Note 086
From Chapter 59 of the Decline & Fall

To those who took the cross against Mainfroy, the pope (A.D. 1255) granted

plenissimam peccatorum remissionem. Fideles mirabantur quòd tantum eis promitteret pro sanguine Christianorum effundendo quantum pro cruore infidelium aliquando (Matthew Paris p. 785).

A high flight for the reason of the 13th century.
