She is relatively physically functional in the morning. Pains forces her to integrate her sofa. Then she confuses day and night as the days light lengthen.

Les autorités évictent une part du bidonville. Ces “parachitistes” des bédonvilles sont convergés vers une parcel de proprietaires pauvres. Ils construisent leur favela en une journée. Ils attendent que les autorités les evictent et plient bagabes promptement: Les Real Estates developers, aidés des politiciens vereux, s’approprient le terrain.

If it were Not for the nationalization of Suez canal crisis in 1956, this binary pole of USA Capitalism and Soviet Communism dominion would have taken longer to materialize, and the European Union would have waited far too long to be shaped and agreed upon.

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.

“Be Free is all that I am” (April 18, 2009)

 

Marguerite Porete was burned live in 1310 in Paris at the “Place de Greve”.  She wrote a mystic book “The Mirror of the simple souls”; the manuscript was in the vernacular French language, not Latin mind you, in a narrative and poetic mode, and worst, did not follow the prescribed Aristotelian logic of the theological canons. The Church did not like what it read and censured the manuscript and burned it in 1306.

Published about 1296-1305, the book describes the conquest of soul via divine love and the yielding of the soul to the total love of God. The technique is a dialogue between Love and Reason; Reason is overwhelmed and fails to comprehend truths. Marguerite claimed that when we conquer our wants and desires then the soul would be freed and would not need any kind of faith to be saved.

The freed souls cannot but express in paradoxes and scandalous propositions. The freed soul know the depth of its nullity and let humility reign and guide it to the highest sphere of kindness because the freed soul needs no intermediary. The freed soul reaches a state of innocence and indifference and allows God to act on it as He pleases. The freed soul is liberated of sins and thus, has no need to be dominated by virtue. The freed soul does no longer worry to accomplishing works of charity with purpose to be saved and has no inclink for sacraments.  As the freed soul let God will for it then nature will cater to its bodily wants.

The “Mirror” pointed the way to liberating morality and thus, a rejection to sacerdotal mediation.   Marguerite beseeched the scholars to “humiliate their knowledge” before attempting to read her manuscript.  Marguerite was accused of persevering in disseminating her message and was incarcerated by the inquisition.  She refused to talk in her defense.  The Church didn’t like Marguerite anyway.  The message of Marguerite Porete was a source for medieval mysticism. The manuscript survived because it was not written in Latin, the sole monopole language of the sacerdotal caste and scholars.

 

In a previous post “The Meaning of Life” I stated: “Most religions have to erect an ideology and sometimes slightly update it to face changes; the sacerdotal castes main job is to pressure you to accept their set values and morals as the best that characterize you.  In fact, religions do not want you to exercise introspection and learn your own characteristics; they want to “save you that hassle” and show you the proper way; they want you to be the man among all same men with preferred set of passions instead of realizing your individuality.  Only those following the preferred “type” are selected in heaven as on earth; the black sheep of strong individuality are not recognized in heaven because only the mediocre, the humbled, the naïve, the simple minded can be saved.  The sacerdotal caste doesn’t care if you have faith or if you believe in One God; the caste wants you to obey its guidance and follow blindly its daily guidelines”.

 

I tend not to exaggerate; when I do then you quickly realize that I am in a humoring mood.  Look in the sky, the vast oceans; look around you the insects, plants, and pets.  I have a question: do you think that what you have seen is man-made and created by man?  If you are an optimist then who created all that wonder?  Do you need a sacerdotal caste to tell you the obvious?  Do you need a special caste to making a career reading in the same Book or what amount to the same Book and think that they are in a position to guide your steps and meddle in your daily life?  If you are a pessimist then whatever you will hear or see is naught anyway.
