Bonetus

September 18, 2012
Followers of the Kosher-Catholic containment operation “Rorate-Caeli” may recall “New Catholic” (scroll down to the comments) turning his audience over to a guest contributor by the name “Bonetus” with the endorsement, “We are pleased to introduce our new contributor, Bonetus, a very wise and pious man.”

And with this prodding of the traditional goyim to learn at the feet of the “very wise man,” “Bonetus” proceeded with a transparent, condescending agenda of defining the boundaries for acceptable speech on the topic of ‘The Jews’ beginning by dredging up a ridiculous paen to the alleged racial prestige of today’s Khazar ‘Jews’ of whom it is alleged “Christ was born according to the flesh” and “the Immaculate Virgin Mary [is] already their sister according to the flesh” in blatant mockery of St. John the Baptist, St. Paul, and Jesus Christ who had no tolerance for such racial boasting, even from true genetic Israelites of His time.

I mention “New Catholic’s”  heralding of the “very wise [Judaizing] man” “Bonetus” as an introduction to documentation on the early 16th century figure, “Bonetus,” the rabbi/physician/’prophet’/astrologer to who is commonly regarded as the most corrupt pope in the history of the Church, the Borgia pope, Alexander VI.

From the Jewish Encyclopedia:

BONET DE LATES or LATTES (known in Hebrew as Jacob ben Immanuel Provinciale):

Physician and astrologer; known chiefly as the inventor of an astronomical ring-dial by means of which solar and stellar altitudes can be measured and the time determined with great precision by night as well as by day; lived in the latter part of the fifteenth century and the beginning of the sixteenth. Originally from Provence, and belonging to a family that had its origin in Lattes near Montpellier, he was forced to leave Provence with the rest of his brethren and settled in Carpentras. Thence he went to Rome, where he became physician to Pope Alexander VI. (1430-1503), and later to Pope Leo X. (1503-13). At this time he became rabbi of the Jewish community, to which he was able to render much assistance. He married the daughter of the physician Comprat Mossé of Aix. Bonet described the use of his instrument in a treatise written in Carpentras, the full title of which is: “Boneti de Latis, Medici Provenzalis, Annuli per eum Composti Super Astrologiæ Utilitate.” It appeared as a supplement to the “Calculatio Composta in Rima de Juliano de Dati,” Rome, 1493, and was dedicated to Pope Alexander VI. At the end Bonet craves pardon for his bad Latin, on the score of being a Hebrew. The treatise was republished by Jacob Faber of Etaples, together with his own commentary on John Sacrobosco’s “De Sphæra Mundi” and Euclid’s “Geometry,” Paris, 1500. Editions were also published in 1507, 1521, and 1534. Two editions appeared later at Marburg, in 1537 and 1557. In bad Latin, Bonet wrote a treatise entitled “Prognosticum,” published at Rome in 1498, and dedicated to cardinals Valentiniani and De Borgia, in which he predicted the coming of the Messiah in the year 1505 [!]. A full account of the book is to be found in Abraham Farrisol’s manuscript, “Magen Abraham,” or “Wikuaḥ ha-Dat.”

A pupil of the above-mentioned Jacob Faber, Charles Bovillus, 1470-1553, relates in the preface to his “Dialogi de Trinitate” that he met Bonet de Lates in the Roman ghetto in 1507, and went to his house in order to see the ring that he had invented …

It is evidence of the position held by Bonet at the papal court that on Oct. 13, 1513, [‘Christian Kabbalist’ Johannes] Reuchlin begged him to use his influence in order that the examination of the “Augenspiegel” [his defense against the heresy proceedings against him] should not be given into the hands of a commission made up of strangers [that is, believing Catholics], at all events not of Dominicans. Further, Bonet’s intercession seems to have been successful.

Bonet is known to have had two sons. One, Joseph, continued to remain in the papal favor; the other, Immanuel, was also in the service of the pope, from whom he received a regular salary.

Dear reader, a certain contingent of traditional Catholics is attempting to resurrect the most depraved aspects of corrupt Renaissance era, Judaizing, superstitious, usurious ‘Catholicism’. Beware.

The ‘Christian’ Nobleman/’Court-Jew’ Relationship

April 18, 2012
These works linked to below offer invaluable documentation giving insight into the relationship between the ‘Christian’ nobility and their ‘court Jews;’ something quite different from what the term implies and what court historians would have us believe on the topic.

As we have documented elsewhere, Judaism is by its nature a ghetto religion, even in the best of times. And as these works document, the Judaic ‘ghettos’ of Catholic Europe were often centers of international trade and moneylending and the civil authorities were oftentimes at the Judaic moneylenders’ service as enforcers for collection of debts from Christians. The temporally ambitious, knuckleheaded ‘Christian’ nobility tended to be fascinated by magic, Hermeticism, Kabbalah, gematria, astrology, etc., etc. which made them easy prey to the rabbis’ confidence scams utilizing these vehicles; ‘services’ for which they were returned many favors contrary to the interests of the Christian population and the Gospel.

These are invaluable resources generally, but may also come as an aid to those seeking to understand the direction of a certain contingent of traditionalists and the tradition they’re attempting to resurrect.
