Venetian language

Map showing the spreading of Romance languages; Venetian is number 15 Venetian or Venetan (Venetian: vèneto, vènet or łéngua vèneta) is a Romance language spoken as a native language by almost four million people,[7] mostly in the Veneto region of Italy, where most of the five million inhabitants can understand it. It is sometimes spoken and often well understood outside Veneto, in Trentino, Friuli, Venezia Giulia, Istria, and some towns of Dalmatia. Venetian is usually referred to as an Italian dialect although it is a Western Romance language, a different branch of Romance from that of Italian.

Some authors include it among the Gallo-Italic languages,[8] but by most authors, it is treated as separate.[9] Typologically, Venetian has little in common with the Gallo-Italic languages of northwestern Italy, but shows some affinity to nearby Istriot. History[edit] Virtually all modern Venetian speakers are diglossic with Italian. Chair - chairs, century, legs, arms, seat, carved and indeed.

Illustration by Robert Neubecker In the fall of 1457, villagers in Savigny, France witnessed a sow and six piglets attack and kill a 5-year-old boy.


Today, the animals would be summarily killed. But errant 15th-century French pigs went to court. And it wasn’t for a show trial—this was the real deal, equipped with a judge, two prosecutors, eight witnesses, and a defense attorney for the accused swine. Witness testimony proved beyond reasonable doubt that the sow had killed the child. Such a case might seem bizarre to modern observers, but animal trials were commonplace public events in medieval and early modern Europe. Scholars who have explored animals on trial generally avoid addressing this mentality. While these explanations go partway toward elucidating animal trials, none of them fully clarify the practice. Judges routinely considered animals’ personal circumstances before making a legal decision. Intentions mattered as well. Perotin: Alleluia Nativitas gloriose virginis. Things to Note Perotin uses the chant Alleluia Nativitas, (score),(mp3) as a basis for the two organal voices.

Perotin: Alleluia Nativitas gloriose virginis

The need to coordinate more than two lines of music posed a particular problem for the composers and consequently a system of rhythmic notation was devised. Perotin uses different types of organum in this work, fluid music in the two upper voices over a long held note (a drone of sorts); similar music with more change in the chant line (discant: see ex semine at 6:00) as well as plainchant itself. The more syllabic sections of the chant are set with the longer held notes and the sections of the chant that are more florid are set with discant.

Chances are, many readers know that wormwood is the key ingredient in the famous European beverage absinthe. Almost as many know little else about this fascinating and beneficial herb.

Wormwood belongs to the genus Artemisia, named for the goddess Artemis. Amalrician. The Amalricians were a pantheist, free love[1] movement named after Amalric of Bena. The beliefs are thought to have influenced the Brethren of the Free Spirit. The beginnings of medieval pantheistic Christian theology lie in the early 13th century, with theologians at Paris, such as David of Dinant, Amalric of Bena, and Ortlieb of Strassburg, and was later mixed with the millenarist theories of Gioacchino da Fiore.

Fourteen followers of Amalric began to preach that "all things are One, because whatever is, is God. " The Canterbury Tales: Character Profiles. Average Overall Rating: 4.5 Total Votes: 1424 The Host or "Harry Bailly": The proprietor of the Tabard Inn where the pilgrims to Canterbury stay before beginning their journey. He accompanies the pilgrims on their journey. It is the Host who devised the scheme of the tales, proposing that each tell two tales on the way to Canterbury, and he frequently mediates arguments between pilgrims and suggests who shall tell the next story.

He has a bit of a class complex, and can be seen regularly toadying up to the upper-class and higher-status characters. The Knight. Les personnages des croisades.

Amalric of Bena (French: Amaury de Bène, Amaury de Chartres; Latin: Almaricus, Amalricus, Amauricus; died c. 1204-1207 AD) was a French theologian and sect leader, after whom the Amalricians are named.

Biography[edit] Amalric was born in the latter part of the 12th century at Bennes, a village between Ollé and Chauffours in the diocese of Chartres. Amalric taught philosophy and theology at the University of Paris and enjoyed a great reputation as a subtle dialectician; his lectures developing the philosophy of Aristotle attracted a large circle of hearers. In 1204 his doctrines were condemned by the university, and, on a personal appeal to Pope Innocent III, the sentence was ratified, Amalric being ordered to return to Paris and recant his errors. His death was caused, it is said, by grief at the humiliation to which he had been subjected. Propositions[edit] Three propositions only can with certainty be attributed to him: Peter Waldo. Peter Waldo, Valdo, Valdes, or Waldes (c. 1140 – c. 1205), also Pierre Vaudès or de Vaux, is credited as the founder of the Waldensians, a Christian spiritual movement of the Middle Ages, descendants of which still exist in various regions of southern Europe.

Life and work[edit] Specific details of his life are largely unknown. Extant sources relate that he was a wealthy clothier and merchant from Lyons and a man of some learning. Enrico Dandolo. Blindness[edit] It is not known for certain when and how Dandolo became blind. The story passed around after the Fourth Crusade was that he had been blinded by the Byzantines during the 1171 expedition to Byzantium (see Vital II Michele). Supposedly, Emperor Manuel Comnenus "ordered his eyes to be blinded with glass; and his eyes were uninjured, but he saw nothing".[1] However, this explanation is certainly false, as Dandolo continued to conduct business and sign documents well after 1171. In Venice it was illegal for a blind person to sign a document, since he/she could not read. Dandolo's blindness appears to have been total. History of Britain and Ireland - Google Books.
