(Citiţi tot mesajul!) JSRI nr. 2 When historians like Arnold J. Toynbee survey the total history of humankind they find that there have been a number of civilizations which have come into existence, flourished, and then declined (Toynbee discerns 26 civilizations in human history).

But doubtless the Greco-Roman accomplishments were in many regards matched, and in some surpassed, by the Chinese and Islamic Civilizations. ... (Citiţi tot mesajul!)

Paul Damascus I was always attracted by this queer episode in Paul’s life. Queer not in itself but in the manner Paul succinctly speaks about it.
