Europa Sun Issue 4: April 2018

 Europa Sun Issue 4 is finally here! We have a fantastic issue thanks to the remarkable writers who contributed!
This issue is possibly more diverse in its offerings than past editions thanks to the presence of subjects such as European prehistory and, on the other end of the historical timeline, the genre of rock 'n roll. Prehistoric humans who became the earliest Europeans are explored in detail in relation to the Campanian Fire event (a massive volcanic explosion that changed the landscape of Europe). And we look at how the musical genre of rock n' roll, despite criticisms, very much channeled the soul of the European musician.

In addition, you will find our typical cross section of European culture from the ancient world through the Middle Ages and into more recent history. We cover little known cultures with another piece on the pre-Roman Lusitanian tribe of Iberia. Ancient Greece makes an appearance with a discussion on the philosopher-playwright, Aristophanes, and how his concerns for the culture of his own day are relevant for us today.

We move into the Middle Ages with an exploration of the figure of Mary Magdalene and another on the famous English king, Richard III. In both instances we find that each figure has been misrepresented unfairly in the public mind. 

Our cover art was designed by Bo Isanov in the "Fash-wave" style. We take a closer look at his art and the inspiration behind it. And, as always, there is much more in the pages that explore, discuss, and celebrate European cultural heritage!

Barbara W. Tuchman—the acclaimed author of the Pulitzer Prize–winning classic The Guns of August—once again marshals her gift for character, history, and sparkling prose to compose an astonishing portrait of medieval Europe.
The fourteenth century reflects two contradictory images: on the one hand, a glittering age of crusades, cathedrals, and chivalry; on the other, a world plunged into chaos and spiritual agony. In this revelatory work, Barbara W. Tuchman examines not only the great rhythms of history but the grain and texture of domestic life: what childhood was like; what marriage meant; how money, taxes, and war dominated the lives of serf, noble, and clergy alike. Granting her subjects their loyalties, treacheries, and guilty passions, Tuchman re-creates the lives of proud cardinals, university scholars, grocers and clerks, saints and mystics, lawyers and mercenaries, and, dominating all, the knight—in all his valor and “furious follies,” a “terrible worm in an iron cocoon.”
Praise for A Distant Mirror
“Beautifully written, careful and thorough in its scholarship . . . What Ms. Tuchman does superbly is to tell how it was. . . . No one has ever done this better.”—The New York Review of Books
“A beautiful, extraordinary book . . . Tuchman at the top of her powers . . . She has done nothing finer.”—The Wall Street Journal
“Wise, witty, and wonderful . . . a great book, in a great historical tradition.”—Commentary

NOTE: This edition does not include color images.
 The second issue of Europa Sun has landed with a bang! While we were very proud of our debut, we dare say that Issue 2 might have even superseded it! This issue bursts with impassioned love for European ethnic-heritage and makes no bones about it. Our writers share their love of the history and culture of their heritage in cogent and illuminating ways. We explore history both ancient and more recent. Our authors elucidate on issues we face as a culture today while placing it in historical context. We discuss faith from multiple perspectives as to how it pertains to our cultural identity. This issue includes both Christian and pagan writers, including one writer who explains why as a Christian he gets so much value from European native mythos. Another writer explains how Christianity is intertwined with ethnic nationalism for Eastern Europeans. The editor discusses the unbroken survival of European Native Faith, while yet another contributor discusses the shared history and need to come together between Christians and European pagans as we face a common enemy who threatens the culture we both love. But, this issue is not overpowered by religious discussion! We've got explorers, warriors, kings, and lost tribes! In fact, it wasn't intentional, but this issue is jam packed with masculine energy! While, this was not the editor's planned intention, she is not sorry for its happenstance. In a world where Marxist distortion pervades our media and education today and perverts the mainstream view of history, Europa Sun is more than happy to stand up for white Western men and boldly assert that we have a history to be PROUD of!
