Want more proof the Church systematically and unrelentingly covers its tracks and whitewashes history for its own world-hating ends? Well, your best bet is to ignore the steady stream of first-rate history that comes from the Vatican Archives.
For example, according to Malcolm Moore ("Vatican paper set to clear Knights Templar", telegraph.co.uk , 5 Oct 07) a new book, Processus contra Templarios, by Professor Barbara Frale, will be published by the Vatican's Secret Archive on Oct 25. "The new book is based on a scrap of parchment [known as the Chinon parchment] discovered in the Vatican's secret archives in 2001 by … Frale. The long-lost document is a record of the trial of the Templars before Pope Clement, and ends with a papal absolution from all heresies."
History is coolz.
