Episode Summary

EDIT
Cesare Borgia celebrates Mass on Ash Wednesday for the King of Naples and his court. According to the liturgical texts, Cesare made a sign of the cross on the forehead of each participant with ash, in these words: "Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return."

Thus causing the sovereign Cesare stands in contradiction with the spirit of contrition associated with this holiday.moreless
