Ursuline is one of the Religions practiced in After the End. Ursuline is part of the Christian religious group.

Description[]

"The Ursulines originated as an antediluvian religious order, patronized by Saint Ursula. Introduced to the Americas during the colonial era, their presence could be found wherever the French colonized. During and shortly after the great cataclysm, Quebecois Roman Catholics, unable to contact old Rome, turned to the Ursuline order for leadership. Since then the Ursulines have served as Quebec's continuation of antediluvian Catholicism, and their followers have steadfastly refused to recognize the American Pope in New Rome." ― In-Game description of Ursuline

History[]

The Ursuline church is a Christian religion that formed from the antediluvian matriarchal Roman Catholic Ursuline Order in Quebec. The Ursulines maintain antediluvian Catholicism in Canada, while refusing to acknowledge the authority of the Pope in New Rome.

The Ursulines have served Quebec's keeping the old faith alive while also shifting into a Catholicism controlled by a female sisterhood. the Ursulines have their own Ursuline See in Quebec led by the Abbess-General in a similar fashion to the Pope. As of 2666, the most famous Ursuline Abbess-General has been Agrippine 'the Maid'. Under her reign the Great Schism between Ursulines and mainstream Catholics would be temporarily mended. The death of the Quebecois Abbess-General Agrippine "the Maid" (the first and only woman to hold the title of Pope) put the final nail in the coffin for a united American Catholicism. The Quebecois refused to acknowledge any further American Popes.

Much of Canada that practiced Catholicism before the Event now practices Ursulinism, including most of Québec and northern Ontario (Now commonly referred to as Aurora). This extreme regionalism has led to an odd circumstance where Culture all but determines ones faith, with almost all Quebecois and Ontarois being Ursuline. They are also found parts of northern Vermont and in the Acadien county of Usitukun in southern Nova Scotia.
