Yes, I understand that part of it. I'm not implying there is a conspiracy here. I just find it interesting that many of his most famous buildings never would have even come to fruition if the fire hadn't happened. Including the church that HAL has indicated holds importance.

It does but what i don't get is why the Templars and London? Although the last to do so, even the English turned against the Templars (although that was to do with raising cash for more wars against France rather than the threat of excommunication - we always seem to have been rather aloof about those threats!).
Actually, that raises another interesting question when you consider Templar history / mythology. Why were the English the only nation in Europe at the time that never really bothered with threats of excommunication? At the time, that was about the worst thing that could happen to someone but wherever there are accounts of the English being threatened with it, they basically stuck two fingers up to Rome.
