*** That “AlternateHistory” theory seems more like a WMG that canon, as there’s nothing in-universe that suggest such a thing, especially not in taking to account the prequel series YoungIndianaJonesChronicles that clearly happens in our history.

** If worth something, I thing one of the (crazy) Nazi theories is that modern Jews are descendants of converted Khazars and that the ancient Israelites were Aryans or something like that, therefore, an “Israelite Rite” wouldn’t be entirely contradictory to Nazis, at least not for those that held that believe.

*** The theological doctrine that says Jews are still the Chosen People alongside Christians is known as Dual-covenant theology and is follow mostly by Evangelical Christians, especially in America, whilst the doctrine that Jews are no longer the Chosen People and only Christians are known as Supersessionism is offical of the Catholic Church, Orthodox Church and most of the European Protestan Churches. As such is not a matter of the 30s or just Catholic, here in Europe is much more common that position.

***This idea is the oficial doctrine of both Catholic and Orthodox churches and several Protestant churches, I don't think they're anti-Semitic for that.

** According to the {{Novelization}}, Belloq called ahead and spoke to a German officer named Captain Mohler (a character identified in the credits as "Tall Captain"). In return for speaking favorably of him to Hitler later on, Belloq tasks Mohler with setting everything up and acquiring the Jewish ceremonial robes and such. This is where they came from. It may not be canon, but it's ''an'' explanation.

** Seriously that thing is bloody dangerous. The Israelites treat it like it's made of uranium and ''they'' are the rightful owners! The Ark was once captured by the Philistines. After wrecking havoc in their temple it is abandoned outside the nearest Israelite settlement. When the inhabitants discover it they establish a protective cordon and send a frantic message for Priests and Levites to take charge of it.

* Why did the US goverment put the Ark in storage instead of studying it? Were they disbelieving of it's power or simply GenreSavvy and not fool with powers beyond them.

** The impression I got was that ''bureaucracy'' saved the day: the vaunted 'military applications' of the Ark were misfiled, the Ark forgotten, and [[StatusQuoIsGod the Ark had no further effect on history.]]






** The Nazis were dead, but the area they died in was far away from the Uboat docks. So he just simply trekked to the docks and stole a free Uboat.

*** Even if you just sailed them on the surface, U-boats weren't one person craft. Most likely he found a radio, sent out an S.O.S. and the two were picked up by a merchant or fishing vessel.

* Okay, so, the first ten minutes. What kind of archeologist would care about a stupid little gold statue when he's in a temple with loads of fully-functional death traps? Seriously, consider the ingenuity required for that whole "displaced weight equals rolling boulder" trap!

to:

** In the original script, the translator says the length of the staff is supposed to be "ten jamir ... and add one." The staff is still way too large (Indy's conversion of "ten jamir" is "seventy-five inches"), but the plot point there is that Belloq's staff was too ''short''. Presumably there's also additional text saying to double the length of the staff (which goes along with the text Indy was consulting to figure out which slot to place the staff in).
