Storyline

With the King of Naples dead, Lucrezia sends for her son. The year 1500 is approaching and Pope Alexander has declared it to be a year of jubilation. Expecting large numbers of pilgrims in Rome, he wants the Church to provide the spectacle they will expect. He wants the cardinals to come up with money-making ideas. He also puts pressure on the representatives of the Constantinople Jews who came to seek permission to live in Rome, to contribute to the holy crusade against the Turks. Yet they have a different contribution in mind. The plague has returned and Caterina Sforza looks to use it as a weapon against the Pope. Cesare returns with his own army countering the Sforzas influence and intent on taking Milan. He quickly gains several allies. He is outsmarted however. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The Longinus of the spear is Gaius Cassius Longinus, a Roman centurion. He allegedly pierced Jesus' side to prove he was dead. If he was still alive, the Romans were prepared to break his feet. The rationale behind that is that it would hasten death, not allowing the prisoner to push up on his feet to breathe. According to traditional Christian belief, water and blood gushed out of Christ's side when it was pierced and came into contact with Longinus' eyes. Although the Roman soldier had failing eyesight, his vision was restored. Longinus left the army and joined the Apostles, becoming one of the earliest clerics in the First Church. See more »
