Roman Tribunal: summer 1203- the Interdict of Venice

In 1202, following the crusader's attack on Zara, Pope Innocent III placed Venice under excommunication (Interdict), though the news was muted by the fact he excommunicated the crusaders of the 4th crusade at the same time. While the excommunication against non-Venetian crusaders has since been lifted the city remains under interdict, and the receding Dominion aura is leaving discoveries in its wake, which a variety of chapter houses are discovering. At the same time Guernicus investigators have discovered evidence that a variety of covenants or individual magi may have been involved in the diversion of the crusade to Zara and towards Constantinople. Power dynamics within the city have become agitated, the echoes of which resonate through the tribunal.
