And, of course, the special attention is paying on some of them. That is because the role of art in human’s life is vital.

The crave of the truth 

When you are confident in the correctness of your actions and in the sanctity of your endeavors, nothing can stop you from reaching The Goal. Even if you have to kill to achieve it. That’s the idea that clearly explains the behavior of Silas, who was thinking he is doing ‘the will of God’. It explains the importance of taking someone else’s opinion into consideration.

The protection of ‘truth’ or their ‘greatest sanctuary’ makes people to suffer for their own or even to sacrifice their life for the holy purpose. Nevertheless, the main goal was achieved: fraternity’s secret was protected as well as purity of sénéchaux and curator souls.
