But the view that there was an angle and involvement by cardinals of the Catholic Church at the time will be highly controversial. Yet there was.
Secondly: the breaking down of political and religious blocks was not restricted to Western Europe only. It also happened in the East. The family enterprise of the great Khans was put duly under pressure and China was the first to detach itself from the rest of the family empire preserving most of the great traditions of the great (Mongol) Khans.
The ulus of the sons of Jochi fell apart in three sections stretching from Siberia to Western Europe down to Turkey if not Egypt.
Many of the Southern sections became muslims. Western Russian sections split into jewish and nestorian christian sections.
Each of those religions claim to be much older as they really are. They were formed at this time and their holy books consequently were also formed around this time according to the same blueprints, the muslims finishing theirs first, the jews finishing theirs last.
It is not without cause that the art of printing books was discovered just around this time.
The blue print for the holy writ was rosecrucian and is still preserved in the teachings of Zarathustra. Which by consequence must have been the religious context of the Golden Horde.
|Florence, John XXIII's grave the largest|
tomb at his time...
The rosecrucian movement then was the glue which held together a word falling apart. The order itself was established exactly when the papacy lost control, but on the other hand the order developed within the bosom of its curia.
How could that have been?
When Martin V was elected in Konstanz there were three popes in Europe, which were all forced to resign. Technically speaking one of them had to be the real one. That is a matter of interpretation, but we may assume that John XXIII - might not be far off.
|Florence, beheading of John the Baptist|
The Medici in Florence had always believed in his legitimacy and built an enormous memorial to his legacy and dedicated it to John the Baptist. The largest and most impressive tomb at the time the Medici gave a clear message doing this. They were saying that the Church had taken off its real head.
He - Balthasar Cossa - became a cardinal in the roman curia! If there was any candidate to supervise the rosecrucian enterprise and have sufficient motives for it than it would have been him, assisted by the Medici.
He then would have become its first grandmaster listening to the name John I or would have installed him. With 22 of those it was indeed interesting that the RC Church in 1958 recaptured the lead with a rosecrucian becoming pope who took the name John XXIII.
But the question remains: who invaded whom?
At any rate from this moment in Florence the Renaissance set in. And I feel here we have arrived at the basic idea of these pages.
If you want to make the future, recreate the past.
