The Vatican’s Time Machine

A secret in Rome

The Vatican is a sovereign city-state in Rome, Italy. It has its own government, led by the Pope and the Holy See, which represents and speaks for the entirety of the Roman Catholic Church. It also has its own small military force, called the Swiss Guard.

Oh, and a time machine.

Chronovisor – The Time Viewer?

The 2002 book The Vatican’s New Mystery by Francois Brune contains the peculiar testament of Father Pellegrino Maria Ernetti.

According to Ernetti, long ago the Vatican commissioned the development of a strange machine: a large cabinet with a cathode ray tube, like a television set, and dozens of buttons, levers, and switches. Ernetti himself helped construct it, alongside scientists from around the world, including Enrico Fermi and, some say, Nikola Tesla.

But this wasn’t any old device. It was a time machine. But not in the traditional sense — they called it a chronovisor, a type of “time viewer.” This machine would allow its user to view events throughout history, or even focus on specific people, to watch them through time.

“…it worked by receiving, decoding, and reproducing the electromagnetic radiation left behind from past events…”

Ernetti claimed to have, himself, used the chronovisor to observe the crucifixion of Christ.

There’s no particular reason to believe any of these claims. As popular as they are with conspiracy theorists, it’s even questionable how much power and control would be gained by simply viewing past events.

It’d be fascinating, yes, but what would you do with that information?

    1. This “article” on what could be called the most ingenious and important device in the history of mankind, is at best a shoddy misrepresentation of the alleged “Chronovisor”. Mr Schwarz poor description of what he’s discussing, leaves the reading lacking at his abrupt, quickly arrived at conclusion.
      The Chronovisor, is allegedly able to tune into any past event in history, and then play them out on its screen for all to watch like a live broadcast.
      Not only is that quite thrilling to contemplate on a personal note, think of the topics it would open, and clear up for mankind !! Mr Schwarz says “What would you do with that information”? Mr. Schwarz is obviously pleased with the status quo, as far as history books are concerned, whether it be WW2 and what was really said behind closed doors in secret, that shape our world today; Or to the day the dinosaurs died off, with an alleged asteroid impact, which is not being claimed questionable. Not to mention the dating of when it happened…
      Those of just 2 simple examples of recent and ancient history, where actual truth could be learned and seen, instead of relying on theories and the history of the victors to shape our view of history.
      After-all, who wouldn’t give anything, to be able to sit and listen to the proceedings “live” on July 4, 1776? Or to watch and listen to Jesus preach His Sermon on the Mount in “real time”. Or how about tuning into that day when Moses parted the Red Sea? Or to watch and learn, exactly how the pyramids were built? And by whom?

      Perhaps this is useless information you wouldn’t know what to do with Mr Schwarz, but I know seeing and hearing the truth of ALL these matters on this very brief list, would be enlightening not only to me, but to many other people as well.
      For those of you who are just as happy watching the Simpsons as you would be watching the Chronovisor? That’s okay, I don’t think the Vatican’s ready to open it’s door yet, and despite what Me Schwarz says, if this Chronovisor was actually a reality? I can imagine every major world power fighting over it. I tend to think they’d find the information as valuable as I do…

      1. Fair enough! You’re not wrong.

        This post was written almost 8 years ago in the earlier days of this website, and was just a quick one that I haven’t looked at in a very, very long time. Now, looking back, I actually don’t disagree with your assessment. I might revise it in the future.

        Thanks for your comment.
