[Beta] Catholicism

Roman Catholicism is one of the largest, oldest orthodox systems of Christian faith still rolling around the Discourse universe. While most agree that the best years of Catholic philosophy are well behind them since the rise of the secular Rational Empire, they once held enormous sway in Western thought, particularly after the fall of the original Sophists and Minervans.
