The 18th Conclusion

Item. It is no better for laymen to say the pater noster than to say “bibull babull” Conclusion no.18 of The 18 Conclusions of the pre–destined men

The pre-destined men were a medieval sect who believed that man’s destiny — and salvation — was pre-ordained by God. Priestly intercession was therefore completely unnecessary. I had a teenage friend whose evangelical church preached the same thing.

Apparently the 18 Conclusions can be found in a manuscript in the British Library.
