History

The origins of Begelism trace back to several messages on the Discord server of the Republic of Elysium, dated February of 2020. The church was originally founded as the Church of Snoot, with a branch of it being opened in Leo.

On 14 March, the Church was renamed to the Church of Begel, and began advertising the faith in other micronations. It was made the national religion of Crabistan, following its founding on 1 April.

After several months of inactivity, the-then Pope of the Church of Begel, Johann Kümmel, resigned on the 12th of August, with Andreas Hudson, Keisari of Roskya, resigning shortly after.

Organization

The Church of Begel was divided into "churches", each overseen by a Bishop, who would report directly to the Pope. There was also an Overseer of the Masses, who acted as a second-in-command to the Pope.
