  • Quotes

    • William: As newly appointed district sheriff, I've come to arrest Jack Jackson for the murder of Alfred Thomson.
      Philip: This cathedral stands on holy ground. No arrest can be made under the laws of sanctuary. Now take your men and your horses and leave.
      Waleran: Not so fast, good prior. The laws of sanctuary only apply to churches that have been dedicated and sanctified. You should know that. This church is not yet finished, so God's law has no power here. Seize him.
