‘Father of cappuccino’ beatified

The week's news at a glance.

Vatican City

Pope John Paul II has beatified the 17th-century monk who led an anti-Turkish crusade to keep the Ottomans out of Europe. Father Marco d’Aviano, a Capuchin monk, rallied Catholics and Protestants before the Battle of Vienna in 1683, which halted the Ottoman army’s advance into Europe. According to legend, the fleeing Turks left behind sacks of bitter coffee, which the Viennese sweetened with cream and honey. The resulting light-brown beverage was the same color as d’Aviano’s Capuchin robe, and was dubbed cappuccino.
