Long headed slave girls, Congo, ca. 1900-1915

:*Black and white lantern slide showing two Congo slave women. At the [[ Category Congo-Balolo Mission|Congo Balolo Mission]], Congo (present day [[Democratic Republic of the Congo]]).

:*The women sit facing one another on a wooden bench in wrap dresses. One woman wears an ornament through her ear, whilst her companion wears a thin bracelet. Scarification marks can be seen on the arm of each woman. In the Congo, marking the body through scarring in patterns then controlling the healing process was an important cultural signifier, often carried out to indicate life stages or cultural belonging, with peoples of the Congo having some of the most complex designs in Africa.

:*In women, scarification marks were added to intenisfy beauty, or to mark stages in life, such as childbirth - bearing the pain involved in the process was believed to be a path to adulthood and a sign of strength that would be needed in childbearing.

:*The heads of the women are slightly elongated, as a likely result of the practice of headbinding. The malleable skulls of babies would be wrapped tightly in cloth in order to produce an elongated head shape, mostly as a sign of cultural belonging and beauty. The Mangbetu people of the Congo practised head binding, and it is to this group that these women may belong. In the memoir of the work of her husband and herself for the Congo Balolo Mission, Lily Ruskin also speaks of head binding for babies of the Yamongo people, whom Edward Algernon Ruskin first encountered in 1895.

:*This slide comes from a collection generated by missionaries working for the Congo Balolo Mission, a mission begun in 1889 under the supervision of the East London Training Institute for Home and Foreign Missions that developed into the interdenominational evangelical mission Regions Beyond Missionary Union after 1900.

Pepin the Short"

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

"Pepin the Short[a] (German: Pippin der Kurze, French: Pépin le Bref, c. 714 – 24 September 768) was the King of the Franks from 751 until his death. He was the first of the Carolingians to become king.[b][2]

The younger son of the Frankish prince Charles Martel and his wife Rotrude, Pepin's upbringing was distinguished by the ecclesiastical education he had received from the monks of St. Denis. Succeeding his father as the Mayor of the Palace in 741, Pepin reigned over Francia jointly with his elder brother Carloman. Pepin ruled in Neustria, Burgundy, and Provence, while his older brother Carloman established himself in Austrasia, Alemannia and Thuringia. The brothers were active in suppressing revolts led by the Bavarians, Aquitanians, Saxons, and the Alemanni in the early years of their reign. In 743, they ended the Frankish interregnum by choosing Childeric III, who was to be the last Merovingian monarch, as figurehead king of the Franks.

Being well disposed towards the church and Papacy on account of their ecclesiastical upbringing, Pepin and Carloman continued their father's work in supporting Saint Boniface in reforming the Frankish church, and evangelising the Saxons. After Carloman, who was an intensely pious man, retired to religious life in 747, Pepin became the sole ruler of the Franks. He suppressed a revolt led by his half-brother Grifo, and succeeded in becoming the undisputed master of all Francia. Giving up pretense, Pepin then forced Childeric into a monastery and had himself proclaimed king of the Franks with support of Pope Zachary in 751. The decision was not supported by all members of the Carolingian family and Pepin had to put down a revolt led by Carloman's son, Drogo, and again by Grifo.

As King, Pepin embarked on an ambitious program to expand his power. He reformed the legislation of the Franks and continued the ecclesiastical reforms of Boniface. Pepin also intervened in favour of the Papacy of Stephen II against the Lombards in Italy. He was able to secure several cities, which he then gave to the Pope as part of the Donation of Pepin. This formed the legal basis for the Papal States in the Middle Ages. The Byzantines, keen to make good relations with the growing power of the Frankish empire, gave Pepin the title of Patricius. In wars of expansion, Pepin conquered Septimania from the Islamic Umayyads, and subjugated the southern realms by repeatedly defeating Waiofar and his Gascon troops, after which the Gascon and Aquitanian lords saw no option but to pledge loyalty to the Franks. Pepin was, however, troubled by the relentless revolts of the Saxons and the Bavarians. He campaigned tirelessly in Germany, but the final subjugation of these tribes was left to his successors.

