Purges of Faith

The Purges of Faith was a period of religious persecution that spanned from Eleanor the Seventeenth’s ascension to the throne of the Empire of Australia until her death.

During this time, in all of the Empire’s lands, with the exception of the Holy Protectorate, the practice of religion was banned and subject to prosecution by the so-called Holy Courts. The crown appointed Inquisitors of Faith to ferret out religious practitioners to bring them before the Holy Courts. In practice, the courts nearly always found the practitioners guilty and sentenced them to death.
