Le TOP X MMXV (December 30, 2015)


Restorers of an 18th-century statue of Jesus Christ in Spain have found a handwritten note hidden up his bum

The message, written carefully in calligraphy and dating back to 1777, had been stuffed up the Messiah’s backside by a priest, preserving it like a time capsule.


It contains key information about the period and details on popular pastimes, the economic situation, political and religious matters, famous people and other topics.


The document is signed by Joaquin Minguez, priest of the cathedral of Burgo de Osma at the time, and was recently unearthed by workers of the restoration company Da Vinci Restauro.


Today, the wooden statue is kept at the church of Santa Agueda in the village of Sotillo de la Ribera in the northern Spanish province of Burgos.


The document, carefully handwritten on both sides of two pages, was found when restorers removed a piece of fabric used to cover Christ’s behind, which exposed a small gap.


Local historian Efren Arroyo was overwhelmed by the discovery: “It is amazing because it really is unique to find hidden handwritten documents inside such statues.”


As well as naming the statue’s sculptor and including data on local information ranging from agricultural matters to community affairs, the document highlighted common diseases, popular children’s games and even the names of popular bullfighters of the time.


According to experts, all these references indicate Joaquin Minguez’s intention was to make one of the earliest time capsules ever left behind for future generations to discover.

Les expertises sur le site, considéré comme la tombe de Jésus à Jérusalem, ont daté du IVe siècle des matériaux retrouvés sur place, confortant la tradition, a indiqué mardi une scientifique impliquée dans les travaux de restauration de ce monument


Si elles ne fournissent pas de preuve que le Christ a bien été enterré en cet endroit, ces analyses sont cohérentes avec la croyance selon laquelle les Romains y avaient érigé un monument environ 300 ans après la mort de Jésus Christ.


C’est la première fois en effet que de telles analyses sont conduites sur ce site, où a plus tard été édifiée l’église du Saint-Sépulcre, dans la vieille ville de Jérusalem.


Elles font suite à l’ouverture, en octobre 2016, de la tombe présumée du Christ pour la première fois depuis au moins deux siècles. La plaque de marbre recouvrant la tombe, qui se trouve à l’intérieur d’un édicule lui-même situé dans l’église du Saint-Sépulcre, avait alors été déplacée durant trois jours dans le cadre de travaux de restauration de cet édicule.


Jointe au téléphone par l’AFP, la scientifique coordonnant les travaux de restauration, Antonia Moropoulou, a indiqué que le mortier scellant la plaque de marbre à la tombe datait du IVe siècle de l’ère chrétienne. Ces conclusions sont en accord avec des écrits historiques selon lesquels les Romains avaient construit sur le site un monument autour de 326, sous le règne de Constantin, qui favorisa l’essor du christianisme dans l’empire.


«C’est une découverte très importante qui confirme, comme cela est historiquement prouvé, que c’est Constantin le Grand qui a fait recouvrir de marbre la roche de la tombe du Christ», a expliqué Mme Moropoulou, spécialiste de la conservation à l’Université nationale technique d’Athènes.


La datation du mortier reflète une continuité historique sur le site, à travers l’ère byzantine, les Croisades, la Renaissance et au-delà, a-t-elle expliqué.


Selon la tradition chrétienne, le corps de Jésus a été posé sur un lit funéraire taillé dans le roc à la suite de sa crucifixion par les Romains en l’an 30 ou 33.


Au IVe siècle, Constantin avait ordonné que soit construit sur les lieux un vaste complexe chrétien, à une époque où l’Empire romain commençait à se convertir au christianisme.


Depuis, plusieurs constructions se sont succédé sur le site présumé du tombeau de Jésus. L’édicule actuel, qui attire de nombreux pèlerins, a été bâti en 1809-1810 dans le style baroque ottoman après un incendie qui avait endommagé la basilique. Sa récente restauration a pris neuf mois et s’est achevée en mars.

A Catholic school is forced to cover up a brand new statue after the ‘unfortunate’ design shows a kneeling boy and a saint holding a loaf of bread.



  • Adelaide Catholic school has covered up a statue after its image went viral
  • It depicts a saint handing a loaf of bread from his cloak to a kneeling young boy
  • Instagram went wild, with many mocking Blackfriars Priory School’s statue


ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA – A Catholic boys school has been forced to cover up a brand new statue after a rather unfortunate design created a storm on social media.


Blackfriars Priory School in Adelaide last week unveiled a statue of St Dominic handing a young boy a loaf of bread.


However the design featuring a boy kneeling at the foot of the 12th century Spanish-born saint has caused embarrassment to the inner-city school, which teaches boys from kindergarten to year 12.


A black cloth now covers the statue of the saint, who was recognised for performing the miracle of multiplying bread.


The school was forced to cover the statue with a black cloth after students took inappropriate photos on Friday, the Adelaide Advertiser reports.


This week, it was completed cordoned off. Images of the statue were shared on Instagram page S***Adelaide, attracting 1315 likes and more than 359 comments by Wednesday morning.


‘Like who the hell designed, approved and erected it and no one thought about it?’,’ one critic said

Another wondering about the vetting process. ‘Was there seriously no one that looked at this before it was installed?,‘ she asked. One woman suggested it was an innocent statue. ‘He’s just giving the boy some bread,’ she said. But one man pointed out the unfortunate sex abuse connotations involving Catholic priests and young boys. ‘Hahahaha pedo priest,’ he said.

"The production of nervous force is directly connected with the diet of an individual, and its refining depends on the very purity of this diet, allied to appropriate breathing exercises.

The diet most calculated to act effectively on the nervous force is that which contains the least quantity of animal matter; therefore the Pythagorean diet, in this connection, is the most suitable.

...

The main object was to avoid introducing into the organism what Descartes called 'animal spirits'. Thus, all animals that had to serve for the nourishment of the priests were slaughtered according to special rites, they were not murdered, as is the case nowadays".
