>>17384 >Herculaneum (bar/inn joined to the maritime baths); 10675: Two friends were here. While they were, they had bad service in every way from a guy named Epaphroditus. They threw him out and spent 105 and half sestertii most agreeably on whores. I wonder if its the same lads
>>17319 >VIII.2 (in the basilica); 1824: Let everyone one in love come and see. I want to break Venus’ ribs with clubs and cripple the goddess’ loins. If she can strike through my soft chest, then why can’t I smash her head with a club? What a supreme gentleman.
>VIII.2 (in the basilica); 1837: If you are able, but not willing, why do you put off our joy and kindle hope and tell me always to come back tomorrow. So, force me to die since you force me to live without you. Your gift will be to stop torturing me. Certainly, hope returns to the lover what it has once snatched away.
>>17319 >I.10.2-3 (Bar of Prima); 8258, 8259: The story of Successus, Severus and Iris is played out on the walls of a bar: [Severus]: “Successus, a weaver, loves the innkeeper’s slave girl named Iris. She, however, does not love him. Still, he begs her to have pity on him. His rival wrote this. Goodbye.”. [Answer by Successus]: “Envious one, why do you get in the way. Submit to a handsomer man and one who is being treated very wrongly and good looking.” [Answer by Severus]: “I have spoken. I have written all there is to say. You love Iris, but she does not love you.”
>>18133 I used to sometimes masturbate to a fantastical alternate history where Luther remained loyal to the Church and advanced into the bishopry, and eventually wound up a cardinal. He became grossly fat, and I would jerk off to the thought of him gorging himself while meekly affirming the authority of the Pope.
>Suppose I should counsel the wife of an impotent man, with his consent, to giver herself to another, say her husband’s brother, but to keep this marriage secret and to ascribe the children to the so-called putative father. The question is: Is such a women in a saved state? I answer, certainly.
>Christ committed adultery first of all with the women at the well about whom St. John tell’s us. Was not everybody about Him saying: ‘Whatever has He been doing with her?’ Secondly, with Mary Magdalen, and thirdly with the women taken in adultery whom He dismissed so lightly. Thus even, Christ who was so righteous, must have been guilty of fornication before He died
>Know that Marriage is an outward material thing like any other secular business.
>Martin Luther also took note of the similarities between Islam and Protestantism in the rejection of idols, although he noted Islam was much more drastic in its complete rejection of images. In On War against the Turk, Luther is actually less critical of the Turks than he is of the Pope, whom he calls an anti-Christ, or the Jews, whom he describes as "the Devil incarnate". He urges his contemporaries to also see the good aspects in the Turks, and refers to some who were favourable to the Ottoman Empire, and "who actually want the Turk to come and rule, because they think that our German people are wild and uncivilized - indeed that they are half-devil and half-man".
>Martin Luther's ambivalence also appears in one of his other comments, in which he said that "A smart Turk makes a better ruler than a dumb Christian".
>The Ottomans also felt closer to the Protestants than to the Catholics. At one point, a letter was sent from Suleiman the Magnificent to the "Lutherans" in Flanders, claiming that he felt close to them, "since they did not worship idols, believed in one God and fought against the Pope and Emperor".
>>19339 funnily enough, there's a story in the Decameron (which was written in the 1300's) about two merchants in Paris who are friends, one jewish one christian. The christian is really upset over the idea that his friend is going to go to hell so he tries to get him to convert. He has him meet with a local preacher but he decides he can't turn his back on his faith. Eventually when he sees how much his friend is bothered the jew tells him he'll go to Rome and meet with the pope to get a better understanding of christianity. The christian merchant's heart sinks when he hears this because he knows the pope is a completely corrupt creep and once he meets him he'll NEVER convert. But when he gets back from Rome he's already been baptized, shocked he asks him what changed his mind to which he tells him all these stories about the terrible debauchery he saw amongst the clergy in Rome. Yet despite this christianity has flourished while judaism has suffered, clearly this is evidence that christianity is god's one true faith.
>>19147 Only reason iirc Protestantism even took off was because the pope didn't grant his annulment to his first wife on the count that Chucky and the Frenchies had Rome at the time, and they frowned upon shit like divorces. If the Pope granted his request in front of the French, it would have caused a shitstorm. If French forces weren't in Rome at time and the Pope granted the annulment, I don't think Henry would have invented Protestantism just so he could get his divorce.
>>19466 >Why the FUCK did this addled German shitposter get taken seriously? This is ridiculous. THIS is the fellow that Protestants consider the founder of their religion? Literally because barons and kings who wanted churches they could control supported him.
>>19147 The church during Luthers time was corrupt to the core. It needed to change. Luther never set out to destroy the Catholic Church however. His hand was forced when the Pope broke with him and the German princes saw an opportunity to centralise church authority to themselves. It's like how he became an anti-semite after they denied his call for conversion. With Luther you get one chance to reconsider before you become his mortal enemy.
Luther in the end ended up as a political pawn. While he wanted the state to confiscate church property, he also wanted the state to dole out its bloated riches to the poor and needy. Instead, the state took the wealth for itself. This is the reason Protestantism even took hold. Because it further centralised royal authority.
>>17319 >Herculaneum (on a water distribution tower); 10488: Anyone who wants to defecate in this place is advised to move along. If you act contrary to this warning, you will have to pay a penalty. Children must pay [number missing] silver coins. Slaves will be beaten on their behinds.
>Herculaneum (on the exterior wall of a house); 10619: Apollinaris, the doctor of the emperor Titus, defecated well here
