Roman Lesions and the March on our Minds
One letter style would come to dominate the world’s mass communications in all matters: the Roman style.
Latin did not always use capital letters. During the reign of Emperor Constantine (312-337CE) a smaller and more quickly written form called uncials gained favour for everyday use. (The Greeks had been using a similar system since about 3BCE.)
Circa 600CE Church missionaries short-measured us again when they introduced the Roman half uncial to Britain. These were modified and used as the Irish half uncial to write the “Book of Kells” on the sacred Isle of Iona.
A slight variation, called the English half uncial, became a favourite in the north of England, notably in Lindisfarne (Holy Island), where it charmed the script for the “Lindisfarne Gospels”. These were both constructed for in-house use and based on the same principles of design.
In 754, a right handy document to the Shadow forces of the Darkness popped up: the ‘Donation of Constantine’, supposedly dating from Constantine’s propitious conversion to Christianity in 312. Although it has since been decried as a crock the DC enabled the Pope to swan around in Constantine’s symbols and regalia (so subliminally hold his power). The Donation served its purpose and the Dark agenda moved inexorably onwards.
On the heels of the conjured ‘Document of Constantine’ the Roman Catholic Church introduced yet another script style. This one involved another key player in the Roman Church, Charlemagne (768-814), King of the Franks – earnestly.
In 789 Charlemagne brought an English monk, called Alcium of York, to Reims, where the Carolingian Miniscule script emerged. (My source pronounced it ‘Alcium’ but you’ll find him as Alcuin’: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcuin) It was Alcium who developed punctuation marks (commas – COMAS etc) and first created the writing system we use today, making the first letter in a SENTENCE a capital, with the smaller letters following in a string. Charlemagne ordered the Carolignian script to be used throughout the Holy Roman Empire.
Alcium established a college under Charlemagne, well not literally under him – where unwitting minds were overshadowed and trained to expand the Dark cause.
I am quite intrigued with old Alcium’s name. There seems to have been two possibilities for its origin. The first one was a Jewish High Priest during the Maccabean revolt in Judea, 2nd century BCE, who executed 60 scoundrels who had the cheek to heckle him. The other concerns a pair of transvestite gods called the Alci. There is not much known about them, but what we do know is passed down to us by the 1st century Roman historian Tacitus who got wind of their story in Germany. Tacitus reckoned that the Alci twins were a version of the Roman gods Castor and Pollux – I said Pollux. These are another version of the twins of the Zodiac – Gemini – whose planet is Mercury, the governor of writing, the mind, and intellectual matters – and a snitch. Seems rather coincidental to me. Perhaps Alcium’s name was really Albert Shuffleyabum-Sideways, but he thought that Alcium had more of a certain je ne sais quoi to it.
Although at first there were some books produced with calligraphic print in England, the Roman style became the overwhelming favourite after it was introduced by John Day in 1572. Printing presses sprung up (and down) all over the country but they became concentrated in London and of course the premier hub of the Dark agenda’s programming system, Oxford.
With the introduction of the printing press into Blighty during the late 1400s, the pace forged ahead. King James VI of Scotland, a Freemason, married the thrones of Scotland and England when he was crowned James I in 1603. In 1611, (Oxford’s) Wadham College’s Invisible College set loose the ‘Authorised King James Bible’, but it must have been translated (and modified) long before. Come 1627, their master encryptor and translator, Francis Bacon, was egging up the concept of a world university and obsequiously being used to gather useful kids to (as it turned out) put through their indoctrination schemes, when he published his work, ‘The New Atlantis’. Not long after this the press gang’s mass media would begin to come into its own.
