The era of the “smoke of Satan” – And congratulations to Prof. de Mattei

Congratulations to Prof. Dr. Roberto de Mattei for receiving the 44th Acqui Storia award – the most prestigious award for history books in Italy – for his groundbreaking history of the Second Vatican Council, Il Concilio Vaticano II: una storia mai scritta (The Second Vatican Council – a never before written history). Some victories come with a bonus – in this case, the president of the award jury, Prof. Guido Pescosolido, was so irate that the award was given to de Mattei that he resigned his position in the board.
