William of Paris (inquisitor)
William composed the Diologus de Septem Sacramentis at the Priory of St. Jacques in Paris between 1310 and 1314.
He was made inquisitor of France in 1303, and began a campaign against the Templars in 1307. The arrest of the Templars led to Pope Clement V to suspend William's powers after a complaint from Edward II of England, but King Phillip's "bold and comtemptuous" written reply caused the Pope to back down and re-instate William.
