Rex Quondam, Rexque Futurus: The Heroic Role of King Arthur Throughout History

by Joshua Darwin

William Shakespeare once wrote that “cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.” The deeper meaning, of course, is that the cowardly may experience many forms of moral, spiritual, and emotional death throughout their time on this earth, but a person who is heroic and honourable will only die physically. According to legend, the tomb of King Arthur is marked by the cryptic inscription, “Here lies Arthur, the Once and Future King.” Although this epithet is meant to signify the promise of Arthur’s prophesied messianic return, the phrase may also be adapted to the premise that the character of King Arthur is a changing, dynamic hero who serves as a touchstone for the ideals of the various times and cultures in which his tales have been ...

A Short Introduction to Saint Ambrose

by John Lord

Of the great Fathers, few are dearer to the Church than Ambrose, Archbishop of Milan, both on account of his virtues and the dignity he gave to the episcopal office.Nearly all the great Fathers were bishops, but I select Ambrose as the representative of their order, because he was more illustrious as a prelate than as a theologian or orator, although he stood high as both. He contributed more than any man who preceded him to raise the power of bishops as one of the controlling agencies of society for more than a thousand years.The episcopal office, aside from its spiritual aspects, had become a great worldly dignity as early as the fourth century. It gave its possessor rank, power, wealth,—a superb social position, even in the eyes of worldly men. “Make me but bishop of Rome,” said a...

1814: Crime and Capital Punishment:

by XerXes Xu

This year we remember the outbreak of the First World War, one hundred years ago. This ended a century of relative peace in Europe, a century of great technological progress in which the modern world was born and a century of huge social change in England. We easily recognise the world of 1914, with trains, planes and buses. 1814 is not so easily recognisable, but it was also a cusp year. Napoleon surrendered, the French wars were near an end, a page was turning and a better future beckoned. However, in 1814, in many ways the social institutions of England remained medieval, none more so than the criminal justice system. There were 222 capital offences on the statute book, often for relatively minor offences. A child of eight was sentenced to death at the Old Bailey, London's main criminal...

The Ringling Chronicles: Rinascimento

by Tim Whitney

What does John Ringling (of the Ringling Brother's Circus fame), Filippo Brunelleschi, Donatello (the sculptor not the Ninja Turtle), Massacio, Giorgio Visari, Leonardo da Vinci, The Medici Family, and a 12 year old girl from Sarasota, Florida all have in common? They are all characters in Whitney's captivating new novel, 'Rinascimento', the first in his art history/time traveling series, The Ringling Chronicles.

Join Michela, a brilliant yet quirky young hero as she races through time to rescue a stranded time traveler, meets the greatest artists of the Renaissance, and assists Brunelleschi with the competition for the commission of the Duomo, one of the greatest architectural marvels of all time.

It's one heck of a Renaissance ride....
