Paul Serup is an independent researcher and author based in central British Columbia, Canada. Though he didn’t know it at the time, the simple act of reading a book almost thirty years ago changed the direction of his life. He recounts: “After reading Charles Chiniquy’s autobiography, Fifty Years in the Church of Rome in 1986 I was so fascinated and curious about what Chiniquy had said, particularly about President Lincoln’s assassination that I began researching the ex-priest’s life.” Serup has spent 22 years researching the connection between Charles Chiniquy and President Lincoln, the result being the book Who Killed President Lincoln?
About the Book
In 1885, the former Catholic priest Charles Chiniquy, published his autobiography Fifty Years in the Church of Rome. A 2009 biography declares that he remains Canada’s best-selling author of all time. Thirteen years after it was first printed, 70 editions of the book were circulating and it had been translated into at least nine languages. In it, Chiniquy made the startling claim that officials and laymen from the Catholic Church had, in fact been responsible for the murder of his very close friend, Abraham Lincoln.
Over a period of some 22 years, author and independent historical researcher Paul Serup assessed Chiniquy’s claims. The result of his meticulous research makes a strong and compelling case that a Catholic plot led to the assassination of one of history’s most famous heads of state. It’s a story of a conspiracy that seems to be much more than ‘just a theory’
