The True and Holy Chosen Hierophant of the Houses of Light is the leader of the Church of Light and the interpreter of its sacred mysteries and arcane principles. He holds his office in the holy city of Temple and sits on the Velvet Seat within the Lux Lucis Templum.

The current hierophant is Maxem the Mariner.


The Hierophanic Epiphany

When it is time for a new hierophant to take the Velvet Seat, a member of the faithful will be blessed with a hierophanic epiphany, the sudden realization and knowledge to become the next hierophant. There have certainly been attempts at fraud, but all hierophants are appointed by infallible divine hands.
