Agenda: History’s Backbone

The “Agenda” is basic to all others and supplies the history, the time line and calendar of the whole seven year’s period from Easter 1245 to Holy Friday 1252. Some decisive dates will be pointed at as the 7 year’s period comes to an end. Examples are the birth of Conradin, the last direct heir of the House of Hohenstaufen. And a second example points to future events: The papal bull “Ad exstirpandam” promulgated on Wednesday, May 15, 1252, by Pope Innocentius IV., in which he authorized in limited and defined circumstances the use of torture by the inquisition.
