Msg event.pngThe Foundation of Societas Jesu

In 1540 Pope Paulus III recognized the Jesuite Order, created 1534 by the Spaniard Don Iñigo López de Recalade, better know as Ignatius of Loyola. He becomes one of the most devoted counter reformists and enemy number one of the Protestant movement. Loyola having a soldier background makes its mark on the order, which is organized almost as an army. High priority was given both to educating missionaries but also counselors for European royal courts. This made the Jesuite order very powerful in the politic scene. 1773 the Jesuite order was dissolved by Pope Pius VI due to pressure from Christian countries in the age of enlightenment. 1814 the Jesuite order was reinstituted, however just as a faint shadow of the powerful order it once had been.

Msg event.pngThe Counter-Reformation and the Reformation of the Catholic Faith

The Counter-reformation movement historically started in 1540 with the institution of the Societas Jesu. This marked the beginning of a few highly volatile decades in European history when the two sides of Reformed and Counter-reformed fought each other. At the same time there were forces within the Catholic Church who wanted reform to remedy the corruption and other afflictions of the church. Thus in 1545 the Council of Trent was called. The debate went on for almost 20 years with almost as much turmoil created as on the battlefields against the Protestants.

Msg event.pngThe Borgia Pope

White smoke emerges from the roof of the Sistine Chapel. Amid accusations of simony, the Conclave has elected Rodrigo Borgia, Archbishop of Valencia, to the Throne of Saint Peter. The Borgias are a relatively recent arrival to the theatre of Roman politics, and have gained the ire of the more established Roman families who coveted the position for themselves.\n\nThough many of the rumours surrounding this Borgia Pope are likely to be exaggerations propagated by his enemies, he is known to openly keep a mistress and has already elevated his teenage son Cesare to the rank of Cardinal. Speculation abounds that the reign of this Pope will be fraught with scandal and corruption.

Msg event.pngDecorate the Sistine Chapel

The old, decrepit Cappella Maggiore is no more - in its place the grand Sistine Chapels now stands. The Temple of Solomon and the Sistine Chapels are the same dimensions, as given in the Old Testament. The exterior is unadorned by decorative details, the building divided into three stories with a vaulted ceiling and six tall arched windows on the sides, two on either end. Although beautiful in its simplicity, the chapel's beauty could be enhanced by frescoes painted by the foremost artists of our time.

Msg event.pngLucrezia Borgia

Some women has only held worth in their families eyes because they could be married to wealthy and influential men, often many years their senior, to forge alliances, gain influence and founding in different matters. So was the case with Lucrezia Borgia, whose father Pope Alexander VI married her to three different men during her life to gain powerful alliances and founding. Her first husband was Giovanni Sforza, Lord of of Pesaro and titled Count of Catignola. He was offered Lucrezia's dowry in return for invalidating the marriage, the Pope claiming that it had not been consummated and should thus be dissolved. The Borgia family had grown so powerful that they no longer needed the Sforzas, and instead sought better alliances. Giovanni first refused, accusing Lucrezia of paternal and fraternal incest, but with the pressure from the rest of the Sforza family he finally agreed to sign confessions of impotence and documents of annulment before witnesses. Alfonso of Aragon married Lucrezia Borgia after the annulment, but the short marriage ended when he was murdered, supposedly by Lucrezia's brother Cesare. Lucrezia was appointed governor of Spoleto not long before her husband's death, and they had a child named Rodrigo of Aragon. Her third and last husband was Alfonso I d'Este, Duke of Ferrara. Lucrezia's reputation has taken a hit, with her many different marriages, murdered husband, annulment and the stain that her father and brother had brought upon her. Hopefully, with her marriage to the Duke, she can be known as a respectable and accomplished Renaissance duchess.
