Sedevacantist  is one of the Religions practiced in After the End. Sedevacantism is part of the Christian religious group, and considered an heresy of the Catholic faith.


"The name Sedevacantist comes from the Latin term 'Sede Vacante', meaning 'the seat is vacant'. Sedevacantists reject the authority of the Pope of New Rome, denying his right to call himself successor of the Pope of Old Rome because it cannot be established if the Papacy of the Old World still exists. Even if it has ceased to exist, they reject the notion that the Bishop of New Rome (St. Louis) could or should have the same authority as the original Pope. They argue that the primacy of Rome cannot be duplicated merely out of convenience, feel the Bishop of New Rome has no more right to be head of their faith than any other bishop in the land, and call his College of Cardinal a sham and cabal of co-conspirators. Instead, Sedevacantists believe the office of Pope should be considered 'vacant' until a true Pope returns, unless it can be confirmed the original Pope is no more." ― In-game description of Sedevacantist

But after the Sedevacantist line of Rodham died out, the Anabaptist line of Groot took over Hudsonia, converting much of the Kingdom. As of 2666, Sedevacantism is considered a mostly dead doctrine, with the lack of contact with Old Rome having lasted hundreds of years. However If there ever was any rumor of the existence of a Pope in Old Rome, the faith could resurface...
