"Now, I-I,? also I, here present -incontestably, I- am going to write an order to which I am certain you? will give credence, Baisemeaux turned pale at the icy assurance of manner. It seemed to him that that voice of the bishop who was just now so smiling and cheerful, had become funereal and sad; that the wax lights changed into the candles of a mortuary chapel, and the glasses of wine into chalices of blood. Aramis took a pen and, and wrote. Baisemeaux, in terror, read over his shoulder.

"A.M.D.G., wrote the bishop; and he drew a cross under these four letters, which signify ad majorem Dei gloriam, "to the greater glory of God"; and thus he continued, It is our pleasure? that the order brought to Monsieur de Baisemeaux de Montlezun, governor for the king of the castle of the Bastille, be held? by him good and effectual, and be immediately carried into operation. (Signed) D'Herblay, "General of the order, by the grace of God."

"The [Jesuit Superior] General is at the head of this black and mute militia, which thinks, wills, acts, obeys -- [as] the passive instrument of his designs. Their whole life?? must have? but one? aim -- the advancement of the [Jesuit] Order to which they are attached."? (1912) Jeremiah J. Crowley (Irishman; ex-priest in the Roman Catholic Church; author of the book Romanism: Menace to the Nation)

"In Roman Catholic circles it is well known? that the Black? Pope is the term used for the [Superior] General of the Jesuits. As the Pope is always robed in white, and the [Jesuit Superior] General in? black, the contrast is obvious

But those? Romanists who do not greatly love the Jesuits,? and their? number is not limited, use the term as indicating that the Black Pope rules the White Pope...even while the former [i.e., the Black Pope] is obligated to make, at least, a? show of submission to the latter." (1896) M.F. Cusack (Ex-nun of Kenmore; author of the? book The Black Pope)

This passage is from The? incredible marquis by Herbert Gorman entitled? the soldier? of fortune(chapter six) It was? natural that Dumas believed implicitly in?? the magic of somnambulism, in? animal? magnetism and in chiromancy. No Haitian negro dancing before his Voodoo altar was more superstitious than Dumas. Home, to Dumas, therefore, was an authentically inspired adept in communicating with unseen world.

"It is impossible to read Elizabethan history [i.e., the history surrounding Queen Elizabeth I of England; queen:? 1558-1603] except in the? context of an army of Jesuits, masters of deceit, treachery, treason,? infiltration, subversion,? assassination, insurrection,? civil war and coercion, plotting for the good of the papacy, and the defeat of all the Pope's? foes anywhere in the world." (1987) J.E.C. Shepherd (Canadian historian)

"Comte? de Monte Christo" five centuries? and a half are compresed. Well, we? assert that we have taught France as?? much history about? those five? centuries? and? a half as any? historian.
