Click here for previous session     And under this new decree, the executions certainly did not slacken. Men in the highest and the humblest positions were daily and hourly dragged to the stake. Alva, in a single letter to Phillip, coolly estimated the number of executions which were to take place immediately after the expiration of holy week, at “eight hundred heads.” Many a citizen, convicted of a hundred thousand florins and of no other crime, saw himself suddenly tied to a horse’s tail, with his hands fastened behind him, and so dragged to the gallows. But although wealth was an unpardonable sin, poverty proved rarely a protection. Reasons sufficient could always be found for dooming the starveling labourer as well as the opulent burgher. To avoid the disturbances created in…

Click here for previous session     So, if not on the basis of the second commandment, why else should anyone object? Well, does the biblical passage stating that God created man “in Our image, according to Our likeness” mean that God created man to look like Him, or to have dominion over worldly creation, similar to how God has dominion over all Creation, ourselves included? The latter is the context in which this verse was revealed, for the full verse reads, “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth” (Genesis 1:26). This verse doesn’t read, “In Our image, according to Our likeness; let him have eyes and a nose, a mouth…

MY IRREPLACEABLE MOTHER

She took patience to get hooked up by a fatherly husband, from whose exemplary responsibleness I was nurtured to be great. When she conceived of me in that elastically tiny abode, I unavoidably troubled her well-being for not less than 270 days. My mother vomited numberlessly as I was enjoyably growing in her womb. She…
