Pope Paul III absolves François Rabelais of charges of apostasy, thus allowing him to resume practicing medicine in Montpellier.

Rabelais's first two books, Pantagruel and Gargantua, have been condemned by academics at the Sorbonne because they express rather unorthodox ideas regarding the Catholic Church.

It's only been because one of his close friends is Cardinal Jean du Bellay, the bishop of Paris, that he's been protected so far.
