Organized by Grand Cardinal Crassus Alvaro in 27PR, a grand pyre was set alight, destroying over four thousand so-called "incendiary" works. The grand cardinal initially called the display "the Brightest Light", and it was considered a resounding success by the Itreyan clergy. That is, until it was pointed about by Crassus's son, Cardinal Leo Alvaro, that there was no light in all creation brighter than that of the God of Light himself, and that naming any man-made bonfire to the contrary was, in fact, heresy.

After the grand cardinal's crucifixion, Grand Cardinal Alvaro II decreed the pyre should be referred to as "the Bright Light" in text thereafter.
