Protestants believed marriage was between the couple who considered themselves married and God and supported the act of divorce if it was necessary. Catholics supported arranged marriages and did not believe in divorce. The author speculates that Bertrande and the impostor, Arnaud, converted to the Protestant faith. Do you think the Protestant views had any effect on Bertrande's and the impostor's beliefs about marriage? Do you think they felt the religion absolved them of guilt?
The author writes about Judge Jean de Coras' feelings about Arnaud du Tihl, stating "There was something not only profoundly wrong but also profoundly right about the invented marriage of the new Martin and Bertrande de Rols." What do you think of this statement? We know how it was wrong, but how was it right? Do you agree with Coras' feelings?
Roman law in the sixteenth century stated, "It is better to leave unpunished a guilty man than to condemn an innocent man." What does this mean? How does this law apply to the impostor, Arnaud?
