HEADLINE: Saint Antoninus (1459) by The Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary

  • Saint Antoninus was a little man, born in Florence. He was admitted to the Dominican Order when he was sixteen years old. He was the Pope’s special theologian at the Council of Florence, and later on was made archbishop of that city. He was called “the Father of the Poor.” He died holding a crucifix in his hand, and kissing it. His motto was, “To serve God is to reign.”
  • Fra Angelico – 
  • The angel is kneeling and lowering itself to Our Lady.
  • Knowing this is the Regina Angelorum – Queen of the Angels. 
  • Tuscany people aren’t the same as other Italians so the Southern Italians are darker etc
  • The actual Matese people are closer to the Continental Italians. 
  • HBO series Gunpowder – 
  • Gunpowder Plot – the conspiracy of English Roman Catholics to blow up Parliament and King James I, his queen, and his eldest son on November 5, 1605. The leader of the plot, Robert Catesby, together with his four coconspirators—Thomas Winter, Thomas Percy, John Wright, and Guy Fawkes—were zealous Roman Catholics angered by James’s refusal to grant more religious toleration to Catholics. They apparently hoped that the confusion that would follow the murder of the king, his ministers, and the members of Parliament would provide an opportunity for the English Catholics to take over the country.
  • The Gunpowder Plot was a failed attempt to blow up England’s King James I and the Parliament on November 5, 1605. The plot was organized by Robert Catesby in an effort to end the persecution of Roman Catholics by the English government. Catesby and others hoped to replace the country’s Protestant government with Catholic leadership. Around midnight on November 4, 1605, one of the conspirators, Guy Fawkes, was discovered in the cellar of the Parliament building with barrels of gunpowder. Fawkes and other men involved in the plot were tried and executed for treason. Every November 5, the British celebrate Guy Fawkes Day by burning Fawkes in effigy.
  • Fawkes and the other surviving chief conspirators were sentenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered in London. However, moments before the start of his execution, on January 31, 1606, Fawkes jumped from a ladder while climbing to the gallows, breaking his neck and dying.
  • Following the failed Gunpowder Plot, new laws were instituted in England that eliminated the right of Catholics to vote, among other repressive restrictions.
  • There was also the Hapsburg prestige on the line too.
  • The Spaniards were definitely part of this.
  • The pressing of the woman in the opening sequence is terrible – 
  • The Protestants did in-fact persecute the Catholics, they tortured them, and they murdered them.
  • This is the true history of what happened.
