But when you think of all the innocent people including children he had burned as suspected Deryni, you can hardly consider him a saint, more like a devil in saint's clothing
"Thanks be to God there are still, as there always have been and always will be, more good men than evil in this world, and their cause will prevail." Brother Cadfael's Penance

I don't think he's a saint but I do see how he could be considered one.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
(Psalm 46 v1)

Far in the southern reaches of Gwynedd, in the villages around the ruins of New Argoed, the harassment begins against the Deryni.

Minor incidents at first. Small groups of men looking for information of the accursed devil's spawn known as the Deryni. These men call themselves the Brothers of Saint William.

Under this New Willimite banner the movement grows slowly but surely among the old human families in the south. And their range begins to expand.

Meanwhile, another band of New Willites springs up around the border city of Rengarth. Harassing travelers and villages looking for rouge Deryni and Deryni spies.

These New Willimite bands target the Deryni and anyone who defends them. Bullying, increased taxes, extortion, and the breaking of a few bones. All are tools that are put to use.

It takes months before the word of the rise of Willimite activity reaches the ears of King Kelson in far away Rhemuth. And most dismiss them as only rumors and ghost stories given the past histories of the locations that the reports are coming from. Nothing seriously is done about it when the reports begin to come in.

But by then, things are getting worse.

Actually it dates back to the Priesting of Arlin. This is when the Camberian Council discovered that the Church was using special wine for ordinations that was laced with merasha.

The Camberian Council managed to switch the wine at the last moment for Duncan's ordination.

Bishop Arlin used his own wine for ordaining priests and ordained a Deryni or two before this time.

And slowly from there it has been "weeded out" but not fully purged until after the events of The Histories of King Kelson and the overturning of the Statues of Ramos.

I know about the merasha, I was simply playing on the Dhassa-wine-is-nasty joke (thus the pretend cough). My joke seems to have fallen flat. ;)

Rogue Deryni, or it's attacking makeup or attacking Communism.

I'm sorry, but I don't get it. Anyone willing to sketch a roadmap on a bar napkin?
