Medieval refuge

Posted August 24th, 2016 at 12:23 AM by AlpinLuke

The Lost Sword of Scotland

Posted May 13th, 2015 at 05:50 AM by AlpinLuke

I was thinking to a curious discovery I made in Scotland [near Tyndrum, among the Western Highlands]. I had occasion to visit a little lake [there they call a lake "loch"] with this particular stone with an engraved sword on it.

This sword would be in the lake [which is just the Loch of the Lost Sword]. There is a local tradition saying that...

French Monarchy and Church

Posted December 13th, 2014 at 12:48 AM by AlpinLuke

I would talk a bout a process, an evolution, regarding the role [not only the influence] of the Church in the history of the House of France [the Capetian dynasty]. By extension this role was already visible before, anyway if we focus our attention on the period from late X to early XIV century CE, we have to start from the changing economical context in the French lands.
