The Church of the Brethren is a religious organization descended from Solomani Roman Catholicism.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Church teaches that all life is precious to God but that sentient life is the child of God.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Church was formed in -2509 after the Pope declared that only humans had souls.

  • Several Jesuit priests disagreed so violently with the decision they agreed to excommunication and proceeded to set up their own Church.
  • The Brethren services are still full of ritual but great emphasis is placed on living the religion, especially the giving of charity to those in need.

Worlds & Sectors (Astrography)[edit]

Father Emmanuel Dipa, the leader of the Jesuit "rebels", took many of his followers to found a colony on Dipa (Dagudashaag 2223), where the religion remains a state government to this day.
