As you seem to be a bit of a francophile, this shouldn't cause too much problem:

well I got espadrilles, but I am just double-checking that there is another French word used in English and of three syllables which rhymes with it?
Thanks for keeping this silly game going BTW :smile:

Espadrille is correct. The other word is Emma-compliant! :laughter:

Very happy to keep this game going - best word game on the forum!

I am getting despadrille about this one. Any more clues? BTW, not only am I not really francophone, and I would have probably been chided by Emma for using the word the other day when I just meant "French". Pride goeth before a fall (or, après l'orgueil la chute)

er no, sorry. For the "indulgences" aspect, remember the Catholic Church and a sin named after an individual (also the name of one of the Disciples)

couple more clues. Disciple's name was superseded when Jesus renamed him petrographically, while the surname of this indulgence dispenser was the title of a John Fowles novel

Thanks for that, because I was going down a "Iscariot - ...chariot" false trail. So, presumably we have Simon and Magus (but not Simon Magus)?
