Auto-da-fé: the ceremony for pronouncing judgment by the Inquisition which was followed by the execution of sentence by secular authorities. / the burning of a heretic
Events portrayed during the creation of this story are totally fictional, although based on real or imaginary historical events of the world in which we are living.
“Excerpt from the Holy Book of the Abess of the Holy Mercy…”
roura, the sacred name of the World, called in hushed tones by the priests all around the planet, for it was the name third goddess: the Granddaughter; who exhausted at the moment of her birth, fell asleep. The Mother and the Grandmother, whose name was unknown, kept the sweet slumber of the youngest one from the heavens.
And in her slumber, she gave birth to the tiny creatures that roamed the outer core of her body; thus, they thrived.
Alas, not everything had gone smoothly. There were some groups of rebels: the agnostics, who claimed that the Goddesses were a myth, although they couldn´t explain another theory for the creation of all the sentient creatures spread through the world.
Also, the worst of them: the heretics, who behaved contrary to the Goddesses´ most important commandment, cross breeding outside their races and species.
A group of over-zealous citizens gathered. They came to the idea of prosecuting those rebel groups, fearing that otherwise, the wrath of the deities would fall upon the entire world.
After seeing that the task was too huge for their powers, they summoned the Mother and the Grandmother with an arcane ritual only known to the eldest. […] Thus, starting the tradition of the Auto-da-fé during the Spring Equinox.
A good way to ensure that the commandments of the deities were well kept, was to leave behind a religious group, who faithfully followed the three Goddesses´ commands, and teaching them to the ever growing population who spread throughout Aroura.
