By NAN ROBERTSON New York Times Service TROVES, France Who killed Jesus, the Romans or the Jews? Two thousand years after the crucifixion the ques- tion is being debated in a civil court here. The antagonists in the trial, for libel, are Jacques Isorni, a lawyer and legal historian rwho defended Marshal Philippe Petain during his treason trial after the Second World War and the Rev. Georges De Nantes, who has denounced Pope Paul VI as a heretic and whose ideas are viewed as so retro-grade and inflammatory that he is for- bidden to celebrate mass or preach in the Diocese of Troyes, 50 miles southeast of Paris. In a 1967 book entitled The True Trial of Jesus, Isorni attributed the crucifixion wholly to Pontius Pilate, who was carrying out Roman law as governor of Judea. The priest, reviewing the book, 309-7th Street Phona 328-5548 INSTALLATION FURNACES sf A 1709-2nd Ave. S. Phona 328-5973 termed the author an "unpaid lawyer for the Jewish people" trying to absolve them of 20 centuries of collective guilt. Father Des Nantes regards any Jew not converted to Catholicsm as a ratifier of deicide and an adherent of "a false religion that, being anti- Christ, takes the hide of the devil." The chief judge, Pierre Bondquaire; who appeared nervous, will hand down a ver- dict Dec. 11. During the trial, which drew huge crowds, the lawyer branded the priest a "modern Savonarola." He retored that his accuser was "a Christian renegade" who had falsified and distorted the gospels. Isorni, 63 years old, tall and imposing with an aureole of fluffy gray hair, speaks slowly, his voice rumbling like distant thunder. Presenting his arguments two weeks ago in the vast modern courtroom of the Palace of Justice in Troyes, he pointed at his adversary and boomed: "This man is harmful and dangerous. He attracts a certain youth with his calls to violence, and violence is a great seductress." He depicted Father De Nantes as a "frenzied fanatic." The lawyer, who said the priest sought to justify-all the crimes of the Naxis because the Jews "supposedly killed" Jesus, maintained that if the court did not convict him it would in effect exculpate him "for preaching the massacre of the Jews." This week it was the turn of Father De Nantes. Also tall and imposing, with dark, burning eyes set in a pale face, the 90-year-old priest came to the front of a banked tier of benches at the side of the courtroom. About a dozen of his followers, all thin, intense young men, some in seminarians' garb, were rang- ed behind him. They are ususally sequestered in his monastic community 20 miles from Troyes. They, like other devotees in the throng that filled every seat, stood around the back and sides and spilled out into the hallway, listening closely during the priest's 80-minute defense. Some, wore the pin of the League of Catholic Counter- Reform, which he founded in 1970. The league regards every liberalizing measure that came out of ecumenical council Vatican II in the as a disastrous, corruption of the faith. The chief judge appeared uncomfortable throughout the hearings. He was flanked by two aux- iliary judges, an elderly man and a young woman, who he feels will give him both a traditional and a more modern opinion.
