The idea of ​​evil has never been in the shadow of history. Christianity, which became the very foundation of European civilization, placed the opposition of good and evil at the epicenter of the intellectual reflection of European society. It is no secret that the Christian God was thought to be the personification of good, while evil in the European consciousness was embodied in the defective and ghostly nature of the devil and his demons. At the sunset of the Middle Ages, the ever-lasting idea of ​​evil acquired a special sound in public consciousness in connection with the well-known...

Hydrogenation of organic substances was first developed in 1897. In 1907, a German chemist, Edwin Kuno Kaiser, moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, the hometown of the Procter & Gamble soap maker. Shortly after arrival, Kaiser entered into a commercial deal with Procter & Gamble and submitted two cotton oil hydrogenation technologies to the company for the purpose of creating raw materials for soap production.

Baldwin grew up in a family of a stepfather, a priest and was the oldest of nine children.

In his youth, Baldwin is going to follow in the footsteps of his stepfather and helps him in the church. But the older the future writer becomes, the more distinctly he understands that his stepfather’s sermons diverge from what is happening on the streets of Harlem, and, most importantly, with the behavior of the stepfather himself at home. After leaving school in the Bronx, Baldwin moved to...

  • Autor: William Shakespeare
The tragedy "Macbeth", like many of Shakespeare’s dramatic works, was created on the basis of the legend of the tyrant king, the image of which the author so masterfully embodied. However, researchers of Shakespeare and historians have come to the conclusion that the pathos and plot of the work contradicts historical facts. During the reign of the Scottish King Macbeth, bard poets belonging to opposition circles created a story about a killer ruler, which served as the source for the play....

  • Autor: Hutton Webster
This book aims to furnish a concise and connected account of human progress during ancient, medieval, and early modern times. It should meet the requirements of those high schools and preparatory schools where ancient history, as a separate discipline, is being supplanted by a more extended course introductory to the study of recent times and contemporary problems. Such a course was first outlined by the Regents of the University of the State of New York in their _Syllabus for Secondary Schools_, issued in 1910....

  • Fiction
  • 1840
  • Autor: Mikhail Iurevich Lermontov
The novel "Hero of Our Time" was first published in 1840. Then no one could have imagined that the author’s life would end so soon, and many contemporaries predicted Mikhail Yuryevich a great future precisely as a prose writer. Gogol, in particular, remarked: "Lermontov the prose writer will be higher than Lermontov the poet." With his novel “The Hero of Our Time” Lermontov greatly expanded the scope of the literary tradition. Unusual was the composition of the work, consisting of five independent stories. A peculiar chronology of events and a constantly changing circle of heroes attracted...
