The cathedral was originally located on Eclipticum. It became the center of controversy early in YC106, following Aritcio Kor-Azor renting it for supposed religious festivities. The "festivities" were apparently of an indecent nature, resulting in damage to the cathedral and the destruction of several holy artifacts stored there. An investigation by the Theology Council could turn up no evidence against Aritcio, so all charges were dropped.
Restoration and tourist opening
The damage forced the cathedral to close for renovation, but funds were not available for them. Eventually, Catiz Tash-Murkon purchased the cathedral and announced her intentions to open the cathedral to tourists in order to pay for the renovation. This raised the ire of conservative Amarr, especially the Kador and Ardishapur families. Uriam Kador openly attacked the Tash-Murkon's status as an heir family as a result of Catiz's plans.
The controversy became so widespread that Emperor Doriam II took notice.He shocked everyone involved by claiming the cathedral as his personal property, which caused many to believe he was taking too active a role in domestic politics. The controversy only intensified once Doriam II announced his plans to relocate the cathedral to Amarr Prime.
The cathedral was disassembled and began being transported to Amarr Prime, with pod pilots assisting along the way. Several of the transports were attacked by pod pilots working under the direction of the Tash-Murkon Family, resulting in the loss of parts of the cathedral. Officials downplayed the losses, saying the missing pieces would be "hardly noticeable".
Despite the trouble, the cathedral was completely transported on July 6th, YC106.
