Catholics love to demonize the Borgias because it lets them deflect mentions of a less illustrious period in the history of the Mother Church. Just those filthy Spaniards defiling their fair institution, you see.

Cesare wasn't particularly violent by the standards of his age. He was admired by his contemporaries for his intelligence, good looks and princely demeanor. Machiavelli regarded him highly and it wasn't just because he had a crush on him.

I didn't know Borgia was alive in 500 AD

He was a Jew. And a Jew at a time before the Ashkenazim, Sephardim, Mizrahim and so on became seperated entities.

To a Christian, his skin tone is irrelevant.

White isn't something that is defined very well. Marcus Antonius would certainly pass for white in New York City though judging from busts.

I would like to interject (as a christian, though not a catholic) that the auto-da-fe(s, technically) didn't happen until the church let the local monarchs name their own inquisitors. The Spanish for example made their own courts and bureaucracies. They, the Spanish government, started an inquisitorial court in Barcelona, when there was still discontent and people where committing crimes against the crown; notice that of the 1000 or so charged, only 25 where absolved.

Jesus wasn't even depicted with a beard before the 3rd century IIRC

also fun fact: some early frescoes depicted him as dark-skinned
>>
>>69154
Err the one in 1205 AD Turkey still looks pretty much like the iconic Jesus long before Cesare Borgia: long faces, long hair, narrow nose, beard etc...
>>
>>69154
His look doesn't matter.
>>
It's a long standing Christian tradition to depict Christ as he would have looked in he area.

Ergo, Korean Jesus looks Korean, Congo Jesus is black

Some art historians think that the stylization of the face of Jesus is from the Shroud of Turin
>>
>>73903
The Shroud of Turin is a product of the medieval period, and the face on it is entirely consistent with depiction of Jesus from the time.

It's not the other way around. The earliest depictions of Jesus were much different than the ones of the medieval period.

Ya nobody takes the 1979 carbon dating as accurate anymore. The sample was taken from a rewoven corner of the linen.

Might well be a medieval forgery but nobody has any idea how the image was formed.

No one has offered a criticism of the radicarbon dates that has been universally accepted. At least not that I've seen.The first mention of the Shroud is in a letter from the bishop stating that it's a fake and the artist who did it is know. And this letter matches the carbon dating range (which is also the height of the medieval relic craze). Yes, the date could be wrong, but that's an interesting coincidence.

As far as how the image was produced, a few people have produced pretty good replicas. And in different ways, too, so it's not like it's a mysterious supernatural technique would be needed. Surprisingly, wikipedia actually gives a pretty good summary.

In general, it's pretty hard to find reliable information about the shroud, because the vast majority of information sources are Christian-based. When you get beyond them, things like the provenience of the shroud and artistic problems (wrong fabric, wrong image, several anatomical issues) make it a pretty obvious forgery.

It's supposed to represent his duel nature of both Human and Divine.
