Thank you Rob ! 🙏❤️

Here is something very interesting.

I shared with you few days ago,in another topic,  my winter's tale 😄 with Coriolanus.

I told you I had read something about the use of the word "Gulfe" for "Belly" by Shakespeare in Coriolanus suggesting that he was familiar with the work of William Camden.

This is "The belly fable" in William Camden's Remains Concerning Britain, 1605

I think that Francis Bacon had also another "Gulfe" in mind 😉

Virgil's Aeneid -Book III

I'm a little slow on catching up. But the belly (52 Simple and 104 Kaye) fable link puts this in my face.

Remaines is a Bacon word as well.

I am looking in from outside the Tent right now, but will try to enter in a bit, depending on everything else! 😉

Love the hand-carved fonts and wonky typesetting as well as the acrostics!

Haven't watched the whole thing through but it seems to be a genuine attempt to bring Titus Andronicus to modern (1999) audiences, with fine performances, great film-craft and what seems to be a fairly faithful rendering of the text. It runs for just over two hours.

(Started this reply last night.)

Lesson for we who seek answers in today's world...

First time reading today's posts, after reading my work emails to make sure I had a break, hoping to kick back a while, I scanned the newer posts and saw all the great stuff, and clicked a link by Yann.

After I wrapped up a few other things I came back and the link was open and the images took me in. I saw a Bacon and replied without much thought.

Second time through, with fewer distractions, more focused, I did not just read but listened and explored.

Occasionally it may take a few times reading and understanding something shared with another before they are able to even pay attention. One time is OK. Twice better. Three, Four, or Five times? That's where the good stuff happens! LOL

I'd delete my previous "First" read reply as it is embarrassing and shallow. But I'll leave it up. 😉

What verse is this from your post Yann? The Google book didn't have page numbers I could find, verse numbers either. The text version should have the verse number?

Leads me here:

https://quod.lib.umich.edu/e/eebo/A02823.0001.001/1:29.8?rgn=div2;view=fulltext

"Consider then, that wheras other Ships are subiect to infinit dangers in the Seas, being tossed with tēpests and oftentimes cast away and swallowed vp in the waues, or dasht against the Rocks; for Ecclesiasticus sayth:*Who trauel on the seas, do recount their perils: either tyrannized by the winds, or falling into the hands of Pirats or running on the Sirtes or Scylla, and falling sometimes into the gulf of Charibdis, & lastly allured through the Sirens songs, to their owne destruction:"

One of the reasons I am Bacon distracted is that a fence came down in a storm a while ago and other circumstances where I am forced to be working on my yard and Garden. To share a major artistic/spiritual synchronicity would be too much info. LOL 🙂

I know it is a side path, yet they all connect again.

What does this mean?

THE ORDER OF THE
S Y M B O L S contained
in this GARDEN.
...

Whereunto are annexed
the PHOENIX, and the SWAN
without the Garden.

This was 1633.

Bacon was born of a Virgin. 😉

It's interesting that the Lincoln Memorial in Washington was built by Henry Bacon (1866-1924), perhaps a distant relative of F.B. https://www.thespruce.com/neoclassical-architecture-4802081

Hi Eric,

We had no idea that the Lincoln Memorial was built by a Bacon. 

It is a little known fact which is stated by Alexander Brown in his Genesis of the United States that a nineteenth century US President was a double descendant of the great Lord Bacon himself.

????

What does "double descendant of the great Lord Bacon" mean?

Not a blood line, right? Is there Bacon DNA alive and well??

A quick search for "He who sows thorns should not go barefoot" attributes the saying (or variations of it) as both a French and Italian proverb, but mainly as a saying coined by Benjamin Franklin. https://www.rightattitudes.com/2011/01/17/inspirational-quotations-359/

Hi Rob, 

It is well-documented that a number of US Presidents were members of the Speculative Freemasonry Brotherhood founded by Lord Bacon and as Brown points out it is from the Bacon family itself that 23rd President of the United States Benjamin Harrison descends: 'Lord Bacon was first cousin to Sir James Bacon, of Friston Hall, the ancestor of Colonel Nathaniel Bacon of the Virginia Council, of Nathaniel Bacon, the first Virginian rebel, and of Martha Bacon, from who the present President of the United States doubly descends.' 

Alexander Brown, Genesis of the United States, II, p. 882.
