The Divine Comedy: Friar Alberigo in translator notes - John Ciardi

This quote was added by promethes
In 1284 Alberigo's brother Manfred struck him in the course of an argument. He pretended to let it pass, but in 1285 he invited Manfred and his son to a banquet and had them murdered. The signal to the assassins was the words: "Bring in the fruit." "Friar Alberigo's bad fruit," became a proverbial saying.
