Chapter Summary

Doat 25-26 is a copy of a medieval text preserved by the Dominicans in Toulouse called 'the sixth register'. The analyses presented in this chapter take as their starting-points some of the precise features of this 'sixth register'. The 'sixth register' was itself a selection and re-arrangement of texts originally contained in one or several earlier and fuller registers. Inquiring about the alleged blasphemies of Bernard of Souillac of Montauban, Pons of Parnac sought help from Raymond, the prior of the local Dominican convent. Deponents of the Doat 25-26 depositions were questioned and brought to trial in several different ways. In 73 out of 101 cases a witness was summoned to provide information on themselves and others. The inquisitor Pons of Parnac clearly considered it to be of great importance that each deposition should be properly witnessed and taken down in due form by a public notary.
