Editorial Reviews

Throughout his masterful career, Michelangelo glorified the church, etching Catholic ideals into the sculptures and artwork that defined religion for the masses. Now, 500 years after his death, art historian Antonio Forcellino has found evidence of Michelangelo's involvement with a clandestine fellowship trying to reform the Catholic Church from within.  The group's radical ideas and accusations of corruption were considered heretical and punishable by death. Michelangelo's involvement put him at dangerous odds with powerful officials who held his livelihood - and life - in their hands.  "Michelangelo Revealed" paints a stunning new picture of brave religious expression, personal vendettas, careful cover-ups and a most gifted artist desperately trying to reconcile his loyalty to the church with his own personal belief about the road to salvation.

I saw this remarkable work only recently on Public Television and was elated at the erudition with which the producers of this piece followed the research they impeccably revealed in communicating this fascinating aspect of the great artist's life. Their conclusions make perfect sense in terms of a realistic approach to the life of any human being, the changes that most human beings undertake in their lives, by the experiences they endure or relish to produce the final man or woman which may have traveled quite a long distance from that person they once were.

It would seem sour grapes to those who hold a specific view of religion and cannot abide any deviation from their own myopia.

Ever tried to do right, only to learn (the hard way) that your management organization doesn't really care about "right"? It's just another buzzword, "right"? Do or say something that crosses or minimizes or scrutinizes an oligarch or an entire oligopoly with absolute authority (or, as in Michelangelo's case, relegates the subject organization, being the Catholic Church, as irrelevant and unnecessary) and you will quickly find out what the true definition of "right" is. "Right" is what the authoritarians who control your future decide it is.

If you have been stomped into the dirt by an organization you thought would back you up when you identified some of the corrupt aspects of the executive agglomeration, only to discover that management does not want to hear any amount or form of feedback which does not reflect upon them in good light, then this is must-see video for you. Even the very best and brightest of our race have been ridiculed, humiliated and outcast by the powers-that-be for having pointed out their flaws and foibles. Michelangelo was left with nothing else to do other than to shut up and to leave behind a few very interesting and carefully veiled hints and inklings that only the keenest of history detectives would ever be able to sort out. This is a sad story, but it's one you need to know about. We all need to know this story.
