Catholic events[1] include the event that allows the Counter-Reformation, two triggered events that disable the papacy and a group of bi-yearly pulse events.

Counter-Reformation[edit]

The following event allows the Counter-Reformation.

Msg event.pngProvince icon.png The Council of $PROVINCECAPITAL$


His Holiness, the Pope, has tasked a commission of cardinals with addressing the challenges posed by the Protestant movement. While the Catholic faith itself must not be compromised, His Holiness and most cardinals are willing to admit that some Protestant complaints are valid. Therefore, the Council advises many changes to the administration of the Church, a stop to absentee Bishops and the worldly excesses of the clergy. In addition, several new monastic orders are to be founded, to aid in the efforts of the Counter-Reformation.

Decision related events[edit]

Msg event.pngThe Kingdom of God on Earth


Having united the whole of Italy under the banner of Catholicism, the Pope has seen fit to declare it 'The Kingdom of God'. Catholics from all over Europe flock to his banner, eager to live in this model nation of Christian virtue. Foreign powers can no longer control the College of Cardinals, but neither will they pay much heed to any Papal bulls or decrees.

$COUNTRY$, having brought all five Patriarchates back into the Christian - Orthodox - fold, we have restored the old Pentarchy, thus effectively ending the great East-West Schism.

Bi-yearly events[edit]

The following events for CatholicismCatholic countries are triggered by the bi-yearly pulse. All events have a weight of 100.

Msg event.pngSimony?


We have a vacancy in high position in the church administration of $CAPITAL$. There is a churchman from a rich family who has made an offer. If we approve and back his election to the position, we will gain a large contribution to our coffers. Some more devout people claim that this is a sin called Simony, but what do they know?

  • gains Devotion.png 1 devotion.


Msg event.pngSelling of Indulgences


'As soon as a coin in the coffer rings, a soul from purgatory springs!', as Johann Tetzel said. The Pope offers indulgences for money, so the souls of the rich can be saved while still continuing in sin. This is what eventually caused a fraction in the Church and led to the reformation.

Msg event.pngVeneration of Relics


From the highest to the very low, the people believe that the veneration of will allows the viewer to reduce their time in purgatory. A treatise opposing this practice has been found nailed to a church door with a very substantial relic collection. The opponents of this practice are hurting the unity of the one true path to salvation, the holy, universal and apostolic church, or perhaps they are right?

Msg event.pngWorship of the Virgin Mary


The Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, is the Queen of heaven and mediator of many graces. There is no more perfect woman and her holy motherhood grants her a seat at the right hand of God. Or does it? Recently radical theologians have been arguing that there is no need for such intersessions. Are they right, or is the holy mother church in danger from their almost heretical utterings?

Msg event.pngThe Doctrine of Particular Judgment


When we die, God judges immediately and decides a soul's fate until it awaits the last judgment. A monk has started a doctrinal dispute that verges on the edge of heresy, when he claimed that there was no purgatory and saying prayers for the dead would not assist their passage into heaven. These disputes are threatening the very unity of our church.
