The destiny of man continues to exist even after the physical death of some individuals
The legendary leader of the Britons, who lived in the V-VI century, defeated the invaders (Saxons) and became the central character of legends, tales, epics and hero of novels about knights without fear and without reproach. This he assembled knights of the Round Table, went treasure of the Holy Grail and became the prototype of the knight dreamed of young beauties. But his posthumous wanderings can not cause envy. His ashes (and perhaps remains of a person) have repeatedly disturbed over the centuries, while he is not with us.
The story began in 1191, when the monks of Glastonbury Abbey claimed to have discovered in the land of the monastery remains of King Arthur. The whole process of exhumation and wrote a detailed description of a monk, and in 1193 the documents handed over personal story of King Arthur Geoffrey of Monmouth. He described the remains: "In the hollowed trunk of oak stored inside the bones of two people: Guinevere (the second wife of King), and men appear to be the most Arthur. Opened up a lead cross with his name. "
The remains have been disturbed once again in 1278 by King Edward I, who wished solemnly reburied in a marble tomb of Arthur corresponding royal title. But in 1539, the abbey took King Henry VIII (reformer and advocate of Protestantism). And the grave of King Arthur's ruined, and now can not understand — who. Poor King Arthur, and the rest he is not dreaming.
JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH
The brilliant German composer and organist, a representative of the Baroque died in 1750. He was buried in the church of St. John (he served there) in Leipzig. But forgot to set a headstone.
In 1894, the church decided to expand the cemetery and accidentally stumbled upon an unmarked grave. And they find out who the remains belong to the same unknown deceased. And decided: "Once a church burial Bach book indicates, we assume that the remains — a composer." Choosing a gravedigger was great: found several unknown graves and corpses. And for the most poor and rough churchyard grounds workers found the remains and the grave of the greatest composer. In the church book and wrote: "Danae grave is located in the second or in the third section of the church graveyard, most likely, but maybe she is in the first section."
After studying the skeleton, cemetery workers have come to the following conclusion: "With high probability it can be said that these remains belong to Johann Sebastian Bach. The body of the late genius reburied with full honors, setting a plate on the grave. "
But during the Second World War the cemetery disturbed by bombs and shells, cemetery church was destroyed, and because dust Bach moved again (reburied), but now the cemetery of St. Thomas, where he rests today.
Franz Joseph Haydn
Eminent Austrian composer, a representative of the Viennese classical school, one of the founders of musical genres — symphonies and string quartet — died in 1809 at the height of the Napoleonic wars.
At the time, it was popular to a new fad — enthusiasm phrenology — the science of the relationship of the human psyche and the structure of the surface of the skull. Apparently, falling under the spell of new-fashioned course, a certain Johan Peters bribed inspector churchyard, stolen from the tomb of Haydn's head to measure it. Fortunately Peters, "Haydn's skull was perfectly composed." Showed even "bending genius."
Haydn's skull to get Peters was extremely difficult, but the return of his "rightful owner" and does not seem possible. And then at the end of 1809 Peters handed skull composer Joseph Rosenbaum, who worked formerly Haydn. Haydn's skull acquisition insanely happy wife Rosenbaum. And during solo concerts in her house she made solemn Haydn shows a skull in a special glass case and accompanied by his wonderful music.
This barbaric fact indignant Prince Esterhazy, who worked Joseph Rosenbaum. And the prince called Rosenbaum to account, and he had to hand over the skull genius Prince Esterhazy.
Since then, private membership Franz Joseph Haydn was punctually change hands. Only in 1954 (after 145 years), the body and skull composer reunited.
Eminent explorer and discoverer of the land, including the Americas (1451-1506), Columbus did not stop traveling even after his death. He died in 1506 in Spain and was buried in the city of Valladolid. But then his remains were transferred to the monastery of Seville. And in 1542, the remains of a pioneer on the orders of the Emperor Charles V to make the next trip to Santo Domingo — the capital of Hispaniola, Columbus named the island of Haiti. But over time, Espanyol came under the jurisdiction of France. And the remains of Columbus made another voyage. At this time, the remains were transferred to the island of Cuba, in the cathedral of his capital Havana.
But in 1898, Cuba became an independent state for the first time, and the bones of Columbus decided to send by ship across the ocean back to St. Mary's Cathedral in Seville. By the way, even then there were skeptics who claimed that dust transported to Columbus is distantly related. It turned out that in 1877 the cathedral in Santo Domingo was closed for repairs, and construction workers discovered under the floor of the main hall of the temple grave with a tombstone signed by Christopher Columbus.
There is a widespread opinion that Columbus' ashes mixed with the ashes of his son Diego, which at one time were buried next to the remains of his father.
Now experts decide where and how Columbus are scattered in different continents of the world, while at the same time they find out who he was by birth. This is another mystery connected with the origin of Columbus. According to popular belief, he was born in Genoa in a simple weaver family.
Another version — Spanish, supported by a group of American historians — Columbus was a native of the island of Mallorca. He stubbornly conceal this fact, as a young man was once the captain corsair ship, and fought against the King of Aragon, father of the future founder of the Spanish State Ferdinand. But in Mallorca there is a big community, "kriptoiudeev" — Jewish-keeping Christianity (their descendants have survived to this day) — this might explain the "Jewish Motifs" in the writings of Columbus. To confirm this hypothesis, it is reported that the Italian language in his letters Columbus never used.
By the way, stylistic analysis of written text, its language and handwriting suggests that Columbus was a man of well-educated, and not a commoner who mistakenly discovered the New World.
