The Diocese of Alterac is a geographic province of the spiritual authority of the Church of the Holy Light, located in the Kingdom of Alterac. The Church of the Holy Light in Alterac is centered around Alterac City and extends to the surrounding areas. The Diocese of Alterac is headed by the Bishop of Alterac, currently vacant.

JurisdictionEdit

The Diocese of Alterac is bordered by the Diocese of Lordaeron to the north, and to its westernmost point. the Baradin Bay to the south, its eastern most section borders the Diocese of Stromgarde along the Throndroril River where it empties into Baradin Bay. The mountain range to the southwest of the Hillsbrad Foothills border the Diocese of Gilneas.

The Diocese briefly adopted Eagle's Perch as its resident cathedral, prior to Eleisonne's retirement. Upon retirement Eleisonne reversed his decision and recreated the Alterac Chapel as the Diocese's resident cathedral. During Eleisonne's tenure, he was quick to offer a helping hand to the predominant orders within the Alterac Mountains and established the the Museum of Modern Alteraci History and Heritage to offer dedication to the short lived Bishop Emeritus Ahnca Elric as well as various other figures from Alteraci history.
