Yoda Found in 14th-Century Manuscript

    Seems the force has been around much longer than we thought.  One might think some time traveling artist included the Yoda like figure to screw with us. The 14th-century script tells the tale of biblical Samson.

    The Yoda image comes from a 14th-century manuscript known as the Smithfield Decretals,”

    The volume is also known as “The Decretals of Gregory IX with gloss of Bernard of Parma,” and it was created in southern France between 1300 and 1340. Decretals, we learned today, are collections of papal letters that compiled decisions (decrees) on church law and doctrine.
