Cruxi is a monotheistic religion widespread on Coracan. Its adherents, known as Cruxi or Cruxis, believe that Ngamarakad (typically referred to simply as 'God') is the supreme deity responsible for the creation of the universe.
The religion is believed to have originated around 120 Fa, more than 4000 years ago, near the city of Andar. The united Cruxi church held together for 1700 years until the Great Schism of 1828 Fa, dividing into Elladic and Saltyrian denominations.
The term 'Cruxi' comes from the symbol of the crux used by Cruxis. According to the religion, this was the shape that appeared to Cruxi's first prophet, Utha, in the sky, proclaiming Ngamarakad's plan for the present age to be the last and that he should persuade as many people as possible to turn to Ngamarakad before the final Apocalypse. 'Cruxi' means someone who proclaims the coming Final Apocalypse and of Ngamarakad's ultimity.
Cruxis believe in one supreme and uncreated creator god, variously called Ngamarakad, Ngama Ngamama, or, most commonly, simply 'God'.
Otherwise known as the Andarian Creed, this creed was formulated in 560 Fa.
In modern Pan:
The Uncreated God is supreme and has no equal and Utha became His prophet after seeing the Sign of the Cross appear in the heavens.
We believe in the One Way, the One Truth and the One Life.
God is the One Truth, who created all things. Utha is the First Proclaimer of the One Way which originates from the One Truth.
Through submission to the Crux and adherence to the Divine Law of Holy Scripture, believers will be saved and brought into the Resurrection of Paradise with God at the End of Time.
Therefore, we are to proclaim the coming of the End and the necessity of submitting to the Crux before the Unravelling begins.
In Old Osgal:
Genesyakatrivatya Ngamdi et panakrata un est no'eka; Utha profetni Cruxenmark manifesni et skee.
Myen religni et ba'via, et ba'verit, et ba'vit'
Ngamdi et ba'via; Ngamdi katrivatni panvita'
Utha et ba'prosletniya et ba'via et genesya ba'verit'
Et submisni et Crux un relignia et Ngamadura et sankalog, relignianen salvani un viani et askia'vit Paradis et Ngamdi et Ultimnia Kronu'
Myen et prosletni ultimnia un nid et submisni priurya Rendennia genesni
Cruxis believe that the current era will be the last and ended by a Final, sixth, Apocalypse. At that point, the Primanna will be destroyed and the Cruxi faithful will be raised into heaven to live out eternity in the presence of Ngamarakad.
One main difference between Saltyrian Cruxi and Elladic Cruxi is that the former believe the world to have been created within God, rather than outside Himself. Elladis consider this a near-heretical syncretism with the Harmonic religions and was one of the reasons for the Schism.
