Excellent article, very descriptive. I noticed one minor error however. The italian "Council of Ten" (1310-1797) was not a group of poisoners, the group you want is the "Italian School of Poisoners".
The real councial of ten was a group whose task was to avert plots against king and state.
Here are some links
This bears a reference to one of their rulings
Thanks, as I said, excellent work other than that minor point.
