The Catholic pope gets a double-barrelled blast, which proves that Copenhagen's Dance of Death is from 1550 - after the Reformation. Or does it? Meyer thinks it proves that the dance of death is from about 1536 since such an attack would be futile in 1550 when the Reformation was fully implemented. As Meyer points out: Even if the remaining copy might be from 1560, it doesn't follow that there may not have been older editions.
