HBO’s “The Young Pope” — Egregious Factual Errors Disturbing, Distracting & Disconcerting.

The Pope with his outspoken and conniving Secretary of State, Cardinal Voiello.

Yes, as is to be expected from a dramatization like this, there are a LOT of liberties taken when it comes to facts, depictions and settings.

Some are inevitable and you can live with them.

Others are just to egregious especially when certain plots revolve around them.

One such BIGGIE was in Episode 3. In that, the RESIGNATION of Cardinal Voiello, the supposed Secretary of State, figures large.

But, the Young Pope never RE-CONFIRMED Voiello as the Secretary of State — or for that matter ANY OTHER Cardinal Prefect heading up a curial ‘department’ (a so called dicastery).

All of these, as you can see from above, are AUTOMATICALLY relieved of their office and title. They have to be RE-APPOINTED by the new pope. That never happened.

So, a lot of what has gone on is fairy tales.

I am not that thrilled with this series. It is, alas, not very good.

“Alice In Wonderland” Lewis Carroll’s 185th Birth Anniversary — In Lieu Of Google Doodle.

by Anura Guruge


lewiscarroll


There has never been a Google Doodle for British polymath Lewis Carroll, real name: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.

Other authors, artists and mathematicians, of course, have been honored.

I have a hunch, and that snippet, above, on the left his painting of a young lady, who was his muse for “Alice in Wonderland”.
