The purpose of this historical document
is to again disconnect the Holy Name of God from the horrors committed
by the European religious and political leaders who claimed to be
Christians. Who could possibly believe in the Word of God - Jesus
Christ - in the face of this orgy of destruction and debauchery
perpetrated by those who proclaimed, from every corner of the world,
This is another example of how faith is destroyed subconsciously - an
ever increasing trend that God Wills to be reversed.
This document is based on part of a
article published in a Spanish magazine (1)
. The key individuals
mentioned in it are the following:
Columbus (1451 - 1506) - Discoverer of the Americas.
King Ferdinand II of Aragon
and Queen Isabella I of Castille
- named, by Pope Alexander VI in 1494, as the Catholic Monarchs (of Spain)
Juana I of Castille (la Loca: the insane one) daughter
of Ferdinand and Isabella and Felipe,
Archduke of Austria (el Hermoso:
the handsome one)
Pope Alexander VI (1492 -
1503) - A Spaniard from the Borgia (Borja, originally) family. The
father of the famed Lucretia Borgia and others. Logically, his past, as
it is customary, has been well laundered to make him look like almost a
We will not enter into the details as to why and how Juana and Felipe
ended getting married, why Felipe died so soon and why Juana ended up
locked up as if she were hopelessly insane, nor will we discuss the
of the Borgia Popes (there were two of them, both Spaniards - Calixtus
Those are revolting histories, but very typical of "Christian"
Europe. However, to properly cover those subjects would result in a
In his last years of life, Christopher Columbus tried by all means to
restore his prior benefits that had been taken away by the Catholic
Monarchs - Ferdinand and Isabella -
for his mistakes as Viceroy of the Indies (the New World). Columbus
wrote to King
Ferdinand and to Pope Julio II imploring pardon and justice, but
every effort was useless - neither was forthcoming.
The discoverer of America died in Valladolid on May 20, 1506. In
September of that same year, Felipe el Hermoso (son in law, and
co-conspirator, of King Ferdinand) died suddenly in Burgos, which
allegedly plunged his wife Juana (the daughter of King Ferdinand and
Isabella - the famed Catholic Monarchs) into such a state of mental
alienation that she was conveniently locked up for life in a convent.
The daughter of Queen Isabella and heiress of the kingdom of Castille
was referred to since then 'Juana la Loca' (Jane the Insane). Not only
the Crown was taken
away from her, but also the custody of her son Charles, whose care was
the hands of Marguerite, daughter of the Emperor of the Holy Germanic
Empire - Maximilian I of Austria. Upon Maximilian's death
in 1519, the title of Emperor of the Holy Germanic Empire was disputed
by several candidates, among them, Francis I of France and Henry VIII
Willing not to lose the opportunity of his life, the young Charles
(grandson of the Catholic Monarchs - Ferdinand and Isabella) turned to
the German bankers Welser and Fugger to obtain a considerable sum of
money with which to bribe to the elector and to the bishop of
Mainz, whose votes were indispensable to obtain the title. Once the
votes were bought and Charles was named
Emperor of the Holy Germanic Empire, Charles I of Spain and V of
Germany, he became the most powerful monarch of the moment.
During his reign, Spanish explorers continued the work that Columbus
had started. These immense territories enlarged the borders and riches
of the powerful Empire of Charles V.
The successor of Pope Leo X was his nephew Clement VII, who has gone
down in history for his excessive obsession with carnal pleasures.
Reliable rumors said that he loved to organize masked balls and
banquets, in which they served more than sixty different dishes and
gigantic puddings from which young men came out nude.
The second pontiff of the Medici family - Clement VII - had a son with
a mulatto mistress who became the first hereditary Duke of
Florence. Given its exotic physiognomy (dark skinned), the Florentines
called him 'El Moro' ('The Moor').
During his papacy, Clement VII faced the wrath of Charles V, who sent
troops to Rome to plunder the Vatican and placing the Pope in serious
trouble. The offense of this Pope was to try to alter the balance of
forces in the region and to free the papacy from the domination
exercised by the emperor. In May of 1527, the imperial
troops took Rome in reprisal, subjecting it to an orgy of blood and
For nine months, the emperor's soldiery looted the Roman churches and
palaces. Clement VII had to take refuge in the Palace of
Sant'Angelo. The Roman population, the ecclesiastical hierarchy and the
nobles suffered all kinds of humiliations. Many women were raped and
many men tortured and killed. The scandal over this
bestial imperial conduct was superlative in Europe.
Once recovered from the humiliation to which it was subjected, the
Pontifical State was faced with the irruption of Martin Luther
(1483-1546) and Protestantism, which seemed to threaten the Pope's
and influence in many European kingdoms.
In 1510, Luther made a trip to Rome, where he observed, scandalized,
splendors and the papal pomp of the 1500's. The disappointed German
pastor presented his 95 theses against the Church at the door of the
church of All Saints of Wittenberg. He also vehemently criticized the
sale of indulgences, through which the sinner obtained
the remission of his sins and faults.
In those turbulent times the decline of the Renaissance had already
begun. In fact, its end is as imprecise as its beginning. Some scholars
suggest that its decline commenced at the end of the 1400's. Others
believe that the final blow to the Renaissance was given by Emperor
Charles V in 1527 with the sack of Rome, which interrupted for two
decades the power of the papacy as the main patron of Renaissance art
May the True and Living God be Glorified and may the beacon of True
Christianity - best exemplified by Catholicism - shine to the far ends
of the Universe.
