The Catholic Papal States
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
The Catholic Papal States was a country born from the declaration of Papal States in Year 1035. It appeared to be a direct successor to the Xerxes God-Protected Empire.
Catholic Wichita was a great man who had been forever engraved in history as the discoverer of the sacred cave. He was canonized in 1040, two years after his death in 1038, and he was one of the saints. He was most famous in modern times as a saint of learning, which had been the case since he was canonized.
He was born in Vaticanus in 976 as the fifth son of the Wichita family, and he was admitted to a monastery before he knew it. (At that time, leaving a young child in a monastery was a common practice among nobles, as it was killing two birds with one stone method that showed faith and at the same time dispelled trouble.)
He was particularly fond of history and theology in the monastery and didn’t seem to despise prayer, but he rather preferred to read books. Perhaps, he was more of a scholar than a monk. He left the monastery at the age of 16 and entered the Largolanco Monastery, which had a function that could be called a seminary at that time. At the age of 18, he was the youngest to pass the most difficult priesthood exam (Astrasean) in the system of the God-Protected Empire.
Those who passed this test generally took the bishop position of cathedral in various places, but Catholic refused to do so and returned to the monastery. After that, at the age of 22, he left the monastery, and devoted himself to the study of theological theory at the cathedral of Vaticanus. The special research seat of the cathedral was an authority on theological research at that time, and it was a great honor.
Catholic Wichita’s theological theory had been consistent since that time, and it was characterized by a sincere theory construction based on his deep understanding of astrology. However, although he gained fame as a scholar, his religiously stoic claims were disliked by the monastic council and didn’t spread to the public. However, there was lively debate within the cathedral, and Catholic’s claim had steadily increasing numbers of supporters.
At the age of 27, Catholic found a new research subject. The study was the identification of the sacred cave location, where the sacred body of Issus was believed to still lie.
The scriptures of the Isus religion consisted of 24 volumes, six of which were the works of Isus himself. However, there were a lot of materials called apocrypha which weren’t included in it. Catholic enthusiastically read them, carefully researched even those that were said to be authentic, and succeeded in narrowing down the area considerably. It was at the age of 30 that he took his research and traveled to the Kururuan Dragon Empire, where diplomatic relations hadn’t deteriorated at that time.
Catholic finally discovered the sacred cave after five months of enthusiastic fieldwork.
After that, Catholic, who gained fame, was involved in the excavation of the sacred cave, as the leader of the excavation team. He took great care in breaking the wall so as not to make noise. Then, there was a stone bed and a linen bed in the back, and the sacred body of Isus himself laid on it. Catholic Wichita became the person of the moment, and no one in the Xerxes God-Protected Empire didn’t know the name of Catholic Wichita.
Subsequently, Catholic Wichita proposed to bring the sacred body immediately to Vaticanus, but this suggestion was unaccepted. When his proposal became known to the monastic council, Catholic was immediately dismissed and returned to Vaticanus. He said that he obeyed it obediently without any objection.
Since discovering the sacred cave, he had acted to avoid war, rather than sticking to his faith. As a result, Catholic Wichita was often said to have ‘lost faith when he saw the sacred body’ in later life. His attitude since the discovery of the sacred body was certainly not priestly, but rather scholarly and reasoned. He suggested the immediate movement of the sacred body probably because he thought that there was nothing foolish if war would naturally occur when they refused to move it.
In the turmoil of the situation, Catholic closed his mouth and returned to the cathedral, where he was one again devoted to the study of theological theory. Meanwhile, the war triggered by his discovery continued to worsen. When the cathedral was renovated, he moved to the Largolanco monastery, an old nest located on the outskirts of Vaticanus. After the war, Catholic was absorbed in his research like a recluse, instead of watching Cranixes 5 acting recklessly.
After the rebellion of the 12th division, the chamberlain of the Holy Sleep Shrine, who became the first Pope. He was one of the followers of Catholic’s ideas. He named the Catholic Papal States to dispel the old teachings of Cranixes 5 and the monastic council, and created a new term, the Catholic Sect.
Until then, the Catholic Sect existed only in the Holy Sleep Shrine, but here, he would appear on the front stage. At that time, Catholic was about to reach his 60th birthday.
It seemed that he was beginning to suffer from mental illness at that time as his physical strength weakened. The discovery of the sacred cave destroyed the spirit of the discoverer at the same time as the fate of the two countries.
He suffered from conscience for a long time because he became a distant cause of the misery of the Xerxes campaign, and in his later years, he came to think that the discovery of the sacred cave was a major stain in the history of religion. Above all, he hated being treated like a priest in the discovery of the cave, and in his last years, he no longer called himself a priest. When others called him a priest, he stubbornly denied it.
However, after the declaration of the Papal States, Catholic was recalled to the Vaticanus. Catholic believed that he was responsible for the series of turmoil that began with the discovery of the sacred cave, but others did not. Although it was Catholic who discovered the sacred cave, it was Cranixes V who instructed the actual excavation, so the reaction of the surroundings would be natural.
Catholic refused all official positions, so in the end, he became the first president of the newly established Catholic Theological Seminary in Vaticanus. However, his teaching life didn’t last long, and he died two years after he took office at the age of 62.
The Catholic Papal States was established in this watch with the Catholic Sect of the Isus religion as the state religion.
