Not the most action-packed of reads, but it offers a nice little window onto how spirituality in the 6th century was at the same time hugely different from today, but at the same time, somewhat similar in its ultimate cares and aims.

Induring a witchcraft trial at Natternberg near Metten Abbey in Bavaria, the accused women testified they had no power over Metten, which was under the protection of the cross. The Christian belief with the Catholic church as its ruler was, at this time, the only accepted and institutionalized religion in Europe.

In the same way, he should bear in mind for the infirmities of the needy, and not the bad will of the envious.
