Did you know that Kopernik was a woman?



Have you seen the city of Kopernik - Toruń, beautiful city on UNESCO list, they have trams, sth you could take the example of.

I think it is quite obvious that Immanuel Kant was Pole. In polish "Kant" means "edge" or "trick" so how could he not be Pole with such polish name... ;-) Ok, just kidding... it was stupid joke ;-). You have to keep in mind that... hmm... nationality-oriented countries are invention of second half of XIX century. In polish we have this term "Wiosna Ludów" to describe revolutions of 1848 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolutions_of_1848 . Before the half of XIX century not many people thought about themselves in terms of their nationality. They thought more about their Heimat, than Vaterland. And another thing is - how to check someones nationality? Do they inherit nationality of their parents? Or maybe their nationality depends on culture in which they were raised? Or maybe people can choose they nationality - despite beiing born in one, and raised in another they choose third nationality to be their own. I think only option would be ask Immanuel Kant what nationality is he, but i think his answer would be something about Imperative or Transcendention ;-) Or he would just say he's Prussian.

One should add that Kant for 5 years (since 1758 to 1762) has been a citizen of the Russian Empire. So he was Russian above all.

Map of Brandenburg-Prussia (at the time when Immanuel Kant had completed his initial studies at Collegium Fredericum and enrolled at the University of Koenigsberg)


The government of Brandenburg-Prussia, seated in Brandenburg's capital Berlin since 1701. While Brandenburg was part of the Holy Roman Empire, territories of Duchy of Prussia were never formally part of the HRE.

Is this white modern building on the left an extension to this prestigeous historical structure? Do you have more photos of this complex - looks interesting.

Interesting and encouraging development. What did they look like before they were destroyed?

Yes, this white building looks a little bit strange near this beautiful theatre building.

Here is a view of theatre before restoration in google street view:

Hey guys make sure we are playing nice

I love a healthy debate but they turn sour when we start name calling!

Some fascinating information being shared here.

Since we're talking about Mendelsohn: here is the link to the site with pics of the rent-house, where he was born (4 pics)

As I see, everywhere they were using the same composition, the same representation. Compare with Krzemenica, Niasvizh or Videniškės church tombs.

Yes, this tomb is typical for Polish Renaissance sepulchral art sleeping pose, which was firstly presented in ~1520s in Krakow (e.g. Piotr Tomicki's tomb from 1524-1530 and Zygmunt I Stary tomb from 1529-1531) and later quickly spread across the country.

Btw, in England, France, Germany and Netherlands during that architectural period cadaver tombs (macabre form of a decomposing corps), figured ledger stones and decorated coffins were popular, while in Protestant Duchy of Prussia, elaborate tombs were prohibited. Of course, Warmia region at the time was part of Polish Crown.

Sleeping pose + praying pose.

Of course, probably most of these works were even created by the same person(s).
