The Church of the Lightning Stone was a Christian church on Terra during the Unification Wars. It contained the Lightning Stone, a relic reputed to have healing powers. Its last caretaker was by the priest Uriah Olathaire. The Church had the dubious distinction of being the last place of public worship to be destroyed by the Emperor's warriors. Its destruction was overseen by the Emperor personally, who, in the guise of a simple warrior named Revalation, engaged Olathaire in a debate about the relative merits of religion and the Imperial Truth. At the conclusion of the debate the church was burned to the ground and Olathaire, despite being offered a place at the Emperor's side, chose martyrdom in the flames.[1]
