Paragons of the Three Divinities

Paragons of the Three Divinities


Oldest current religion: Paragons of the Three Divinities.

Three Sects, one per Paragon.

Sect of the Communion: Represents the communion between mortals and the Paragons. The priests and keepers of doctrine of the faith. They are the organized structure of the church. These are male only members of the faith, chosen/trained for their role. The Sect of the Communion is presided over by Reverend Patre Piero Dolfin.

Sect of the Devotion: These are spiritual lay leaders of the faith that work closely with the faithful. They represent a personal spiritualism and a connection with the Paragons. They include healers, fasters, personal prayer, guidance and devotion to the faith. These are female only members of the faith. The Sect of the Devotion is presided over by Reverend Matre Nezetta Damiani.

Sect of the Exoneration: This sect oversees absolution of sin and repentance. They take a far more personal approach between people and faith, seeing it as their duty to seek out absolution of sin and to enforce repentance. Males and females constitute the hierarchy of this sect of the faith. Most Reverend Matre Ippolita della Garzone presides over the Sect of Exoneration and is currently chief among the Reverends of the Paragons of the Three Divinities.


Each Sect is over seen by a Reverend Matre or Patre, depending on sect. Among these three one generally is accepted as Most Reverend and is the true leader of the faith, or the closest to the Divinities while the three work in unison as a triumvirate to govern the church of the Divinities, known as the Paragon State.

Beneath the Reverends are the Curates. A Curate is assigned per the Reverends to any given state of faithful parsonages representing a Centum, a hundred parsonages in a given region. While parsonages may hold a Centum with fewer numbers of Paragon holdings in more dispersed areas, the Curate of such a Centum holds less rights of vote within the Covenant of Curates. The Covenant meets twice annually to address matters of the Paragon State under direction of the Triumvirate.

Parsonage: a group of faithful under one chapel/church, lead by a Parson. It is common to call the Parson by the title of Matre or Patre depending on gender.

Chantry: Initially private parsonages established by lords and kings, now reserved for quiet adoration of the founding the 12 Adherents of the Faith. Those dwelling here serve a life of devotion to the Paragons of the Three Divinities. Led by a Chantor or Chantress, the members are known as postulants.

Chapter: An order of warriors of the faith, usually assigned in relation to a Chantry or Parsonage, to protect the faithful. Commonly filled with Cavalieri and Knights.

Devout: A deceased member of the faith recognized for being leaders and, ofttimes, martyrs of the faith.

In Matora

Matoran Centum: led by a Curate designated by the Reverends in Savo, the Curate is generally a member of one of the great houses of Matora.

Chapter Conservori: A branch of warriors that arose out of the teachings of Betula the Adherent. There is a chapter house in Matora for this Chapter. The Conservori form as a group of postulants work in Crea in 1190 to aid the wounded and fallen, protecting the innocent as the battles rage to claim the city for the Divine Kingdom.

Paregorio Chantry: Established early in the history of Matora, the Chantry took the name after Paregorio the Devout, once the Reverends of Savo ordained him as a Devout. He lived in Matora prior to the Kingdom of Saule, died in his faith to the Paragon States and in service to the Reverends even as the Divine Empire spread.
