53 I wasn't so far off about his starting at twelve:

"In 1515 [when Parmigianino was indeed twelve], his uncle received a commission from Nicolò Zangrandi for the decoration of a chapel in San Giovanni Evangelista; a work later completed by a young Parmigianino. By the age of eighteen, he had already completed the Bardi Altarpiece."

109 This portrait is intriguing. Parmigianino shows a happy, or at least satisfied, woman living in riches and comfort. She appears healthy with that alabaster skin. She is dressed in expensive clothing which is arranged in a fashionable manner. I'm guessing she is a courtesan. Her expression is beguiling and playful. The hint of a smile reminds me of the Mona Lisa. The contrast of the title and the image is effective and subtle.

I wonder if her elongated fingers are meant to imply something to the viewer (an inside joke?) or if it is some error by the artist. Given Parmigianino's obvious talent, realistic style and brilliant colors, the fingers strike an odd note.

124 109 This portrait is intriguing. Parmigianino shows a happy, or at least satisfied, woman living in riches and comfort. She appears healthy with that alabaster skin. She is dressed in expensive clothing which is arranged in a fashionable manner. I'm guessing she is a courtesan. Her expression is beguiling and playful. The hint of a smile reminds me of the Mona Lisa. The contrast of the title and the image is effective and subtle.

145 Fake news!!!!

Turkish Slave (Portrait of a Young Woman; Italian: Schiava turca) is a painting by the Italian Mannerist artist Parmigianino, executed around 1533. It is housed in the Galleria nazionale di Parma, northern Italy.

The title of "Turkish Slave" derives from the misinterpretation of the sitter's headwear as a turban. It is in fact a typical headdress of noblewomen of the time called a balzo, with examples appearing in numerous contemporary portraits. She is wearing a chemise under her elaborately sleeved dress called a guimp and is holding a feather fan used as a flywhisk.

This is valid. Constantinople was an explicitly Christian city- Constantine meant it to be so. The original village of Byzantium was not much more than a few shacks, but it had a great location- which is why Constantine picked it, tore it down and made a whole new capitol.

As Google summarizes..The Buraq is a magical horse in Islamic tradition that served as the mount of the Islamic prophet Muhammad during his journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and up through the heavens and back by night.

I recall reading that he originally wanted the direction of prayer to be toward Jerusalem. But then the Jews rebufffed him, so he had a change of plans.

There also is supposedly an early Islamic coin depicting Mo with a cross.

So the guy was just ripping off religious ideas right and left, and got all butthurt when the Jews and Christians wouldn't go along with his death cult.

People with natural immunity to COVID-19 have better protection against the respiratory disease than those who received mRNA vaccines, according to a new study.

"Natural immunity conferred substantial protection against COVID-19 hospitalization," the authors of the study wrote. "Our study showed that natural immunity offers stronger and longer-lasting protection against infection, symptoms, and hospitalization compared to vaccine-induced immunity."

In addition to what CBD said, city councils and other Western government institutions are going to be pressured, protested/threatened into discussing this war.
As mentioned in the EMT, Denver city council ended meeting last night early because most (the entire) roster of scheduled citizen speakers were anti-Israel activists.

458 Amazing to think the Roman empire was only 50 some years short of surviving to Columbus' discovery of the Americas.

The Ottoman's claimed to be successors, and more accurately so did Trebizond which survived until 1461...still not quite 1492 of course

Again: Rome is not Rome without Rome.

Hell, Justinian understood that. Constantinople/Byzantium/Later Roman Empire was it's own thing. And Hell, even ROME was not Rome after Augustus and then later Diocletian and ... damn.

Go look at the original UN Mandate that created Israel, it was a two state solution. And the Arabs lost it all because from the start they refused to abide by it.

Posted by: Anna Puma at November 28, 2023 10:58 AM (HdzIW)

Trans-Palestine for the Arabs, Cis-Palestine for the Jews. Of course the Arabs wanted none of that; they wanted it all, and even massacred jews and killed their own who sold land to jews. See 1929 massacre at Hebron, which, until 1929 had a continuous presence of jews dating back thousands of years.

467 347 The siege of Constantinople in 1453 was a very near-run thing. Had it gone on much longer, ol' Mehmed would've had to pack up and go home.

Course, he would've tried again and eventually succeeded. But still.
Posted by: Bulgaroctonus at November 28, 2023 10:40 AM (JrojV)

A testament to the strength of the Theodosian walls is that Mehmet may have had up to 80,000 soldiers in his attack force; Constantinople had at most only 7,000 defenders. By the time it was taken, the city had become a mostly symbolic shell of its former self.

468 It is impossible for a black person to be racist because they do not have political power.

That's why the entire political apparatus of the US must be bent to offer as much political power to blacks as possible.

Yep. And the weird thing is that, according to Orthodox theology of the time, the end of the world was supposed to come in the year 1492.
Posted by: Bulgaroctonus at November 28, 2023 10:56 AM (JrojV)

It did.

Christopher Columbus committed genocide against Native Americans and invented slavery. The world ended then.

Posted by: Sponge - F*ck Joe Biden at November 28, 2023 10:59 AM (Zz0t1)

That's right. The Aztecs only started killing slaves for sacrifices after 1492. And the turks didn't take slaves until after 1492. And the blacks didn't have other blacks as slaves in Africa until 1492.

Uh, the "line of succession" for the Roman Empire is for some general to seize the throne. Acclaim from the soldiers for their Imperator. Stable dynasties and inheritance tends to be more of a post-Roman thing.

477 And hell, one could argue what Augustus (or Caesar before him) did was NOT a 'legal' succession. The senate itself was in abrogation of the Oath that no man would be King of Rome.

478 Not to split hairs, but does "Turkish slave" mean that the woman was a slave of the Turks, or was she a Turk who'd been enslaved?

It certainly was decimated...by Syphilis...which originated from the america's and was carried back to the "Known world".
We often hear a lot about "New diseases introduced to the indigenous by the colonizers" Seldom if ever the "New" diseases brought back to the explores homes.
