The Church of Glabados, also known as Murond Glabados Church is a religious organization from Final Fantasy Tactics. Formed soon after the fall of Mullonde, the center of Pharism, it centers around a so-called divine figure named Saint Ajora Glabados.
The Church of Glabados began as a small group of families who witnessed the first "miracle" of Saint Ajora; as soon as he was born, he rose to his feet and proclaimed that a well was tainted. Those who drank from the well died soon after, and those who overheard his prophecy was quick to proclaim him a miracle and child of the gods.
When he reached twenty, Saint Ajora began to spread the word of the coming of Paradise. Pharist priests fearing that his influence was growing, quickly tried him as a traitor to the Holy Ydoran Empire and had him hanged. His death soon became the doom of Pharism and the Empire as both were decimated in a terrifying cataclysm.
Those who had faith in Saint Ajora then preached upon his divinity, and soon after, the Church of Glabados was formed.
However, the Church of Glabados then turns out to be corrupt. Not only is its founder, Saint Ajora Glabados, not who the church claims he is, but he is in fact possessed by the Lucavi demon, Ultima, although few in the church actually know this. Its leader at the time of the War of the Lions is High Confessor Marcel Funebris, who is seeking to gain additional power for the church by having the Order of the Northern Sky and Order of the Southern Sky weaken each other to create a power vacuum for the Church of Glabados to fill. He is unaware that the Knights Templar, led by Folmarv Tengille are possessed by the Lucavi and are planning to resurrect Ultima. Even Funebris' second-in-command, Cardinal Delacroix is in on the Lucavi plot.
When Ramza Beoulve discovers what the Church of Glabados is up to, they label him as a heretic in an effort to get rid of him. This gives the Knights Templar greater freedom to impede Ramza's efforts to stop the Lucavi. Eventually, the Lucavi progress so far that the High Confessor is no longer use to them, and then he is killed by Loffrey with Folmarv and Cletienne Duroi looking on. The Church of Glabados survives the downfall of Ultima by preventing the publishing of the Durai Papers. This report is later discovered by Arazlam Durai, a descendant of its writer Orran Durai, although it is not revealed what he does with his knowledge of the truth.
