    Sources for the decrees of Pope Innocent II

    I apologize for asking for sources, generally I refrain from doing this, but I can't seem to find the documents I want. Do you people know where I can find all of Pope Innocent II's decrees, even those relating to the Second Council of the Lateran (1139)?

    Gilles de Rais: Innocent???

    I recently came across a theory that Gilles de Rais is innocent of the many child murder crimes of which he was accused. The main theory seems to be that the man who ordered his prosecution the Duke of Brittany inherited all his lands upon his death. No children's bodies where found in his...

    1 innocent person in jail vs. 1000 criminals being free

    It's a common saying "Rather 1000 criminals free than one innocent people in jail". I understand the sentiment. We don't want our government invading too much of our personal freedoms. From a utilitarian perspective: Free the criminals - Many people get hurt Leave as is - 1 person gets hurt

    What can be done that will prevent deaths of innocent kids like Aylan Kurdi ?

    The image of the ill fated child Aylan Kurdi has rocked the conscience of the entire civilised world---at least of those who were able to see that mind searing image on TV or the newspapers or the internet---I am sure. Poor little kid---all dressed up neatly and hopefully by the luckless...

    How innocent was the Wehrmacht?

    In many histories concerning operations on the Eastern Front during WWII the war crimes committed in that theater are often blamed on the S.S., the einstazgruppen or various other organizations. How close is that to the truth? Personally, I've always had my doubts it was the "evil empire" that...
