Re: For Glen Cook, demise of the Templars???


>Please clarify where John Robinson, in Dungeon Fire and Sword cites any

Yes, the citation is in the text I quoted, of a papal proclamation of 1319.
This would appear to be the Bull Ad ea ex quibus of Pope John XXII,
given at Avignon 14/15 March 1319:


As I asked in a previous message,
Latin scholars among us: translation, please.

I have repeatedly claimed that the Catholic encyclopedia cites primary
sources, specifically the above-cited papal Bull.  You now have the
text of it available to you.  Please provide arguments as to how it
does or does not agree with what the Catholic Encyclopedia says.

Actually, Tim, you dragged him into this.  As I have quoted twice in the
last few days, your previous review of his book said:
 ``His 'Dungeon, Fire and Sword' is, quite frankly, superb.''

What would you like the new wording of your review to be?
