“We proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.”
Papal Bull Unum Sanctum of 1302, by Pope Boniface VIII.
Fordham University, ‘Boniface VIII, Unum Sanctum, 1302’, Medieval Sourcebook,
The following information, all in fact on this page, are excerpts taken from my book 'The Hidden Hand of History - The Enemy Within'.
In the 8th century the Roman Empire/Catholic Church kingdom was coming under attack from all different angles, including Muslim armies driving Roman forces out of the Middle East. The Empire was under so much pressure only central Italy was left under the Empire’s control. Their protector in the east, the Byzantine empire was being exhausted from defeat at the hands of the Muslim armies, and Italy was being overrun by the Germanic/Scandinavian Lombard’s who almost took over Italy unopposed from the middle of the 6th century to the mid-8th century. This happened quite easily due to Italy being largely depopulated because of the war between the Byzantine Empire and the Germanic Ostrogothic Kingdom which had spread into Italy. The Church, under Pope Stephen, was in serious danger of losing Rome, so they had to come up with a plan to protect and preserve what was left of a falling empire. The Papacy came up with a plan that would never work in modern times, but around 1300 years ago, people were uneducated and superstitious. What transpired was the Papacy forging a letter that was produced and delivered to King Pepin, who was the leader of the Frankish Carolingian Dynasty which controlled most of what is modern France at that time, along with chunks of west and southern Germany. From Avro Manhattan, a prolific author and man of aristocratic hereditary we learn about the outrageous letter that was delivered to Pope Stephen directly from heaven by St. Peter himself and it charged King Pepin ‘‘to preserve intact the Church’s earthly possessions’. Whether Pepin was playing along or was fooled by the Papacy, he led his Carolingian army against the barbarians and saved the Papacy’s empire. Shortly after the death of Pepin, his son Charlemagne was told that Pepin had given the Vatican all of Italy. But this was just the beginning of the next hoax the Papacy was about to pull off.
The Papacy has laid claims to the rightful ownership of all the Kingdoms and lands of the earth since the Papal forgery called the Donation of Constantine in 740A.D. Under the leadership of Pope Hadrian I, the Vatican presented King Charlemagne, the leader of the Carolingian empire with a forged document called the Donation of Constantine and this forgery altered the course of Western history right up to this day. The document claimed that Constantine had made the Popes heirs to the entire Roman Empire. The document was supposedly written by Constantine himself in A.D. 312, hundreds of years earlier, which just appeared out of nowhere, had ‘declared the bishop of Rome to be “Vicar of Christ’ and offered him the status of emperor’. Due to the forgery the succession of Popes claimed to be the successors of St Peter, and that they held the keys to life and death, and the nobility of Europe believed that the Popes were the head of the kingdom of God on earth. The Papal Caesar had pulled off a massive coup d’état, and the empire acquired the new name of the Holy Roman Empire. The Donation of Constantine had such an effect that it:
‘put the Popes above kings, emperors and nations, made them legal heirs to the territory of the Roman Empire, which it granted to them, lock, stock, and barrel, and gave to St. Peter – or rather to St. Silvester and his successors – all lands to the West and beyond, indeed all lands on the planet’.
This ‘Papal forgery’ placed the Vatican above the civil authorities of the nations of Europe, as they claimed supreme land rights, as the ‘real possessor of lands ruled by Western potentates’. They also claimed religious and political (temporal) power, including having the final say in ‘the political life of all Christendom,’ which brought on what historians now recognise as the Dark Ages under vast wealth confiscation and suppression of knowledge by the Vatican. This is what always happens when the pagan mystery schools take control, the people suffer! The Vatican was so powerful they openly undermined ‘the statutes of emperors and kings, no less than the civil law of nations’. The admitted fraudulent document was the foundation stone for the Vatican to make territorial claims, not just on the lands of Europe, but the rest of the world. It was the full transfer of the might of the Roman Empire into the hands of the Vatican, with the Pope becoming Caesar, and the College of Cardinals taking over the role of the Senate.
The established doctrine of Papal supremacy over the Kings and Queens of Europe was expanded upon again by Gregory VII (1073), who instituted power further into the hands of the Pope, instead of the institution of the Papacy, by concentrating religious and temporal power into the hands of the Pope himself. The attitude in the Vatican was that ‘emperors were emperors simply because they permitted them to be so’. Pope Urban II, following Gregory’s template, decided to expand upon the lands the Papacy should rule spiritually and politically. The Churches of Jerusalem, Antioch, Alexandria, and Constantinople, including the lands where they resided were targeted to be brought under Papal authority. This is what led to the Crusades, overseen by Vatican founded crusaders known as the Knights Templar between 1095-1291. The Templars were no ordinary soldiers though as it was reported that within their ranks at the time ‘they possessed no less than 16,000 Lordships’, with the headquarters for the Order being the Temple Church in the City of London.
