    Scientists at the University of Oxford may have solved one of the biggest questions in modern physics, with a new paper unifying dark matter and dark energy into a single phenomenon: a fluid which possesses 'negative mass." If you were to push a negative mass, it would accelerate towards you. This astonishing new theory may also prove right a prediction that Einstein made 100 years ago. 3D illustration of the dark matter explosion and...

    Alain Di Rocco, Année 451, la victoire de l'occident, Milhaud, 2018.

    L'histoire contée dans ce livre retrace les évènements de la bataille des champs Catalauniques de l'an 451, opposant Attila à la tête de ses terrifiantes hordes hunniques aux populations du pays gallo-romain.
    Ce conflit se déroula en Gaule, partie intégrante de l'Empire romain alors agonisant. Pour la première fois de son histoire, elle vit combattre côte à côte sur ses terres de nouveaux peuples – francs, burgondes, wisigoths, sarmates – auprès de ses chers fils gaulois.
    Cette bataille sauva la Gaule, unissant des peuples de cultures différentes mais tous avec la volonté de défendre leur territoire : la future France.

    Of the theological topics that I tackle in my book Theology and Science Fiction, one that students at McCormick Seminary were particularly interested in when I made a guest appearance there in October, was what I wrote about immortality. And yet it was a topic that we didn’t get to talk about as much as I […]

    Archives in Context: A Persian and Babylonia Project

    Archives in Context introduces the study of Babylonian private archives to anyone who is interested in ancient Babylonia and the documents left behind by its inhabitants. This includes students of Assyriology and scholars from other disciplines. On the Archives in Context website, advanced students and researchers of the ancient Near East unveil the secrets of the Neo- and Late Babylonian private archives (c. 620-330 BCE). Through a series of short articles, accompanied by images and visualizations, you will learn about these archives, from their production and use to their discovery and decipherment. We provide short explanations of specific terminology and we link to other websites where you can learn more about certain subjects. The study of these archives and their documents is still ongoing and of great importance for understanding the ancient Babylonian society. In Archives in Context we want to make you part of our research by exploring the Babylonian private archives in all its facets.
    Archives in Context is an outreach initiative of the ERC Project Persia and Babylonia: Creating a New Context for Understanding the Emergence of the First World Empire led by Caroline Waerzeggers.
