History Edit

Civilizations that were a theocracy, or nearly so, were governed by officials thought to be receiving divine guidance. When the people believed this to be true, the government could direct them to carry out almost any command. In such a society, the religious leaders and monks had great power. When in contact with civilizations of weaker religious beliefs, there could occur a rapid spread of conversion.
