    for my dnd, skyrim, and league verses in which sera is the archmage of a prestigious magic college, she basically upends all institution traditions (if they existed) and builds her own. one of the most major systems she implements is a new ranking system based on a mixture of age and experience. they are as follows.
    foundling - newly admitted students to the academy. foundlings are not permitted in the library and take only beginner level courses. more often than not, they act as simple errand runners for higher ranking students and for professors.
    apprentice - one rank above foundling, where they still act as errand runners but are permitted to study within the library. they have limited access to the texts within, and have to ask permission to look at certain tomes. they are not allowed to take books home for study.
    apprentice executor - fully enrolled in intermediate to advanced level courses and no longer act as errand runners. this time can be dedicated to tutoring younger foundlings and apprentices if their grades are exemplary, otherwise apprentice executors are encouraged to begin thinking about a specialized field of study. they still have to ask permission to look at certain tomes in the library, but are permitted to take them home.
    lector - fully enrolled in advanced level courses. they act as assistants to professors and can even step in as substitutes for them in beginner level courses. they are required to hold office hours just the same as professors. they must dedicate themselves to one field of study – a case can be made for more, but such a case must pass through ministerial judgement, and ultimately satisfy the archmage. this is the most rigorous student position, in which they must complete and research a project of their own making and present it to ministerial board and the archmage. lectors are also allowed to go on one research expedition a term with a certain professor, but not with the archmage.
    lector executor - a lector who has completed their project with the approval of the board, but does not wish to teach. they are permitted to leave at any time and can carry the title of “lector executor” along with them, so long as they continue they come back once a year to give a guest lecture. if they choose to remain at the college, they will be expected to sign up for three research expeditions a year to both further their research and acquire new texts for the school. they no longer need to ask permission to look at certain tomes and can take whatever they choose home. cannot be promoted to minister.
    professor - a lector who has completed their project with the approval of the board and wishes to continue their career at the university as a full-fledged professor, should there be space available. they can either take over for other professors as they retire or create new classes with the approval of the archmage. they are free to conduct research for their own projects as they wish, and no longer need permission to look at certain tomes. they can also take these books home. can be promoted to minister.
    minister - one of 12 ministers that oversee an entire school of magic or area of study. they work closely with the archmage on both research and administrative tasks including but not limited to: approving research projects, raising student ranks, disciplinary actions, heading research expeditions, admitting new students, and voting for new ministers/a new archmage should they retire/die.
    archmage - the final and highest rank. anything that ministers cannot agree on, the archmage has final say. they are the only one who can overturn past decisions made by the board of ministers and dismiss anyone they see fit. in practice, their position is ultimately a mix of both minister and professor.

    St. Peter's Basilica and Square

    Outside the ancient city of Rome lies Christendom’s grandest Church: the Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican — resting place of the Prince of the Apostles and the First Pope of the Roman Catholic Church.

    This magnificent edifice — and the piazza directly in front of it — however, were not always places of veneration and worship. During the rule of the pagan emperors, Vatican Hill was no more than a suburb with a cemetery, its only attracting feature was a circus oh which stood an obelisk from Egypt. In the outskirts of this circus, as Catholic Tradition maintains, the apostle Peter was crucified and subsequently buried.

    Peter was just one of the thousands of Christian martyrs that Rome produced, indeed, as the centre of the pagan empire, the lives of many Christians perished within its walls. Despite centuries of persecution, however, the Christian religion grew and gained temporal influence and power. After the legalisation of Christianity by the emperor Constantine, the faithful in the city began openly practicing their monotheistic faith, coming out of the catacombs and erecting conspicuous places of worship to venerate their departed brethren and offer sacrifice to their God, Saint Peter’s was among these first martyr tombs to be built into magnificent edifices — by the emperor himself!

    Since the building housed the remains of the first pope, it would come as no surprise that it became a focal point of pilgrimage and influence in the Christian World, Popes would conduct their ceremonies and liturgies within its walls. Saint Peter’s Basilica provided stability and continuity for the pontiffs that claim succession from the first pope — a person who is hailed not only as God’s physical representative on earth, but also as the head of the Papal States and of the faithful throughout the world.

    Inside the basilica, and indeed, in most of the churches throughout Rome, burials and monuments have been erected to commemorate the saints, their relics are prized and esteemed as holy, believing that the holiness of their souls are apparent and intact in their remains; for if the soul is holy, so also the body which housed it is as well sacrosanct. Relics are a feature of the Catholic Church that has continued throughout the centuries, baffling some and scandalising others, while still capturing the attention and awe of many. These relics, factual or not, are after all, a reminder of the people and places which they venerate and attempt to imitate. Relics and edifices are attempts to remind the beholder of the physicality of their belief — that these were real people who walked the same roads they trod, and in so doing they remind the faithful of what matters; they remind the faithful of their goal: Heaven.

    Saint Peter’s Basilica and Piazza are the aftereffect of the death of, at least in the eyes of the Romans, an insignificant and old man. From the tomb of the apostle rose the sprig of the faith, which, nourished by the blood of more and more martyrs, came to overcome adversity and assert its supremacy over the powers who willed her destruction. All this goes to show that we should never underestimate the life and death of even one person, as that one person could be the spark that would lead to the spreading of a flame still bright up to this day.

