The name INNOCENT means harmless, blameless, without guile etc., etc. It means the opposite of GUILTY. Even back then the Vatican had a fantastic publicly department, or devilish public relations personnel working for them.

Pope "Innocent" I.
Pope from 401 to 417.

Even back in 400, the Vatican had a savvy public relations department because 13 Popes adopted the throne name "Innocent."

If Attila the Hun had a PR department like the Vatican, he would now be known as "Saint Attila."

In 410, for the first time in 800 years, mighty Roma was invaded and sacked by the Goths.


The Sack of Roma by Alaric
the Goth in 410.

"Innocent" was "guilty" of aiding and abetting the Goths in the sack of the city. The Romans were famous for writing everything down. All the history of their military campaigns and conquests were faithfully recorded. Additionally, they recorded the bizarre demonic activity on the island of Britannia (Devil's Island) . . . which we now call UFO's or aliens!

The true history of Christianity was also written down by the Romans. "Innocent" wanted all the records destroyed so he could build upon the sinking sand foundation of Saint Peter in Roma. Except for the books hidden in the Secret Archives, only 1 percent of that history has been preserved.

Pope "Innocent" II.
Pope from 1130 to 1143.

The pontificate of "Innocent II" following immediately after the death of Pope Honorius II.

In 1129, Pope Honorus II convened the Council of Troyes, which officially recognized the Knights Templar.

Cistercian monk and breast feeding Bernard Tescelin de Fontaine was their official sponsor.



Pope Honorius II (1
Pope from 1124 to 1130.

In 1139, "Innocent" II declared that the Knights Templar should be answerable only to the Papacy. They were the precursors of the Militia of Jesus, or the Jesuits, who answer only to the Jesuit general or Black Pope.

Pope Innocent III (1160 -1216).
Pope "Innocent" III (1160–1216).
Reigned from 1198 to 1216.

Pope "Innocent" III needs no introduction.

He sponsored the Children's Crusade, the deadly Albigensian Crusade, and the Fourth Crusade.

He was the first Pope to call himself "Vicar of Christ, which in Greek means "Antichrist."

U.S. Capitol Building.

Alarmingly, in 1950, a bust of that "Pied Piper" was placed in the U.S. House of Representatives.

After the brutal Sack of Constantinople in 1202, the Latins occupied the city until 1261. Finally, they were driven out and the city was one again controlled by the Greeks.

Pope "Innocent" IV.
Pope from 1243 to 1254.

As the year 1260 approached, the writings of Joachim of Fiore were all the rage.

He divided history into 3 parts, and he predicted that the 3rd epoch would begin in 1260.

Pope "Innocent IV" was looking forward to this New Age of the "Holy Spirit" when all the world would be Muslim!



Joachim of Fiore

When the "prophecy" did not come to pass in 1260, the date was pushed back to 1290, then a new date of 1335 was proclaimed. That prophecy almost came to pass in that year because the Black Plague wiped out 50 million souls, and left the door wide open for the Terrible Turks.

Pope "Innocent" V.
Pope from Jan. to June 1276.


1276 was an annus horribilis for the Papacy.

Pope Gregory X was sent to St. Peter that year, and he was followed in swift succession by 3 other pontiffs.

Innocent V: January 21 to June 22, 1276.

Adrian V: July 11 to August 18, 1276.

John XXI: September 8 to May 22, 1277.


Pope John XXI.
Pope from 1276 to 1277.

The pontificate of John XXI only lasted until May 1277, and then he was sent to St. Peter. It seems that only pontiffs who were very zealous about fulfilling the "prophecy" of Joachim of Fiore were welcome to sit in the Chair of St. Peter.

Pope "Innocent" VI (1282–1362).
Pope from 1352 to 1362.

Pope "Innocent" VI was the fifth Avignon Pope

With the population of Italy greatly reduced by the Black Death, Innocent appointed soldier-cardinal Gil Alvarez de Albornoz as his legate to the former Papal territories.

Financed by Clement, Albornoz had no trouble raising an army of mercenaries.

Gil Alvarez de Albornoz

He faced no opposition from France because of the Hundred Years' War between King Edward III and Philip IV. Here is a quote from a history of the Avignon Popes:

The soldier-cardinal duly left Avignon in August 1353, in the first year of Innocent's pontificate, and his military operation began that December against the rebel states in central Italy. Albornoz immediately displayed his diplomatic skills by securing the support—surprisingly—of that sworn enemy of Avignon, Giovanni Visconti, the ruler of Milan. (Mullins, The Popes of Avignon, p. 170).

Even though Labornoz waged deadly warfare on the now devastated population, he was not able to secure control of Roma, and thus Pope Clement's fondest wish of returning to the city of the Seven Hills could not be fulfilled.

Pope "Innocent" VII.
Pope from 1404 to 1406.

"Innocent" was pontiff during the Great Western Schism when 3 "Holy Fathers" were fighting over the Chair of St, Peter.

In 1394, Pedro de Lunatic, aka Pope Benedict XIII, declared himself pontiff at Avignon, in opposition to Pope "Innocent" VIII.

That Benedict has been called an "Antipope" since the Papacy returned to Roma in 1377.

In 1415, Saint John Hus was burned alive at the stake because he advocated getting rid of ALL of the Popes . . . forever!

Pope "Innocent" VIII (1432-1492.
Pope from 1484 to 1492.

