Corrected entry: The inquisitor Bernardo Gui is portrayed in a more sinister light here than he really seemed to be: a) he was a more 'moderate' inquisitor (of 900 sentences, most were imprisonment and only 42 deaths); b) he did not die by the hands of a violent mob in Italy; he passed away peacefully in a Lauroux abbey in 1331.
Corrected entry: Knitting was not practiced yet in the Middle Ages. Undoing one's coat was not possible and so the trick to find a way through the maze could not have been performed.
