    Pan Breed and gcreptile had him, as did I. His specific date of death hasn't yet been given. Could be some daily double possibilities if he died on either January 13th or 15th.

    From Cleric To Relic

    Yes, as I regularly check the Wikipedia deathlist and post cleric deaths in the thread. I can tell you from experience this is a disproportionate number of Roman Catholic prelates to die in the given time frame. As a specific example, December had 16 such deaths, or about one every two days. This is about twice the rate, nearly one per day.