It is a very common misunderstanding of history and the Bible to hear people equate Christianity with the Crusades, and the mass slaughter of people in the Holy Land. The Crusades came from those subscribing to the pagan mystery schools doctrine which venerate the sun. The priesthood of the mysteries were in control of the Vatican and behind the crusades, not Christians as many people consistently get wrong. It was also the priesthood of the mystery schools who were behind the mass murdering Inquisition, not true Christians. In fact, it was true Christian who were the most persecuted under the Inquisition. As ‘temporal sovereign of the universe’, the Papacy claimed sovereignty over ‘all the crowns of Christendom’, under Pope Innocent II (1198-1216). Interestingly, this meant that in reality the British monarchy became subordinate to the Papacy under the final years of the rule of King John, and certainly subjugated under the first few years of the rule of Henry III, with Pope Innocent ‘governing the island effectively through his legates’. This was the beginning of the Vatican using the British monarchy to exercise control over Ireland, a country the Roman Empire never set up in. The goal was to impose the strict discipline of the Roman Catholic system on the Irish, while conferring upon the English monarchy the ‘sole right to conquer that island and subjugate its people’. It was Nicholas Breakspear, otherwise known as Pope Hadrian IV (1154-59), who first subjugated Ireland to control of the British monarchs, with the clear understanding that ‘the pontiffs were feudal lords of all the islands of the oceans, thanks to the Donation of Constantine’. The precedent was set to allow the Vatican to make claims over all the territories of the world due to ‘the special jurisdiction of St. Peter’. With this claim it followed that all the natural wealth of treasures and riches in any form whether discovered or undiscovered belonged to the Pope and his successors.
The wealth the Vatican accumulated by the 16th century is mind-boggling. In England in 1515, registrar for the Papal Knighthood Order of the Garter, Roman Catholic Cardinal Thomas Wosley, became the chancellor of the nation and was said to be ‘the virtual ruler’ of the country from 1514 to 1529, with almost all the revenue and affairs of the state passing through his hands. The fact remains that during this period of history, the Papacy was the largest, most powerful, and wealthiest landlord on the continent of Europe, surpassing any Royal family or dynasty by a considerable distance. Avro Manhattan wrote that:
‘In England alone then, she owned, directly and indirectly, more than half of the arable land of the realm; in fact, her aggregate wealth was such that she exceeded all the nobility and the crown put together. The same went for France, and for the German states, not to mention Spain, Italy, and other countries’.
Rodrigo Borgia claimed ownership of the newly discovered Americas for himself ‘as the trustee of the Church, which, in her turn, owned them in the name of the Blessed Peter’.
Towards the end of the 17th century in South America, the Church was also the largest, most powerful and wealthiest institution, where it is said that the Vatican owned:
‘an estimated one half of the total wealth of Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Paraguay and Ecuador, and almost that proportion in all the other Latin American countries, while most of the remaining half was “controlled by the clergy through mortgages’.

Ex-Jesuit Alberto Rivera and others speak on Jesuit Infiltration. This is a must watch!
From the 14th to the 16th century an inquisition led by the Dominican Order and aristocracy of Europe, murdered and tortured countless millions trying to stamp out biblical Christianity, but as hard as they tried they could not stop the spreading of the faith as it is in the Bible. By the late 15th century into the 16th century the peoples and nobles of Europe started to openly defy and rebel against the rule of Rome, with many refusing to pay tribute, or taxes to the Vatican. It was this practice of vast wealth accumulation and obvious desire to dominate and control which led to the rebellion against the Vatican which culminated in the Protestant Reformation. The Reformation started on the 31st October 1517, when Dr. Martin Luther nailed his famous ninety-five theses to the door of the Church in Wittenburg, Germany. A wave of protest (Protestantism) was growing and spreading into France, Belgium and Holland with Protestant religious leaders proclaiming that the Pope, was in fact an anti-Christ (against or in the place of Christ) according to the biblical definition. The history of the European continent from the 16th century right up to modern times cannot be comprehended and understood without knowledge of the Reformation, and how this led to a counter-reformation strategy from the Papacy through the Council of Trent, which was planned out between 1545 and 1563. The Council of Trent was a massive brainstorming exercise among the Cardinals and Archbishops who travelled to Bologna in Northern Italy from across Europe to come up with a strategy to return the slipping political and religious power to the Vatican’s control once again
In 1540 Ignatius Loyola, a brilliant Spanish nobleman, and former soldier from Spain, was being tried by the Inquisition. He requested an audience with the Pope, which was granted to him solely because of his nobility connections throughout Europe and his military influence. Loyola explained to Pope Paul III that he had founded an Order which he had planned to use for the protection of the temporal power of the Papacy working separately from the Dominican Order. His order was called Los Alumbrados, with many informed researchers agreeing that they were a continuation of the Knights Templar. Los Alumbrados in English means, the enlightened ones, or Illuminati. Their doctrine and methods were anything but Christian as will be elaborated on further. So, in 1541 the Society of Jesus (Jesuit Order) was founded and financed by the Papal Nobility Borgia family as a means of undermining, or crushing, any challenge to the dominance of the Papacy. Ignatius Loyola was deemed untouchable from this point on and developed his branch of the Illuminati into the militia of the Pope, known today as the Society of Jesus, or Jesuit Order. Interestingly, Edith Miller cited her source for the quote below as the Encyclopaedia Britannica, Ninth Edition under the Article heading; Illuminism. You will see nothing of the sort in encyclopaedia’s less than 120 years old.
