Edith Stein: The Life and Legacy of the Jewish Philosopher Who Became a Catholic Saint

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contents“As a child of the Jewish people who, by the grace of God, for the past eleven years has also been a child of the Catholic Church, I dare to speak to the Father of Christianity about that which oppresses millions of Germans. For weeks we have seen deeds perpetrated in Germany which mock any sense of justice and humanity, not to mention love of neighbor. For years the leaders of National Socialism have been preaching hatred of the Jews...But the responsibility must fall, after all, on those who brought them to this point and it also falls on those who keep silent in the face of such happenings.” – Edith Stein To say Edith Stein lived a remarkable life would be a dramatic understatement. Born in ...

The Flat Earth Creator: The Demiurge, Yaldabaoth & the Father of Lies

by David Allen

The Flat Earth recently popularized in the mainstream by Tila Tequila, B.O.B. and Neil deGrasse Tyson has created a bit of a storm online, making internet celebrities out of various Flat Earth proponents and as with any targeted community things have become a bit chaotic.

I think with good reason though as you'll see from my research into a seemingly unrelated topic: The Nag Hammadi Library & the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Most people in the Flat Earth community seem to eventually or at some point gravitate towards the recognized biblical scriptures that reference the creation of a stationary earth, created by YHWH (God) and although this may seem like a convenient proof to some, the deception doesn't end with the globe earth; those perpetuating this globe earth fallacy ar...

Napoleon vs the Old and New World Orders: How the Rothschilds Conquered Britain & France

by M King

We all know, at least vaguely, the story about Napoleon Bonaparte. You know -- the one about the self-professed son of a republican revolution against monarchy, who then installed himself as a monarch. Napoleon was, we are told, an egomaniacal tyrant with "short man's inferiority complex" who tried to enslave the European continent. Led by the brave British, a coalition of “The Good Guys" banded together to thwart the ambitions of the great “usurper” and trouble-maker of Europe.

There is just one problem with this official narrative of the giant historical figure of the 1800’s. To put it gently – it’s a damn lie. (surprise – surprise).

Now, one can easily understand the reason for the propagation of lies and slanders aimed at Napoleon being perpetua...

The Early Life of Miss Anne Lister and the Curious Tale of Miss Eliza Raine

by Patricia L Hughes

Two young girls pledge undying love, marry each other secretly and promise to live together when they reach the age of twenty-one - but nothing works out as planned. This tale of Georgian England is from real diaries and letters revealing two women whose circumstances changed beyond belief. If you're looking for the sedate world of Jane Austen you won't find it here. This is the wild world of nineteenth century northern England made famous by the Bronte sisters who lived nearby, and based their characters on these real people. Eliza Raine was almost certainly the model for Mrs Rochester in Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Eyre', while Anne Lister was depicted as 'Shirley' by Anne Bronte. Anne Lister was born in 1791 and started life as the eldest daughter of a poor branch of a landed family. Her d...

Da Vinci and Schrödinger’s Cat

by L. A. Braun

Curious about the time-capsule of secrets that had been hidden in Leonardo Da Vinci's work? The initials of 'SC' in its various forms had been found all over his artwork. Often, the ‘SC’ had been associated with a Lion. ‘Schrödinger’s Cat’ (because ‘Schrödinger’s Cat’ is an ‘SC’) is a thought-provoking conundrum in which to explore the ‘SC’s meaning. ‘Schrödinger’s Cat’ is an entertaining paradox where a particle can be seen to exist in several different states simultaneously. Likewise, the ’SC’ can be seen to be everywhere and yet it is nowhere at the same time. We explore the meaning of the ‘SC' by focusing on the Lions and other Big Cats in the ancient artwork as being ‘Schrödinger's Big Cats.’ Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a jour...

Eva Gore Booth, The Other Sister: The Remarkable Sybling of Constance Markievicz

by Brighid O'Sullivan

Why would a wealthy Anglo/Irish woman choose to leave the splendor of her large exquisite family home nestled in the lush green hills of Ireland, her own private gardens, and a fairy tale palace where everyone loved her, to live in the slums of Manchester?
By the late 20th century, Europe was not only a battlefield, but living conditions of many European cities were only slightly better to those in war torn countries. Tensions rose while topics such as socialism, women's rights, worker's reform, and Home Rule in Ireland set fuses for what was to become one of the most turbulent times in European history. The world was changing but not without much bloodshed both in Socialist countries and at home. Eva Gore Booth yearned to change all that but how?

Remembering and Disremembering the Dead: Posthumous Punishment, Harm and Redemption over Time (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Floris Tomasini

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book is a multidisciplinary work that investigates the notion of posthumous harm over time. The question what is and when is death, affects how we understand the possibility of posthumous harm and redemption. Whilst it is impossible to hurt the dead, it is possible to harm the wishes, beliefs and memories of persons that once lived. In this way, this book highlights the vulnerability of the dead, and makes connections to a historical oeuvre, to add critical value to similar concepts in history that are overlooked by most philosophers. There is a long historical view of case studies that illustrate the conceptual character of posthumous punishment; that is, dissection and gibbetting of the criminal corpse after the Murder Act (1752),...

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Mortality and its Timings: When is Death? (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Shane McCorristine

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This volume provides a series of illuminating perspectives on the timings of death, through in-depth studies of Shakespearean tragedy, criminal execution, embalming practices, fears of premature burial, rumours of Adolf Hitler’s survival, and the legal concept of brain death. In doing so, it explores a number of questions, including: how do we know if someone is dead or not? What do people experience at the moment when they die? Is death simply a biological event that comes about in temporal stages of decomposition, or is it a social event defined through cultures, practices, and commemorations? In other words, when exactly is death? Taken together, these contributions explore how death emerges in a series of stages that are uncertain, p...
