MWW has all but confirmed that the Last Testament of Schueler is what they referred to a "Operation Androcles". Yet I doubt Cayleb would release such a letter, at least initially, because they don't have to. They have 3 different sources that deviate from the official church line to choose from and can take a more gradual approach. First, you reveal the Sisterhood of Saint Kohdy and the evidence that supports that something fishy was going on in the War Against the Fallen, with Nynian going public with what they know and a willingness to allow the Church to examine the Tomb and the Diary (under the watchful eye of Merlin). Then Paityr returns to Zion with the Stone and the Key, thus revealing what his family knew all this time. Only then does Staynair and the Brethren reveal what they know, after several years and seeing how people handle each stage of the revelation.

That sounds like a great way to turn something on that we don't want turned on. Maybe as a last resort.

Still more likely than the Sisterhood stepping into the light- much less releasing any of Senjin Kohdy's writings ( the most controversial of which aren't understandable on Safehold since they don't know Spanish). Let's not forget that the Mother Superior of the Sisterhood is only known in Church circles by the reputation she built being the "Mother Superior" of a high end brothel and her hooking up with Merlin since the end of the war isn't going to help her rep either.

The Stone of Scheuler going back to the Temple is gonna happen eventually- that plot point has been plain since Petyr's defection to Charis and his entrance into the inner circle after his father and uncle were killed. All that's up in the air is the exact circumstances and what happens when the Stone is used.

I'm imagining a massive collaborative effort between the Church and Charis to determine the validity of the Testament of Schuler.

I'm picturing Charis airlifting in the most cutting edge in scientific and diagnostic equipment to 'help' prove or disprove the validity of the documents.

I'm sure the Church will be taken aback by just how much effort Charis will put into testing them. It will probably kickstart an entirely new wave of innovations as people scramble to find new methods to validate the documents.

In fact, in their desperation to find an answer, who knows how many innovations the church might find itself sponsor too.
