Pendragon - the whole damn dynasty
Two rival types of Christianity are practiced in Britain at this time.
- British Christianity is native to the island, established by immigrants four centuries ago. It has bishops and abbots, but no single ﬁgure rules over all of them. Their local kings or noblemen appoint these important leaders, who in turn are loyal to their regional lords.
- The Roman Church is part of a hierarchy that takes its orders from Rome, so the pope determines its bishops. The Roman Christian Church in Logres has one supreme churchman, the Archbishop of Carlion, a Cymric, Dubricus by name; there are also a dozen or so abbots of great houses.
Churchmen are not considered noble unless they are also landlords, which is not uncommon. Many noble fami- lies have made land grants to churches or abbeys, which in turn supply knights in the usual feudal manner.
