The Praetitiaties

Has major power in the southwest, with lesser power in the surrounding areas. Especially popular with peasants, but many nobles and rich folk make a show of donating in order to improve their own images.
This religion was founded well over two-hundred years ago, by an exceptionally wise healer, who’s name is no longer known. He realized that the best way to make a profit was to do many healings for a price that even the commoners could afford. Of course for one man to do that alone was far too heavy of a workload, so he recruited as many children and young people with a talent for healing as he could, and while training them, indoctrinated them into his philosophy, which he put in terms of a religion, so that it would be easier for people to follow. Basically, the tenets are: heal anyone who needs it, and take in payment only what the recipient can afford. For those without healing, use whatever means you have to help your neighbors, and accept payment only if the recipient can afford it. Accept anything with value as a form of payment. Healers who extort money from their patients, or who refuse to heal the poor, are sinners. Unfortunately, in the years since his death, sinners has given way to heretics. Recently there have been a number of lynchings done in the name Praetitia, mostly by layfellows, but a few with clergy backing them, done to healers who either wouldn’t, or couldn’t heal a sick poor person.
