  1. Hi A Phoenix We could set an exam paper for Alexa - 20 questions on the topic of the life of Sir Francis Bacon. I wonder what the mark would be.
  2. Hi Marvin Can you provide an example of a "conspiracy theorist" who claims to be a "Baconian"? Just curious. My only advice is to try and ignore idiots and focus on what turns you on.

Crazy Law Students At It Again https://www.british-history.ac.uk/old-new-london/vol2/pp553-576 In the same year, at Gray's Inn The Prince of Purpoole revel took place over several days and nights. The Prince of Purpoole's revel at Gray's Inn, in 1594, was a costly entertainment, and, in point of riotous excess, not inferior to any similar festivity in the time of Elizabeth. "On the 20th of December (St. Thomas's Eve) the prince (one Master Henry Holmes, a Norfolk gentleman) took up his quarters in the Great Hall of the Inn, and by the 3rd of January the grandeur and comicality of his proceedings had created so much talk throughout the town, that the Lord Treasurer, Burghley, the Earls of Cumberland, Essex, Shrewsbury, and Westmoreland; the Lords Buckhurst, Windsor, Sheffield, Compton; and a magnificent array of knights and ladies, visited Gray's Inn Hall on that day, and saw the masque which the revellers put upon the stage. After the masque there was a banquet, which was followed by a ball. On the day after, the prince, attended by eighty gentlemen of Gray's Inn and the Temple (each of them wearing a plume on his head), dined in state with the Lord Mayor and aldermen of the City, at Crosby Place. The frolic continued for many days more, the royal Purpoole, on one occasion, visiting Blackwall with a splendid retinue; on another, (Twelfth Night) receiving a gallant assembly of lords, ladies, and knights at his court in Gray's Inn; and on a third (Shrovetide) visiting the Queen herself, at Greenwich, when Her Majesty warmly applauded the masque set before her by the actors who were members of the prince's court. "So delighted was Elizabeth with the entertainment, that she graciously allowed the masquers to kiss her right hand, and loudly extolled Gray's Inn as 'an house she was much indebted to, for it did always study for some sport to present unto her;' whilst to the mock prince she showed her favour by placing in his hand the jewel (set with seventeen diamonds and fourteen rubies) which he had won by valour and skill in a tournament which formed part of the Shrovetide sports." When the Prince of Purpoole kept his court at Gray's Inn on this occasion, we are told that his champion rode into the dining-hall upon the back of a fiery charger, which, like the rider, was clothed in a panoply of steel.

  8. https://currentsciencedaily.com/stories/608600956-british-professor-takes-up-cause-of-francis-bacon-scientific-revolutionary Steve Fuller, a professor of social epistemology at the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom, UK, takes up this question with regard to English scientist Francis Bacon (1561-1626), a prominent intellectual of his time, whose work spanned politics, philosophy, and science. Fuller's essay appears in a special 2021 issue of Epistemology & Philosophy of Science devoted to Bacon (Vol. 58, Issue 3, 2021).
  9. Hi A Phoenix Since The Fraudulent Friedmans was published two years ago you have continued to expand and distil the historical intersection between Riverbank's original mission and the secret service agencies of the USA and UK. Finally, I think I'm beginning to see why you have been so relentless (and brilliant) in pursuing this taboo subject. It puts Francis Bacon and his authorship of the Shakespeare plays in a factual contemporary setting, rather than remaining confined to the province of "Baconian scholarship". It's a sort of reverse engineering, starting with a factual modern history account, working backwards in time to the authorship of the Shakespeare plays. I suspect that you realised long ago that Riverbank is another "entrance" point into the mystery of Francis Bacon. Calling all ambitious documentary film-makers...
  10. "Phoebe dislikes Bacon to protect herself from knowing the deeper truth"... well said Lawrence.
  11. Hi Rob I could only find these two for now... https://www.mediastorehouse.com.au/fine-art-finder/artists/european-school/le-vocabulaire-illustre-balle-de-laine-24726248.html https://www.mediastorehouse.com.au/fine-art-finder/artists/english-school/fall-wolsey-woolsack-published-hannah-humphrey-22932448.html Not much help, I'm afraid.

  13. Thanks for posting this scene. Interesting dialogue. Makes me want to watch the film.
  14. Hi Yann - it was just my flippant way of saying how brilliant you are. Fulcanelli was my guide to Notre Dame Cathedral when I had 10 days in Paris years ago. 🙂
