Christianity was waning, and “the aristocracy” was, too. The Church said to the royalty, “Hey, we’re literate — most of you guys are not. We’re losing clout, you’re losing clout. Let’s join forces.” The concept of Rule by Divine Right was promoted, and the iconography got combined — that’s why you see “Christ the King,” “The Infant of Prague,” the word “royal” mixed in with so many Church things, et c. And mottos such as DIEU ET MON DROIT. The Church became advisors to royalty, and was favored. A spin doctor’s dream, heck of a PR job, lasted a long time! The origins of Christianity are probably just fine, really, ditto royalty and aristocracy. Aristocracy began when someone (usually a man with a great wife) was good with, say, agriculture. He did okay, and told those right around him, “Hey, plant this or that at such and such a time, it’ll be good!” People around him began to do better, and he got respect. He was also good at organizing works for the good of the community. Bridges, defense systems such as walls, water works, et c. The locals did better with this cool family in their midst, who were looked up to. Things come and go. The cycles may be very long. It could be argued that Christianity was pretty much “thunk up” for a purpose, and if you look closely, certain people, such as Constantine, used it to great advantage in a kind of “divide and conquer” play. I hope you’ve seen recent French msm reports on ancient Aramaic language documents recently found. Christ and Mary Magdalene were married — the ancient word “wife” is used for her, not “female,” and they had TWO children. Really, though, what “works” is what will prevail, even if it’s “bad.” I’m very interesting in watching what goes on with the church down my street here in France. It’s the world’s first Gothic church, and this whole place is riddled with ancient sites, which turn up during public works a heck of a lot, such as Charlemagne’s castle, Merovingian cemeteries, prehistoric stuff, Gallo-Roman wine cellars and super-early Christian stuff, which fully combines druid stuff into its form and design. Over 80 languages per day are spoken here, the the full and vital congregation of the basilica (a cathedral since 1967) is very interesting to observe. All colors, attire, gather there and fast, direct charity and community works are constantly being organized. A local order of nuns cares for 82 elderly residents (they cannot take on more than that) and regularly ask for items the old folks need — very reasonable stuff, too. If a group shows up who needs work, housing, food and integration, we meet them at Mass and have been advised what they need and they come from all over the world as well as locally. I’m not saying it’s good or better, but it’s been very interesting to observe for 21 years now here. Very good clip, uprated.
