  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise.

Nope. Those so-called holy books are subject to later changes and/or interpretations and annotations which cause a discourse tradition. This tradition can become so strong it overshadows the original message. Theology is pretty aware of problem of mutation, that is why everyone tries to find the earliest scriptures possible, as they are assumed to be void of later intrusions.
Doesn't matter what the content is. Holy books, traditions, secular laws . . . People (especially those with power) will try to use it to further their own ends, regardless of whether those goals are compatible with the original content/intent.

Agreed. No contradiction to my view.

It will be great to see the pope focus all his attention to the Fraticelli and the Cathars while I secretly spread the Word of Satan into Italy.

Since the theme is monks & mystics can we add that pop-up screen you get to name your kids for characters who become monks or nuns? From what I know people generally chose a new name when they took holy vows.

And for something off topic (but came to mind when reading bits of the thread) how about introducing orders of chivalry? Or is it too early in the timeline for it?

Not for the order of saint George I think, but it's the first of it's kind.

1. No one knows except the team itself, I would certainly hope so though.
2. Considering every DLC expansion has added new achievements, yes.
