* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Pretty much the only thing the film version gets right about the historical Bernardo Gui is that he was an Inquisitor during the fourteenth century. While Gui did convict large numbers of heretics during his tenure, only about five percent of them were executed; he far preferred to prove heresies wrong and bring heretics back into the church than to kill them, and he was always more of a scholar and administrator than a zealot. He's less of a cackling arch-villain in the novel, but not by much.
