The Congregation for Sacred Doctrine


Welcome to the home of the Congregation for Sacred Doctrine. This website shall serve to allow the unhindered work of the Congregation in service to the Church of the Light.

The Congregation for Sacred Doctrine is an independent religious research organisation responsible for managing the creation, editing, revision, evaluation, and publication of the Codex of Hours, Codex of Rites, and Codex of Scripture, and other sacred texts. The congregation serves as the evaluative body of the Church for determining the doctrinal validity and acceptability of sacred texts; and, consequently, only texts which bear the imprimatur of the congregation are definitively certified as being free from heretical or otherwise contrary doctrine.

The Congregation for Sacred Doctrine certifies as faithfully orthodox in doctrine all those organisations which only employ scriptual texts approved by the Congregation for Sacred Doctrine To this end, guilds and organisations may request Congregational certification. A list of Congregrationally-approved organisations is made available to the public.

In addition to its oversight of texts and liturgical practises, the congregation also devises and refines the liturgical practises of the church, publishes the annual liturgical calendar (missal), and handles matters associated with the beatification, causes, and sanctoral celebration of saints insofar as they are recorded in the sanctoral martyrology.

Currently serving on the Congregation are:
Monsignor MICHAEL Nicholls, Rector
Archbishop CASPIUS, Emeritus, Vicar
and
Archbishop ALONSUS II, ex-officio



The following organisations have notified the Congregation for Sacred Doctrine that they only utilise scriptural texts which have been approved by the Congregation. Consequently, these organisations are certified "faithfully orthodox in doctrine" by the Congregation for Sacred Doctrine:

- Azeroth Missions Society
- Clergy of the Holy Light
- Crimson Cross
- The Northshire Communion
- Remnant of Lordaeron
- Section IX

Orthodox members of the Church of the Holy Light may be assured of the orthodox, faithful, and free-of-error basis of the ecclesiastical matters conducted by these organisations or groups.

This codex contains many illustrations individually seleced by the Abbot Michael NICHOLLS, and printed in multi-colour tints by the Archbishop Emeritus, CASPIUS, on his newly invented printing machine which the Archbishop developed in his free time, alone and all by himself, with the not inconsiderable assistance of hired goblins.
