Sorry, lassie. But…wtf are you talking about?
Oh. Your University Degree.
Damn Mem? No Shit, Sherlock.
Damnatio memoriae is a modern Latin phrase meaning “condemnation of memory”, indicating that a person is to be excluded from official accounts. There are and have been many routes to damnatio memoriae, including the destruction of depictions, the removal of names from inscriptions and documents, and even large-scale rewritings of history. The term can be applied to other instances of official scrubbing; the practice is seen as long ago as the aftermath of the reign of the Egyptian Pharaohs Akhenaten (THE FATHER OF SCOTA, FOUNDER OF IRELAND & SCOTLAND, maybe) in the 13th century BC, and Hatshepsut in the 14th century BC.
So WHY was Andronicus I Comnenus’s memory DAMNED?
Because he took from the rich (his own family) to give to the poor (his people.)
That is bad!
Because he’d been exiled for most of his life and spent many years with family in Russia and “maybe” all countries from Crimea to Scotland/Ireland and back again as his cousins usurped the Byzantine Emperor’s Throne.
How Very Dare He?
Because he MIGHT have been born in 1152 and crucified in 1185…33 years later?
That is just stupid and must be wrong!
Deep breath, relax. I have not seen the TARTARIAN FLAG here or the BBBB which means King of Kings.
Thank you for your video, hen.