Pepin died in 768 and was succeeded by his sons Charlemagne and Carloman. Although unquestionably one of the most powerful and successful rulers of his time, Pepin's reign is largely overshadowed by that of his more famous son.

 

Assumption of Power[edit]

Pepin's father Charles Martel died in 741. He divided the rule of the Frankish kingdom between Pepin and his elder brother, Carloman, his surviving sons by his first wife: Carloman became Mayor of the Palace of Austrasia, Pepin became Mayor of the Palace of Neustria. Grifo, Charles's son by his second wife, Swanahild (also known as Swanhilde), demanded a share in the inheritance, but he was besieged in Laon, forced to surrender and imprisoned in a monastery by his two half-brothers.

In the Frankish realm the unity of the kingdom was essentially connected with the person of the king. So Carloman, to secure this unity, raised the Merovingian Childeric to the throne (743). Then in 747 Carloman either resolved to or was pressured into entering a monastery. This left Francia in the hands of Pepin as sole mayor of the palace and dux et princeps Francorum.

At the time of Carloman's retirement, Grifo escaped his imprisonment and fled to Duke Odilo of Bavaria, who was married to Hiltrude, Pepin's sister. Pepin put down the renewed revolt led by his half-brother and succeeded in completely restoring the boundaries of the kingdom.

Under the reorganization of Francia by Charles Martel, the dux et princeps Francorum was the commander of the armies of the kingdom, in addition to his administrative duties as mayor of the palace.[3]

 

Coronation in 751 of Pepin the Short by Boniface, Archbishop of Mainz

First Carolingian King [edit]

As mayor of the palace, Pepin was formally subject to the decisions of Childeric III who had only the title of King but no power. Since Pepin had control over the magnates and actually had the power of a king, he now addressed to Pope Zachary a suggestive question:

In regard to the kings of the Franks who no longer possess the royal power: is this state of things proper?

Hard pressed by the Lombards, Pope Zachary welcomed this move by the Franks to end an intolerable condition and lay the constitutional foundations for the exercise of the royal power. The Pope replied that such a state of things is not proper. In these circumstances, the de facto power was considered more important than the de jure authority.

After this decision the throne was declared vacant. Childeric III was deposed and confined to a monastery. He was the last of the Merovingians.

Pepin was then elected King of the Franks by an assembly of Frankish nobles, with a large portion of his army on hand. The earliest account of his election and anointing is the Clausula de Pippino written around 767. Meanwhile, Grifo continued his rebellion, but was eventually killed in the battle of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne in 753.

Pepin was assisted by his friend Vergilius of Salzburg, an Irish monk who probably used a copy of the "Collectio canonum Hibernensis" (an Irish collection of canon law) to advise him to receive royal unction to assist his recognition as king.[4] Anointed a first time in 751 in Soissons, Pepin added to his power after Pope Stephen II traveled all the way to Paris to anoint him a second time in a lavish ceremony at the Basilica of St Denis in 754, bestowing upon him the additional title of patricius Romanorum (Patrician of the Romans) and is the first recorded crowning of a civil ruler by a Pope. As life expectancies were short in those days, and Pepin wanted family continuity, the Pope also anointed Pepin's sons, Charles (eventually known as Charlemagne), who was 12, and Carloman, who was 3.

Expansion of the Frankish Realm[edit]

Pepin's expedition to Septimania and Aquitaine (760)

Pepin's first major act as king was to go to war against the Lombard king Aistulf, who had expanded into the ducatus Romanus. After a meeting with Pope Stephen II at Ponthion, Pepin forced the Lombard king to return property seized from the Church.[5] He confirmed the Papacy in possession of Ravenna and the Pentapolis, the so-called Donation of Pepin, whereby the Papal States were established and the temporal reign of the Papacy officially began.[5] At about 752, he turned his attention to Septimania. The new king headed south in a military expedition down the Rhone valley and received the submission of eastern Septimania (i.e. Nîmes, Maguelone, Beziers and Agde) after securing count Ansemund's allegiance. The Frankish king went on to invest Narbonne, the main Umayyad stronghold in Septimania, but could not capture it from the Iberian Muslims until seven years later in 759,[6] when they were driven out to Hispania.

