Synopsis

The doctor of the King of Portugal was so good in his hospital practice, that after his death both King and country peasants worshiped him - to this day, 120 years later. Many worship him as a saint, despite he died as he lived, as an atheist. Some sell merchandise with his image and alleged curative powers, while he was known to shun healers from the hospital.
