Chalice à Soleil (1532–33)

This chalice, made in the early French Renaissance, is decorated with motifs that derived from the late medieval period: wavy sun rays on the bowl and dome of the foot, which evoke the meditation on the Sacred Monogram as preached by Saint Bernardin of Siena (d. 1444), and lily petals, a symbol of the Virgin. The projecting twelve semicircles of the foot and the twelve bosses of the knop are references to the apostles. These lively features are joined by others taken from the more static repertoire of classical ornament derived from Roman architecture: a stem formed as a fluted column, the flutes alternately channeled, beading at the junction of stem and foot, acanthus on the upper and lower poles of the knop; and a wreath encircling the step of the foot. Fleurs-de-lis, emblems of the French crown, are, strangely, found here and on other French liturgical objects of the sixteenth century and may refer to the control over the Church in France won by Francis I from Pope Leo X by the Concordat of Bologna in 1515. Inserted on the foot is a silver plaque engraved with the Episcopal hat, arms, with two angelic supporters of Bishop Fabio Mirto Frangipani, papal nuncio to the court of Charles IX from 1568 to 1572 and again in 1585. Engraved in the Fontainebleau style, this plaque replaces an earlier insert, which may have been enameled with a Crucifixion scene or engraved with the arms of the previous owner.

This is the most beautiful chalice I have ever seen.

Pourquoi les Chinois remportent-ils autant de médailles? Éthique? Idéalisme? Patriotisme? Méthodes communistes? Eh oui!

——————————————

Why do China get so many medals? Ethical, idealistic or patriotic approach? Typical communist methods? Yup…

Le révolution française et les républiques qui lui ont succédé en France n’ont rien à voir avec la Franc-maçonnerie selon une personne qui m’a écrit via mon blog (http://www.lysdunord.com/blog) … Tout cela serait l’invention d’Augustin Barruel qui aurait notamment confondu (volontairement) “allégories de la Liberté comme principe… symboles iconographiques révolutionnaires et républicains” et occultisme maçonnique. C’est mal connaître l’argumentaire de l’Abbé Barruel et c’est nous prendre pour des imbéciles heureux! Une image valant mille mots, je vous offre quelques exemples.

The French revolution and the republics that followed in France would have nothing to do with Free masonry: that’s what someone told me through my blog (http://www.lysdunord.com/blog). All this story would be an hoax based on the writings of Augustin Barruel who misinterpreted (on purpose) the signification and inspiration of the pictorial allegories of Liberty, as a principle, (…) the republican iconography and the occult symbols of Freemasonry. Such a statement shows a poor knowledge of Father Barruel’s arguments, and, which is worst, it is quite and insult to common sense. Since an image is worth a thousand words, I have decided to include a few examples. Have fun!

Harold Lloyd, 1927

Harrold Lloyd is by far an underrated genius! Charlie Caplin and Buster Keaton are considered the nec plus ultra of silent comedy, but come on, Lloyd is hilarious and there’s something about his naive ‘good guy’ character that makes it all unresistible. Give him a try at least once ;)

As I said, the similarity is puzzling…

Comme je le mentionnais, les concordances sont surprenantes…

As a catholic historian I could not miss that one: The opening ceremony of London Games  borrowed one of  it’s main theme to Freemasonry! I can’t wait to be able to produce pictures of the ‘Tree at the top of the green mountain’ from tonight’s show, side by side with this period drawing of the Feast of the Supreme Being (French Revolution, 1794)… Quite interesting to note that the flags of all nations were gathered on this prop tonight.

En tant qu’historien catholique, je ne pouvais pas louper l’allusion: La cérémonie d’ouverture des J.O. de Londres emprunte un de ses thèmes visuels à la Franc-maçonnerie! Je suis impatient de pouvoir produire une comparaison côte à côte de cette gravure de la fête de l’ëtre Suprême (1794) et de la colline verdoyante, au sentier sinueux, qui culmine avec un arbre. Les drapeaux de tous les pays y ont été disposés ce soir…
