Dominionism is a radical doctrine found in some temples of Haelyn. It argues for a radically theocratic state run exclusively according to the Book of Laws, generally interpreted in light of local theological tradition. Important points for Dominionists include:
Critics of Dominionism generally point to the fact that Haelyn envisioned a rule by the nobility, not by a priesthood, and that the vision of Haelyn allowed for a less orthodox nobility as sufficient for government. This is sometimes known as the principle of two standards, one more rigorous for priests of Haelyn and one less rigorous for the nobles who rule.
This doctrine is generally contrasted with the Doctrine of two swords.
