The Renaissance Disaster

Posted by Bob on November 23rd, 2007 under History


In 1250, AD:

1) Every literate person knew the world was round;

3) Medical texts recommended taking fruits with Vitamin C, though of course it wasn’t specified, on board for long sea voyages. The Vikings never had scurvy;

3) Medical texts also routinely insisted that wounds be soaked in wine to avoid infection;

4) There was not, and never had been, a witch-burning hysteria. The Hammer of Witches was a RENAISSANCE document. The real Medieval Church, including the Inquisition, had viewed most witches as demented women;

5) Many castles had showers, only mechanically different from the ones we have today. Bathing was popular, but expensive and difficult for most. Saturday was bath day for the wealthy, as it had been for the “barbarians.” In one case before 1000 AD, an attack was launched on Saturday precisely because it was “bath day.” History records this and blithely goes on with the myth that barbarians did not bathe;

6) Higher math, Western math, the Calculus and the math of CHANGING relationships, was developed ENTIRELY in the Middle Ages. It was seriously retarded when the Renaissance brought in “Classical” math and tried to show how advanced math was a product of “The Ancients.” One mathematician took care of that by saying the Classical mathematicians were the real giants, and Medievals were only more advanced because “They stood on the shoulders of giants.”

Pure crap.

The examples are endless.

7) In my youth, textbooks had a poor, crippled “map of the world” that was supposed to represent the Dark Ages, pre-Columbus, world view. As a matter of fact, it was the world map of the Classical Age, discovered by the Renaissance. The world which had discovered Greenland and which was trying to find a NEW way to reach the Far East was far, far beyond that poor, crippled thing.

That map was only used by Renaissance “scholars.”

The Renaissance caused Luther and his followers to assume that only Hebrew Scriptures were true Old Testament. This was nonsense. The New Testament was written by HELLENIC Jews whose entire Bible was in GREEK.

On and on it goes.

The Renaissance was an intellectual DISASTER.

Share it now. Like it while you're at it.

    History is not linear progress. It’s certainly does seem that “pride goes before the fall” though. When we regain a right sense of ourselves it certainly will be a new birth, but it won’t “The Renaissance”

    I’m glad that history isn’t a hoeless cycle either.

    Hmmm,you are beginning to sound very Catholic. This is a common experience to intelligent men who, freed from the daily hubbub by age, turn reflective.

    The Vikings took baths twice a day in warm water. They were pirates.

    Ordinary Medieval folk jumped in the creek when they felt like it — naked and all — in the middle of their village or town.

    People back then were like you and me. If you don’t bathe every day, you feel like crap and itch all over.

    The Renaissance also wrecked the English tongue. The Romans would be aghast at the barbarisms we made by whoring with their language, barbarisms that high school students have to memorize in lists, as with any foreign language.

    BBG-

    The biggest incitement for the Renaissance was the first European revolution, which centralized the Church under the bishop of Rome.

    This led to the replacement of European thought with the vestiges of Classical thought because it had the new central authority’s (Rome’s) stamp of approval.

    In reaction, this also led to the overthrow of Rome throughout the Nordic countries.

    The Medieval Church had been a loose-knit band of Confederacies united, but not united in organization.

    Later, the Reformers of the Church were forced to react to the new Roman doctrinal heresies not just because they were outside Tradition, but because by that time they were imposed on everyone and enforced by burning thousands at the stake. During the Medieval ages, like doctrinal novelties arose, but they ebbed away because there was no central authority in Rome to impose them on everyone.

    Thus the Renaissance arose from the new ecclesiastical polity in the same way that our economic system of government arose from the Yankee revolution of 1861. And the Reformation of the Church was a predictable response in the same way that Southern secession was.

    The Christian Reformers said that the papacy, of a mere man, had usurped the head of the Church who could only be Christ; then it began subverting lawful secular governments everywhere in order to create a new worldly, fleshly global empire under its feet. The Southern secessionists said the same thing of the Yankees.

    The Reformers seceded from Rome since it had ceased to be Catholic and had become a sect. The Southerners seceded from the North because it had ceased to be American and had become criminal.

    And yet, somehow, there needs to be some kind of regathering. I have spent my whole life feeling on the outside, looking in. I tried being a Catholic, but I couldn’t. Since families are so small and isolated, I think that everyone I know is also very lonely. This does not promote freedom and clear thinking either.
