For the first 3 centuries, there were 10 great pagan persecutions of Christianity, culminating in the longest and bitterest under Emperor Diocletian. It is called the Era of the Martyrs, and the bishops and deacons were always the first to be arrested and executed. In Roma, it is known as the Era of the Catacombs, when the life of the Christians consisted of persecutions above ground . . . and prayer underground. Persecution kept the Congregation pure and nobody lifted up his head above his brothers, or sought preeminence.

Pope Urban I (222230)
was a myth.


It is historical fiction to claim that there were any Popes in Roma prior to Pope Julius I.

The boy Emperor Severus Alexander was sole ruler of the Empire during the reign of the mythical Pope Urban I.

The first Emperor named Severus was Septimus Severus, who made a top secret visit to Britannia in 208.

Emperor from 222 to 235.

Emperor Severus Alexander was the last of the Severus dynasty. His assassination led to nearly 50 years of civil wars, foreign invasion, and the collapse of the monetary system. That chaos finally led to the conquest of the entire Roman Empire by Jesus Constantine.

Pope Urban II (10351099).
Pope from 1088 to 1099.

Pope Urban II, Odo de Châtillon, was a Frenchman by birth, and he preached the First Crusade at the Council of Clermont, in November 1095.

He exhorted his fellow countrymen to take up the cross and liberate the "Holy Sepulchre" from the "infidels."

His battle cry was Deus Vult, (God Wills It).



Peter the Hermit (1050
preaching the First Crusade.

Urban was assisted by a rabble rousing monk named Peter the Hermit. Together they were able to persuade thousands of Frenchmen to take up the cross and head to Palestine. That was a multinational effort as people from most of the western European countries were represented. However, the largest contingent were French.

In August 1096, a huge undisciplined mob appeared outside the gates of Constantinople. Emperor Alexius was appalled. He kept a watchful eye on them and refused to allow them into the city . . . except in small groups. He quickly put them on ships and ferried them across the Bosporus.

Pope Urban III.
Pope from 1185 to 1187.

Jerusalem was sacked by the brutal Crusaders during the First Crusade, and as revenge, the Muslims built a mosque on the most holy site in Christendom.

Pope Urban III rejoiced greatly at this cover-up!

Pope Urban was sent to "Purgatory" in October 1187, and he was quickly succeeded by Pope Gregory VIII and Pope Clement III.

Resurrection site since 1187.

At the dawn of the new millennium, a new group of Muslims emerged from the area of the Euphrates River. They were called Seljuk Turks and they were the precursors of the Terrible Turks.

The most famous, or infamous, Seljuk Turk was called Saladin (11371193). Saladin was mostly responsible for making King Richard the Babylonian Lionheart a "war hero."

Pope Urban IV (11951264.
Pope from 1261 to 1264.

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

In 1196, Joachim wrote a massive commentary on the Apocalypse entitled Expositio in Apocalipsim.

Before he became pontiff, Urban did his utmost to bring about the fulfillment of that "prophecy," so he was deeply disappointed that it didn't happen in 1260.


Joachim of Fiore

Urban IV was succeeded by Pope Clement IV, who summoned "Dumb Ox" Thomas Aquinas to Roma as his "spiritual advisor." Aquinas denied that triune immersion was necessary for baptism, and he added the filioque clause to the Apostles Creed. That novelty states that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father . . . and the Son . . . thus making the Holy Spirit a hybrid.

Pope Urban V (13101370).
Pope from 1362 to 1370.

Pope Urban V was the sixth Avignon Pope.

The last deadline for fulfilling the "prophecy" of Joachim of Fiore was 1335, so that deadline had long passed by 1362.

Benedictine monk Urban had a burning desire to return to Roma.

In October 1367 he actually arrived in the city and crowned a puppet Holy "Roman" Emperor named Charles of Bohemia.

That puppet "Roman" Emperor did not find it incongruous that he was not allowed to reign in Roma.

Pope Urban VI (13181389).
Pope from 1378 to 1389.


Soon after Pope Gregory XI reluctantly returned the Papacy to Roma, he was sent to "Purgatory."

Gregory was followed by Urban VI, but he had a rival at Avignon named Clement VII.

That was the beginning of what is called "The Great Western Schism," and it lasted until 1415.


Avignon Pope Clement VII (13421394). Avignon Pope from 1378 to 1394.

During the Great Western Schism, 3 "Holy Fathers" reigned simultaneously at Roma, Avignon, and Pisa. All of Europe was in a state of confusion because backing the wrong Pope could get you burned alive at the stake. It was a great opportunity for the Terrible Turks, who were waiting impatiently to invade Western Europe.

Pope Urban VII (15211590).
Pope from September 15 to 27, 1590.

Pope Urban's reign was the shortest in pontifical history: from September 15 to September 27, 1590.

His Papacy began just 2 years after the defeat of the "Invincible" Armada bankrupted the Spanish treasury!

Philip II was furious at all of the pontiffs because he never received payment due to the failure of his "Invincible" Armada.

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

Philip II financed his "Invincible" Armada with gold stolen from the New World natives, but Pope Sixtus V (15881590) also promised him a huge payment in gold when he landed in England. That landing never happened, but Philip II still demanded payment. That was why the furious and bankrupt Philip sent so many Popes to St. Peter.

Pope Urban VIII (15681644).
Pope from 1623 to 1644.

Pope Urban VIII is mostly known today for "persecuting" Galileo and his rotating ball earth model.

Galileo was a Jesuit, and his fellow Jesuits in China had trouble convincing the cerebral emperor of China that his kingdom was not the "middle kingdom," or center of the flat earth!!

That led to his HELLiocentirc theory, which he stole from the ancient Greeks.


Galileo Galilei, S.J.

In 1633, Galileo was commanded to appear before the "Holy Office" for writing a book entitled Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, Ptolemaic and Copernican. This book advocated the heliocentric model of the solar system that the earth turns on its axis and orbits the sun.

The Dominican monks ran the Inquisition and they despised and hated the Jesuits as upstarts. The Dominicans claimed to be DEFENDING the "Bible" when they condemned Galileo. The "Bible" they were referring to was of course the corrupt Latin Vulgate Version. Here is an excerpt from the trial of Galileo:

You have rendered yourself, the document declared, vehemently suspect of heresy, namely of having held and believed a doctrine which is false and contrary to the Sacred and Divine Scriptures, that the Sun is the centre of the world and does not move from east to west, and that the Earth moves and is not the centre of the world; and that one may hold and defend as probable an opinion after it has been declared and defined contrary to Holy Scripture. (Shea Galileo in Rome, p. 193).

Pope Urban VIII was the last Urban in the nightmarish Papal dynasty. The best way to rescue Catholics . . . and Muslims . . . from the Babylonian system is to present a 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).
