weight of His priesthood, and it is we, Humans, who walk upon the higher planes of the Seven Skies. The Church therefore deems it that to be Human is to be Chosen and whilst the gentiles are not wholly barred from Salvation they are to follow the Admonishments of Exalted Owyn and to behave like Humans. I. For an elf to be admitted to the faith said elf must: snip their ears, abandon their faith in the aspects, receive the sacraments of the Church, dress modestly, live within proper human society and speak in proper common, control their lust with prayer and other penance, and other human languages. If said elf is of dark elven descent they must bleach their skin. II. For an orc to be admitted to the faith said orc must: snip their tusks, abandon their faith in the spirits, receive the sacraments of the Church, dress modestly, live within proper human society, speak in proper common and other human languages, control their bloodlust through fasting and prayer, and bleach their skin into a proper hue. III. For a dwed to be admitted to the faith said dwarf must: trim their hair and beard to a proper length, abandon their faith in the Brathmordakin, receive the sacraments of the Church, speak proper human common and other human languages and control their greed with prayer and penance. Furthermore races like the orcs are excluded from the priesthood for their unceremonial and brutish nature that undermines the sacred rituals required to honour and praise GOD. All races not of the descent from the First Coupling are known to be Bestial Races. These races are deemed to be mere animals and, be they tamed or killed, cannot incur sin upon ones immortal soul. The Bestial Races being known to us by name of Kha, and Hou-zi, among the plethora of Bestials. On the matter of Halflings: the Church deems them to be a subsect of Humanity. Whilst their customs are mainly foreign to us there are no physiological differences besides shorter stature and greater gluttony. Furthermore they are not mentioned within the Scrolls as one of the brothers of the First Coupling, but neither are they of a beastial form, resembling humans much more than any other race. Additionally nothing in their folklore or common folklore suggests being created by disobedient Aengodaemons, like the kha race.

  15. Pontifical Encyclical: Filiorum Dei To the priests, bishops, monastics, and all the lay faithful. 12th of the Amber Cold, 1658 His Holiness JUDE I, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia and the Crowlands, Archbishop of Jorenus, Lotharum, Aleksandria, Phillipus, Enochas, Visigia and Erochland, Prince-Bishop of St. Thomas, Savoy, Mont St. Humbert, Holofernes, Johannesburg, Esheveurd, Luciensport, Huss, and Dibley, Prince-Abbot of Laureh’lin and Hariam, Abbot of Annsden, Bishop of Godfreo, Fernandus, the Westerweald, Versace, Mardon, Metz, and Carace, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Missionary to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth decree... Brethren in GOD, Your Holy Father shares his empathy to the discord and renunciation of the Peace and Truce of GOD instituted among humanity. Let it be stated that the Holy Canonist Church, by virtue of her authority through the Testaments of the Exalted reaffirms and profoundly acknowledges the trueness and virtuous disposition of the Farfolk people in their pursuits to holiness and justice in the holy light of the Godhead. Moreover, the Canonist Church urges its faithful throughout the realm of Atlas to conduct a manner of prudence, mercy, and charity that we might be saint-like models among mortals, exercising our good will and virtuous consciences in our dialogue with those of the Farfolk and that of many in other faiths whoso earnestly seek collegiality and collaboration as children of GOD. As Vicar of GOD and Keeper of the Exalted’s Testaments, I compel the faithful to partake in this mandate, consoling ourselves in the redeemable graces bound to ourselves at baptism to seek the essence of holiness in others. We therefore, by our Apostolic Authority, duly impart our benediction in the benevolence of GOD and the graces in the Seven Skies to the initiation of reconciliation betwixt the relations between our most august faith and that of the aforementioned. Sunt etiamnum fidelium In the Name of Allah the Merciful the Magnificent and most Powerful, Brothers And Mumin of Al’Imam Rashidun, And revered Canonist sons of Horen, I write today with a clear and deliberate intent to address you equally as brothers: that is certainly what we are, because we are members of the same human family, as we are all Servants of the one and only all mighty. Our efforts, despite miscommunications, and misunderstandings, come from GOD, and the undeniable truths made indelible in each of our hearts. And thus we are inarguably linked in this separate yet unifying faith and belief in the same GOD, he who created us and he who will choose when to take us, he who we are ever trying to reach through prayer, and faith, through the proselytization, and reverence of his infallible law, and through submission to his design, he for whom we will ever be slaves. The blood of Horen runs through our veins just the same as yours, truly we are all humans, despite variation, under him we share history, culture, ideals, and most importantly for all hope for a better world, and a brighter future. It is as long has been said, the faith of the canon, and the Imam Rashidun are as two beams of light from the same source. In this Canonists and those who follow al Imam Rashidun find their common ground, and so we humble servants of his in the clergy of al Imam Rashidun hereby declare, all though we are not beholden unto him, that the High Pontiff Jude I, every Pontiff that preceded him hitherto, and every Pontiff to proceed his excellency shall be recognized as a servant of GOD, and revered for the work he does in spreading faith in the one true creator. Moreover, let it be known that all Canonists lay faithful and clergy alike are subject to the same protection as any member of Imam Rashidun, as it always has been, and any of the faith who raise a hand against them shall be treated as if they had sinned against their own, for afterall, we are all slaves onto him, we are the children of GOD.
