Michelangelo Was Persecuted By The RCC
 Thursday, May 14, 2009

PBS: More than five centuries ago, Michelangelo Buonarroti was the darling of the Catholic Church. The Papacy commissioned him to create many of its most important pieces, including the frescos of the Sistine Chapel. He spent his life glorifying the Church, etching Catholic ideals into masterpieces that defined religion for the masses. Yet when he died, his body was secretly shepherded off to Florence, and the Church was denied the opportunity to honor him with a grand funeral in Rome. Historians have long wondered about the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death, but now, art historian Antonio Forcellino believes he has pieced together evidence of a deep rift between the Church and the esteemed artist. The cause: Michelangelo’s belief in Protestant ideals, and his involvement with a clandestine fellowship trying to put an end to the decadence and corruption of the Clergy and reform the Church from within..

Commentary: This was absolutely an amazing television show. So glad to have found it. So glad people had the courage to produce it. In my work for my website. I come up against so much persecution for my exposing of Catholicism. I guess I should consider myself blessed to not have to run for my life as Michelangelo had to. This broadcast makes me want, all the more to speak up and let the truth be known even more boldly.
