Question: Is there any actual historical evidence that the Gypsies were persecuted during the time the film was set? In my study of world history I don't recall any major event when there was a mass persecution of Gypsies. Also, could this film have been set at the time when the Inquisition was at its height? This might make a lot more sense.
Question: I was wondering why of all the orders of the Roman Catholic Clergy that an Archdeacon is the main caretaker of Notre Dame. Archdeacons are a rare order of Roman Catholic Clergy even during those times. Notre Dame is a cathedral, right? So why doesn't it have its own Bishop/Archbishop/Cardinal? Where was he? I highly doubt that an Archdeacon would exercise that much authority on a Judge like Frollo thereby bypassing that of a higher order such as a Bishop who is supposed to be the central administrator of Notre Dame.
