Nazarine Order

Cathar coin

The Nazarine Order splintered from the main body of Ensolian religion very early in its history. The people of the Taranne had a long history of communal mother-worship. Nazarianism is now completely entrenched within the region. It owes its main credo to its so-called founder, Sainte Nazaire, who was executed during the Almoravin Crusades and who has been canonized by the Nazarines.

The Nazarines believe in the ultimate mercy of Ensela and the goodness of her works. They are a communal religion, and their priests only become so through rigorous purification of the body and mind. Any dedicated applicant may become a priest of Ensela as it requires no formal training, learning, or hierarchy but rather stricter and stricter adherence to a system of rigorous guidelines (including eschewing the consumption of meat and sexual intercourse or release of any kind).
