Кстати об экзаменах (http://mme-n-b.livejournal.com/133381.html)

Yesterday I graded European History 1450-1789. I bet none of you gentlebeings knew that:

Baroque is just like Renaissance, but with inflation. It's also a type of lifestyle. It's also an architect, who was hired by the Medicis in early 1500s and successfully completed the architectural feat of the dome.

The Medici family consisted of three high-ranking Popes. They got Machiavelli beheaded for going against their religious ways.

Sola fide is a basis for the Spanish Inquisition.

Cesare Borgia was the author of Don Quixote, which demonstrated the ideas of chivalry in the 16th century. He's also an extremely influential writer who contributed to reviving humanist/republican views.

Giordano Bruno was a competitive sculpture (sic) during Italian Renaissance. His favorite competitor was Bernini. He practiced his technique on a children's orphanage. This intellectual, artist and sculptor was employed by the Medicis.
