Organized Christianity in Mexica had originally stood separate, in an institutional sense, for centuries following the Aztec Empire's conversion from paganism. In the 16th century the Aztec Church had acknowledged the Azorean Rite and the supremacy of the Roman Papacy in a political marriage of convienence. Faced, however, with evidence of Papal perfidy against the Empire during the War of the Aztec Succession, the Emperor Kulhuz Tlakotani broke with the Roman Church in and around 1660 A.D., appointing his own patriarch and reestablishing the Aztec Catholic Church as a separate entity. It is assumed doctrine and dogma are very similar to that of the Roman Church.
