(Vatican Radio) A relic of St Thomas Becket, the 12th century English archbishop murdered at the altar in Canterbury Cathedral, is returning home this week from Hungary, where it has been venerated as a powerful symbol of the Church’s struggle for religious freedom. The relic, a small fragment of bone, is believed to have been taken to Hungary shortly after the assassination and has been kept for the past eight centuries in Esztergom Basilica. Becket’s murder by four knights in December 1170 marked the dramatic end of a long feud with King Henry II and the start of a popular tradition of pilgrimage to his tomb. Under Henry VIII, his shrine was destroyed and his name was removed from the Church of England calendar, yet today he is being s...

On a clear day, a Viking longship at sea could be seen some 18 nautical miles away. With a favourable wind, that distance could be covered in about an hour – which was perhaps all the time that the monks at Lindisfarne had to prepare themselves against attack on one fateful day in 793. 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. Such a voyage was not thought possible. The church of Saint Cuthbert is spattered with the blood of the priests of God, stripped of all its furnishings, exposed to...

A Florence (Italie), les riches familles d’aujourd’hui sont à peu près les mêmes que celles du XVe siècle. C’est le surprenant résultat d’une étude menée par deux économistes italiens. Guglielmo Barone et Sauro Mocetti ont comparé le précieux recensement fiscal des dix mille plus riches contribuables florentins établi en 1427 avec les déclarations de revenus supérieures à 150.000 euros en 2011 de la ville. Or la liste de 1427 comprend le nom de chaque chef de famille, son métier et ses revenus. Il était donc tentant de comparer les noms des riches contribuables florentins à 600 ans d'intervalle.
