The Lyeshans were mentioned in the last few SR's in my section.  Who are they?

A sect that claims that St. Lyesha is actually a goddess. They originated in Rohrmarch or thereabouts, but where forced to leave because of the changing political situation. They eventually ended up in the Berendor Valley and (fairly recently) were taken into the IHH.

AFAIK they have also been prosecuted as heretics in the past. I have no idea if that was well deserved or not.

St. Lyesha was who?  Is this in any of the documentation (if so, I could read that myself and save people the trouble of explaining it)?

Edit:  Thanks to Brandon for directing me to some info on Lyesha as a goddess.

They sure are. You can't go around making up new gods. It's simply not proper...
