From Silver Sun Republic Codex

Although the Church of Requesta is not considered a formal Ministry, it does exercise its own degree of autonomy and integration into the government of the Republic. Bishops are typically granted seats in the Signoria via the Curia as Nobile Spiritual.

Subordinate to Bishops are Priests in the religious structure of the Silver Sun. Bishops may also employ Heralds and Clerks to help maintain their parishes.
