Recognition

Recognized by the Epitomic Orthodox Church and Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople

The Thialren Orthodox Church (Thialren: Sirclesia Pravoslavaliayaicus Thelranicus), officially and legally the Thialren Orthodox Archbishopric (Thialren: Ardopatate Pravoslavaliayaicus Thelranicus), is an autonomous Epitomic Orthodox Church under the jurisdiction of the Patriarchate of Astana.

The Thialren Orthodox Church was founded in 1132 as the Tholrae Orthodox Church by Saint Kerius, the Duke of Tholrae at the time. He opposed the existing Arian-Nestorian church in Tholrae, which would eventually join the Protogeni Church and overtake the Orthodox one. For a significant period of time, the Thialren Orthodox Church was the dominant religion in Tholrae.

Its size eventually waned under King Trajann XI, who persecuted Christianity in Thialrer. Saint Valius, the Duke of Tholrae, and Saint Sava, the Bishop of Tholrae, were both martyred by Trajann XI. After Trajann XII ascended to the throne, instead of the Thialren Orthodox Church resurfacing, the Arian-Nestorian church overtook the Orthodox one as the dominant religion in the Tholrae Duchy. This was opposed by Duke Saint Xaleriucus, who was later martyred under the reign of Prince Regent Trajann XIII.

The church continued to exist for a while as the largest minority religion in Tholrae before Emperor William Knight began a war to reunite Thialrer. He heavily persecuted the Thialren Orthodox Church and martyred Archbishop of Thialrer Daniel Thompson, who was later canonized as a saint.

After the conversion of Khatun Qirka Bulan of Khazar Lechia to the Protogeni Church and subsequent mending of the schism between the Protogeni and Orthodox Churches, the Thialren Orthodox Church was organized under the Astana Patriarchate of the Epitomic Orthodox Church.
