Francesco Forgione (popularly known as Padre Pio), who became the country's best-loved saint after being canonised in 2002 by Pope John Paul IIand who claimed to suffer stigmata or the wounds of Christ in his hands and feet was a fake who used carbolic acid, according to a new book written by historian Sergio Luzzatto.

Luzzatto's controversial new book titled The Other Christ: Padre Pio and the Italy of the 19th Century claims that the wounds were self created using carbolic acid and he claims to have found documentary evidence to prove it in the Vatican's secret archives.
