Which of these paintings depicting the same subject is better?
Who would you consider the most revered heroes in european history?
I'd nominate Spartacus or Joan of Arc
Hi /his/, I'm trying to find information of East Asia, specifically things about the Chinese Empire, Japan, the Mongols, and India. I also want to know a bit about different mythologies/religions as well.
I want to create a fantasy world based off East Asia, anything you could tell me would really help.
Are the Abrahamic faiths authoritarian because of the inherent cultural attitudes of middle-eastern peoples?
In antiquity it was believed by all middle easterners that humans are born to be slaves of the Gods, and that good person unquestioningly serves his masters.
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all hold these same views.
The middle-east has always loved slavery so it's probably not much of a surprise

Let's have a discussion on African slave trade shall we? I am pretty new to the subject and admittedly I only want to learn about it so I can argue with "WE WUZ KINGZ" proponantes and the fact that they sold their own into slavery across the known world.
Let's start with the birth of America. Were the slaves used to build the nation 'sold' by their own kind or were they 'taken'?
ere the slaves used to build the nation 'sold' by their own kind or were they 'taken'?
they didn't build the nation, they picked cotton for 2% of the population, stealing jobs and wages from the poorest classes.
Most slaves were taken from other ethnic groups, not from within their own people with the exception of criminals
Periodically europeans would raid for slaves in the less organized areas of the west coast, it was a risky venture and most preferred to just bu from locals on the coast
Africans already practiced slavery, and sometimes sold slaves to merchants (Arabs and Jews originally). When demand from European colonists in America increased, they started raiding rival tribes specifically to acquire slaves to sell. Merchants didn't go around capturing slaves themselves, no.
On a related note, slavery was first introduced to British America when a Mozambican Negro successfully sued for the right to keep his slave in Virginia.
Is it because the order was founded to counteract the Reformation or because it didn't work as well against that when compared to, say, the Dominicans who were founded to counteract the Albegensian Heresies?
Because it's hilarious and pathetic how hard the reach with stuff like
>Muh Jesuit Oath!
>Muh Chick Tracts!
>t. Alberto Rivera!
What was the population of Rome and the surrounding Latin cities on average between 350BC and 290BC? Like basically in between the Samnite Wars.
>slavs BTFOed both Hitler and Napoleon.
what century do you find the most interesting? For me its the 15th:
>the climax and end of the hundred years war
>the rise to dominance of gunpowder weapons
>the end of the Byzantine empire
>discovery of the Americas by Europeans
>start off riding horses, owning slaves, exploring "mysterious" untouched blank areas on the map, and living with absolute monarchies
>end up with faster than sound aircraft, space travel, internet, electron microscopes, and the highest standards of living ever
Could it have ever become a reality?
Hitler was fucked as soon as he failed to take Moscow, and even if he had his troops would have been bled dry in the east trying to hold down everything west of the Urals and eventually Britain and the US would probably have fucked them up.
>D Day doesn't happen
>Germany wins in russia
>America drops A-Bombs on both Germany and Japan and they surrender
I guess losing the liberation of france without A-Bombs would be bad culturally.
How can you justify this? In case anyone missed the point, how can you believe in something so new, so fervently?
How have the Christian church historically chosen to explain that virtuous people who denied Christ or never had a chance to accept Christ been sent to the same hell murderess and other evildoers are sent to?
Pic somewhat related.
Shitty Op grammar, sorry.
How have, the various Christian Churches, through history chosen to explain that people who by Christians standards have been sent to hell simply because never accepting Christ?
Many of them never even had the slightest chance to accept Christ, such as the American Indians before Columbus.
Was Julius Evola an angry crank who wrote ahistorical screeds, or has his work been increasingly vindicated by the course of modernity?
What does /his/ think about this guy? I tried to watch a couple of his videos, but I his voice annoyed me too much.
I don't know why you guys idolize the Crusades.
It was 1 successful campaign, then 200 years of getting a humiliating ass-kicking.
No amount of DEUS VULT memes will ever change that.
