The story of Father Crespi is one of the most enigmatic ever told: an unknown civilization, incredible artifacts, a huge amount of symbols written on golden plates belonging to an unknown tongue and foreign representations that connect pre-Columbian America with the ancient Sumerians . The chronicle of events, and how they were treated, according to many, reveals a conspiracy to hide the truth about the history of mankind.
He was a missionary Salesian priest who lived in the small town of Cuenca, Ecuador, for over 50 years, devoting his life to worship and charities.
The priest was a person of many talents: he was an educator, botanist, anthropologist, musician, even also a great humanist.
In 1927, his missionary vocation led him to live alongside indigenous Ecuadoreans taking charge of indigenous people, and getting the respect of the Jivaro tribe, who began to consider him a true friend.
As a sign of gratitude, during the decades that Father Crespi was with them, the Indians will donate hundreds of archaeological pieces dating from an unknown time explaining objects that were found in an underground tunnel that was found in the jungle of Ecuador.
Many of them were gold, carved with hieroglyphs of an unknown language and nobody has yet been able to decipher.
This is just one many ancient artifacts he found after arriving in Ecuador in 1927. His collection was called the “metal library.” Many of these ancient artifacts were made of various metals, unusual for a very ancient time period.
After his death some of his most important artifacts were stolen or were lost. He was beatified by the Catholic Church for having lived 60 years as a missionary. He believed all his findings were “antediluvian” origin.
