    We've seen many references to Christianity and its spread throughout the world, but we haven't established where Jerusalem is and where the Jewish people are native to. I suggest the unclaimed deserts south of Arveyres or the mountains west of Texania and south of Europe. The location south of Arveyres could easily explain why Alba is one of the first places Christianity spreads to and that location could explain the relatively high Christian populations in Aloia and Marquette. That location also gives the young religion a good location to spread to the (seemingly) Roman/Latin Eurasians and the rest of the Mediterranean continent and the other location would give the young church a good location to spread west to the Ajanic Empire and the nations on that continent and west toward Aloia, Marquette, and Arveyres.

    At some point after that (preferably sometime in the 1500s-ish, like in real life) I'd like to have a Reformation where the Church of Aloia separates from the larger Christian church, because that's a huge event in Aloian history. Let me know what yall think about that. Aloia's kind of in the middle of everything so no matter where we start Christianity, it'd be easy for it to spread to Aloia.

    Also, I'd like to kind of base my history on a history like Sweden. I'll probably just have most of Aloia's empire (and all the stuff Sweden does with Norway and the rest of Scandinavia) the peninsula straight north of Aloia and maybe Marquette and other neighbors.

    The only issue is that Eurasia is a good deal south and is an island. There could be a Eurasian occupation in the area, but that would require a great deal of national history rewrites.

    We have actually established the locations of Jerusalem, Byzantium, the Vatican, and the like.

    Jerusalem: Alba is where Christianity got is start, spread through the 'hustle and bustle' of Alba.
    Byzantium: Fuerteventura, Marquette, basically the Heart of Orthodoxy.
    Vatican City: A city in Duresia (the name isn't quite coming to me)
    Mecca: Sancesa, I basically rewrote the history of Islam to fit my nation.

    The Eurasians (Romans) ordered Jesus' execution (if you'd like to participate!)

    Or the Jews killed Jesus

    Eurasia could do that. I would have to either occupy Alba for a time though, or Jesus would have to take a trip to Eurasia and promptly get executed. How would it work?

    Also the Jewlluminati actually went back in time and killed Jesus so he wouldn't complete the triangle. #InfoWars

    Well Arveyres (Alba Theocracy) could have been under temporary Arveyran rule from 100 BCE to 300 CE. Could that work out?



    For anyone curious of the locations of Alba (Jerusalem), Sancesa (Mecca), Angora (Medina).

    I could agree to all that. Perhaps Marquette's Orthodoxy could be the church the Aloian church breaks from. Marquette is closer to Aloia than Duresia and so it would make more sense. Would anyone else in that region of the continent be interested in being part of a Reformation period? Maybe in the 1500s plus or minus 200 years?

    Well....at the end of the XVI century Tarajan rejected Christianity in order to come back to the ancient Jahanism. However, I guess some good Reformation spirit could have helped such a process!

    Eurasia's Christian Adventure:

