    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Avenge O Lord has its title from a poem by John Milton (1608-1674), which is also referred to in the episode. The poem was written as a commemoration of the massacre of the Waldensians by the Romish church in Piedmont, Italy.


        Avenge O Lord thy slaughter'd Saints, whose bones
        Lie scatter'd on the Alpine mountains cold,
        Ev'n them who kept thy truth so pure of old
        When all our Fathers worship't Stocks and Stones,
        Forget not: in thy book record their groanes
        Who were thy Sheep and in their antient Fold
        Slayn by the bloody Piemontese that roll'd
        Mother with Infant down the Rocks. Their moans
        The Vales redoubl'd to the Hills, and they
        To Heav'n. Their martyr'd blood and ashes sow
        O'er all th'Italian fields where still doth sway
        The triple Tyrant: that from these may grow
        A hunder'd-fold, who having learnt thy way
        Early may fly the Babylonian wo.