‘The Illuminati, a Spanish sect called the Alombrados was founded about 1520. Ignatius Loyola, while a student at Salamanca (1527), was tried by an ecclesiastical commission for alleged sympathy with this sect but was acquitted with an admonition’.
In the years after the Council of Trent, the Cardinals of Europe held their counter-reformation meetings in Villa Farnese, in Caprarola, in the Lazio region of Central Italy, to keep the meetings more of a secret from prying eyes in Rome, and elsewhere. The occult Pentagon design of Villa Farnese (see image below) is very significant I believe, and may well have been the inspiration for the design of the headquarters of the U.S. military in Washington D.C. Very few people know it but before being called Washington, the city area was called Rome! Villa Farnese has detailed maps of America from the 1500s that will make you question what you think about history from just looking at them. The Vatican College of Cardinal’s hierarchy had the country well mapped out and detailed by the mid-1500s. There is no doubt about that, and a visit to Villa Farnese will clarify that for any non-believer as the maps are hanging on display in the villa. The White House and the Pentagon are also located in the sovereign district of Columbia, Columbia also being the mother goddess. Surrounding the District of Columbia, you have Virginia and Maryland, or, the Virgin Mary, if you will indulge in a little word play! It’s all hidden in plain sight.

The Vatican’s most powerful global intelligence arm has for centuries been the Jesuit Order. They are one of, if not the most powerful of all the branches of the mystery schools who push a socialist/communist doctrine of control and secretly despise Christianity. Their greatest strength lies in infiltration and subversion by pitting unwitting peoples against each other and sowing division so that in the end the Church can take the most advantage.

Sections of the Ceremony of Induction and Extreme Oath of the Jesuits published in 1883:
My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a Reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among the Protestants, generally to be a Protestant; and obtaining their confidence to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among the Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope.
You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces and states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. To take sides with the combatants and to act secretly in concert with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected; only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means.
You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and in the judiciaries and councils of state, and to “be all things to all men,” for the Pope's sake, whose servants we are unto death.
You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as a coadjutor, confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as directed by your superiors for none can command here who has not consecrated his labors with the blood of the heretic; for “without the shedding of blood no man can be saved.” Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your Order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after me:
I do further promise and declare, that I will have no opinion or will of my own, or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or cadaver, (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the Militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ.
"I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society

If the Jesuit extreme oath of induction is not enough, there is no better example of the reality of Jesuitism than the statues on the front entrance to Chiesa del Gesù, the Jesuit mother church in Piazza del Gesù in Rome. The Jesuit Church has two statues of St. Ignatius Loyola stepping on the back and neck of Christians who don’t subscribe to Papal authority. It accurately portrays the role of the Jesuits in the Roman Inquisition (12th century to 1545 was by other Orders, but Jesuits continued it to the present) and counter-reformation (1545 to present). You will find an identical statue of Ignatius Loyola in St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican standing on the neck of a Christian holding the Bible.
They weren’t trying to convert anybody; they were trying to crush any and all opposition to their rule and the spread of Biblical Christianity. Interestingly, the Jesuit headquarters sits right across from the headquarters of the Scottish Rite of freemasonry in Piazza del Gesù in Rome, right around the corner from the Vatican. Former Jesuit priest of the 4th vow Dr. Alberto Rivera said the following about his former Order in the foreword Edmond Paris’ book The Secret History of the Jesuits. He stated:
‘The most dangerous of men are those who appear very religious, especially when they are organised and in a position of authority. They have the deep respect of the people who are ignorant of their ungodly push for power behind the scenes…These religious men, who pretend to love God, will resort to murder, incite revolution and wars if necessary to help their cause. They are crafty, intelligent, smooth religious politicians who live in a shadowy world of secrets, intrigue, and phony holiness’.
