Anglo-Saxons: A Captivating Guide to the People Who Inhabited Great Britain from the Early Middle Ages to the Norman Conquest of England

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Anglo-Saxons, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!There was a time before England was united. This was a time before William the Bastard decided to prove to his contemporaries that his bastard moniker would be erased with a swift conquest of the biggest island northwest of Europe. A time before the Battle of Hastings and the year 1066. A time when many petty kingdoms ruled, conquered, and were liberated, time and time again, by a specific people group. A people group that is, in fact, a blend of many and that authors of later dates would collectively call the Anglo-Saxons.With this book, we want to let our readers know how vibrant and lively (as well as deadly) life in Britain was during the perhaps wrongly-titled “Dark Age...

by BUS-STOP GUIDES

BUS STOP READS Are Short Quick Reads.

MARQUISE MARIE BRINVILLIERS: SERIAL KILLER

Poisoning has long been a way of ending life. The ancients initially used plant substances to poison their hunting weapons to kill animals. But, somewhere along the way, somebody figured that what could kill a beast would also kill a man.
During the 17th Century, poisoning had surpassed murder to become a form of art.
The poisoning epidemic tore through Europe, as well as paranoia about being poisoned, especially amongst the upper classes. One infamous case that sent shockwaves through the European aristocracy was that of the serial killer Marquise Marie Brinvilliers.

Celts: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Celtic History and Mythology, Including Their Battles Against the Roman Republic in the Gallic Wars

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Celts, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!Today, the word Celtic means so many things. To most of us, it means something related to Ireland. We think of intricately designed Irish crosses, four-leaf clovers, and some of the more well-known stories of Celtic mythology. However, while Celtic culture has stayed alive in Ireland, its roots run much deeper, and they extend much farther than the small island nation off the coast of modern-day Great Britain. The story of the Celts is one of a rapid rise to prominence followed by a slow decline due to the influence of the Romans. But even so, Celtic culture has remained strong in Europe and has been able to persist to this day. So, even though the Celts represent just a small part o...

Mazarin

by Arthur Hassall

It seems inevitable that Mazarin will always suffer by comparison with Richelieu. The latter, who has been described as the greatest political genius which France has ever produced, appeals to the imagination by the firmness and the success of his policy. The ability with which he managed the foreign affairs of France, and his creation of an administrative system which continued to the Kevolution, place Richelieu in the foremost rank of French statesmen. And yet his successor, though less illustrious, equally deserves to stand among those who have contributed most to the greatness of France. What MM. Hanotaux and d’Avenel have done for Richelieu’s memory has been done for Mazarin by M. Chéruel. Hehas made it impossible for us to regard Mazarin as a mere Italian adventurer, or to agree...

The Pathologisation of Homosexuality in Fascist Italy: The Case of 'G' (Genders and Sexualities in History)

by Gabriella Romano

This open access book investigates the pathologisation of homosexuality during the fascist regime in Italy through an analysis of the case of G., a man with "homosexual tendencies" interned in the Collegno mental health hospital in 1928. No systematic study exists on the possibility that Fascism used internment in an asylum as a tool of repression for LGBT people, as an alternative to confinement on an island, prison or home arrests. This research offers evidence that in some cases it did.The book highlights how the dictatorship operated in a low-key, shadowy and undetectable manner, bending pre-existing legislation. Its brutality was - and still is - difficult to prove. It also emphasises the ways in which existing stereotypes on homosexuality were reinforced by the regime propaganda in s...

Byzantine Empire - East Roman Empire during the rule of the Byzantine Emperor Justin I and Justinian the Great and the foundations of the Roman law

by Interesting History

Justin, I was a Byzantine emperor from 518 to 527, his reign became a prologue to the brilliant reign of his nephew Justinian I. The future Emperor began serving in the army in the reign of Leo as a simple soldier. He did not learn to write to the end of his life. During the Persian campaign, he commanded a separate military detachment. During the mutiny of 514-515, he participated in the defense of Constantinople and the breakthrough of the naval blockade of the city.The entire Roman law, formally, was based on the Law of Twelve Tables. It contained a number of regulations that formed the basis of the entire Roman legal system. This law was never changed or supplemented, it was formally valid throughout the entire Roman history. This, of course, does not mean that the law was perfect. Far...

Modern Sicily: The History and Legacy of the Mediterranean Island Since the Middle Ages

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsIt is hard to find an island on the map more central than Sicily. Located at the crossroads between Europe and Africa, and between the Eastern and Western Mediterranean, Sicily has rarely been governed as an independent, unified state. Nonetheless, the island has always occupied a front-row seat to some of the most important events in history, and nowhere is this more obvious than during antiquity. After the Punic Wars, Sicily would remain a Roman domain until the end of antiquity, and affairs on the island dramatically affected the Romans at home. The First Servile War (135-132 BCE) and Second Servile War (104-100 BCE) both took place in Sicily, and they were perhaps the largest (and temporarily suc...

Dissecting the Criminal Corpse: Staging Post-Execution Punishment in Early Modern England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Elizabeth T. Hurren

Those convicted of homicide were hanged on the public gallows before being dissected under the Murder Act in Georgian England. Yet, from 1752, whether criminals actually died on the hanging tree or in the dissection room remained a medical mystery in early modern society. Dissecting the Criminal Corpse takes issue with the historical cliché of corpses dangling from the hangman’s rope in crime studies. Some convicted murderers did survive execution in early modern England. Establishing medical death in the heart-lungs-brain was a physical enigma. Criminals had large bull-necks, strong willpowers, and hearty survival instincts. Extreme hypothermia often disguised coma in a prisoner hanged in the winter cold. The youngest and fittest were capable of reviving on the dissection table. Many d...

In The Discourse of Modernism, Reiss sets up a theoretical model to describe the process by which one dominant class of discourse is replaced by another. He seeks to demonstrate that each new mode does not constitute a radical break from the past but in fact develops directly from its predecessor....

Viennese popular culture at the turn of the twentieth century was the product of the city’s Jewish and non-Jewish residents alike. While these two communities interacted in a variety of ways to their mutual benefit, Jewish culture was also inevitably shaped by the city’s persistent bouts of antisemitism. This fascinating study explores how Jewish artists, performers, and impresarios reacted to prejudice, showing how they articulated identity through performative engagement rather than anchoring it in origin and descent. In this way, they attempted to transcend a racialized identity even as they indelibly inscribed their Jewish existence into the cultural history of the era....

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...

Queen Elizabeth I: A Biography of A Very Important Queen in World History (The People's Queen of England) (Fascinating World History Episodes Book 10)

A Complete Biography of Queen Elizabeth I – A Very Important Queen in World HistoryFrom the moment she was conceived, Queen Elizabeth I of England was the subject of controversy.

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),...
