The Nachzehrer would be a special kind of vampire who lives in a constant state of numbness in his grave, without understanding what is happening around and just like a child chewing spasmodically in her dress. The theologian Philip Rohr's, in his presentation at the University of Leipzig, "Historico-Dissertatio Philosophica de Masticatione Mortuorum" also known as "chewing Mortuorum" (1679), describes in detail the behavior of these dead. The theologian describes and justifies the phenomenon of vampirism as demonic possession and considers unjustified any violent action against them. An action against a corpse is inevitably against God and therefore must be condemned.< Less

The Nachzehrer would be a special kind of vampire who lives in a constant state of numbness in his grave, without understanding what is happening around and just like a child, chewing spasmodically his dress. Martin Böhm wrote in 1601:"We have seen in times of the plague how dead people especially women - who have died of the plague make smacking noises in their graves, like a pig that is eating, and that while this smacking is going on the plague becomes much worse, usually in the same family, and people die one after the other."

Ebola was discovered in 1976 in Zaire and Sudan. The virus called Ebola takes its name from the Ebola River, which flows into Zaire, where the virus was isolated for the first time. Peter Pilot MD,... More > was the first to identify ebola virus, from an epidemic in Yambuku, in a village along the banks of the river ebola, in the northern Congo, then Zaire. There are 4 variants of the virus whose differences are due to the type of host they infect: Ebola Zaire, Ebola Sudan, Ebola Tai, that cause disease in humans and primates, and Ebola Reston, which causes the disease only in primates. During the past 30 years have been recorded periodic epidemics of Ebola in central Africa particularly in Gabon, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo-Brazzaville, Sudan and Angola. Probably the virus, present in the bats, was manifested later in the great apes and finally in humans. It is transmitted among humans through contact with bodily fluids (blood, vomit, diarrhea ...), which may occur during the care of the sick.< Less

Nell'A.D. 1589 ad Helmstedt, in Bassa Sassonia, Giordano Bruno scrive il libro La Medicina Lulliana, completato nella primavera del 1590. L'opera di Bruno ha come premessa l'assunto che... More > il benessere/malattia è determinato dall'equilibrio di quattro elementi, il fuoco, l'aria, l'acqua e terra; è altresì determinato dal loro modo di manifestarsi: umido/caldo, caldo/secco, secco/freddo, freddo/umido. Avvalendosi degli studi di astrologia applicati all'arte medica, Giordano Bruno intese dare al mondo, con la sua opera originale, una visione della natura interamente viva e densa di magia e spiritualità. Dal momento che le forze astrali sono in armonia con la natura umana, Bruno volle trovare in esse una possibilità terapeutica, sviluppando una particolare medicina astrale, capace di curare il corpo dell'uomo attraverso la sua mente.< Less
Eresia e Scienza nel Medioevo By Prof. Camillo O. Di Cicco
eBook (PDF): $8.99
Il medico filosofo Giulio Cesare Vanini nasce a Taurisano, vicino Lecce, nel 1585. Autore di numerosi testi ancora oggi di notevole valore, nel 1615 scrive in Francia, a Lione: “Amphitheatrum... More > aeternae Providentiae Divino-Magicum” (L’anfiteatro divino magico dell’eterna Provvidenza), e nel 1616 pubblica a Parigi la sua opera più importante “De Admirandis naturae reginae deaeque mortalium arcanis”, uno studio pregevole della natura, articolato in quattro volumi e 59 dialoghi. In un dialogo ritroviamo la dotta interlocuzione tra Alessandro e Giulio Cesare in merito ai principi che regolano la natura. Nei suoi studi Vanini, come altri medici, negava l'immortalità dell'anima e l'esistenza dei miracoli che attribuiva alla paura creata nell'uomo dalle religioni. Pertanto, arrestato e condannato per eresia dall'Inquisizione, subì il taglio della lingua e, dopo strangolamento, venne bruciato sul rogo in Francia, a Tolosa, il l9 febbraio 1619. Aveva 34 anni.< Less

More > lasciate esposte al pubblico. Il 2 agosto 1685 Vincenzo Scatolari viene condannato alla decapitazione per aver svolto l'attività di giornalista senza autorizzazione della Santa Madre Chiesa. Per comprendere il rapporto tra la Chiesa e la stampa, che ai suoi albori cercava con indicibile difficoltà di diffondere la conoscenza delle nuove idee, inconcepibile in periodo medievale, si riportano le parole del frate domenicano Filippo Strada, calligrafo, insegnante e predicatore, che così si scagliava contro il libro stampato: “Se migliara de anni el mondo ha triumphato de molti dotti homini senza libro stampato, hora gentaia che ignorano talliano te ensegneranno il parlare tulliano?”.< Less
