HAVE SCIENTISTS FOUND THE GRAVE OF CERVANTES?
Scientists say they have found the bones of Cervantes, his wife and others recorded as buried with him in Madrid’s Convent of the Barefoot Trinitarians. Cervantes has been dubbed the father of the modern novel for The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, published in two parts in 1605 and 1615. While location of his grave may or not be certain, the location of his books at the library is not. Click here to start your search of Falvey’s wide array of Cervantes resources.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“We know what we are, but know not what we may be.” – Hamlet by William Shakespeare
According to the publisher, Tradition, Performance, and Religion in Native America: Ancestral Ways, Modern Selves “explores a possible theoretical model for discussing the religious nature of urbanized Indians. Donald L. Fixico, (Shawnee, Sac & Fox, Muscogee Creek and Seminole), Professor of History, Arizona State University, comments on the book saying that “Indians have acculturated to live according to nature’s cycles and the circle of life, and [the author] Dennis Kelley brilliantly shows how this was done in the twentieth century and now.”
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
