Keanekaragaman bahasa semakin terancam karena makin banyak bahasa yang hilang. Setiap dua minggu sebuah bahasa lenyap. Hilangnya sebuah bahasa sekaligus mengambil seluruh warisan budaya dan intelektual yang terkandung di dalamnya.⠀
⠀
UNESCO sebagai badan PBB bidang kebudayaan dan pendidikan mengajak negara-negara di seluruh dunia untuk ikut merayakan hari ini sebagai pengingat bahwa keragaman bahasa dan multilingualisme adalah aspek penting untuk pembangunan berkelanjutan.⠀
Peringatan ini juga bertujuan untuk melestarikan keanekaragaman bahasa dan mempromosikan pendidikan multibahasa berbasis bahasa ibu.⠀
⠀
Sementara itu, para peneliti menemukan bahwa multilingualisme bagus untuk keberlangsungan pembangunan dan ekonomi, negara-negara yang secara aktif memelihara berbagai bahasa menuai berbagai hal positif, mulai dari ekspor yang lebih berhasil hingga angkatan kerja yang lebih inovatif.⁣⁣⁠⠀

The Kingston brooch, the finest known, Anglo-Saxon 600 - 625 AD. Excavated in Kent by the Rev. Bryan Faussett in 1771. Actually his son did the digging whilst he sat in his carriage suffering from gout. #liverpoolworldmuseum #liverpool #anglosaxon #jewelry #enamel

New blog post. Yggdrasil's secrets: runes Link in bio
A poetic post about my take on the runes, as a form of symbolism and meaning. Further reclaiming the futhark from the fascists.

A week ago we shared this publication about the origin of the name "England" which a German read it and liked it a lot so she asked us to publish it in English and German language, the latter with her help for the translation (which we will publish within a few days), so meanwhile we publish the English version. We hope you enjoy it
.
Did you know that the name England is after the Anglo tribes? They were one of the Germanic peoples that inhabited Britain from the 5th century AD but ... Why did the name ENGLAND prevail in a country where the Anglos also lived with the Saxons? Who was responsible?
.
When we think of Vikings we immediately associate them with Sweden, Norway and Denmark but the Normans also shaped England and Europe. They arrived in Kiev to form current Russia, and also ventured to Sicily through the Mediterranean Sea, and even traded in Turkey
.
In England there were also the ancient Romans, and before them the Celts and the people of the Bell Beaker culture. At some point the Caledonians, Picts and Scotts were added, the latter gave the name to Scotland
.
Do you know the difference between England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom? Do not? Then we invite you to learn these fascinating sheets with very interesting information
.
Follow us, like us and share this post !!! Remember what Morgan Freeman told Scarlett Johansson in the Lucy movie about the knowledge acquired: "Share it!"

BURN YOUR BOATS!
WE CONQUER OR WE DIE! 
Commit, conquer, succeed. Sometimes, when you land on new ground you must burn your boats so that there will be just one outcome, TO KEEP MOVING FORWARD AND FIGHT!

CONQUER OR DEATH!

There has been many tales of this happening throughout history, myth? A story told to fill the troops with passion to fight on? Or maybe some truth in certain tales. Who truly knows.

But you can still apply this to your life, sometimes you just have to go into a task with 100% effort, no quit and give your everything to get the task complete..... Like there is no going BACK! You have the potential for true greatness in you, you just have to be willing to work to achieve things maybe you yourself thought impossible!

