(p.164) 6. Patriarch
A Hound of God

Jean Dunbabin

Oxford University Press

While he was at Avignon, on March 27 1329, Pierre was appointed Patriarch of Jerusalem, a venerable title of high prestige. The deciding factor in Pierre's acceptance was the hope, current in the second half of the 1320s, that the Mameluk sultan of Egypt, al-Nazir Muhammed, might negotiate a settlement with the Latins permitting them to return to Palestine. When Pierre became patriarch, the prospect was entertained in Avignon of his restoration to the see in Jerusalem and his consequent government of the Latin Church throughout Outremer. He was allowed to celebrate mass everywhere and to dispense in cases of secret baptisms or other sacraments conducted without due ceremony. The second section of this chapter describes the plans for the Crusade and Other Business, after Pierre halted at Avignon to give Pope John his report concluding that war was the only remaining means of recovering the Holy Land.
