Diffusion : lundi 23 mai 2016 Audio La ville de Florence, en Italie. Maria Swärd/FlickrVision/Getty Images A Florence, en Italie, la richesse se transmet de père en fils depuis la renaissance. C'est la conclusion étonnante d'une étude menée par deux chercheurs italiens. Entre 1427 et 2011, les familles florentines installées au sommet de l’échelle sociale sont restées les mêmes. Avec les mêmes métiers, dans le secteur de la chaussure, de la soie, et du droit. Deux économistes de la banque centrale italienne ont fait cette découverte singulière en comparant les registres fiscaux. En 1427, Florence est au bord de la faillite, la ville procède à un recensement fiscal pour identifier les 10 000 contribuables à même de la sauver de la débâcle...

Ce devait être un grand moment. L’Eglise polonaise avait ouvert un jubilé et le préparait depuis plusieurs années. Aussitôt élu, le parti Droit et Justice avait saisi l’occasion pour en faire la source de la « nouvelle » Pologne. Le 14-16 avril 2016, à Poznań et Gniezno, on célébrait le 1050e anniversaire du baptême catholique de Mieszko 1er, le fondateur de la première dynastie polonaise des Piast. Si les historiens n’ont toujours pas établi avec certitude la date et le lieu de ce baptême, il est admis qu’il se déroula en 966 près de Gniezno, qu’il fut l’aboutissement plus ou moins contraint, d’un rapprochement avec le roi de Bohême voisin, dont Mieszko épousa la fille. Il signifia en fait la naissance d’un Etat centralisé et le début d...

While historians have still not established with certainty the date and the place of this baptism, it is accepted that it took place in 966 near Gniezno, he was more or less forced culmination, of a reconciliation with the King of neighbouring Bohemia, whose daughter married Mieszko. It actually meant the emergence of a centralized State and the beginning of...

Das Hauptgebäude auf dem Steenkamp Hof am Reuenberg 47a stammt aus dem Jahre 1786. So ist es auf dem schwarzen Balken über dem Eingang des Fachwerkhauses, das unter Denkmalschutz steht, zu lesen. Der Hof an sich fand hingegen schon 1668 Erwähnung. Doch auch das reicht nicht ganz, um als mittelalterliches Gebäude zu gelten. Für die Freunde des Mittelalters um Thorsten Wolf spielt das nicht die entscheidende Rolle. Für sie zählt das Ambiente. Zu Recht.

This was the raid that signalled the start of the violence associated with the onset of the Viking age.    “We and our fathers have now lived in this fair land for nearly 350 years, and never before has such an atrocity been seen in Britain as we have now suffered at the hands of a pagan people.
