Theatrum Pacis [1684]

Click pe imagine pt. detalii

O imagine foarte interesanta, publicata de Wolfgang Moritz Endter. Asa cum puteti vedea, alaturi de Zeii “pagani” se afla si 2 (?) personaje din mitologia crestina: fata cu cadelnita si, cred, cea cu sabia. Deasupra tuturor troneaza – iconoclast – Tetragramatonul.

Evident, asemenea convietuire nu avea cum sa fie privita cu ochi buni… Inclin sa cred ca exemplul de mai sus este unul din ultimele publicate inainte de Marea Curatenie.

Theatrum Pacis… You’re kidding me, wright?! Adica pt. asta si-au dat viata hoarde de martiri, right?! Adica pt. asta Parintii au tunat si au fulgerat secole de-a randul, right?!

Well..let’s put a smirk on that face: psalm 95, 4-5. :D

They ceased to be True

“The [christian] monks are spreading out like torrents across the countryside; and in ruining the temples, they are also ruining the countryside itself at one and the same time. For to snatch from a region the temple which protects it is like tearing out its eye, killing it, annihilating it. The temples are the very life of the countryside; around them are built houses and villages, in their shadow a succession of generations have been born up until the present day. It is in those temples that farmers have placed their hopes for themselves and their wives and children, for their oxen and for the ground they have sown or planted. A country region whose temple has been destroyed in this manner is lost, because the despairing villagers no longer have the will to work. It would be pointless to exert themselves, they think, because they have been deprived of the Gods who made their labors prosper.”

Despite Libanius’s plea it was too late. The countryside had already been “blinded and the Gods were being driven from the land”. For non-Christians, the loss of these shrines marked the end of a way of life. The followers of the Absolute True God were about to start their domination.

Intreaga Scandinavie este presarata de pietre, de felul celor pe care le puteti vedea in trailer-ul de mai jos. Ele exista si in Estonia (se numesc rändrahn = stanci  calatoare) sau Islanda. In Estonia fiecare piatra de acest gen este ocrotita de lege, are un nume si o istorie in spatele ei.

Iata ce cred islandezii despre aceste stanci:

Arborii sacri ai Estoniei.

Arborii sacri ai Estoniei

Cativa din arborii sacri ai Estoniei, cei care au supravietuit furiei crestine ce a calcat la pamant sub senila-i secularizanta, la inceputul secolului al XIII-lea, o multime de marturii ale vechilor credinte ce apartineau acestui popor.

Stejarul certurilor din Harjumaa, nordul Estoniei. Se numeste astfel datorita puterii sale de a aduce impacarea in cadrul tinerelor familii. Perechea aflata in dificultate trebuia sa stea in marea scorbura a stejarului pentru intreaga noapte. Si cum in aceasta deschizatura se putea sta doar in picioare, se spune ca a doua zi orisice tensiune era devenita amintire.
