The Ondaran Order starts to come together at the end of the dark ages, just prior to the homogenization of the elves. The first god they Break is dwarven – it’s part of why the dwarven mages lose their power, and succumb to the elves. As they die, the dwarves create a magical plague as a last-ditch survival effort that allows some of the dwarves to get away.

Coming out of the dark ages, arcane magic is just being rediscovered; but divine magic has been around all along. Among the dwarves, the clerics were leading the way to the rediscovery of the arcane.
