>Forasmuch as there are certain persons who kneel on the Lord's Day [Sunday] and in the days of Pentecost, therefore, to the intent that all things may be uniformly observed everywhere (in every parish), it seems good to the holy Synod that prayer be made to God standing.

Lyotard famously defines the postmodern as 'incredulity towards metanarratives,' where metanarratives are understood as totalising stories about history and the goals of the human race that ground and legitimise knowledges and cultural practises.
Is he the only coherent post-structuralist there is?
Is the meta-narrative just taking the mono-myth and trying to apply to real life? We fictionalize life and turn it into a story about a heroes triumphing over and restoring light to civilization.
Are wars beneficial to the economy? Is it a necessary evil?
Hello, I was redirected here from /k/, I'm an artist looking to discuss the Ottoman Empire, mainly the weapons and armor they used. Bonus points if it's within the late 1500s-1700. With enough help I could draw some stuff.
The Ottomans adopted a lot when they started becoming an Empire. When they fought with Europe, gunpowder did enter their arsenal.
An effective military society/caste (depends who you talk to) called Janissaries arose during this time. They were men taken as children from Christian families in the Balkans and the Middle East. They were trained to be strong Islamic men, and fought against the various enemies of the Empire.
So to answer this, Eastern Europe was not so much an influence. If you count the Balkans as Eastern Europe, then yes the influence was great. Modern day hatred between the various Balkan groups came from Ottoman cleverness. Remember those Janissaries? Well, the Ottomans would deploy, say, 1000 Serbian Janissaries against Albanian targets.
The locals began to mistrust one another rather than their overlord. A brilliant tactic really.
The Ottomans learned the power of gunpowder from fighting larger European powers...