Aquitaine still remained under Waiofar's Gascon-Aquitanian rule, however, and beyond Frankish reach. Duke Waiofar appears to have confiscated Church lands, maybe distributing them among his troops. In 760, after conquering the Roussillon from the Muslims and denouncing duke Waiofar's actions, Pepin moved his troops over to Toulouse and Albi, ravaged with fire and sword most of Aquitaine, and, in retaliation, counts loyal to Waiofar ravaged Burgundy.[7] Pepin, in turn, besieged the Aquitanian-held towns and strongholds of Bourbon, Clermont, Chantelle, Bourges and Thouars, defended by Duke Waiofar's Gascon troops, who were overcome, captured and deported into northern France with their children and wives.[8]

In 763, Pepin advanced further into the heart of Waiofar’s domains and captured major strongholds (Poitiers, Limoges, Angoulême, etc.), after which Waiofar counterattacked and war became bitter. Pepin opted to spread terror, burning villas, destroying vineyards and depopulating monasteries. By 765, the brutal tactics seemed to pay off for the Franks, who destroyed resistance in central Aquitaine and devastated the whole region. The city of Toulouse was conquered by Pepin in 767 as was Waiofar's capital of Bordeaux.[9]

As a result, Aquitanian nobles and Gascons from beyond the Garonne too saw no option but to accept a pro-Frankish peace treaty (Fronsac, c. 768). Waiofar escaped but was assassinated by his own frustrated followers in 768.

Legacy[edit]

 

Allegoric depiction of Pepin

Pepin died during a campaign, in 768 at the age of 54. He was interred in the Basilica of Saint Denis in modern-day Metropolitan Paris. His wife Bertrada was also interred there in 783. Charlemagne rebuilt the Basilica in honor of his parents and placed markers at the entrance.

The Frankish realm was divided according to the Salic law between his two sons: Charlemagne and Carloman I.

Historical opinion often seems to regard him as the lesser son and lesser father of two greater men, though a great man in his own right. He continued to build up the heavy cavalry which his father had begun. He maintained the standing army that his father had found necessary to protect the realm and form the core of its full army in wartime. He not only contained the Iberian Muslims as his father had, but drove them out of what is now France and, as important, he managed to subdue the Aquitanians and the Gascons after three generations of on-off clashes, so opening the gate to central and southern Gaul and Muslim Iberia. He continued his father's expansion of the Frankish church (missionary work in Germany and Scandinavia) and the institutional infrastructure (feudalism) that would prove the backbone of medieval Europe.

His rule, while not as great as either his father's or son's, was historically important and of great benefit to the Franks as a people. Pepin's assumption of the crown, and the title of Patrician of Rome, were harbingers of his son's imperial coronation which is usually seen as the founding of the Kingdom of France. He made the Carolingians de jure what his father had made them de facto — the ruling dynasty of the Franks and the foremost power of Europe. Known as a great conqueror, he was undefeated during his lifetime.

Family[edit]

Pepin married Leutberga from the Danube region. They had five children. She was repudiated some time after the birth of Charlemagne and her children were sent to convents.

In 741, Pepin married Bertrada, daughter of Caribert of Laon. They are known to have had eight children, at least three of whom survived to adulthood:

Charles (2 April 742 – 28 January 814), (Charlemagne)

Carloman (751 – 4 December 771)

Gisela (757–810)

Pepin, died in infancy.

Chrothais, died young, buried in Metz.

Adelais, died young, buried in Metz.

After the prize giving, Diego Delso (first prize and active Wikimedia member) made an interesting presentation about Wikimedia Commons.

 

I took several photos of the act, but I don't think I have enough skill bouncing flash, so I got some unflattering shadows in most. This is one of the better ones (in my opinion)

This is the only remaining fresco painted by Andrei Rublev, the great iconographer of the 15th century. It is an ensemble depicting the last judgment under the central arch of the west gallery in the cathedral of Vladimir. Few people are able to photograph it because of the poor lighting.

