Author Alfred Lenarciak's Discovery of lost manuscripts leads to adventure and historical insights

Many historical figures such as Napoleon spent years searching for these with the belief that anyone who possessed them could rule the world.

What would you do if your trip to a family home in a foreign land yielded the discovery of a lifetime?

Alfred Lenarciak happens to be married into the old, noble Ferri family. So, he and his wife Barbara trekked to her maiden land in the south of Italy to work on reconstructing her family’s baronial palace. In the process they uncovered a hidden library containing the manuscripts of Tommaso Campanella, who was a leading philosopher and prophet during the Renaissance.

“The more I dug into the history of these documents the more I realized how sought after they were,” Lenarciak said. “Many historical figures such as Napoleon spent years searching for these with the belief that anyone who possessed them could rule the world.”

Campanella became famous for writing prophecies on behalf of various Popes, kings and even Napoleon. After making the discovery of the documents many experts were impressed by Lenarciak’s find, but certain extreme political and religious factions began clamoring for them believing the manuscripts could provide them with powerful propaganda knowledge.

Lenarciak has turned his experience with the documents and the stories surrounding their past into his new historical novel, “Napoleon’s Eagle Prophecy.” Combining personal stories, historical facts and modern political insights the book contains a wealth of adventure and knowledge.
