Nara Japan, 767-770: A Translation from Shoku Nihongi

by Ross Bender

In 769 the Empress Shotoku received a report that the oracle of Hachiman in Kyushu had decreed that her Buddhist advisor, the priest Dokyo, should be made emperor. She sent Wake no Kiyomaro to distant Usa to verify the oracle. However, he brought back an oracle saying that only one of imperial blood should accede to the throne. Dokyo was exiled, and Empress Shotoku died in 770. Japan in the 8th century experienced sudden and intense economic and cultural growth. At the eastern terminus of the Silk Road, the islands participated in a cosmopolitan East Asian sphere, receiving new innovations in art, architecture, law, and religion from both Tang China and the Korean peninsula. The disruption was so extreme that some have compared this period to the modern Meiji era, when Japan opened itself ...

Khufu The Great Pyramid Conclusion The Search is Over

by Robert Crielly

The looting of pyramids and mastabas in Egypt was big business especially just after a Pharaoh was entombed with his enormous wealth in treasures. Historians tell us that looting was practiced at all levels of society and was not particularly regarded as a disgraceful occupation. The looters are thought to have held inside knowledge from having been involved in the construction of the tombs and at times they were even part of the funerary procession. Mummified Pharaohs bodies were stolen and sold to collectors or desecrated. Nothing was sacred.The Medjay had a job on their hands trying to maintain security and although they were feared by many, it didn’t stop robbers repeating raids on tombs as the rewards of their ill-gotten gains were very high indeed.The penalty for being caught ...

Nara Japan, 758-763: A Translation From Shoku Nihongi

Japan in the 8th century experienced sudden and intense economic and cultural growth. At the eastern terminus of the Silk Road, the islands participated in a cosmopolitan East Asian sphere, receiving new innovations in art, architecture, law, and religion from both Tang China and the Korean peninsula. The disruption was so extreme that some have compared this period to the modern Meiji era, when Japan opened itself to the West and rapidly transformed itself into a modern nation. Nara was the capital for most of the century; it was an urban center with a population of about 100,000. The years 758-63 saw the abdication of Empress Koken and the accession to the throne of Emperor Junnin. Although Junnin was the titular ruler until 764, historians regard him as the puppet of the powerful noble...

Collection of Secrets and Mysteries of the Ancient World: Travels on the history of mankind

by Sarah B. Williams

It would seem that for modern science with its progressive technologies there should be no secrets. However, despite all the achievements, there are still many "white spots" in the history of the ancient world.Huge pyramids, cities buried under the stratum of the earth, cities lying at the bottom of the ocean, ancient technologies, tremendous mind and imagination of modern people - all this is the history of the Earth unknown to us. There was a time when other civilizations existed on Earth and they were different from us. Our civilization for several hundred years has formed a coherent scientific theory about the history of our planet. Archaeological finds that do not fit into the dogmas of this theory are either silenced or closed with the “secret” stamp. But, these finds every year ...

The Macedonian Dynasty: From 867 to 1057 A.D

by Albert Vogt

 THE race of Leo the Isaurian, which in no inglorious fashion had filled the whole of the eighth and ninth centuries with its iconoclastic struggles, social reforms, and palace intrigues, nominally died out in 867 in the person of a debauched and incapable young Emperor, Michael III, known as the Drunkard. The man who in consequence ascended the throne by means of a crime, and founded the Macedonian dynasty, was Basil I. To study the personal character and home policy of the sovereigns directly or indirectly descended from him down to 1057, is, in effect, to depict the leading aspects of the period, save for the ever-present struggle for existence against external foes......

It can also be seen within the art of the period. Scholars, artists, and philosophers began rejecting the collective ideals, and instead, they focused on the cult of the individual. Sculptures were no longer that of gods and ideals but of individuals, and philosophers cultivated the ideas of individual happiness and pleasure. Religious cults, such as the cult of Isis, formed around the same concepts, claiming to offer the secret of immortality and prosperity to those who sought it for themselves.The Hellenistic age brought a great deal of change in ...

The Ghost of Rome: Volume I - The Gothic Wars

by Virgil Cain

It was famously stated by the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes that “the Papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof”.“The Ghost of Rome” explores that concept in detail, utilizing a character-driven narrative to bring life to the final years of the greatest empire the world has ever known. It is the rare work of fiction that informs even as it entertains, illuminating an era that is often derided as the decline of an empire rather than the birth of a kingdom.As Rome fell into disrepair, the Kingdom of Christ emerged. It was a transition so seamless that one can only be intrigued by the machinations that allowed the improbable rise of Christianity from a lone hilltop in Judea to conquer the Roman world inside of 350 yea...
