Sur la Pont Avignon! A bustling, exciting, hectic, wonderful place
Avignon was the setting for the Babylonian Captivity, a the RC Church called it, and the Great Schism in the 14th century, all of which providentially we means of protecting John Wycliffe and others. It was a tough sell to claim papal supremacy when rival popes were excommunicating (damning to hell) each other and claiming the other guy(s) we heretics not vicars of Christ. What a mess!
