A novel by

 
Excerpt from The Friar of Wittenberg

"Martin Luther - yes, the name of that fool of a German comes back to me."

"You were going to tell a story about him, Eminenza," I remarked.

"A very brief and scurvy story." The Cardinale di Forli stretched out his red-slippered feet, and reached languidly for the carafe of Chianti upon the table at his elbow. He had already emptied the cup several times and his thick lips were a little flushed. "It was six years ago - 1511, to be exact, I remember; just before my lucky elevation. Well, I was then lodging at our convent near Santa Maria in Ara Cli. I was the prior and manager, and very good dinners we had. What must needs happen but that stupid northern brute of a friar should visit Rome, and demand hospitality at our convent. Ugh! but what an unkempt rogue! He had come from Wittenberg, some den or town up in your frozen north, on business for his order before the papal chancery. We tried to show him kindness, and it was as good as a mummer's play to see the way the fellow ran around to visit all the holy spots in the city.
