ALSO THIS DAY:

In 1623 in Vitebsk was killed Uniate Archbishop Josaphat Kuncevich (b. 1580). Kuncevich became a symbol and principal conductor of the Brest Church Union, to be unite Belarusians Orthodox and Catholics in a single church. In Vitebsk, Archbishop met stiff resistance from the Orthodox. The excited crowd not only killed Kuntsevych, but, as evidenced court documents, long mocked his body. In 1867, Jehoshaphat Kuncevich was declared a saint.

In 1840 was born sculptor Auguste Rodin French (d. 1917).

In 1915 he was born and semietyk French post-structuralist Roland Barthes (d. 1980).

In 1920, Andrew was born Makayonok Belarusian playwright (d. 1982).

There is a reason:

Day of the Constitution of Azerbaijan.

MINUS 365:

A year ago on the site of Liberty: "Message Medvedev: no word on Belarus."

Quote to remember:

"In the act of reading constantly replacing each other two systems: a look at the words — the language, look at the meaning — is literature."

Roland Barthes
