New Research Exposes Countless Lies About Christopher Columbus
NEWS PROVIDED BY - EIN Presswire - Sep 29, 2023, 12:23 PM ET
Renowned Columbus scholar Dr. Manuel Rosa will present “Columbus Exposed: Lies, Spies & Conspiracies” over the next few weeks
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ -- With Columbus Day around the corner, North Florida Historian and Author Dr. Manuel Rosa, one of the foremost authorities on Christopher Columbus, announced today he will present a lecture titled “Columbus Exposed: Lies, Spies & Conspiracies” in cities from Florida to Massachusetts. The lecture is based on Dr. Rosa’s decades-long research into the man the world knows as Christopher Columbus, a supposed Italian weaver. In fact, the discoverer was named Cristóbal Colón and was not Italian.
“This year, for Columbus Day, I think we owe it to our ancestors to blow the lid off the lies we’ve been hearing about this man for half a millennium,” said Rosa.
The new evidence was just published in Rosa’s dissertation, CRISTOFORO COLOMBO vs CRISTÓBAL COLÓN. The 30-years-long research shows a story completely different from what most people’s teachers taught them. João Paulo Oliveira e Costa, Chair of the Department of History and Full Professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities at Universidade Nova in Lisbon, wrote that Rosa’s dissertation “Scrupulously respects the sources” and that it makes “clear the impossibility of Cristóbal Colón having been born into a family of Genoese weavers.”
Uncovering the truth about the discoverer is more than just an esoteric quest for knowledge of the 15th century. Rosa’s lecture will reveal how Cristóbal Colón was, in fact, a Polish prince, not an Italian weaver. The discoverer intentionally claimed that the New World was India because he wanted to deceive Spain. Forged documents led historians astray for centuries.
“The fact that we have Columbus Day in the USA, a place he never visited, shows us how important the myths are in general,” said Rosa, who earned his PhD in Insular and Atlantic History (XV-XX Centuries) from Azores University. “So many false assertions have been made about him and the consequences are not benign. Today there is bitter controversy over who he was, and wasn’t. It is time to start setting the record straight.”
Rosa has scheduled these lectures to align with Columbus Day in the U.S., which is October 9, and Spain’s national holiday, celebrated on October 12 in honor of the 1492 discovery.
The lectures will take place at the following places and times: - Thursday, October 6 at 6:30 PM at the University of Florida’s Adam Herbert U Center (12000 Alumni Drive, Jacksonville, FL) – This event is free of charge. - Friday, October 7 at 4:30 PM at the Argyle Branch Library (7973 Old Middleburg Road, Jacksonville, FL) – This event is free of charge. - Saturday, October 14 at 6:00 PM at St. Anthony Church Parish Hall (400 Cardinal Medeiros Ave, Cambridge, MA) – This event requires ticket purchase. - Sunday, October 15 at 7:00 PM at the Polish Russian Lithuanian American Citizen’s Club (12 Cheever Street, Danvers, MA) – This event is free of charge.
Since 2006, Rosa has been a member of the Centre for the Humanities, School of Social Sciences and Humanities of NOVA University Lisbon and has published nine revolutionary history books in several countries, including the award-winning "Columbus: The Untold Story" (USA 2016), which is admired as perhaps the best and most authoritative work ever written about the discoverer of America. It received a 5-star review from Indie Reader, won an Independent Press Award in the category of Biography: Historical, won the 2018 New York City Big Book Award and was named the Best World History Book of 2016 in the Huffington Post.
Manuel Rosa earns doctorate by showing that Columbus was not a Genoese wool weaver, as history books have presented for centuries
PONTA DELGADA, PORTUGAL, September 6, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ -- On this day, 531 years ago, a fleet of three ships lifted anchor from Gomera island in the Canaries and set sail following a secret map that led them to the Caribbean. The Captain General of the Fleet became wrongly known as Christopher Columbus, a weaver from Genoa.
“In the recent dissertation by Manuel Rosa, scrupulously respecting the sources, it is made clear the impossibility of (Cristóbal) Colón having been born into a family of Genoese weavers,” wrote João Paulo Oliveira e Costa, Chair of the Department of History and Full Professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities at Universidade Nova de Lisboa.
The dissertation, CRISTOFORO COLOMBO versus CRISTÓBAL COLÓN, earned Manuel Rosa his PhD in Insular and Atlantic History from the University of the Azores. For Rosa, considered one of the world’s foremost authorities on Christopher Columbus, the bestowing of the degree comes after spending over 30 years investigating the life of America's legendary discoverer.
The newly presented evidence proves that only a high nobleman could have married the discoverer’s Portuguese wife in 1479. Other documents prove that, in April 1493, the Italian printing press gave the noble navigator the mistaken identity of Christopher Columbus, the name of a Genoese weaver. The man Americans call Christopher Columbus was actually named Cristóbal Colón.
“As we head toward Columbus Day, let’s celebrate the discovery by getting our facts straight about the discoverer,” said Rosa. “The navigator was a Portuguese nobleman, not a Genoese weaver, as Americans have been taught and as Italians erroneously promoted.”
Rosa began his historical journey during the Columbus quincentennial. He saw some seriously suspicious red flags regarding the accepted Genoese weaver Columbus narrative. The explorer supposedly was a lowly foreigner yet married an aristocratic Portuguese lady 14 years before becoming famous. A union between common weavers and nobles could have never happened. Not only would it have been unthinkable, but deaths would have resulted from it. The closer he delved into the facts, the more certain he became that we were not being told the truth. After 30 years he succeeded, not only in uncovering documents forged to support the lie of the wool-weaver, but all the necessary evidence that will rewrite the history books.
Rosa completed his doctorate with guidance from doctors João Paulo Oliveira e Costa, chair of History at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and Avelino de Freitas de Meneses, Full Professor at the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences at the University of the Azores. The seven-member jury approved the work unanimously and with distinction.
Since 2006, Rosa has published nine history books in several countries, including "Columbus: The Untold Story" (2016), which is admired as perhaps the best and most authoritative work ever written about the discoverer of America. It received a 5-star review from Indie Reader, won an Independent Press Award in the category of Biography: Historical, Winner of the 2018 New York City Big Book Award and was named the Best World History Book of 2016 in the Huffington Post.
Rosa affirms that the new history is all proven by documents that anyone can read and verify. The documents even reveal a secret discovery of the Americas by other parties who found land decades before the 1492 journey.
And, one of the most interesting facts: Colón always knew he was not in India and never planned to sail to India at all. The voyage was a “false discovery” to trick Spain into believing America was India and the navigator lied to Spain and enlisted others, such as Amerigo Vespucci, to also lie. Why? Rosa has uncovered the documents that answer the why and how this ruse was executed as well.