    👣 "E o que o ser humano mais aspira é tornar-se ser humano". - Clarice Lispector 👣 Quando a gente vai se aprofundando nas histórias que envolvem os Caminhos de Santiago, aprendemos que nem tudo foi flores na vida daqueles que nos antecederam... 👣 Mérida foi fundada pelos romanos no século I A.C. Os vestígios da cidade antiga incluem o ainda utilizado Teatro Romano, (muito bonito!) que possui dois níveis de colunas que se erguem no palco. 👣 A antiga Puente Romano, uma ponte de 792 metros (me disseram que é a maior e mais conservada de todas as pontes românicas da Espanha! 🤔) que atravessa o Rio Guadiana, faz a ligação à Alcazaba, uma fortaleza islâmica do século IX construída sobre as muralhas romanas. 📷 👣 A cidade ostenta o título de “Muito Nobre, Antiga, Grande e Leal cidade de Mérida”. 👣 Tinha tudo para ser próspera desde sua fundação, mas, foi conquistada pelos muçulmanos, reconquistada pelos cristãos e hoje é a capital da região da Extremadura. 👣 O Conjunto Arqueológico de Mérida foi incrito na lista do Património Mundial em 1993 devido à sua importância histórica e monumental. 👣 Na entrada da cidade se encontra o albergue de peregrinos, numa área bem estratégica e bonita, vale à pena pernoitar ali, sem falar no caloroso atendimento dos hospitaleiros voluntários. 👣 Um passeio noturno pela cidade é inesquecível, pode-se visitar o Teatro Romano que possui apresentações diárias. 👣 Vida noturna bastante agitada, com muitas opções gastronômicas. Descobrir os segredos dos seres humanos que passaram por ali é uma oportunidade que não se pode deixar para trás! 👣 Uma boa semana pra todos e Buen Camino pereginos! 👣 📷 Palmeiras - Via de la Plata - 2017 👉 Follow us! 📖 e-Book disponível Grátis! 🌍 Links na bio! 🤜🤛 #elpelegrino #caminodesantiago #caminosantiagocompostela #viadelaplata #caminosantiagonorte #caminofrances #caminosantiagoprimitivo #caminosantiagoportugues #santiagodecompostela #pilgrim #buencamino #peregrino #spain #pilgrimage #elcaminodesantiago #pilgrim #jakobsweg #hiking #ultreya #backpacking #stjamesway #theway #Jacobeu2021 #Xacobeu2021 #storytelling #motivation #photography #cruzeiro #mirador #soucatolico (em Mérida, Spain) https://www.instagram.com/p/CW6gwg1vF7d/?utm_medium=tumblr

    On Pilgrimage with Michael Nazir-Ali

    On Pilgrimage with Michael Nazir-Ali

    Where would you go? I opted for the Catacombs since, despite many trips to Rome, I’ve never visited them. They are where many martyrs were buried during the great persecutions to keep them safe from desecration. But they also became early places of Christian worship, particularly the Eucharist which was celebrated around the tombs of the martyrs. Would you make any special stops? The tombs of SS…

    about ten years ago bethel church (one of those charismatic megachurches who make really generic worship music) took a bunch of students to bradford to visit the grave of an early pentecostal faith healer called smith wigglesworth and engaged in necromancy which sure is something you could do i guess

    The Maya Ruins of Tulum

    I made my first pilgrimage to the ruins of Tulum in 1995. The archaeological site is located about 40 miles south of Playa del Carmen on Mexico's Caribbean coast. Though modest and architecturally simple compared to Classic Maya sites, such as Uxmal and Chichén Itzá, Tulum has one of the most beautiful idyllic settings of any city built by the Maya. The tranquil and well-preserved ruins are perched on a rocky cliff above a secluded swimming beach along the Caribbean Sea. Tulum's spectacular photogenic coastline has powdered sugar sands, cobalt water and balmy breezes, making it a popular destination for tourists and locals alike.

    Tulum was one of the last great ritual centers built by the Post-Classic Period Maya (900–1500 AD). The site might have originally been called Zama, meaning City of Dawn, because it faces the sunrise. The city had access to both land and sea trade routes, making it an important trade hub for honey, jade, turquoise and cacao beans. Tulum is a Mayan word that means wall or fence. Tulum was protected on one side by steep sea cliffs and on the landward side by a broad stone wall that averaged 10 to 16 feet in height. It is this impressive wall that makes Tulum one of the most well known fortified sites of the Maya.

    The ancient stone structures of Tulum are surrounded by palm trees, magenta-colored bougainvillea, steep rocky cliffs and a population of large iguanas. El Castillo (the Castle) is Tulum's main pyramid and was used as an ancient lighthouse for navigating the shallow, reef-laden waters off the bay. Among the more spectacular buildings here is the Temple of the Frescoes that included a lower gallery and a smaller second story gallery of wall paintings. The Temple of the Frescoes was used as an observatory for tracking the movements of the sun.

    Pilgrims have been coming here for centuries. Recent research has indicated that Tulum was a pilgrimage site for Maya women on their way to the sanctuary of Ixchel on the island of Cozumel. Ixchel was the jaguar goddess of fertility, medicine and birth in ancient Maya culture, and her shrine at Cozumel was visited by large numbers of women from throughout the Maya territories. Ixchel figures prominently in the Tulum temple murals. Many of the coastal towns in the Tulum region have the feminine "Ix" prefix in their names.

    Tulum is a tropical nirvana built, according to Maya myth, at the boundary between this world and the next where the created world ends and the infinite Otherworld ocean begins. Here the Maya soul found release into a realm of eternal light and danced forever on the surface of the infinite Otherworldly sea. It is one of my favorite places in the world. The energy is peaceful and transcendent. The world seems more vibrant and alive here. If there is an earthly paradise, it is here!
