Sauniere was found guilty of all three indictments.
This is fact and not "opinion" - Eric Tull has not read the indictments against Sauniere by the Carcassonne Bishopric and is only guessing.
Read the book by Rene Descadeillas.
Read the book by Jean-Jacques Bedu.
Read the book by Jacques Riviere.
All of these authors disagree with you Smith in some aspect of this story.
He was told to move out of the presbytery on 1st Feb 1909. The villagers wanted him to remain.
So Sauniere resigned as parish priest of Rennes-le-Chateau and became a Free Priest: Priest without a parish and remained unofficially as a priest at Rennes-le-Chateau.
He already was a free priest from 1905 shortly after his brother died actually.
>>He therefore was no longer bound to go through any Ecclesiastical
>>court. Whatever sentence they imposed on him was purely academic.
Sauniere faced Trial with the ecclesiastical Court of Carcassonne in 1910-1911 and was interdicted as priest on 5 December 1911.
Except he wasn't a Priest at this point. Sauniere had resigned however there is some doubt as to whether this was accepted or not.
Sauniere was a Free Priest at this point. Already explained.
We agree, must lie down. However YOU'VE got the date wrong.
>>He could not comply with the tribunal's demands because he did not
>>have any records to produce.
Laughable rubbish! Sauniere denied to the Tribunal that he kept records, but his records for selling masses are in the possession of Antoine Captier, who inherited Sauniere's archives that Marie Denarnaud retained.
He denied to the court that he had kept ADEQUATE records. Sufficient to explain all his expenditure. Which is of course correct as he was getting money from donations which he wasn't prepared to divulge.
Yes and they are here
As you can see they're peanuts.
Octonovo's records are incomplete. The material on his website represents remnants of the actual selling of masses that Sauniere was engaging in. It is an incomplete record and nobody is claiming otherwise.
It would have been literally IMPOSSIBLE for Sauniere to have recorded all the money he was receiving - as demonstrated by Bedu.
I love the way you simply dismiss evidence that doesn't fit your agenda.
You're a fake Smith and very very transparent.

See the comments by Jean-Jacques Bedu above - Sauniere committed himself into accepting more masses than he was able to say - thus engaging in outright fraud.
But they didn't do him for fraud did they? Why Not?
The whole case revolves around the fact that the church wanted to know from where he was getting his money and he wasn't going to tell them. The masses thing is their best shot at an explantion which has been proven to be nonsense.

They wanted to know where he was getting his money from that's all and the only thing they could come up with was that he must be selling masses. But as you can see here
WRONG - The Carcassonne Bishopric KNEW that Sauniere was obtaining his money from the illegal selling of masses and they compiled a dossier on the matter. Here are some more examples, from letters to Sauniere:
*‘I’m enclosing the sum of two hundred and fifty francs, amounting to two hundred and fifty separate fees for masses at 1 franc each, 124 of them to be said for our deceased sisters.’ (Clair Corbu and Antoine Captier, ‘L’héritage de l’abbé Saunière’, p182)
*‘I’m enclosing a postal order for 45 francs for 30 masses which I would like you to say subsequent to those that I requested from you on 1 August: I commend especially to your prayers my dear little soldier and my poor husband.’ (Clair Corbu and Antoine Captier, ‘L’héritage de l’abbé Saunière’, p184)
*From Sister Thault: ‘Having once again some masses to distribute for our Reverend Mother, I have the honour of enclosing a new postal order for 16 francs for masses to be said on behalf of this dear departed. She was always happy to send on to you those that Sister Eulalie entrusted to her for you.’ (Pierre Jarnac, ‘Histoire du trésor…’ p340)
It was all fantasy on their part. These were trumped up charges, they were trying to put pressure on him to divulge his sources and he simply wasn't going to tell them. He'd probably seen what had happened to Gellis.

What's your comment on Boudet's own accounts which actually says he gave away precisely 3,679,431 francs?
Fantasy invention created by Pierre Plantard.
This rubbish was exposed decades ago.
Oh right. The old 'Plantard dunnit' gambit again. Zero evidence to support the proposition forthcoming.
