Heresy of the Army of the TruthfulEdit
With the establishment of the heretical Scarlet order, the Army of the Truthful, the inquisition was forced into taking a firm course of action to ensure their suppression from influencing the Church of the Holy Light. With the proposal of Popohnia Fitzerhernn, that the Scarlet text known as the Book of Flame be outlawed and persecuted, the inquisition have worked towards its full eradication.
As of January, 625 K.C. the Book of Flame has been officially outlawed in by provincial decree in Provinces of Gilneas, including Alterac and Kul’Tiras, and Stormwind, as the inquisition continues its efforts of suppressing the heresy of Truth.
Reformation of DeusEdit
Instigated by Ceylin Twinblades, this monotheistic variant of the Holy Light was formed and its theology altered from other Deist or "Deusian" groups of the past (such as the Kastonites and the Church of Deus). The Church wished to try and condemn Ceylin and other "Ceylinite" Deists for Slander and Heresy officially, but for actively speaking against the Church, publishing such sentiments in heretical tomes and distributing them throughout the Cathedral District---even recruiting followers from within the Church.
Because Twinblades was sought by the Church and the State for various charges and due to the ideological differences of "proper" punishment, then-Prefect Luther Alburton tried and arrested him---the Court of the Inquisition finding him Guilty of Heresy---rather than allowing Secularists to arrest and grant leniency on basis of the Rights of a Nobleman in a court not of the Church. Most of Twinblades' tomes, Lux Dei, were confiscated to be burned.
