A Future Pope's (Paul IV) Powerful Church Militant Quote

          1559 A.D. Medal: (Front) Pontifex Maximus Pope Paul IV, (Rv.) Christ

 

 

"Even if my own father were a heretic, I would gather the wood to burn him."
(Cardinal Gian Pietro Carafa, the Future Illustrious, Pope Paul IV, 1542 A.D.)

 

 

Note: The higly esteemed Cardinal Carafa was instrumental in helping Pope Paul III reconstitute/reorganize (via Paul III's Papal Bulla Licet ab initio, of July 21, 1542) the Holy Roman Inquisition [termed The Sacred Congregation of the Universal Inquisition]. Paul III named six Cardinals as the Inquisition Tribunal, of whom Cardinal Carafa was the Inquisitor- General.
