so let’s get to the weft
– alas, i shall set the mood first
my poem from the 7th of March, 2014 :
the narrative has been lost since ’14 :
— east meets west with a loud thunder, and awakens the west from it’s slumber —
may galicia and kievan-rus part ways amicably …
there are larger issues at hand
One Reply to “it’s a wrap – and it’s warp”
In the first half of the XVI century, Armenian widower Tashko Mikhnevich fell in love with his maid, the beautiful Sofia Gurskaya, a Polish Catholic. They had a son. Sofia also took care of her son Ivashka from her first marriage in a motherly way. But at that time, the city authorities persecuted the Armenians (for their power and wealth). And the magistrate of Lviv accused the lovers of having an affair, because they belonged to different religious denominations. Lviv became the first city in the world where the city court in 1518 decided to publicly burn lovers. The lovers sentenced to death, tied shoulder to shoulder and doused with tar, were taken out of town. Approaching the place of execution, the unfortunate people held unlit torches in their hands. Upon arrival, the torches were set on fire and the “sinners” of soot lit their deadly hearth. The Polish king, having learned about this execution, was terribly angry. He ordered monetary compensation to be paid to the Armenian community. It is not known whether it was paid or not.
*God bless the galicians – even when describing the burning of a couple in love, wink-wink [one armenian (pro-apostolic? muslim?), one polish catholic], the lesson here is L’viv is for
pure ukrainian orthodoxi ?
nope, likely just an excuse to kill an armenian for cash/jealousy in the outskirts of the polish-lithuanian kingdom.
[and, if it needs saying, the orders of a Polish king mean little]
