Summary: On the world of Terralee, the Council of Lords was the ruling body of the
General Assembly of believers. Consisting of thirty-five patriarchs and thirty-five
matriarchs (4:24:1), the Council made efforts to identify the rise of holy teachers,
or dispensational leaders, and offer them positions among the Council. This occurred
with Abbahdon, Laecontes, and Kaseah.
And it came to be that Abbahdon was brought secretly before the Council of Lords
in the city of Pilar, which council did consist of thirty-five patriarchs and thirty-five
matriarchs; and there stood beside Abbahdon even his own Beloved, Gaia, who was herself
awed to stand before so august a body.
