2023-10-20T10:22:01+02:00

By Carlos S. Francis The beauty of every city has a tale to tell. Paris. An unruly people. After all, they were the first to lop off the heads of royalty denying the central principle of pre-Enlightenment Europe-- the divine right of Kings to rule. If Parisians were unhappy the cry "Aux Barricades!" rang out. The narrow winding streets of medieval Paris made it easy to create roadblocks and each street became a stronghold. Emperor Napoleon III commissioned Baron Haussmann (1809-1891) to design a new city. New squares. New parks. And broad boulevards. Beautiful. And far easier to stamp [...]

The University that brought down a regime

2021-03-15T14:37:30+01:00

University of Leipzig with St Pauls Church © Universität Leipzig by Carlos S. Francis For more than 700 years St Paul's University Church, the heart of the University of Leipzig (1409), had survived.
