My Ancestors? Dutch Crypto-Jews?

Standard

Yes, millions of people have European ancestors that were Jewish and hid the fact. After Spain and Portugal’s Inquisitions, and France, Italy, Germany, Russia and Poland’s persecutions, European Jews wanted to own land and be free of special taxes and fees imposed upon them. Why don’t you know? Because telling their children could have exposed them. After a few generations the knowledge was completely lost. But today it’s possible to uncover the truth and it makes a great story.

The Medieval Marketplace

Standard

During medieval times, the town center was the marketplace. The marketplace was also used for community members to speak their political views and a meeting place where organized groups met. There was often a stone foundation which held a cross and upon the cross’s pedestal one would stand and proselytize, preach, announce, etc. In Rome, the marketplace was the forum and was used for community meetings and place to speak publicly. Today this tradition is a remnant of the past when we enter the grocery market and are greeted by political activists requesting our signatures upon their petitions.

Divination – Fortune Telling – Using the Bible or the Koran

Standard

Just open up one of these books and the first text you read is your prophecy. Sounds like Tarot cards (playing cards bearing allegorical figures used in fortune-telling) but this form of divination is ancient. For those seeking God’s will, it was called “drawing lots” or “casting”. (Think of tossing the dice.) During difficult times the Israelites would “draw lots” to find God’s will. They would ask a question and the way it landed or fell would determine the answer. The early Christians also used this method, as did the Bohemians to decide upon Bishops.

Two Hundred Years of Arab Invasions Before Finally Becoming Muslim

Standard

Am I the only one who thinks twice when hearing Georgia in the news? There is the state of Georgia in the US and then there is Georgia, the sovereign state in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. What an interesting history Eurasia’s Georgia has had. First their oral history proclaims they descend from Noah’s son Japheth and secondly, this small state had suffered 200 years worth of Arab invasions and persecution before finally becoming Muslim. This small Eurasian state has had short histories of independence and became a Russian province after seeking Russia’s help during the 1600s when there were wars raging between the Persians and Turks.
