Holst appears to be a Catholic which is ironic given that he's based on Oliver Cromwell who was markedly anti-Catholic despite being largely regarded as a champion of liberty.
two questions: (1) one, how do you know holtz is based on Cromwell and (2) why do you assume he's catholic?
i get that he's working with catholic monks - but he's in rome! he needs their help, so even if he is protestant, he's not about to wave it in their faces!
that said, Angel, Lochley, Lindsy (Mac
Donald) and the show in general have a very Catholic feel. but not everyone; Gunn is pretty evangelical.
where do you get the Cromwell stuff from?
