Aude

 

a department in southern France, on the Gulf of Lions of the Mediterranean Sea. Area, 6,300 sq km. Population, 276,000 (1973). Its administrative center is Carcassonne.

Most of the area is occupied by the Lower Languedoc Lowland, through which flows the Southern Canal. In the southern part of the department are the foothills of the Pyrenees, known as the Corbières Mountains, rising to 1,231 m. In 1968, 31 percent of the gainfully employed population was engaged in agriculture and 14 percent in industry. Viticulture accounts for two-thirds of the income from agriculture, and vegetables, fruit, and grain are also grown. Cattle and sheep are raised in the mountains. The principal industries are food processing (especially wineries), leather tanning, and the production of clothing and packaging material. Aude has seaside climatic resorts, of which the most famous is Narbonne.

Mr Aude wrote his post after he discovered the FAA's Airworthiness Directive on PPRUNE, forums (Professional Pilots Rumour Network, an aviation website for airline pilots and aviation buffs).
When she was called back to confirm her testimony two days later, Aude clarified that she had fallen into error immediately after she took Communion without a full confession and amended the timing of her first Communion to the first (rather than the second) year after her marriage.
At this point, the case seemed ready for closure: the sin, whatever it was, had been duly confessed, and Aude had been cured of her disbelief, with all parties vigorously professing their once and future orthodoxy.
We have no clear indication of what caused Aude to change her story, since all the details in her initial account lined up perfectly.
Three days later, on July 24, Aude was called in to confirm her new testimony, and either she or her inquisitorial amanuensis amended the account to change the moment at which error "touched" her: "this thought of uncleanliness occurred to her [only] when the body of Christ was elevated, and she could not believe that the body of the Lord was there on the altar, nor could she herself pray or contemplate well, since she was impeded by that aforementioned thought and many other thoughts which occurred to her during the said elevation." (23) In any case, according to this new story, Aude's combined experience of recollected childbirth and eucharistic celebration--not her unconfessed sin--had created the spiritual crisis that the Inquisition defined as "error" and diagnosed as "disbelief."
This is, of course, the episode that has given rise to most of the modern attempts to diagnose Aude with psychiatric disorders.
