[恢复与更新]旧日王国志:拜火祭仪
« 于: 2017-02-28, 周二 13:49:53 »
                     

        拜火祭仪是起源于内海岸边古老的阿奇亚城的一种历史悠久的信仰。它敬拜当世界从无尽黑暗中诞生后燃起的原初之火。正是这团火焰点燃了太阳给陷入无边黑暗中的世界带来光明。拜火祭仪的信徒们将这神圣之火称之为“卢克斯”,或“不夜者“认为月亮和群星皆为太阳休憩时留下的余烬。因此,他们在其居住的村落、小镇,或者城市的中心点燃巨大的圣坛,希望由此驱赶当太阳休憩时分趁机席卷而来的夜晚的黑暗。

        拜火祭仪曾经一度是伊斯卡尼亚以及如今被称为奎兰帝国的大多数土地上相当常见的宗教。然而在千百年之前,当帝王的进军伊始之初,作为对负隅顽抗的阿奇亚人的惩罚,帝王摧毁了阿奇亚城的伟大圣坛,在拜火祭仪的信众当中,这座圣坛上曾经燃起世界上第一团神焰。帝王还杀死了几近所有拜火教士,尽管有极少一部分幸免于难的拜火祭仪信徒在帝王陨落后渡海来到旧日王国,然而拜火祭仪仍然几乎一度消亡殆尽。拜火祭仪的转机要一直等到数百年后。当铁手家族的所有成员均没入黄土之后,奥法国王凭借自己与前朝王室微弱的血缘关系即位为王,他本人正是一名日益复原中的拜火祭仪信徒中的一员。按照他的规划,一座全新的都城被建立起来,它被命名为“黎明之门”,并在这座城市的中心,建起了一座巨大、富丽堂皇的圣坛。由此以后,拜火祭仪的信徒们皆称其为“第二圣坛”,正如他们将早已被毁灭的阿奇亚圣坛称之为“第一圣坛”那样。随后一百多年,拜火祭仪在旧日王国得到长足发展,并且在一百年之后,重建的火焰圣所教团终于返回了他们的起源地,他们重建了阿奇亚的圣坛,并称其为“复兴圣坛”。尽管那座古老的城市如今早已成为奎兰人帝国的一部分。

        如今,拜火祭仪再次成为世界上相当常见的宗教,拥有广大的信众,其中不乏贵族、平民和士兵。虽然旧日王国(或希维利亚省)的大议会和帝国政府均已不再为其提供任何官方资助。而今,拜火祭仪在世界上有两个中心:黎明之门的火焰圣所和阿奇亚的燃烧圣所。他们视彼此为兄弟教会,然而却为教会的领导地位争论不休。但是无论如何,它们两者皆不再具有能够染指各自政府的影响力。尤其是如今帝国八柱神教会正有意谋划着如何减少拜火祭仪的信众数量。



       Fire Cult is an old belief which originated at Accia, an ancient city by the Inner Sea in Iscania. It worships the First Fire which born in the endless darkness after the birth of the world. It lit the sun that drove out the darkness and brought the world light. The followers called the sacred fire Lux, or Nightless, believing the moon and stars were the embers of resting sun. They fire the altars in the center of their settlements, towns, or cities due to the darkness returned trickily when the sun fell.

        Fire Cult was once a common religion spreading in Iscania and any else in the lands which we called Quenan Imperium today. But thousands of years ago, at the beginning of the Tyrant's Match, as a punishment to the defenders of Accia, the Tyrant destroyed the Great Altar which was believed the first lighted Sacred Flame and killed almost all of the Flame Magisters. The fire cult nearly disappeared once, although a several surviving followers traveled to the Old Kingdom after the Tyrant's Fall. Hundreds of years later, after all of the Ironhands gone, King Offaar got the throne with his meager bloodline to former Royal House. He was one of the expanding Fire Cult followers when the old faith finally had gone away with the former dynasty. As his planning, a new capital was established that was named Dawn's Gate, and a new huge and ornate Altar was built in its center. The followers called it The Second Altar reverently, as they called the destroyed one The First Altar in the destructed Accia. Ten more decades later, the rebuilt Flame Sanctum got back to their origin finally. They rebuilt the Altar in Accia that was called The Renew Altar, and the ancient city was a part of the rising Quenan Imperium, though.

        Nowadays the Fire Cult is a frequent faith in anywhere. It has a lot of followers who are nobles, commons, soldiers or any else, though the Great Assembly in the Old Kingdom(or, Silveria) and the government of Imperium both provide nothing to the Fire Cult Sanctums. Today, the fire cult has two centers in the world: the Flame Sanctum in Dawn's Gate and the Burning Sanctum in Accia. They Both treat each other brotherhood but object each other for the leadership. However, they neither have the influence to their own governments, especially the Church of Octo schemes to reduce the amount of the fire cult followers deliberately.

建安间,蜀中有女号琉璃。性柔善,有神通,民或有拜者。蜀主恶,六月间缚之于市,使斩。忽起大风,遂不知所踪。

琉璃,鱼泉人,自幼习道,有异术,性复和柔,孤弱往求之多应,是以民呼为圣,至有朝拜者。刘焉父子内不自安,适值张鲁大兴米道,遂去蜀游汉中。鲁大喜,尊崇备至,动静咨之,然与之言事多忘,己所言亦多不记,鲁以其迷糊,乃少息。一日忽去,临行留言曰“代赤者魏公子”。后曹操定汉中,适为魏公,张鲁遂决计归降,汉中得免刀兵。
