Conspiracy theories run rife around the internet and they will continue to do so. While not every theory that comes to light will stand a chance of there being any truth to it, there is a saying that in every rumor there is always a bit of truth.

The Roman Catholic Church headquarters is the latest to have become embroiled in a conspiracy theory, as they have done in the past. One of the latest of the theories is that the Vatican has possession of a secret device with the name of the Chronovisor and they use the device to look into events that will occur in the future along with ones that have happened in the past.

A book by the name of The Time Machine was written by H.G Wells during the 19th century, a book of science fiction, which attracted the pseudo-science and scientific communities. The book was popular and some physicists have believed that traveling through time is possible.

There is a great deal of controversy in the scientific community today about time travel, with some scientists saying that they have proof that it is impossible to travel in time. A group from the University of Queensland made a simulation in 2015 of how time-travelling photons might behave. They suggested that when at the quantum level, the grandfather paradox, which is what would make time travel impossible, might be resolved.

They made use of photons, single particles of light, for simulating quantum particles traveling back through time. By being able to study the behavior, scientists revealed strange aspects were possible of modern physics and so concluded that time travel is indeed possible.

With this having said to have been established the rumor about the Vatican owning a Chronovisor is not so out there. A newspaper in Italy published an article with the title of “A Machine That Photographs The Past Has Been Invented”. In the article, it alleged that this machine was capable of this and it had the name of the Chronovisor and it had been invented by people inside the Vatican.

The newspaper article went on to say that the device allowed the user to look into the future along with past events and the machine owned by the Vatican had one of the biggest and most closely guarded secrets that humanity had. The article was said to have shed light on the time machine publicly, however, people who were familiar with what went on inside the Vatican did not find the article all that surprising.


It said that a lot of scientists had been involved in the building of the Chronovisor and that it had been built during the 1950s under the supervision of the Vatican. The man who was said to have led the project was Father Pellegrino Maria Ernetti. He was a physicist from Italy who went on to become a priest and is said to have been behind the project. It was said that he received important and technical information from Enrico Fermi, the Nobel Laureate, along with rocket scientist Wernher Von Braun.

The newspaper article went on to describe the time machine as being a small object that had many antennas and which was made of precious alloy, cathode tubes, levers, and dials. It was said that the device could capture important events that occurred in the past and the future, at specific locations.

Father Ernetti was asked where the time machine was and he would not answer, he would only say that he was not allowed to talk about the location of it or if it was still in use.

People who had been close to Ernetti had been speculating whether Ernetti had dismantled the time machine as he feared it might end up in the wrong hand. It had been reported that Ernetti had said that if it should end up in the wrong hands it might be behind the scariest dictatorship to be seen in the world. Father Ernetti was also said to have said that Pope Prius XII told them not to disclose information about the device as it could be dangerous and might be used to restrain freedom of man.

The Vatican has always denied any claims of owning such a machine and they said that if anyone was using such a machine with the characteristics then they would be excommunicated. This led to conspiracy theorists claiming that the church was indeed hiding something. The rumor about the Vatican having the Chronovisor is still hanging around the Vatican’s neck whether it is true or not.
