His father, Vincenzo Galilei, belonged to a noble family and had gained some distinction as a musician and a mathematician.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Disney) Unknown A gem that has several very visible flaws; yet, with these flaws, The Hunchback of Notre Dame shines as the best from the Disney factory yet. For, at first, the company name and movie title didn't quite appear to sit well together. You don't marry the king of novel Gothic gloom (Mr. Victor Hugo) with one of the world's most beloved (if not biggest) animation companies and expect the usual world population to be at the reception; but expect even Mr.

The Hindenburg Unknown The Inferno The arrival of the Hindenburg, thirteen hours behind schedule, at Lakehurst, New Jersey, on the evening of May 6, 1937, promised to be routine. The ship had an unblemished safety record on eighteen previous Atlantic crossings. In fact, no passenger had ever lost his life on any commercial airship. Still, because this was the beginning of the most ambitious season yet for airship voyages, reporters, photographers and news reel cameramen had their eyes and lenses

The Truth About Orthodox Christianity
The Truth about Orthodox Christianity Anonymous As described in The Grand Inquisitor by Dostoevsky The writings of Fyodor Dostoevsky and Helen Ellerbe show substantial evidence that the orthodox Christians did in fact steal from humanity the divine freedom it was promised by Jesus Christ. This thesis is supported in Dostoevsky's The Grand Inquisitor from his book The Brothers Karamazov. The dark side of Christian history by Helen Ellerbe also supports this theory. The Inquisition itself shows
history of art
history of art
It can be argued that the vanguard of development has always been reflected in the arts of a culture. It is the poets, the dreamers and artists who are the architects of the future; the ones who build the world they want to live in, the ones who dream out loud1. Music is an elaborate art form, tempered by the emotions of those who create it and as such the dreams, creations and inventions are partly the products ? or at least artifacts ? of the world around them. As such, the social, economic

Analysis of different versions of Hamlet
Comparison of Hamlet?s ?To be or not to be? Franco Zeffirelli?s version of Hamlet portrays Hamlet as determined, mournful, and angry man that is unsure of his own fate. The scene opens as Hamlet walks down into the catacombs to be close to where his father is laid to rest. As Hamlet enters the doorway of the catacombs, it is dark and the only light that can be seen is radiating behind the silhouette of Hamlet as he walks down the stairs. This scene could foreshadow that Hamlet is the hero of the

Art through the ages
Art through the ages
From stick figures in the sand and the earliest animals painted and carved in stone, people worldwide have reacted to the world by making images. The fundamental goal of art, especially in the past, was to convey meaning and express important ideas, revealing what was significant to every society, by arresting images. In recognizing the subject matter of any painting, you have to look at the artist's intentions, which are regularly connected to social conditions, national or global issues and t

Day 1: We arrived at Omar Torrijos airport via American Airlines early in the afternoon. We purchased our required tourist cards (3 balboas, as US dollars are called in Panama) at the airport, then caught a taxi for the 18 mile ride to our downtown hotel. The ride in the battered, un-airconditioned car was rather expensive (30 balboas), but the driver spoke English and was very friendly. We arrived at the hotel and checked in. While my dad was checking in I bought a guidebook in the hotel lobby

The Effects of The Black Death on the Economic and Social Life of Europe Adrian from Gonzaga HS!! The Black Death is the name later given to the epidemic of plague that ravaged Europe between 1347 and 1351. The disaster affected all aspects of life.

Psychological morbidity affected the arts; in religi

The Meaning of Life -Opinion Anocer My beliefs on the meaning of life in religion and interpretation of such things. In approaching the question of 'the meaning of life' we have to examine the nature of meaning itself. Meaning, is by definition the point, or the intended goal. Consider the point of humans and the universe as seen from monotheistic religion. If life and the universe is some sort of toy or form of entertainment for some greater being, his point, his own entertainment, would then b

But the countries comprising the vast expanses of the New Independent States, Russia and the Balkan had no real acquaintance with it. To them its zealous introduction is nothing but another ideological experiment and not a very rewarding one at that. It is often said that there is no precedent t
