Z Christian nation and to establish himself more firmly as ruler, he sent Abbot Astricus to Rome to petition Pope Sylvester II for the royal dignity and the power to establish episcopal sees. The pope acceded to his wishes and, in addition, presented him with a royal crown with which he was crowned at Gran on 17 August, 1001 (see HUNGARY. History ). He founded a monastery in Jerusalem and hospices for pilgrims at Rome, Ravenna, and Constantinople. He was a personal friend of St. Bruno of Querfurt and corresponded with Abbot St. Odilo of Cluny. The last years of his life were embittered by sickness and family troubles. When on 2 September, 1031, his only son, St. Emeric, lost his life on a bear hunt, his cherished hope of transferring the reins of government into the hands of a pious Christian prince were shattered. During his lifetime a quarrel arose among his various nephews concerning the right of succession, and some of them even took part in a conspiracy against his life. He was buried beside his son at Stuhlweissenburg, and both were canonized together in 1083. His feast is on 2 September, but in Hungary his chief festival is observed on 20 August, the day on which his relics were transferred to Buda. His incorrupt right hand is treasured as the most sacred
Extractions: During the fourth century, the period when Gregory of Nyssa had flourished, there existed a liturgical void between the feasts of Pentecost and Christmas. This lengthy interval extending from spring until the beginning of winter served to form a substantial part of the year . With this in mind, we can better appreciate the significance of Gregory's liturgical homilies, especially the relationship between his Homily on the Birth of Christ and his two orations on St. Stephen whose feast day follows immediately. Jean Danielou has speculated that the Christmas homily was delivered on approximately 25 December 386, the same year as his two homilies on St. Stephen . Gregory of Nyssa begins his first homily on the protomartyr or the first person who was recorded to have shed his blood for the new faith by positing him as an imitator ( mimetes , J.75.6) of Jesus Christ whose birthday is immediately preceded by one day. Gregory asks how these two feasts are related and adds the well known Platonic image of a cave as representative of this life which is taken from the Republic : "One [Christ] accepted the cave of this life for us, and the other [Stephen] left it for him" (J.75.7-8). Thus at once Stephen, who is venerated as a martyr, sets the tone for all future Christian testimony by freely offering his life. Because Stephen is the first Christian martyr, Gregory perceives him as having caused great awe and wonder among the angels or transcendent powers who marvelled at the contest of a frail human being. The bishop of Nyssa employs a favorite image here, that of an athlete, who contends not so much against human power but against demonic forces. This becomes evident later in the first sermon as the following words reveal:

Extractions: Stephen Crane was the youngest of fourteen children. His father was a strict Methodist minister, who died in 1880, leaving his devout, strong mother to raise the rest of the family. Crane lasted through preparatory school, but spent less than two years in college, excelling at Syracuse in baseball and partying far more than academics. After leaving school, he went to live in New York, doing freelance writing and working on his first book Maggie, A Girl of the Streets . His times in New York City were split between his apartment in the Bowery slum in Manhattan and well-off family in the nearby town of Port Jervis. Crane published Maggie , a study of an innocent slum girl and her downfall in a world of prostitution and abuse, in 1893 at his own expense. It was especially scandalous for the times, and sold few copies. It did attract the attention of other critics and writers, most notably William Dean Howells, who helped Crane receive backing for his next project, The Red Badge of Courage Published in 1895

Extractions: Photo from: University of Michigan Windows to the Universe Perhaps more than any other contemporary American scientist Stephen Jay Gould has presented the modes, implications, benefits, and shortcomings of science to a literate public. As an inventive and productive scholar he has shaped and participated in crucial debates of the biological and geological sciences, particularly with regard to the theory of evolution, the interpretation of fossil evidence, and the meaning of diversity and change in biology. As the readership for his nearly twenty books and hundreds of essays, reviews, and articles has grown he has become one of the most popular and well-known writers and lecturers on scientific topics. He has distinguished himself by elaborating his critique of contemporary evolutionary theory via an eclectic range of discourse, deriving inspiration from his personal reflections across an astonishing array of historical and humanistic disciplines, popular culture, and sports. Gould's empirical field studies have concentrated on fossil mollusks and snails found in Bermuda. His first major monographic work, Ontogeny and Phylogeny (1977), treated the theory of recapitulation in evolutionary biology. His second
Stephen Leacock Building and pictures of the building, located on the campus of McGill University. http://cac.mcgill.ca/campus/Buildings/Stephen_Leacock.html
Extractions: Stephen Leacock Building McGill Archives The Stephen Leacock Building was named after Stephen Leacock, a Professor of Economics from 1901 to 1944 and a well-known Canadian humorist and author. The edifice was built in 1965 by ARCOP, a firm contributed to by Affleck, Desbarats, Dimokopoulos, Lebensold, and Sise who were also responsible for the University Centre . At this time there were many building projects in progress all over the campus because of the dramatic climb in the enrolment of the University. Many of the faculties and departments had expanded beyond their spaces and needed room to grow, including the Faculty of Arts which had outgrown its ancestral home, the Arts Building. The area chosen for the new building had been, until then, the site of the McGill Observatory and of half of the Presbyterian College , whose remaining half is currently called Morrice Hall. The Leacock Building was originally planned as two towers, the second, which was found to be unnecessary and was never built, would have taken over the site of the remaining half of Morrice Hall, a charming Collegiate Gothic style structure. Leacock is a ten-storey concrete structure that houses, on its lower three floors, twenty-four lecture rooms ranging in capacity from 30 seats to 200, not including the massive lecture room on the first floor which seats 650 students at a time. This large auditorium has no windows in it, to provide fewer distractions, and is half underground with the seats sloping in the same direction as the natural hillside. Since all of the lecture rooms are on the lower floors, they are easily accessible to students and keep the traffic to a minimum in the upper tower which is reserved for 125 offices served by elevators. The lower floors may be entered from the third floor terrace to the west, the second floor terrace to the south, the first floor street level, or from the Arts Building which is connected to Leacock from the east by a glass-walled corridor. Stairs, similar to those on the interior, connect the levels of the terrace.

Stephen Benét Biography and selected works. http://www.kirjasto.sci.fi/sbenet.htm
Extractions: (from John Brown's Body Stephen Vincent Benét was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, into an army family. His father was Colonel J. Walker Benét. Frances Neill (Rose) Benét, Stephen's mother, was a descendant of an old Kentucky military family. Because his father was an avid reader, who especially loved poetry, Benét grew up in home, where literature was valued and enjoyed. Most of his boyhood Benét spent in Benicia, California. At the age about ten, Benét was sent to the Hitchcock Military Academy. However, he preferred reading to athletics and did not like the insensitivity of his school mates. Later wrote about his experiences in his poem about Shelley at Eton: " His pile of books scattered about his feet, / Stood Shelley while two others held him fast, / And the clods beat upon him." Benet completed his secondary education in Augusta, Georgia, where his father had been assigned a new post. Benét's first book, FIVE MEN AND POMPEY (1915), a collection of verse, was published when he was 17. It showed the romantic influence of William Morris as well as the influence of modern realism.
