Peter and the Apostles had been arrested, escaped and rearrested. Then Peter spoke in their defense: “We ought to obey God rather than men…”
Then Gamaliel said: “Leave these men alone! If this work is of men, it will come to nothing, but if it is of God, you are not going to be able to destroy it, because then you will be found to even be fighting against God.”Acts 5: 29…38,39 ( Sandy’s understanding . A really interesting chapter of imprisonment from jealousy and angel release. Peter and the Apostles knew who they loved.)
The last prisoner kept in here was Count Cagliostro. Here they didn’t have to see much of him as they feared his gaze and thought he might induce them into freeing him or hypnotise them. He apparently had persued several occult arts and was arrested in 1789 for wanting to found a Masonic lodge in Rome. Being sentenced to death it was then decided to have him sent to Forte di San Leo where he died in 1795.
The Fort also had many other small prison cells and then in one large hall a substantial gun collection. I was pleased to leave this place.
Then a walk down from the Fort through the Medieval town and back to Bugzy.
Thank you for walking through San Leo in the morning.
