comment What is the relevance of the Confession of Augsburg to the Colloquy at Poissy?
he declared his own "Confutation" to be sufficient: "...the official response known as the Pontifical Confutation of the Augsburg Confession was produced to the Diet, though the document was so poorly prepared that the document was never published for widespread distribution, nor presented to the Lutherans at the Diet. However, in September, Charles V declared the response to be sufficient..."

According to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confession_of_Augsburg, Karl V responded to the Augsburg Confession by the "Pontifical Confutation of the Augsburg Confession" and "gave the Lutheran princes until April 15, 1531, to respond to the demands of the Confutation", so it doesn't seem he "agreed to disagree".

comment What was the reason for inflation in Britain after the Black Death?
It's not clear to me why the nobles were relatively worse off (although it is possible). Also, it's not entirely clearly why the relative situation is important

OK, but I want more factual details. Who was behind the declaration? Which enemies they were afraid of? etc.

I didn't understand "The admissions criteria and payments were set by the respective sponsors". Doesn't the university determine its own admission criteria?

comment Which 11 countries were democratic in 1941?
This index is pretty absurd though, for example Greece, France, Italy, Israel, Slovakia, Poland, India, Hungary are "flawed democracies"

@Noldorin: Demand is by definition the number of labourers hired at a given price. This can only decrease since there are less consumbers. This quantity doesn't depend on the number of labourers

@Lev: so the landowners paid more for the labourers to work harder (cultivate more land / labourer), but they also ripped more benefits (more land / landowner)

Nominal inflation makes sense, but I still don't understand why the nobles were complaining. Since there were less nobles, each of them had more land and more money, which should completely offset the other effect.
