The Vatican-backed historian said that the motion picture risked the division of the West.

Franco Cardini, the professor of medieval history at Florence University said that the aim of the movie was to ’secularise and de-Christianise’ Europe.

While writing in Avvenire, the official organ of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, Cardini said that the film formed part of a ‘concerted attack on Catholicism’ by atheists and ‘apocalyptic Christians’.

Professor Cardini said that ‘Elizabeth: The Golden Age’ caanot be judged as a good film for its falsification.

“A film which so profoundly and perversely falsifies history cannot be judged a good film,” Times Online quoted him, as saying.

He added that the film had potentially offered ‘a contribution to the understanding of a moment of vital importance.’ (ANI)
