1636: The Vatican Sanction Reviews

  • Margaret
    The 1632 alternate history series also contains some "series-within-the-series" or "continuing storyline threads" such as the Pope Urban VIII thread, first seen in 1634: The Galileo Affair (2004). This first book was then followed by 1635: The Cannon Law (2006), 1635: The Papal Stakes (2012), and th...

    1636: The Vatican Sanction seems to be the final volume in the Italian Arc of Ring of Fire novels. That series of stories, which started with 1634: The Galileo Conspiracy has focused on the up-timers interactions with the Papacy (in the form of Urban VII) and their efforts to push for moderation in ...

    What I have liked about the Ring of Fire stories is how the most important thing that the people sent back in time have are new ideas. The ideas of freedom, especially religious freedom, is an odd fit in the midst of the 30-year war. And I've been impressed that, once started into a best-selling ser...

    I started reading the eARC of 1636 The Vatican Sanction 40 days ago, with a 1.5 day break to enjoy the Liaden series "Neogenesis" eARC.

Unfortunately, he is also being hunted by assassins, which further complic...

    Reading this took much longer than I envisioned. Audiobooks and e-books have spoiled me with the ability to read everywhere in small doses, but my life doesn't blend easily with lugging around a hardcover book.That's not the only reason I've taken so long to finish it, however. I'd looked forward to...

    1636: The Vatican Sanction is the latest (at least, as I type this) installment in the “South European thread” in Eric Flint’s “shared universe” Ring of Fire series, preceded by 1634: The Galileo Affair (April 2004) with Andrew Dennis, 1635: The Cannon Law (September 2006), ...

    The pope is Urban VIII, but a Barberini who has transformed into a more human man than he was before. The loyalist cardinals have convened in Besancon along with Protestant, Orthodox, and Jewish representatives to discuss a more civilised relationship among the faiths, especially with the oncoming t...
