Oh, Babelfish, What Sins Are Committed in Thy Name

Reading this hallucigenically-bad translation from the (otherwise quite cool) Abbey of Monte Cassino website makes me wonder if St. Benedict had an unheralded apostolate to the Dadaists:

The Diocese of Montecassino is red-establish to that one of the ancient Casinum. At the beginning of the century YOU, for a phenomenon that verified sin from the end of the previous century, this episcopal center was lacking in Shepherdesses. S. Benedict therefore to its arrival on the mount of Cassino had to complete a great action of apostolate, especially between the surrounding populations, than in the campaigns and on mounts they still followed cults and customs pay some. The gotica war before and the invasion longobarda after ended but with sweeping up all the ecclesiastical organization of the time. It only later could settle down itself, and in the zone of the single Cassinate at the beginning of century VIII it could be considered restored, leaning itself on the monastero revived one of Montecassino.

The centers live to you in fact, than to work of the colonizzatrice reclamation of the monaci they had come forming itself in the immense one goes donated them from the Duca of Benevento Gisulfo II, closely remained legacies to the abbey, also in the sphere of the spiritual jurisdiction. This state of fact came favorite and recognized from the supreme Authority of the Church, that Montecassino with its dependencies like territory to being himself considered, independent from others.If the more ancient sources are committees with regard to in altered shapes, such acknowledgment without doubt did not have to be late very, since sees the Abbots to act liberations independently and, also in the exercise of ecclesiastical jurisdiction the confirmation documents then, that they are joints until we, go back to the second half of IX the century with i papi Nicolò I, Giovanni VIII and Giovanni X.

This is worth for how much refers to the so-called "Earth of S. Benedict", but to it they came added also to other nuclei with the own territories and jurisdictions. First of all that one of S. Liberatore to the Maiella, perhaps founded from Montecassino, to which sure it belonged already in century IX, when it appears in the history. Late those joined to more than. Angel of Barrea and S. Peter Avellana.Beyond these monasteriali centers, other donations came to still increase the within of the Earth of 5. Benedict: like that one of the Cetraro in Calabria, donated from Sikelgaita, moglie of Roberto the Guiscardo.

In these borders, in century XI, it turned out already united and compact our Diocese, said legally Territorial Abbey, whose several zones concurred to form one knits moral unit, even if some like that one of the Maiella and the other of the Avellana, could be considered indeed they were same they, equally, Territorial Abbeys, joined under only shepherdesses, cassinese Abbot.

The importance and the extension of our Diocese induced Pope Giovanni XXII to raise the abbaziale center to episcopal, with special clauses. In such legal and spiritual position our Diocese was recognized and confirmed also from the Papi that applied the norms of Concilio of Trento, especially with actions of Sisto V, City VIII, Benedict XIII. And then Devout Benedict XIV WAYS of it included the acknowledgment in theirs Agree to you with the Court of Naples. Moreover, already from the end of ` the 600, to Montecassino it had been joined an other jurisdiction, anch' Territorial it, that one that is of S Vincenzo to the Volturno. In such a way, while the ancient monastero, that it had many ties with the cassinese Abbey remained freed from the Commenda, turned out also knit the territorial continuity between the zone of the Cassinate and that one of the Sangro high.

In the 1834 Montecassino, stremato from the vicissitudes of the French revolution, while rinunziava to far away the territory of Cetraro in favor of the Bishop of S.Marco and Bisignano, it received in exchange the Prepositura di Atina.In such a way, in a time arc ultramillenarian, the voice of our "Ecclesia Casinensis" has been expressed and continuous to express itself with its particular stamp in the great ecclesiale concert that forms the mystical Body of Christ.
