Lore:Imperial Saints

Lore: Factions: I

The Imperial Saints are pious individuals venerated by the Church, the majority religion among Imperials.[1][2][3]

Many saints are historical figures who continue to be revered long after death.[1][3][4] The Church also venerates Living Saints, individuals who have received a calling to live by the commands of their chosen Divine as an example to others.[5]

The practice of saint-eating was popular in the First Era before it was banned at some point prior to 1E 2877.[6][7] This involved the disinterring of a saint's body for use as an ingredient in the preparation of food. However, apocryphal accounts suggest the practice did not immediately cease.[6] An ancient text called the "Scroll of Precursor Saints" was supposedly discovered by Abnur Tharn in the vaults of the White-Gold Tower in 2E 541.[8]
