The Eshandist Heresy was a dispute by the people in Rendor as to the management of the Church. The Eshandists believed in the doctrine of the Church of Chyrellos. They did not believe in the Hierarchy believing that the local priest should have the authority of their flock. It arose with a Sheep herder named Eshand a prophet who believed that "God" had spoken to him and had denouced the patriarchy of the church of Chyrellos much like Astel, Darconia and Edom in the Tamul Empire did.
