by Don Bellew
An English translation from medieval French, this being the final section of a diary or memoir discovered in 1892 in the antique document division of a privately owned library in Lisbon. The original book is a leather-bound set of parchments dating to the late fourteenth century. The apparent author, Ignatius of Treylaine, is titled as signifies a retired or reclusive priest. First translation was done in 1918 into modern Portuguese. This version was made from the original and does not fully agree with the previous interpretation.
