Internet sources are not always reliable (although reference links on Wikipedia can be helpful), and any information gleaned from them should be carefully cross-checked. Examples like Sir Lancelot and Edward the Black Prince were raised to show knights how to behave in battle and in peace. When the body of a young girl is washed up almost at the convent's gates after a flood Mother Aquinas feels the need to know more.

A true portative is small, and light enough to be played on one's lap, or to hang from a strap around the player's neck. Vlad Dracula was a merciless ruler who impaled and tortured between 40,000 and 100,000 of his enemies, both Turks and fellow countrymen who posed a threat to his power. So let's focus on small organs from around 1300 - not big church organs, but the kind that can be moved around and played without a committee. (Some of the earliest larger organs required as many as four men to pump the bellows and two more to work the sliders.) At this point (turn of the 14th century), we encounter two basic types of small organs: portative organs and positive organs.

Season one is about Julius Caesar, while season two covers the rise of Octavian and his conflict with Marc Antony. The word is the source for our modern English words piety and piousness (reverence toward the divine), but the Latin term is far more all-embracing--indicating not only devotion to the gods, but also devotion to one's gens (family) and patria (homeland or country). Drowned Towns - Mysteries and other books concerned with the flooding of towns,cities and other areas.

Was Herod the Great really innocent of this crime, or did this criminal act actually happen? D. gave rise to impressive growth and discoveries in many scientific fields, especially medicine. But human history, since its objects and its investigators are one and the same, has in principle a methodological advantage. All of these are restricted to men, of course. The mutual influence of those ideals and new aristocratic ideals of chivalry is evident in the selection from the Ancrene Riwle (Rule for Anchoresses, NAEL 8, [1.157–159]) and The Book of the Order of Chivalry.

Merlin is gone and Arthur must decide how best to proceed if he wishes to see Britain stand strong. Sadly, she was convicted and ordered executed by firing squad on October 15, 1917. Multi-generations of three different families are featured at different times in the series. The portrayal of the friendship between Richard’s sister, Joanna and his neglected queen consort, Berengeria, is particularly compelling. I also did this with The Girl with the Pearl Earring, and recently with The Passion of Artemisia.

The Ship of Fools is home to the madmen, the cast-offs of society, and the boy is alone with them now, abandoned by everyone. A medieval fantasy novel will likely contain some elements of magic. He only returns at hearing the news of his brother's death, making him the new Earl of Stafford. As for the historical element, I found it captivating with incredible details, but I didn’t feel like it took over the plot, which sometimes happens with historicals.
