Rome brands Shekhar Kapur’s ‘Elizabeth’ sequel ‘distorted anti-papal travesty’November 14th, 2007 - 8:14 am ICT by admin
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)
