1464Re: Hungarian Resource
- Jan 1, 2000The Gesta? Wow. . .lucky. I'd love to see it for the illumination.
It's an interesting document, but as a little word of warning don't take it
as a difinitve source on some things, like the events of the Magyar Conquest
in 895. The author took the events of his own day and combined it with
accounts he collected of the Conquest era that had been passed down as word
of mouth. Unfortunately that makes it hard to tell fact from fiction and
even more unfortunately it has actually fed some fallacies that have made it
into nationalist rhetoric.
who is still jealous. . .its that person who wrote a thesis on nationalism
that has to add the warning. . .
