    moral authority: how to boost it, what it's good for

    how do i raise moral authority? i know creating an anti-pope degrades it, but how can i raise it? does it happen when i grant bishop titles? and where do i see the actual number, for that matter?

    as far as i can tell, high MA means faster religeous conversions and the posibility of the pope launching crusades. i believe i read something about him granting divorces and launching crusades against heretics, as well. am i missing anything?

    Conquer non-catholic territories. Promote Bishops. Build Churches. Get MA high and conversions go much faster.

    on the flipside, lower MA increases the spread of heresies. that itself is both good or bad, depending on your intents

    Is the current MA shown anywhere in the UI?

    Yes go to your religion page. It should be on the top-right side

    It's the moral authority of the Pope and catholic church, your actions can affect moral authority but it's determined by the actions of the vast majority of catholics.

    Somebody successfully led a crusade ?

    Also, each time a character fullfills his ambition as a paragon or virtue, MA increases by 1 I think.

    Crusade is +20% instant.

    Having a high diplomacy stats for the Pope. Every 10 diplomacy = +0.1% per month.

    How does MA decline? It has been sitting between 90 and 100 for more than 100 years now, which has been nice since I haven't dealt with too many heretics. The Pope has only one barony in my game, so he's not up to much these days - is there a downside to having high MA? My natural instinct is to lower it, because I like to see chaos spread, but I don't really see a way. Do crusades fail, and does that cause loss of MA?

    I REALLY wish I had known this before making an antipope and installing him in Rome, I was just sick of getting excommunicated every damn time felt like invading me.

    Creation of Anti-Popes (this will tank the Moral Authority over time), Catholics losing holy wars (offensive and defensive) failure of Crusades.
