By Christian Duverger

1568. Un viejo compañero de Cortés escribe al ultimate de su vida los angeles Historia verdadera de los angeles conquista de l. a. Nueva España, considerada hasta hoy como un documento de primera mano y como una auténtica obra de arte literaria. Su autor, Bernal Díaz del Castillo, fue testigo ocular de los principales acontecimientos y de los más mínimos hechos de los angeles Conquista. A pesar de ser un easy soldado estuvo al lado de Hernán Cortés en cada momento y en todas partes: en México, en España y en Honduras; asiste a l. a. boda del conquistador, a sus entrevistas con el emperador Carlos V y con el soberano mexica Motecuzoma. Conoce, incluso, los secretos del testamento de Cortés y confesiones sobre su compañera, l. a. Malinche. Pero lo que más sorprende es que Bernal comienza a escribir su crónica -verdadero portento de l. a. memoria- a los eighty four años de edad, más de medio siglo después de los acontecimientos que relata. En Crónica de los angeles eternidad, el historiador francés Christian Duverger plantea las preguntas más inquietantes en torno a l. a. fabulosa obra de Bernal. ¿Cómo pudo un basic soldado raso, sin ninguna experiencia literaria, escribir l. a. magna crónica de l. a. Conquista? ¿Cómo pudo estar tan cerca de Cortés en todo momento y, sin embargo, no aparecer en ninguna de sus cartas, en ninguna de las crónicas y registros de l. a. época? ¿Quién es en realidad el misterioso Bernal Díaz del Castillo? Con una escritura ágil, mezcla de investigación histórica y novela policiaca, Christian Duverger conduce al lector por un apasionante recorrido que lo llevará a descubrir quién es el auténtico autor de los angeles Historia verdadera de los angeles conquista de l. a. Nueva España y cómo pudo pasar tanto tiempo tras las sombras.

Perhaps it is surprising that Fontana was never created a cardinal, but he distinguished himself as apostolic commissary sent in 1252–53 to pacify the Romagna and then to oppose the tyrannical Staufen protégé Ezzelino da Romano. In 1256 Fontana raised an army to recapture Padua from Ezzelino, calling up ‘soldiers of Christ, St Peter and St Anthony’. 62 In the 1260s papal authority finally destroyed the Staufen and their allies in Italy. 63 The hope was – as before – that the papacy would be able to depend on a grateful and loyal dynasty in the south, to protect and to fight for, the interests of St Peter.

37 In fact none did so, and the management of the Third Crusade was assumed by the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa – persuaded into the job by the same Cardinal Henri de Marcy – together with Richard I of England and Philip II of France. 39 Maybe it was partly because of the Fourth Crusade and its outcome that Innocent III and his successor Honorius III (pope 1216–27) tried to ensure that the next papally authorised ‘holy wars’ would be 14 ‘DUX ET PONTIFEX’ commanded by churchmen. This was demonstrated first in the campaign against the Cathar or Albigensian heresy in south-west France, which became a major extension of crusading warfare against enemies of the Church within Catholic Christendom.

In the course of the eleventh century lofty ideas were advanced concerning both the nature of papal authority and – as an inevitable aspect of this – ecclesiastical sanctions of warfare. There were of course earlier pronouncements on the superior nature of papal power. Gelasius I (pope 492–96) is credited with introducing the idea of the Church as a principality set above all earthly princes and the pope as the vicar not only of St Peter but of Christ himself. 12 These ideas, however strong in their implications for future wars, need not concern us at this point so much as two practical measures designed to ensure more effective papal authority, both of them the achievements of Nicholas II (pope 1059–61).