    Augustus’ first action as Emperor was to expand the Empire, and the decision was made to occupy the land of Alba in 58 BCE, in what is modern day Arveyres. Imperial explorers had first encountered the area during Julius I’s reign, and it was believed to be inhabited largely by natives and not a significant threat to Imperial expansion. Alba was subjugated with little difficulty, and in 55 BCE it became an official province of Regillum. This acquisition, while seeming inconsequential at the time, was one of the most important decisions in history, as it would directly lead to the rise of two of the largest monotheistic religions in the world.
    In 49 BCE a large revolt occurred, instigated by religious leaders in the region, and quickly spread to engulf all of the Abla Province. Augustus, preoccupied with his fight for tax reform in the Senate, sent an entire legion to enter the province and passify it, by any means necessary. The generals in command of the legion “read between the lines”, so to speak, and when the leaders were found in the town of Villa Abalium, known today as Villa Abalui, the generals executed some 6,000 Albans. The rebellion was crushed, brutally, but the Jews in Alba now viewed the Regilli not as benevolent overlords but as conquerors.
    The Senate voted in 45 BCE to rename Regillum “Eurasia” in honor of Julius Eurasius, with Eurasia meaning “Eurasius’ Land”. The trade with Alba increased dramatically, and in 35 BCE scholars estimate, via Imperial records, that almost a quarter of all Imperial revenue came from that relatively small province alone.
    Augustus died in 14 BCE at the age of seventy-five, and was succeeded by his son, Tiberius. Around this time, another rebellion occurred in Alba, this time with assaults on Eurasian citizens. The garrison responded by sacking the temple and confiscating many valuables that were inside. The populace immediately revolted and overran the Imperial garrison, and Tiberius deployed two whole legions to again crush the dissent, but this time with an added stipulation: there would no longer be native rule of Alba.
    When the rebellion was crushed, which it inevitably was, the local governance structures were abolished and Imperial governors, or Prefects, were brought in to maintain order. The rebellions ceased, mainly due to the subjugation of the Alban people and their land. Essentially, the Emperor gave them an ultimatum of “Cease the rebellion or be enslaved.” The Governor of Alba, Septimus Severus, was viewed as fair enough for a Eurasian governor, and the people, if unhappy, were more or less unwilling to rebel again.
    During this time period, Eurasian relations with the Aldmeri Kingdom, which inhabited modern-day Asticus, grew peacefully, and Eurasia began trading with the kingdom for wines and spices while the Aldmeri sought Eurasian arms and armor. The increased trade somewhat diminished Alba’s hold on the Imperial economy,and slowly Alba began to be forgotten by many Eurasians as nothing more than a dismal, far away province not worth considering.
    At the turn of the millenium, in 0 ECE, Septimus Severus died and was replaced by another Eurasian-borne ruler, Agrippa Postumus, who worked to repair relations between the Alban Jews and the Eurasian Empire. The principal amongst these differences was religious, as the Albans mostly practiced monotheistic religions (predominantly Judaism), whilst the Eurasians practiced the worship of Mos Maiorum, which is still practiced today. These extreme cultural differences were compounded by language barriers, with very few Eurasians choosing to learn the various languages spoken by the Alban people and most Albans being unable to do so (for various reasons). Thus, when Postumus died, he was replaced by the elderly Antonius Diogenes, who died within months of taking the post. He was then replaced by Titus Pomponius Atticus, who was assassinated before being able to govern.
    Thus, in 29 ECE, Pontius Pilate became the fifth Prefect of Alba, and this decision by Emperor Tiberius effectively changed the course of history.
    Within a year of becoming Prefect, Pilate was forced to content with a rebellion instigated by dissatisfied Alban Jewish leaders, many of whom saw the Eurasian presence as blasphemous. Pilate crushed the rebellion, but he was given strict new orders from Tiberius: “There was to be no more civil unrest.” Thus, Pilate entered into an uneasy Prefectship with the Alban people, and the stage was set for Pilate’s most famous decision four years later.
    In 33 ECE, the Jewish philosopher and religious leader Jesus Christ was arrested and brought before Pilate. Imperial Records would indicate that Jesus was spreading dissent amongst the Jewish Albans and attempting to circumvent the Imperial foothold in the region, while Biblical verses contend that the Eurasians were coerced into doing so by overzealous Albans. Whatever the case, Pilate ordered Jesus’ execution, with crucifixion being the de jure punishment for rebellion at the time.  
    Thus, Jesus was executed in 33 ECE, and Christianity slowly began to spread from Alba into all of modern Arveyres, and then to the world. However, Eurasian occupation of Alba did not end there. In 105 ECE, yet another rebellion occurred, this time from Christians who wanted Alba to be independent from the Eurasian Empire and attempted to fight for it. The rebellion was put down, but the Emperor, Sextus, permanently garrisoned two legions in Alba and ordered the rebels to be crucified.
    By 260 ECE, many Eurasian Senators and Imperial officials were beginning to question the efficacy of the occupation, which was in its almost 300th year and was now financially draining for the Empire. Indeed, Imperial Records indicate that the Imperial Military was forced to maintain near martial law permanently to maintain order, and the cost on Imperial manpower was significantly hampering the Empire’s ability to expand elsewhere. Thus, in 289 ECE, Emperor Novius officially withdrew Imperial troops and left the Albans to their own devices, ending the 300 year occupation of Alba and Eurasian rule in the area.

    Here's the entry on Eurasia's presence in Alba.

    Alright. This is a work in progress, but here is my plan for Buddhism and Shintoism:

    http://i.imgur.com/B4UoKg7.png (download and zoom to 500% to see better)
    Already, here are corrections:

    • Bodhgaya = Buddagaya
    • Kushinagar = Kushinagara
    • Lumbini = Runbini


    Dates:
    Unknown yet.

    I'll post on the RMB when it is fully ready.

    I guess it would be natural, Eurasia.
    You've a clearly Roman-inspired background...so I'm sure nobody would object.

    If there's someone interested in sharing Jahanism or a similar paganism, let me know!
