Kremlin makeover exposes medieval mysteries

Body: 
MOSCOW: Descending into the basement of the 1930s-era Kremlin administration building is an eerie experience: the corridors are still lined with brown Soviet tiles and walls bear remnants of secret communication wires.  But turning off to the left or right, concrete foundations have been removed from the humid underground storage rooms, giving a glimpse at some of the best-preserved remains of early Moscow's bustling mediaeval quarters.  Human bones jut out from the earthy sides of the dig, leftovers from an old necropolis for the gentry who once lived here. Beneath the drab flooring, archaeologists have marked the layered strata: 12th century, 13th century, 14th century. Since 2014, when President Vladimir Putin ordered the dismantling ...

By Kristen Wohlers The world’s largest museum now has an entire exhibit dedicated to a single book. But for Muslims, and as visitors quickly come to understand, the Qur’an is not just a book. “The Art of the Qur’an,” which opened on Oct. 22 in the Sackler Gallery in Washington, D.C., featured manuscripts of the Qur’an, which the Muslims believe to be the Word of God. Some were oversized, and they spanned from the early eighth century to the seventeenth. “This is an amazing human feat, both in creation and in preservation. Many of them are actual Qur’ans, are excerpts from the Qur’an or have some kind of Qur’anic chapter or verse embedded in them,” said Kane Mathis, who performed at the opening. In honor of the Qur’an being first an oral ...

    Gloucester Cathedral in southwest England, built around the year 678 and coronation  site for King Henry III (and several Harry Potter movies), is being upgraded with 200 solar panels to cut the church's energy bills by 25 percent. Located on the south nave roof, about 90 feet above the ground, the panels will be almost impossible to see from the ground and have been challenging to install. Renewable energy company Mypower is the installation contractor on the project and the firms' managing Partner Ben Harrison said they’ve had to work around twists and spots where the roof has sagged over time. He said they’ve worked closely with the cathedral’s structural engineers and architect to ensure the work is completed correctly. "At times...

We celebrate modern inventors for improving our lives. But what about those one thousand years ago who laid the very technological foundation of civilization as we know it? They too served the world.Since ancient times, the teaching of music had been done by a tiny and arrogant cartel of masters.In the first millennium AD, no one could figure out a reliable way to transmit musical ideas except by singing and playing them to each other in person. In the second millennium, a way emerged: the printed musical staff. It was a form of technology and it laid the foundation for astonishing innovations, beginning with polyphonic music, then symphonic music, then popular music, and the dizzying array of choices of all styles that surround us today...

Early in the morning of Nov. 4, I left there for the Kunsthistorisches Institut, the great German research library for Italian Renaissance art where I was a graduate fellow. Rain was cascading from a slate-gray sky, just as it had done for days before. As I nosed my Volkswagen Beetle toward the center of the city, I saw a torrent of water in the street. “Big water-main break,” I...
