Um, doesn't Severian find out she remarried *after* he revives the assassin? I
blieve Odilo or Pelagia tells him after the Flood.
And there always seemed something Christly about Severian's revival of the
assassin, as he is giving even sinners a new life after death.

>>their use of the term "Old Citadel" implies there is a "(newer) Citadel"
(presumably the citadel of the archon of Nessus)<<

Are you sure "old" is capitalised? And yes, the archon has to be somewhere.
