I'm still not clear on this bk's title: how exactly does it apply to the plot and setting of this narrative? Anyone?

George It's tenuous at best. Somewhere about the middle of the book the point-of-view (Devlin, I think) wonders why, if they believe in their divine right, Catholic kings have confessors, given that whatever they do must be authorized by God--but comes to no conclusion.

Note also that in Ch. 56 someone does confess a crime to Lord Devlin. However, the epigraph from Prov. 28:13 can hardly be said to apply.

As I say, it's tenuous.
