  1. Re: Vikings - New History Series

    In the show Osburh has a daughter, Alfred is the only boy.

    I think they would really need to speak only with authorities, so latin should be enough.Also, I guess the vast majority of the common...
  2. Re: Vikings - New History Series

    So, Alfred the Great is a bastard? :thumbsdow


    Also, didn't he have older brothers?


    Language of the Franks....wouldn't Latin be enough?

  5. Re: Why was Commodus so unlike Marcus Aurelius?

    That is not the point.The fact is that the successor, in the Principate, was always chosen in the family, and when adopting (if there was no other alternative) the preferred choice was to adopt...
  6. Re: Why was Commodus so unlike Marcus Aurelius?

    Yep, even in the early Principate it would have been pretty tough for an Emperor to disown a biological son, even harder by Marcus Aurelius' time.

    Also, Commodus wasn't really left alone in Rome...

  8. Re: Berlusconi's aquital on sex scandal confirmed!

    Not surprising, the final ruling is about legitimacy not merit.If the last court believed he didn't know the girl's age, there is no way he could have been sentenced this time.At max he risked a new...

    Re: ISIS captures town in Libya

    In North Africa? Invasion of British colonies.

    Libya prior to WWII, after 20 years of struggle, was a story of success in colonial experiences (as much colonies can be).

    Re: ISIS captures town in Libya

    Italy's military command is studying options for Libya.Italy has a good navy, decent airforce, the possibility to send a force of 20/30 000 high quality troops (so 60k in two turns per year).In...

    There was indeed a collapse.I recommend Bryan Ward-Perkins' work.

  23. Re: Was Constantine the man who ultimately doomed the Empire?

    Perhaps, we don't know.Though it seems that after it stopped it was considered to be a useless measure by all Tetrarchs at the time.

    Persecution was already over.
  25. Re: Was Constantine the man who ultimately doomed the Empire?

    You are right, but I think Constantine's propaganda actually shows how he was much more committed to christianity than supporting paganism.I believe he kept being PM just to not piss off the pagans....
  26. Re: The Parthenon marbles are the world's most beautiful art – and that's why we should give them back

  27. Re: The Parthenon marbles are the world's most beautiful art – and that's why we should give them back

    Yeah, Romans and Greeks had a different concept when it came to male organs.Though I do wonder if the Greek smallfolk felt the same about the penis as the artists did.

  29. Re: Was Constantine the man who ultimately doomed the Empire?

    Your point was that the fact Constantine only received baptism on his deathbed demostrates he wasn't so conviced about christianity.That was your point, a theory with no basis.You jumped to a...
  30. Re: Was Constantine the man who ultimately doomed the Empire?

    It doesn't mean much yes, it just means enough to render your point moot.Why wait?It's a theological question, basically baptism was considered the final act of a christian religious formation.

  31. Re: Was Constantine the man who ultimately doomed the Empire?

    Fun fact, receiving baptimism on the point of the death was common for many christians, bishops included

    State sanctioned persecution started later yes, but Constatine inaugurated the policy of...