The next "Innocent" was pontiff during one of the the most momentous times in world history.

That pontiff was sent to St. Peter on July 25, 1492, and he was replaced by the infamous Rodrigo Borga, aka Pope Alexander VI.

Portuguese Christopher Columbus sailed to the New World in August 1492, and he returned home in March 1493.


Pope Alexander VI (14311503).
Pope from 1492 to 1503.

When he arrived home, Pope Alexander published a Papal Bull donating the entire New World to Spain:

Furthermore, under penalty of excommunication late sententie to be incurred ipso facto, should anyone thus contravene, we strictly forbid all persons of whatsoever rank, even imperial and royal, or of whatsoever estate, degree, order, or condition, to dare, without your special permit or that of your aforesaid heirs and successors, to go for the purpose of trade or any other reason to the islands or mainlands, found and to be found, discovered and to be discovered, towards the west and south, by drawing and establishing a line from the Arctic pole to the Antarctic pole, no matter whether the mainlands and islands, found and to be found, lie in the direction of India or toward any other quarter whatsoever, the said line to be distant one hundred leagues towards the west and south, as is aforesaid, from any of the islands commonly known as the Azores and Cape Verde; apostolic constitutions and ordinances and other decrees whatsoever to the contrary notwithstanding. (Inter Caetera Bull of 1493).

That Bull was aimed directly at the Portuguese because Columbus was Portuguese. However, it also excluded all other nationalities from even visiting the New World without a license from Ferdinand and Isabella . . . and their successors!

Pope "Innocent" IX (15191591).
Pope from
Oct. 29 to Dec. 30, 1591.

King Philip II financed his "Invincible" Armada from gold stolen from the New World natives, and Pope Gregory XIII promised him a big payment in gold as soon as the Armada landed in England.

With the failure of the Armada, the Vatican refused payment, and the bankrupt Philip was furious!

Pope Gregory XIV was sent to St. Peter on Oct. 16, 1591 and Pope "Innocent" followed him shortly thereafter!

King Philip II (1527-1598).
King Philip II (1527–1598).
King from 1554 to 1598.

Pope Innocent was following by a more compliant Pope who took the named Clement VIII. Remarkably, that pontiff managed to survive in the Chair of St. Peter until his death in 1605.

Pope "Innocent" X (15741655).
Pope from 1644 to 1655.

Pope "Innocent" X was a contemporary of King Gustavus of Sweden—the "Lion of the North."

Before he became pontiff he fully supported the imperialists during the bloody Thirty Years' War.

In 1648, after killing each other for 30 years, the nations of Europe finally signed a peace treaty called the Peace of Westphalia.

Pope "Innocent" opposed that treaty vehemently!


King Gustavus of Sweden (1594–1632).
Reigned from 1611 to 1632..

The Treaty of Westphalia ended the bloody Thirty Years' War, and it also ended the Eighty Years' War between between Spain and the Netherlands. The treaty ended one of the most calamitous times in European history with total casualties exceeding 8 million souls

Pope "Innocent" XI (1611–1689).
Pope from 1676 to 1689.


After Polish hero Jan III Sobieski defeated the Terrible Turks outside Vienna on September 12, 1683, he sent the captured Turkish banners to Pope "Innocent."

That "Innocent" pontiff could not persuade the Turks to launch another invasion so he died disappointed in 1689.

He was succeeded by Pope Alexander VIII, who couldn't persuade Sultan Suleiman II to launch another attempt at the conquest of Germany.


King Jan III Sobieski (1629-1696).
King Jan III Sobieski
Reigned from 1674 to 1696.

The pontiffs that succeeded "Innocent" and Alexander were no more successful in persuading the Terrible Turks to invade Germany again.

Pope "Innocent" XII. (1615–1700).
Pope from 1691 to 1700.

In 1690, the year before "Innocent" became pontiff, the famous Battle of the Boyne took place in Ireland.

The Prince of Wales Warming Pan Plot precipitated that battle.

Mary of Modena—the wife of King James II—could not produce a Prince of Wales, so she faked the birth, and introduced a nun's baby instead.


The Battle of the Boyne, July 1, 1690, was
fought over a baby!

That event led to the invasion of William of Orange to save the country from the Warming Pan Plot. James fled to France, and then to Ireland, where he made a last stand at the Battle of the Boyne. He was defeated and never returned to Britannia. The warming pan baby survived under the name James Francis Edward Stuart.

Pope "Innocent" XIII (16551724).
Pope from 1721 to 1724.

He chose the name "Innocent" XIII in honor of Pope "Innocent" III.

After the failure of the uprising in 1715, "Innocent" gave the Old Pretender asylum in Roma, and he continued to plot against the Hanovers who now occupied the British throne.

In 1722, with the blessing of Clement, a group of Jacobites, led by Francis Attenbury, tried unsuccessfully to restore the Warming Pan Prince of Wales to the throne!



Jacobite Francis Attenbury

Pope "Innocent" XIII is the last Pope named "Innocent" in the nightmarish Papal dynasty! The best way to rescue Catholics . . . and Muslims . . . from the Babylonian system is to present the true history of the Papal dynasty:

Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity, for it is the time of JEHOVAH's vengeance; he will render unto her a recompense (Jeremiah 51:6).

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" (Apocalypse 18:4).
