Why you should watch KingsThough cancelled after only one season (fuck you, NBC), Kings remains one of the most quality shows I have ever seen. Of particular note is Sebastian Stan’s character, Jack Benjamin, the crown prince of Gilboa that keeps himself closeted to please his father (his father explains that to be a successful king, Jack cannot be ‘what God made him’). He cries a lot, and it’s beautiful. I really cannot say enough good things about this show.

Amazing manuscript in the shape of the fleur-de-lis. It is a Book of Hours for the use of Rome, made circa 1555.

(Amiens, Bibliothèque municipale, fonds L’Escalopier 022)

Not your everyday medieval book. I have never seen one like this before. Wonderful display of craftsmanship.

"She [Gaia the Earth] lay with Ouranos (Sky) and bare deep-swirling Okeanos, Koios and Krios and Hyperion and Iapetos, Theia and Rhea, Themis and Mnemosyne and gold-crowned Phoibe and lovely Tethys. After them was born Kronos the wily, youngest and most terrible of her children." - Hesiod