[2/2] To celebrate our 1000th post, here are 10 fantastic artworks from around the year 1000! Make sure you check out both posts and comment with your favourite!
•
6. The period from the end of the eighth century to the middle of the eleventh is, in Scandinavian history, known as the Viking Age. During this time, raiders and settlers from Scandinavia crossed the North Sea to seize plunder, land, and slaves from the British Isles. The dragon head motif commonly associated with the prows of Viking ships also appears on this copper pin.
•
7. This mosaic of the Virgin Mary with her hands raised in an ‘orans’ gesture of prayer can be found in the eastern half-dome of St Sophia Cathedral in Kiev. It stands 6 metres high and is made up of over 2 million individual tiles or tesserae.
•
8. This miniature from the Gospel Book of Otto III shows the Holy Roman Emperor enthroned and flanked by representatives of the tonsured clergy and the armed aristocrats of the laity – the twin pillars of royal-imperial authority throughout the Middle Ages. It was made in Reichenau Abbey c. 1000 and is today in Munich’s Bavarian State Library (Clm. 4453, f. 24).
•
9.  The Mosque of Cristo de la Luz in Toledo, Spain, was built in the year 999 AD with the funds of a wealthy Muslim living in the city called Ahmad ibn Hadidi. After Toledo’s conquest by Alfonso VI of Castile in 1085, the mosque was given to the Knights of the Order of St John and was converted into a church. •
10. This portrait of St Mark once prefaced the Lenten readings in a gospel book made in Constantinople early in the eleventh century. This leaf is now in the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore (MS W.530.A) and the rest of the book is in the National Library of Greece in Athens (MS 2552). •⁠

[1/2] To celebrate our 1000th post, here are 10 fantastic artworks from around the year 1000! Make sure you check out both posts and comment with your favourite!⁠
•⁠
1. This golden altar frontal was made in the early eleventh century for the high altar of Basel Cathedral in Switzerland. Today it is in the Musée de Cluny in Paris. This detail shows Christ with a cruciform halo flanked by angels.⁠
•⁠
2. The Lothair Cross was made in Germany – probably Cologne – around the year 1000 for the Imperial Treasury in Aachen, where it remains to this day. Its golden body is studded with precious gems and antique cameos, a powerful statement of imperial heritage on behalf of the Ottonian dynasty for whom it was made. ⁠
•⁠
3. This magnificent initial B from the beginning of the ‘Eadui Psalter’ was painted in Canterbury’s Christ Church early in the eleventh century (British Library MS Arundel 155, f. 12). This manuscript is one of the finest psalters to survive from pre-Conquest England and is a masterpiece of Anglo-Saxon art. ⁠
•⁠
4. Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta, Georgia, was founded in the fourth century but was rebuilt in the early 1000s at the behest of Melchizedek I, the Catholicos-Patriarch of Georgia. The architect is named in an inscription on the east facade which reads ‘This holy church was built by the hand of Thy wretched servant, Arsukidze. May your soul rest in peace, O Master.’⁠
•⁠
5. This world map was made in England – possibly Canterbury – in the first half of the eleventh century. Like most medieval maps, it is ‘oriented’ with east at the top. It is noted for containing the first relatively realistic outline of the British Isles (bottom left corner) and is now in the British Library (Cotton MS Tiberius B.V., f. 56v).⁠

This manuscript is one of the finest psalters to survive from pre-Conquest England and is a masterpiece of Anglo-Saxon art. ⁠ •⁠ 4. Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta, Georgia, was founded in the fourth century but was rebuilt in the early 1000s at the behest of Melchizedek I, the Catholicos-Patriarch of Georgia. The architect is named in an inscription on the east facade which reads ‘This holy church was built by the hand of Thy wretched servant, Arsukidze. May your soul rest in peace, O Master.’⁠ •⁠ 5. This world map was made in England – possibly Canterbury – in the first half of the eleventh century. Like most medieval maps, it is ‘oriented’ with east at the top. It is noted for containing the first relatively realistic outline of the British Isles (bottom left corner) and is now in the British Library (Cotton MS Tiberius B.V., f. 56v).⁠ •⁠ •⁠ •⁠ #art #medievalart #medieval #middleages #moyenage #mittelalter #medioevo #edadmedia #history #arthistory #historyofart #gold #altar #cross #crucifix #manuscript #medievalmanuscript #manuscriptillumination #cathedral #church #architecture #anglosaxon #ottonian #discoverart #historydaily #dailyart #1000thpost #beauty #world #worldhistory - 17 hours ago
