This is the emblem of the Franciscan Order. Francois Rabelais’ early life

  4. The Pantagruel was a book published in 1523 by Francois Rabelais. It was a continuation of the anonymous popular work known as the Chronicles of the Giant Gargantua(also publishedin 1532).

  5. Francois Rabelais published two continuations of the Pantagruel after it was condemned for obscenity. In 1534, Francois published the Gargantua, which was a prequel to the Pantagruel. This book introduces a monk named Frere Jean who does things not approved by the church. This was also later condemned by the Sorbonne. In 1546, Rabelais published a third book which was in two parts. The Sorbonne condemned this for heresy.
