at San Salvador W.I., Oct. 12th 1492
( Dióscoro Teófilo Puebla Tolín, 1862) Wikipedia
"Christopher Columbus produced a famous book, The Book of Prophecies, containing over 200 biblical and patristic passages which he compiled, but how many people understand why?
"When Columbus made his case to win support from the Vatican and the Spanish monarchy, at the centre of his manifesto was a millennial prophecy about the destiny of the land that he would discover. A 'New World' was to arise in the West to fight a final Crusade against the Arab powers of the Middle East."
