    “Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat............If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

    Excerpt From: Tzu, Sun. “The Art of War.” 

    "What then happened, from an anthropological standpoint, after the appearance of the Cro-Magnon in Europe? This question will be debated for a long time to come. But it is sufficient reason to suppose that the Alpine race is indigenous to Europe and therefore the descendants of the Cro-Magnon, who's survivors are the Basques.  Thus, the Basques's language could very well be the oldest in Europe.
    With the abatement of the cold toward the end of the Ice Age (about 10, 000), a group of these Cro-Magnon moved to the North. This stock would give rise to the Scandinavian and the Germanic branches at yet undetermined time, but surely at a time posterior to 10,000 years ago.  This group occupied the Eastern part of Europe, and then descended all the way to Scythia, at the outskirts of the Meridional cradle: the Slavs. 
    Other branches probably descended the Rhine and the Danube Rivers to Caucasia and the Black Sea;from thence would originate the secondary migration of the Celts, the Iberians, and other Indo-European tribes who did not under  any circumstances come from the heart of Asia. One therefore sees how the illusion was created.
    Around 2200 B.C., the Greeks separated themselves from the northern branch, and in north south migration, arrived in Hellas.
    The Latins, much later perhaps, occupied Italy where they found the descendants of the Alpine race (Ombrains) mixed probably with the Sicilians, the Scytheans, and the Pelasgians who must have been of a type lose to that of the pre-Latins.

    Persecution In the Third Century, Part 1

    in Christianity

    The History of Christianity #56

    Our Scripture verse today is 1 John 3:13 which reads: "Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you."

    Our quote today is from Cyprian of Carthage. He said: "The present confession of the faith before the authorities has been all the more illustrious and honorable because the suffering was greater. The struggle intensified, and the glory of those who struggled grew with it."

    Today, we are looking at "Persecution In the Third Century" (Part 1) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).

    In the last years of the second century, the church had enjoyed relative peace. The empire was involved in civil wars and in defending its borders against barbarian inroads, and therefore had paid scant attention to Christians. Trajan's old principle, that Christians were to be punished if they refused to worship the emperor and the gods, but that they ought not to be sought out, was still in force. Therefore, whatever persecution existed was local and sporadic.

    In the third century, things changed. Trajan's policy was still valid, and therefore the threat of local persecution was constant. But over and beyond that there were new policies that deeply affected the life of the church. The emperors who created and applied these policies were Septimius Severus and Decius.

    Persecution Under Septimius Severus

    Early in the third century, the reigning emperor, Septimius Severus, had managed to put an end to a series of civil wars that had weakened the empire. But even so, it was not easy to govern such a vast and unruly domain. The "barbarians" who lived beyond the borders of the Rhine and the Danube were a constant threat...
