Åkrafjorden Snøhetta

"The hunting lodge is beautifully situated, alone beside a lake in the untouched mountain areas close to Åkrafjorden in the western part of Norway. It is accessible only by foot or horseback. The integration of the hut into the landscape has been an important part of the concept. The terrain is characteristic with grass, heather and rocks, and the hut’s shape, orientation, and materials are dictated by this. “

What the fuck man

This post goes around on this site and everytime I see it, as a Theologist in making it annoys me to see these “militiant atheists” (or fedoraists, to seperate the good ones from the bad ones, cause I love you guys) who tries to falsely accuse the Holy Scriptures with things that are never said in either of the scriptures. "That women are to be sold if they were raped" in the Bible or "That women must sexually submit to men" in the Qu’ran. Ofcourse, I’m not trying to prove Satanism wrong, I don’t really care what people believe in, but I’m here to correct the misinterpretations by Tumblr’s gullible community as a way to educate, because it might actually interest you to know some real facts about what the Abrahamic religions says on the matter:

  • First of all - YOU ALL KNOW THAT ADULTERY IS PROHIBITED IN EITHER SCRIPTURES, YET YOU TRY TO TURN THOSE VERSES UPSIDE DOWN FOR YOUR OWN PLEASURE. 
    [17:32, 25:68-70, Quran] 
    [Exodus 20:14 Proverbs 6:32 Hebrew 13:4]

  • Second - There are no verses that said so, never has that been said.

  • Third - Noone sells women when they’ve been violated, who even does that today?

  • Fourth - Do you guys actually read the scriptures AT ALL???

  • Fifth - There’s one verse in Deuteronomy that claims that a Man should marry and stay with the woman if she’d been violated by him and pay her 50 shekels. [Deuteronomy 22:29]
    1. Christians do not follow the Torah/Old Testament anymore, they follow the New Testament. It’s called the New Covenant, and Jesus never claimed anything about selling women in the Gospels.
    2. The rapist is required to marry his victim, and is not permitted to divorce her without her consent. The Talmud explains that this obligation rests on the rapist,  NOT THE VICTIM. She is under no obligation to marry him.  ”He must pay fifty shekels to compensate her for the lack of gifts, and is also forced to marry her, should she desire it” says Bible commentator and philosopher Rabbi Isaac Abarbanel, so you won’t bash Judaism for that either.
    [Talmud, Ketubot 49b]
  • Fifth - FOR THE LAST TIME, USE SOURCES FOR THE VERSES THAT SAYS SO

  • Sixth - Rape is strictly forbidden in either scriptures and can result in a mild case of THE DEADNESS - not only is it Adultery, but in Islam, Christianity as well as Judaism it’s an act of terror against an individual and society.

That post has over 100,000 notes, can you believe that at least 50,000 people on this Shaytaan website fell for it and assumes that we all condone such acts?

Saint Jerome with Saint Paula and Saint Eustochium, 1640-50

National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC

"In seventeenth-century Spain, the religious orders were unrivaled in their patronage of the arts. Among the most important were the Hieronymites, whose white and brown habits are worn by these three saints: Paula, her daughter Eustochium, and Sophronius Eusebius Hieronymous, called Jerome in English. Under Jerome’s spiritual direction, the two women founded a hospice and convent in the Holy Land that were regarded as the initial establishments of the Hieronymite Order. Paula and Jerome hold books, alluding to Jerome’s role as the translator of the Bible into Latin. Paula, a well-educated woman from an illustrious Roman family, assisted Jerome with translations from Greek. Although Jerome is traditionally shown in a cardinal’s garb, this is ahistorical. He died around 420, but the office of cardinal was not created until the end of the eleventh century, and the red robe and hat were not adopted until the mid-1200s." (+)

"Jerome’s enemies found that his denunciations of clerical indulgence and advocacy of self-denial were odd when they considered his close relationship with Paula. An amorous relationship between Jerome and Paula was suggested as having occurred. - Palladius, a contemporary of Jerome, believed that Paula was hindered by Jerome: "For though she was able to surpass all, having great abilities, he hindered her by his jealousy, having induced her to serve his own plan."

"An anecdote told of Jerome, of twelfth-century origin, tells that Roman clergy hostile to Jerome planned to have him expelled from the city by planting a woman’s robe next to his bed. When Jerome awoke in the middle of the night to attend the service of matins, he absentmindedly put on the female robes. He was thus accused of having had a woman in his bed. This story acknowledges, while at the same time discrediting as a malicious slander, Jerome’s relationship with women, such the kind he is presumed to have had with Paula." (+)

Perhaps the most interesting thing about Hector’s place in the Iliad, and one of my favorite pieces out of Greek literature, is his interactions with his family. Very few domestic scenes from ancient Greek literature show as much honest compassion and love as do the scenes between Hector and his wife, Andromache. And of course his baby is pretty cute too:

"He stretched his arms towards his child, but the boy cried and nestled in his nurse’s bosom, scared at the sight of his father’s armor, and at the horse-hair plume that nodded fiercely from his helmet. His father and mother laughed to see him, but Hector took the helmet from his head and laid it all gleaming upon the ground. Then he took his darling child, kissed him, and dandled him in his arms, praying over him…”
