From the book...

PROLOGUE
Toward the shut of the center a while, in 1285, there lived 3 males whose lives may intersect and perpetually swap heritage. each one used to be a guy of strength. each one used to be obdurate. each one used to be expert on the existence and paintings to which he appeared des­tined from birth.

The most crucial of the 3 and the crucial fi g­ure of this e-book is Peter Morrone. His surname comes from the mountain that he known as domestic for many of his existence. Peter was once a monk and the founding father of a non secular order, and reckoning on whom you seek advice from, he was once additionally a reformer, an instigator, a prophet, a coward, a idiot, and a saint. He used to be a great deal a guy swept up in historical past, and virtually in a single day he will be remodeled from a humble her­mit into Pope Celestine V, the main robust guy within the Catholic Church. He may additionally turn into the one guy in background to stroll clear of his task, vacating the chair of St. Peter sooner than he died.

If Peter Morrone lived this present day within the mountains out­side of Rome or la or New Delhi he can be a star guru. From early in his existence he used to be a guy with a mountain, or montagna, and made his casa di montagna. If he'd lived within the twenty- first century, talks to his fellow priests can be smuggled out of his enclave as electronic audio files, quickly to be packaged and bought via a huge manhattan predicament. He may emerge from time to time to talk privately with international leaders, who could additionally search him out for private guidance and, might be, picture oppor­tunities. Peter used to be this kind of figure in his day.

The first of those used to be Charles II of Anjou (1254-- 1309), supporter, corruptor, the ingratiating king of Naples. Hav­ing inherited his crown from a way more strong fa­ther in January 1285, Charles II discovered speedy how you can use influential males, in addition to to be of use to them. Charles may preserve the hermit pope on a decent leash.

The moment guy who's critical to our tale is Cardi­nal Benedict Gaetani, one of many 11 cardinal- electors who selected Peter Morrone as pope. Born as Benedetto, son of Gaetani, right into a renowned kinfolk in approximately 1235, he used to be a real Roman and the nephew of Pope Alexan­der IV (1254-- 61). good informed from early life, he knowledgeable as a legal professional, was once expert in canon legislations, and used to be made a mem­ber of the curia on the age of twenty- 9. For the subsequent thirty years Gaetani won a name as a supremely powerfuble papal legate who may perhaps symbolize the Holy See in confronting heresy and non secular uprising in locations like England and France, saying ethical authority while he­retical pursuits rose to the outside. He could turn into Celestine V's depended on consultant and might aid the hermit pope renounce from offi ce-- maybe conniving for his personal self- curiosity simply because he may take the chair of St. Peter purely 11 days later.

Celestine V's abdication used to be the climax of a fi ve- month reign, from July to December of 1294, in which time he served as Christ's ultimate consultant on the earth, after which give up. As we'll see, not anything went good for someone, other than might be for Gaetani.
