Book Description

The untold story of the secret alliance behind the ""discovery"" of America • Reveals how a utopian dream of brotherhood among Christians, Muslims, and Jews fueled a murderous power struggle involving secret societies, popes, and kings • Explains why King Ferdinand of Spain supported Columbuss voyages openly, but, secretly, sought to undermine their purpose • Shows how Columbus knew, sailing west, he would find the ""New World,"" not Asia Was Columbus a Templar? According to the historic documents and maps revealed by Ruggero Marino, Columbus shared their dream of Christians, Muslims, and Jews living in peace in a New Jerusalem, and his voyage across the Atlantic was both to find a new passage to Asia and to find the place where the New Jerusalem could be built. Marino draws parallels between Marco Polos journey east over the Silk Route and Columbuss sea voyages and reveals that Columbus studied ancient texts and maps from the Vatican Library, access to which was granted by Pope Innocent VIII--who Marino shows to be Columbuss true father. Innocent VIII (whose own father was Jewish and grandmother was Muslim) was the perfect individual to further the Templars plan to create a universal religion combining the spiritual wisdom of the three faiths. Marino shows that Innocents ""disappearance"" and the story that Columbus merely stumbled onto the New World were part of a calculated political and theological cover-up. While King Ferdinand (the model for Machiavellis The Prince) and Queen Isabella of Spain are heralded with funding Columbuss ""discovery"" of America, it was Innocent VIII who was the main sponsor and master-mind of the expedition. To obscure the purpose of the voyages, and give Spain the credit for the New World discovery, Ferdinand and his agent Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia), Pope Innocent VIIIs successor, initiated the disinformation campaign that has lasted for over 500 years.
