Diocese

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

A diocese is a region of the Imperium as divided by the Adeptus Ministorum. Each is headed by a Cardinal who might control hundreds of Preachers within the diocese. Each diocese originally encompassed hundreds of worlds.[1a] Ecclesiarch Sebastian Thor, as part of his reforms, reduced the size of a diocese and therefore limited the individual power of each Cardinal, making it harder for any one Cardinal to gain too much power.[1b] In the modern Imperium, a single Diocese generally encompasses an entire world.[2]
