Since Pope Francis was inaugurated in March, he’s been up to a lot of liberal shenanigans. He thinks homophobia and debates over abortion are a waste of time and is showing by example how love and humility are at the core of what it means to be Christian, from washing the feet of women to turning down the papal apartment.

At the front door before they even opened the tomb, they found jars and vases indicating that this was likely an important person. When they removed the slab, they found a small vaulted chamber with the remains of two individuals on stone platform beds. They believed the first skeleton to be the remains of an Etruscan prince who was holding a spear and had a fibulae at his chest which indicated he had been dressed in a mantle. He was accompanied by the cremated remains of his wife who was jeweled and placed on the second platform, and food remains within a large bronze basin at his feet. A number of grave goods, which included large Greek Corinthian vases and precious ornaments, lay on the floor.

Some of Johann Sebastian Bach’s greatest works may have actually been written by his wife. According to a new documentary about to premiere in London, some of the most famous works by the “father of all harmony,” Johann Sebastian Bach, might have actually been composed by his wife, Anna Magdalena.
The theory–put forth by a professor of music, composer, and document forensics expert–is circumstantial but plausible, according to the Washington Post. The argument rests on three legs: The pieces, according to the researchers, deviate from other Bach works in significant structural and technical respects; the manuscripts appear to be in the hand of Anna Magdalena with one front page actually saying “written by Mrs Bach” in French; and there is no proof Bach actually composed the works, only the possibly groundless assumption the composer wrote everything attributed to him.
