Failure to do so may result in investigation by the Inquisition. You have been warned. Is the Codex Imperialis heresy? The Codex Imperialis reorganises the Imperium of Man’s political and socioeconomic institutions so as to restore the Emperor of Mankind’s original designs. It also lays out the the Imperiums history accurately with no propaganda or religious doctrine. Would the ecclesiarchy find this heretical and if so what could they do about it?

I mean they’ve coedx millenia building up the edifice of the Holy Emperor and his divine Imperium, but now Guilli’s coming in to sweep that all away. Will they let him?

If RG is at least a bit imperialks, the CI complements the divine view and very carefululy lies down a fundation for little changes in the next few hundred years. This is most likely one of the reason they brought him back instead of another beyond obvious reasons One of his brothers would have simply flattened the Ecclesiarchy codec an institution against imperialos imperial truth.

I agree entirely, everyone should just blindly follow a Primarch. Absolutely nothing can go wrong. Omperialis it galls me to say this as I’m not particularly a fan of guilliman and his ultra Smurfs. He knows his “father” hated the notion of him being revered as a God but destroying the religion would cause a galaxy spanning civil war.

He doesn’t like it, but he needs to use them. That makes me believe he will stay far from publicly voicing things that could be seen as heresy. That being said I’d love to see a plot against him where someon tries to frame him for heresy. RG is a primarch.

Given that ALL loyal marines feel an inherent need to obey a primarch According to the fluff, at leastI’d like to see the Adeptus Ministorum try to force RG to comply to their wishes. That is, I think, a bit overstated, and they are quite capable of resisting that compulsion- see: Space Marines, like other mortals, feel a psychic pressure to obey but can overcome that through willpower or disagreement.


This is also why some Chapters are resisting Primaris reinforcement despite being more or less ordered to take them. Lore-wise they can simply stalemate Guilliman’s political efforts: You don’t have to physically kill or even arrest Guilliman to remove him from power: And it’s already happening, even without someone orchestrating a coordinated opposition: And there’s already plenty of spontaneous resistance to Guilliman’s orders and reforms.

If he overxtend and changes too much in a too short timeframe much more people will start opposing him, someone will try to act as a grey eminence coordinating opposition from behind the scenes and all his reforms will be slowed down to a crawl Yes, and they’re probably going to do everything they can to edit it or deliver it with wording that still praises the Emperor as divine.

Considering how the Imperium works and how dumb they can get, I can guess there would be some bits of friction at least. Like a bunch of the other folks here, I think that they’re setting up an internal schism between the Oldperium and Rowboat’s Vaguely Kinder and Gentler Imperium.

In the New Imperium of Guilliman you will not have to fear!

We will not casually murder you, unless obviously you’re a traitor or a mutant or a xeno supporter! Yeah, but that’s the same thing Old Imperium recruiting guy is saying over there.

Like, the very same line I guess it’s similar to the start of Christianity? New Testament vs old. It could have some interesting ramifications with the fluff. Girlyshorts being the emperors son and all.

The New and Old Testaments didn’t come into existence as separate books until after the advent of the printing press. Originally it was transcribed as a single text with a single narrative.

Codex Imperialis (Warhammer 40,) by Andy Chambers

This original text of the Bible was recanonized and divided into two volumes. This was done because it was near impossible to print a book the size of the original single book plus it allowed the book to be separated into two different narratives which in turn made it far easier to proselytize and teach to the rest of the heathen world.

Once upon a time there was a War Leader of the Imperium. Some called him Warmaster, and others called him the Lord Commander. In either case, he commanded, and others followed. If Guilliman claims he speaks with the Emperor’s authority, it can’t, by definition, be heresy. That said, the entrenched power structure is going to feel threatened, so they may call it heresy.

This is actually very interesting as it could start an Imperial Civil War between the Ecchclesiarchy and Guilliman. Everything the modern Imperial Faith is founded on is a lie, and they are not going to relinquish power even to a Primarch. More so the Emperor founded the Imperial Truth to ward against Chaos, disbelief to weaken them.


Ironically the worship of the Emporer as a god is what worked in the end. If this is severed could it actually strengthen the Choas gods if these two beliefs rekindle and clash? Most likely, and they’re probably going to do everything they can to edit it or deliver it with wording that still praises the Emperor as divine.

One of those nine did kinda write the ecclesiarchy’s holy book I really hope there will be a few books that heavily feature political intrigue. Does this answer your question?
