No one could have writteb such an engrossiing picture of the >Renaissancw Rome and of the storic personality of Lucreti Borgia but a person like Gregorovius who knew Italy better than most Italians do today. An example is his clasic Strolls through Italy 1852-1876.
This is the cabin of Zeus. It is always thundering inside, and there are whispy gray clouds that float across the ceiling but never rain. Towards the center of the cabin, there is large statue of Zeus. There are a few bunk beds, a dresser with six drawers, a prism, a bowl of water, and a niche in the corner if someone wanted alone time.
The Borgia family was originally from Aragon, Spain and later intermarried. I am halfway through this book. I think it was oringinally published in the late 1800's. I have seen the book and author quoted and some of the quoted material I have seen in other material. Some of the stories made my hair stand on end. Cardinals and popes having sexual intercourse and illegitimate children, murdering for power, wealth and empowering their families. The author goes to great lengths to present an accurately researched book.
