Things you learn from an Icelandic phonebook

The name Baldwin (Baldvin) is still quite popular there and it also has a female version Baldvina, not so widely used, but it does exist.

New Documentary on Jacob's Ford

National Geographic has made a new hour long documentary concerning Jacob's Ford. I'm not a big fan of their portrayal of Baldwin (looking completely healthy and not blonde though making him look properly young is a plus) but it seems pretty decent otherwise. I came in about fifteen minutes after it started so I have not actually watched it in full but you can get snippets from the NatGeo website as well as production notes: channel.nationalgeographic.com/episode/last-stand-of-the-templars-5081/Videos#tab-Videos/09886_00

The showing schedule if you're in the USA says that it'll be on the NatGeo channel April 5th at 1am and 7pm as well as 4/6 at 2am (all times EST).

I still feel the Timewatch episode treats the topic best but since it is never on (at least here in the States), this is fine enough. It is a very American documentary so it feels a bit manic and their love of the handheld camera effect is a bit annoying but if you didn't mind Kingdom of Heaven then this is quite alright.

Jerusalem Kings

Sorry, this scheme is in Russian, but it helped me once. All kings and queens are shown with their relatives. Our beloved one is under number 8 - Балдуин IV :)Сибилла - Sibylla. Maybe it will be of any interest to you

"Baudolino"

My greetings, dear baldwinites!
So I'd like to post here some extracts from "Baudolino" by Umberto Eco. These extracts depict how one's body can become one's personal prison. Of course this novel is such a grotesque mixture of history and fantasy, and the character's suffering in seclusion is caused by his position as well as by his health state. But still it creates such a picture that makes one think over the horror of leaving in slow disfiguring agony. So here it is.

“They entered. The great circular hall was empty, except for some cupboards around the throne. The throne was in the center, it was of dark wood, surmounted by a baldachin. On the throne sat a human form, wrapped in a dark garment, his head covered by a turban, with a veil that fell over his face. His feet were shod in dark slippers, and dark also were the gloves that covered his hands, so nothing could be seen of the seated figure's features.

Does anyone know, online, where I can download a screenplay from Kingdom of Heavan? I am teaching a couple of drama classes this week and next and it would be great to tie the drama in with some other work that the students are doing.

St. George hospital

So, I had a roundtrip in Scandinavia in the summer. It included St. George hospital in Bergen, Norway, which was a leprosarium from the middle ages until 1946, when the last patients died (one of them was a lady of 90-something years. Out of these 90-sg years, she spent around 50 in a leprosarium. Just think about it!) Honestly, I would make it compulsory warmly recommend to every baldwinite to visit such a place at least once. It is shocking (room no. 1 I call the shock-room, with photos of the worst cases of lepromatous leprosy on display, it makes you want to run away screaming) but it is very much an eye-opener, very informative & educative. Very useful for those of us, writing any kind of fiction with Baldwin in it.
Photos I took (no shocking ones fret not; it didn't feel right to make shots of those photos) with some explanations
1. - In the Middle Ages, St. George's was a hospital for lepers. The present-day buildings date back to the beginning of the 18th century. Norwegian doctors - and in particular Armauer Hansen who gave his name to another term for leprosy "Hansen's disease" - are well-known for their struggle against leprosy. The museum exhibits the Bergen Collection of the History of Medicine and a presentation of Norway's contribution to leprosy research.
St. Jorgen's Church is a part of this leprosy museum.
2. Main building
3. St. Jorgen's hospital was one of the several leprosy hospitals in Bergen. Leprosy was widespread and much feared, and Western Norway was badly struck by the disease in the 19th c.
4. From the 1st floor
5. St. Jorgen's church, 18th c. There is something deeply disheartening about this church, esp if you imagine the congregation..
6. View of the altar
7. One tiny little cubicle, shared by two patients. The sick often lived many years of their lives at the hospital. The bedrooms were small, approx 2x2m. At times with many patients living in the hospital, 2 or 3 people shared the small room.
8. Hansen's office. Hansen, though today celebrated for his discovery, was disgraced in his own time for a very serious breach of medical ethics. Hansen attempted to infect at least one woman with the disease without her consent, although he was not succesful. Hansen was taken to court and lost his position at the hospital.
9. The kitchen and the living rooms were spacious.
10. Hearth
11. Kitchen still
12. From the 1850s through the 1900s Bergen, Norway had three separate leper houses, and was internationally known as a place where lepers would be received and cared for and was the largest concentration of lepers in all of Europe.
13. The courtyard
14. The entrygate

There were bits and pieces of the writings of the patients exhibited; letters, diaries, poems. Depressing, but edifying. The visit to this museum haunted me for a long time.

Mont G?

My dear baldwinite girls, Mont Gisard is swiftly approaching, and before we realize, Nov 25 will be right here for us to celebrate in Jerusalem/Tel Gezer, but for various reasons it'd be nice to know, who is coming for sure, I mean 100%, 'bought-the-airticket-already'sure. So..?

King Baldwin Costume

 Yes I'm finally making it!

I've bought the fabric and I've started on the  muslin.  I've never constructed something this involved so I am excited and nervous! I'm using a cassock pattern  because it has the straight front, a mandarin collar and is the right length. Also the back is fitted so it will look better on me:)  I've just finished the back  of the muslin  I'll probably wait until tomorrow or Sunday to work on the front.  I've got to got to work in about an hour and half  and I have to work early tomorrow.  (I wish I didn't so i could keep going!)



This is the fabric I'm using for the main body  of the costume , I'm making the first costume we see Baldwin in

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Coronation of King Baldwin IV (Part II)

The royal procession left the church of the Holy Sepulchre and made its way through the narrow streets to the 'Temple of the Lord' where the king placed his crown on the altar, symbolically commemorating the presentation of Jesus to Simeon in the Temple. From here the royal suite made its way to the 'Temple of Solomon' (the al-Aqsa Mosque) for the coronation banquet, which may have been held there, since the 'Temple of Solomon' had once served as a royal palace.
The banquet was served as a special duty and privilege, by the burgesses of Jerusalem, under the direction of the seneschal. The dishes and drinking-cups used became his property. The king's horse with its sumptuous trappings became the property of the constable, and his cup that of the chamberlain. During this banquet the sceptre was held before the king.
Each new reign was inaugurated by a meeting of the Haute Cour. The links of feudal vassalage, which, according to law, had lapsed with the disappearance of one of the contracting parties (in this case the deceased king), were re-established by taking an oath of fealty and by the act of homage. The actual beginning of a reign was marked by the feudal oaths taken after the coronation. The nobles, ordered by rank, knelt before the king, swearing homage and fealty. Each noble declared himself to be the king's man and was confirmed in the possession of his fief. Then followed the actual oath of fealty.
