Note: the Davidians are a sect of the Seventh-day Adventists. Its doctrines date back to 1929 while its headquarters at Mr. Carmel, Texas, on the outskirts of Waco, was established in 1935. Since 1959, when an end-of-the-world prophecy proofs to be falls, the Davidians have split up in many factions. The most well known is the Branch Davidian. Since David Koresh's death Livingstone Fagan (imprisoned for 40 years) has become David Koresh's spiritual successor. In 1997 Charles Pace took over leadership, renamed the group and started to reform its theology.
