There is a detail that is not reported by Fick, that at least 2 other sources mention: Alfonso Diaz committed suicide:
- German Wikipedia article on Juan Diaz here, and
- John E. Longhurst's book (non-Lutheran) on Spanish Lutherans, Part One, Chapter 5, page 81: "...a brief reference to one Alfonso Diaz, cleric at Rome, who committed suicide (I think) about 1555"
"So was the glorious and holy martyr of Jesus Christ, Juan Diaz, treacherously murdered by his own brother, this godless Popish Cain, because he did not worship the Antichrist, the Roman Pope and that mark of the beast, that is, did not want to accept the Popish doctrine."Do you hear Pastor Fick feel honored to present this history?
"I adorned the glorious martyr's crown, he triumphs in Heaven ..."Oh, dear Pastor Fick, so I adorned your history that adorned the glorious martyr's crown of... Juan Diaz. May his memory be renewed once again, as the dear Pastor Fick renewed it in 1854, now in this year 2015. A thousand times I would not want the fate of Juan Diaz, and yet his God is my God; also the God of Hermann Fick is my God... and so I see that He is a God who does not desert us, but stands with us in our tribulations. The Bible tells me so. Amen!
In the next Part 22i is the Annotations for Fick's sources of information which also adds to this history of Juan Diaz.
