Catalan Universe: Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer

Jacint Verdaguer i Santaló (1845-1902), poet and priest, was one of the greatest figures of Catalan literature, of the Renaixença, el Príncep dels Poetes Catalans, the Prince of Catalan Poets. Pope Leo XIII received him in audience in 1878, and they talked about Verdaguer's L'Atlàntida (I mention this, as  the memory of a great friend of mine comes to mind: he was considering Leo XIII the most important Pope in modern history).
