Annius de Viterbo (1432–1502)
Preaching friar born at Viterbo who published a collection
of manuscripts known as The Antiquities of Annius, full of fables
and absurdities, and falsely attributed to Berosus, Fabius Victor,
Cato, Manettio, and others. He was also responsible for the
treatise The Empire of the Turks and the book Future Triumphs of
the Christians over the Turks and the Saracens. These two works are
explanations of the Apocalypse. The author claimed that Mahomet
was the antichrist, and that the end of the world would
take place when the Christians overcome the Jews and the Muslims.
