Quinnipiac University Article on Columbus

Guest Speaker: Historian Manuel Rosa discussed the life of Christopher Columbus 

We were very excited to host Mr. Rosa at Quinnipiac on Thursday, October 8th, 2015. 

His lecture on the true origins and heritage of Christopher Columbus presented new evidence that shows Columbus was not Italian, but likely Polish royalty. Mr. Rosa is the author of two books “The Columbus Mystery Revealed,” published in 2006, and “KOLUMB. Historia nieznana” (COLUMBUS. The Untold Story), a bestseller in Poland, published in 2012.

In 1991, Rosa began investigating the life of Columbus, leading him on an intellectual and physical journey through Portugal, Spain, Poland and the Dominican Republic.

He was the only Portuguese historian involved with DNA studies of Columbus’ bones at the University of Granada in Spain. His work, if accurate, will completely change the way the world things about Christopher Columbus. 

”Thanks to much historical digging, Manuel Rosa offers a fascinating look at the roots of Columbus,” said Storozynski. “His work has gained international attention. While the book has been published in several countries, it deserves to be picked up by a major American publishing house as well.”
