Acolytes are the lowest in authority. Above them are the priests. Each city will have at least 1 priest for each God. Above the Priests are the Bishops, usually there is 1 Bishop per Duchy. for Whatever God is most popular in that duchy, but there can be two or more if some Gods are equally popular in the region. Above the priests are the Archbishops. There is one Archbishop per Kingdom per god. And Finally there is the High Priests. There are only ever 9 High Priests, one for each God. all 9 high priests share equal power in the Church Authority, there is no singular leader. Each rank is appointed by the rank(s) above it. And only for the same God. E.x. An Acolyte of Dimo can only be appointed by a Priest of Dimo The High Priests are elected from the archbishops of that God, an archbishop can not vote for themselves. And they remain in that position until death or until they are not capable of the position.
