A variant of this could be a small sect that holds that the Talars and Zzaburs owned nothing but had merely the right to use that which was necessary. An ancient hero "took" items that had been improperly possessed by corrupt Talars or Zzaburs, used them for the good of Malkion and then returned the items to the Faithful.

Such a Saint could even be mainstream (albeit minor) with a heretical version followed by angry mobs of the poor who sack rich estates and churches in order to "return" their improperly possessed items to the people (ie the ransacking mob).
