History[edit]

Writ of Union[edit]

The Ministry of Abnegation was formed around the time the Writ of Union was formed. Under the terms of the Union the Ascetics were dissolved and reconstituted under the then-newly formed Ministry, where for centuries the Ascetics served.[1]

Great Schism[edit]

Following the demise of the Covenant and its ministries during the Great Schism, the Ascetics were revived as an independent order by Sangheili warriors.[1]

Trivia[edit]

Abnegation to deny or renounce something, which fits with the Asceticism's role of self-denial.
