Accursed Indexing by the Vatican: Burned alive authors (Part 1, April 17, 2009)

 

Note: I intend to split this essay into two parts.  The first part describes the authors who were burned alive for their works.  The second part would tackle the famous works that were indexed by the Vatican till 1966 by Pope 6.  In 1962, cardinal Ciriaci complained that the editors were not paying the rights due to the Vatican by affixing “Banned by the Vatican” which generated excitement from readership. The indexed Faustina Kowalska in 1958 was canonized by Pope Jean-Paul 2 in 1988.

 

I read the French special series of the magazine “Le Point” on the accursed texts (Les Textes Maudits) that the Vatican had indexed and forbade diffusion and reading since the 12th century.  No sacerdotal caste in history enjoyed such power over the mind of its converts as the Christian Church of Rome. This power endured in what to become the most advanced societies since the 17th century and exercise the same influence even in so-called secular States.

The adventure started after the Crusade campaigns in the Levant had waned and lost its impetus for failing to capture Egypt, the shortest trade route for India and the Far East products of spices and perfume.  In 1184, a tribunal of inquisition headed by Bishops was created to fight the Gnostic “heretical” Cathare sect.  In 1231, the pontiff Gregory 9 entrust fighting heretical doctrines to the Dominican Order.  In 1542, the Church endeavored to fight the Reformist sects (Protestantism) by founding the “Supreme and Universal Congregation for Inquisition” and headed by cardinals.  In 1559, Pope 4 published the first Papal index that was instituted to confiscating the damned manuscripts and a congregation to that purpose was created in 1571. The Indexing of manuscripts was abolished in 1966.  Many famous works were indexed and banished from circulation but a few suffered terminal punishment and were burned alive.

 

The Cathare (Pure) sect in the 12th century was crushed, its converts massacred, and their Books burned.  This Christian Cathare sect was Gnostic and had a dualist conception of the Universe and man; the believers refused the Ancient Testament or (Jewish Bible) claiming that its God (Jehovah) is Satan; they refuted the incarnation of Christ and had confidence in the Church sacraments.  They had their Bishops and Books and lived in penitence, poverty, and chastity. The “Interrogatio Iohannis (John)” is one of their books that was spared destruction.

 

The Franciscan theologian Pierre de Jean Olivi (1248-98) had his “The Commentary of the Apocalypse” censured; his followers were persecuted in 1316 and hundred of clerics and civilians put to death by Pope John 22.  Olivi wrote that voluntary poverty and austerity of the Franciscans should not be restricted on lack of personal properties but must be verified by practice and on a daily basis; they should not be hording supplies in food.  Olivi decries the carnal and luxurious tendencies of the Church (the Anti-Christ period) and proclaimed that the third coming is close; he commented that the Church will soon go on a rampage of persecutions which will be the precursor for spiritual rejuvenation.

 

Marguerite Porete was burned live in 1310.  She wrote a mystic book “The Mirror of the simple souls” in a vernacular French language, and worst, did not follow the preferred Aristotelian logic. Marguerite claimed that when we conquer our wants and desires then the soul would be freed and yield to the total love of God and thus, the soul would not need any kind of faith to be saved.  The Church didn’t like her manuscript or Marguerite.

 

John Pic of Mirandola was poisoned in 1493 at the age of 31. He published “900 conclusions”; his manuscript “Of the Dignity of Man” was published after his death. The Comte John Pic refused all kinds of seclusions in schools of thought and tried to assemble the common denominators of all schools as valid for human intellectual traditions such as the philosophies of Aristotle, Plato, Gnostic doctrines, Jewish cabal, and natural magi.

 

In 1498, Fra Savonarola was burned live in Florence for demonic pride after undergoing the cruelest and harshest of tortures; he was burned at the same place where the manuscript of Dante “The Hell” was burned.  In 1494 the French troops of Charles 8 entered Florence and Savonarola reigned on that city as the sole power till 1498.  He instituted in Florence a yearly ceremony of erecting huge bonfires of 5 meters high labeled “Bonfire of vanities” where luxury items, paintings of nudes, furniture, luxury books, and anything pertaining to human vanity.  Savonarola was a tight, extremely reductive theologian and it happened that Alexander 6 Borgia was elected Pope. Alexander 6 was renowned to indulge in all kinds of carnal pleasures and had dozens of illegitimate offspring. Savonarola later inspired Martin Luther to revolt against the carnal conditions of the Church sacerdotal caste.

 

In 1600, Giordano Bruno alias “The Nolan” is burned alive because he denied Creation, the divinity of Christ, the virginity of Mary, and more importantly for professing that the Universe is infinite and that earth turns around the sun.  He sinned for liberating the human spirit and knowledge. Bruno wrote the comedy “Chandelier” and “The Supper of Ashes”; he claimed that an infinite God cannot create a closed universe without losing credibility; thus, he defined infinity to represent God.  The secret societies of the “Rose-Crucifix” adopted Bruno as its prime member.

 

 

Note 1:  No witch was ever burned live in Rome.  The preoccupation of the Inquisition was focused on those authors who challenged the power and authority of the Vatican, its dogma, politics, morals and values.

 

Note 2:  Pope Paul 4 initiated the indexing in 1544 by banning the entire work of any author who disturbed the authority of the Church; in total the index had 550 authors by 1564.  In that year, Pope Pie 4 orders that only the “incriminated” manuscripts should be indexed.  The problem with the Reformists was that their books were written in the German vernacular.  The Latin Church was not equipped for the challenge of reading in other languages and thus, any manuscript that showed up at Frankfort trade fairs.

 

Note 3:  La Place de Greve in Paris witnessed countless burning alive until the guillotine replaced this mania with a more efficient decapitation by mass series during the French Revolution.  Claude Le Petit was burned in 1662 during the beginning of the reign of King Louis 14 for writing “infamous poems”; one of the poems is on the theme of “fucking” everything and everyone. A year before, Chausson was burned for tentative rape of a boy.  Le Petit wrote a poem in honor of Chausson claiming that he uncovered his behind and bent it over to the masses of spectators.
