The Vatican had in its possession a device that enabled people to see events that happened in the past or what the future might hold. According to several paranormal writers and priests, it was built in the 1950’s by a team of twelve scientists, led by Italian scientist turned priest, Father Pellegrino Maria Ernetti. They also had help from Nobel Laureate Enrico Fermi and famous rocket scientist Wernher von Braun.
Dubbed the Chronovisor, it was a large cabinet equipped with antennas made from exotic alloys, cathode ray tubes, dials and levers. According to Father Ernetti, it allowed the viewer to glimpse and record specific locations, events and people in Earth’s history. Under certain conditions, it provided possible scenarios from the future.
Father Ernetti said that he was not at liberty to discuss details regarding the Chronovisor. He only said that it worked by processing residual electromagnetic radiation left over from specific events. He used the device to witness several important events, the most notable of which was the crucifixion of Christ.
In 1972 an Italian weekly magazine published a photo depicting the event but Ernetti contested its authenticity. He said that if any recordings had been preserved, they certainly wouldn’t have been made available to the public and would most likely be safely guarded in the Vatican Archives.
Among other events, Ernetti witnessed one of Napoleon Bonaparte’s speeches and a Greek tragedy called Thyestes. This play is considered lost with only a few fragments surviving.
In the 1970’s the Chronovisor was used to obtain images from the future. According to a former participant in the Pegasus Project, the device was used to pave the way to actually transporting humans through time. During that period, the device provided images from 2013, showing the Supreme Court building under 100 feet of water. The Capitol was also a submerged ruin.
When these catastrophe and several others failed to manifest themselves, the Chronovisor supporters argued that it did not offer absolute and deterministic views. It had the ability to show one potential outcome, depending on several factors, including current geopolitical conditions. Or the device was simply showing realities from alternative timelines in the multiverse.
French priest and paranormal writer François Brune met with Father Ernetti a few months before his death and was told that the Vatican decided to dismantle the Chronovisor due to the danger it posed. It was disassembled in the early 90’s by the remaining scientists from the team that built it. On his deathbed, Father Ernetti retracted his claims about the existence of the device but Brune believes he was strong-armed into doing so.
No pictures or videos of this alleged device are available and if it really were in Vatican’s possession we can safely assume it will never be made public. The Vatican Vaults will keep it secret, along with numerous other unbelievable things.