Man with scarification patterns, Congo, ca. 1900-1915

*Black and white lantern slide showing a man with scarification designs on his chest, face and lips, in Belgian colonial [[ Category Congo Free State|Congo Free State]] or post-1908 [[ Category Belgian Congo|Belgian Congo]] (present day [[Democratic Republic of the Congo]]).

*Scarification was a common form of body modification in Africa that conveyed meaning on the body through the inflication and controlled healing of wounds to form particular marks. For men, this could often be a test of endurance, carry symbolic meaning or be a sign of cultural belonging.

*Christian missionaries disapproved of the practice, since it was believed to distort a natural body, made in God's image. During the 1800s and 1900, images of scarification were distributed in Europe, and came to be seen as a sign of the exotic.

 

:*This slide comes from a collection generated by missionaries working for the [[ Category Congo-Balolo Mission|Congo-Balolo Mission]], a mission begun in 1889 under the supervision of the East London Training Institute for Home and Foreign Missions that developed into the interdenominational evangelical mission Regions Beyond Missionary Union after 1900.

I was just checking what the 20 X optical zoom on my new Canon SX10 IS camera could do, so I pointed it at the moon. Comes out quite nice. Who needs a telescope when you have a 20 X zoom?

The origins of the church dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel and documentary evidence of so-called (Arkhangel'skoe) village goes back to the 17th century when these groungs were owned by Boltin boyars. The church as it's shown on a photo was finalized in 1822 by well-known Russian architect Joseph Bove who was the second husband of princess A.S. Trubetskoy, whose noble family owned this land since year 1710. Later in 1937 the church was closed by atheist soviet authorities and turned into warehouse and country club, then severly damaged during WW II. One of the most sad things in history of the church is that The Nazis killed lots of people from the bell-tower of the church as it's a prevailing height of this area. The church was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church in 1995 and since then is permanently under reconstruction process.

More information about the village and country estate of the Trubetskoy family can be found here -in Russian

More information about Joseph Bove : WIKI

 

The church was built in the first half of the 17th century to replase wooded one destroyed by fire. This church is one of the few that were not closed during the Soviet period, and have retained its original interiors.

The icon ''Salvation of Sinners'' is kept here, the one that witness the Holy Matrimony of Sergei Efron and Marina Tsvetayeva.

:*Black and white lantern slide showing three women with elaborate, braided hair styles, in colonial [[ Category Belgian Congo|Belgian Congo]] (present day [[Democratic Republic of the Congo]]).

:*Hair styling was used among Luba women to encode memory about a person's history, status and occupation. One woman has a chin length braided style with a raised comb of hair across the top of her head. The woman in the centre of the image has a shorter braided style to ear length, and the youngest of the group has two long, matted braids.

:*The older women in the group also bear geometric scarification marks (notably on their chins). Scarification was a process in which small scars were inflicted and their healing controlled in order to create patterns. The practice was common in Africa to denote status, history, ethnic group and beauty. For women, the ability to bear the pain of scarification was seen as a sign of the ability to endure the dangers of childbirth. The patterns were also seen as a mark of socialisation that marked humankind above the animal kingdom. Each women wears a short necklace around her neck.

 

:*This slide comes from a collection generated by missionaries working for the [[ Category Congo-Balolo Mission|Congo-Balolo Mission]] , a mission begun in 1889 under the supervision of the East London Training Institute for Home and Foreign Missions that developed into the interdenominational evangelical mission Regions Beyond Missionary Union after 1900.

''Woman Carrying a Load on Her Head, Jamaica, ca.1875-ca.1940

"Negro woman with head load" Photograph of a woman carrying a load on her head. She is bare foot and has a basket containing a large load balanced on her head.; This belongs to a series of Church of Scotland Foreign Missions Committee lantern slides relating to Jamaica. In 1800 the Scottish Missionary Society sent three missionaries to Jamaica. Two died of yellow fever within weeks of arrival but the third became a pioneer missionary. In 1824 a second venture travelled to Jamaica by invitation of local planters to instruct their slaves. Scottish missionaries worked at Montego Bay in the 19th century and in 1836 the first presbytery of the Jamaican Church was constituted here.
