The Papal States has recently tried to stake sole domination of the Papacy and we cannot in good conscience allow this to stand!

The Livonian Order has therefore declared that we must break with the Pope in Rome, and declare our new grandmaster, the Patriarch in Novgorod. And as such will no longer pay tribute to the corrupt officials in Rome! We will expel all and any representatives of Rome and for those not devout enough to follow our order in it’s path towards divinity they shall be escorted from our lands by missionary.

We will of course generously extend our hands in friendship to any that wish to free themselves from the papal exortion and follow us into a brighter, and more divine world!
