Medieval Monk He Was

Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there lived a little green Jedi Master. He trained young Luke Skywalker to become a Jedi and overthrow the Empire and Darth Vader.

The little green master was Yoda.

This guy.

As we all know, this is from George Lucas’s Star Wars series.

Yoda is easily the 3rd most popular character from that series – after Han Solo and Chewbacca of course.

But so far everyone thought that he was nothing but a fictional character.

Well, not any more.

He has turned all medieval on our asses.

While digitally archiving some medieval religious texts, historians and museum curators stumbled across Yoda in a manuscript.

The manuscripts are popularly called the Smithfield Decretals. Decretals are collections of papal letters that compiled decisions (decrees) on church law and doctrine.

The full name of the volume is known as “The Decretals of Gregory IX with gloss of Bernard of Parma,” .

Historians believe that the manuscript was created in southern France between 1300 and 1340.

In Star Wars canon Yoda is supposed to be around 700 years old.

Do the maths.

There can be only 2 explanations

1. Yoda was the original Terminator – sent from the future to the past to alter the future through his actions.

2.
