Re: Itinerarium Alexandri

Marcus Agreed Were getting off subject...But realistically its all very much inter connected..As Andrew Chugg said, And to be very honest were it not for him I would have absolutely no Idea of the St Marks body and the connections with Alexander. I was going along with the Idea that if Alexander wer...

Re: Itinerarium Alexandri

Absolutely Right Marcus Its wrong to say testing the remains is win win Situation for the Roamn Catholoics..Were the remains to be dated Alexander it doesn not quite fit into Roman Catholic Christianity..That a claimed St Mark is actually the Mortal remains of what the Christian Church would call a ...

Re: Itinerarium Alexandri

Spitamense I never ever knew anything at all about the Remains and or the histories of St Mark until Andrew Chuggs books raised the opinions...A lot of Scholars have down and out dismissed it.

Re: Itinerarium Alexandri

Absolutely Marcus I thoroughly understand your leanings towards...Arian etc..And as wed accept a good reference of starting. But I take the Bible and other religious works of fiction... Its fare to say the Bible had many original gospels etc and although its accepted Constantine was the first Roman ...

Re: Itinerarium Alexandri

Spitamense plenty things could be proved. The written accounts of historical injuries..In particullar the damage surely incured when the arrow pierced his lung. But the real revelation would be to prove to me he had been poisoned...All the noble theories going round that it was below them and they w...

Re: Itinerarium Alexandri

Marcus there is no problem reading those things written centuries later...Mostly the events can be crossed referenced and outlined through histories Archeology and the likes. But what we cant do is draw conclusions as to who said what and how minds were thinking,,We cant say because Arian says this ...

Re: Regime Change

Semaris Thanks for your very nice reply and opinion...I feel the romantic in me would love to believe a lot of the Nicer stories about Alexander and the way the heroic stories are abound. However I like to think practical and understand,,And basically admit Alexander was foremost a warrior and battl...

Regime Change

I thought I would have a go with a new topic in view of Alexander...Darius and the modern things going on with regime changes.
