Ezekiel's Tomb in Iraq

Beside one of the rivers of Babylon, Iraqi archeologists are digging into the past of the Prophet Ezekiel's reputed burial site, even as clerics and government officials draw up plans for its future.

Takeda Shingen's 24 Generals

Posted January 10th, 2011 at 01:04 PM by leakbrewergator

Takeda Shingen was loyally served by a very talented retainer band. In fact, outside of the mighty Oda Nobunaga, there is perhaps not 1 daimyo in Japan's history that could match the "star-power" within Shingen's command. (This, of course, does not include Hideyoshi or Ieyasu.)

Now, Shingen had around 40 or so generals that are worthy of being mentioned as great fighters. However, during the Edo period, an artist came up with the concept of "Takeda Shingen's 24 Generals."

Mary Elizabeth Berry is absolutely one of my favorite historians. I know I’ve said that countless times on Historum before, but I just don’t know if I can stress that enough.

One word of advice for anyone reading this book: Have a...

Since I posted earlier about Takeda Shingen's 24 Generals, I thought it would only be fair to spend some time discussing the leadership of Shingen's greatest rival, Uesugi Kenshin,

The most common Edo-Period moniker associated with these men is "Uesugi Kenshin's 28 Generals." Because of this, I will list the 28 generals that I think figured the most prominent

Hojo Soun's 21 Articles

Posted January 18th, 2011 at 06:42 AM by leakbrewergator

House codes were a common occurrence in Pre-Modern Japan. Nearly every influential family throughout the land had a set of rules that were set down by their patriarch. These codes were usually meant to tell future generations how to tend to their land and govern their provinces properly. Perhaps the most recognizable of these codes are Hojo Sounís 21 Articles.

Iíll save the discussion of Sounís life (which is incredibly interesting) for a later date. For now, I want to focus on...
