Medieval Spirit

Not noble-born but a peasant called to preaching by a holy vision. Speak the gospel to those starving to hear, those like him, shunned by the church for their lack of coin and unsavory squalor.

Serfs gathered with the birds and the rabbits, eager, as if he were St. Francis himself.

“You have direct access to God. You don’t need the church to receive His guidance and blessings. You are as worthy as any king.”

Displeased this heresy was gaining momentum, the Pope sent troops to arrest him in the square.

Shackled, imprisoned, without trial, he hanged the next day.
