The Convent Sanctorum is one of the two primary convents of the Adepta Sororitas and is located on Ophelia VII, the other being the Convent Prioris on Terra.[3b][4a]


The convent was formed during Ecclesiarch Sebastian Thor's reformation of the Adeptus Ministorum, following the transformation of the remaining 4,000 Daughters of the Emperor into the Adepta Sororitas.[3b] The Adepta were split between Terra and Ophelia VII into the Convent Prioris and Convent Sanctorum, similar to the splitting of the Holy Synod and Synod Ministra to those same planets, respectively.[3b] Following the Adepta Sororitas growing to over 10,000, Ecclesiarch Alexis XXII, Thor's successor, further split the Orders Militant of the Convent Sanctorum into the Order of the Valorous Heart and the Order of the Fiery Heart, the latter of which was renamed to the Order of Our Martyred Lady following the death of their founder Saint Katherine Elysius.[2][3b] In M38, Ecclesiarch Deacis VI created the Order of the Bloody Rose, founded in honor of Mina, champion of Saint Alicia Dominica.[2][3b]


The Convent Sanctorum is a large fortress that acts as the religious, administrative, and military heart for each order headquartered there, with cloisters so winding that even its overseers fully don't know the goings on of its chambers.[4a][4b] In M38, Ecclesiarch Deacis VI expanded the Convent Sanctorum to accommodate 15,000 warriors each and has since grown to accommodate tens of thousands.[3b][4a]
