身につけば何でもいい

 


 

今週のEconomistのルター特集はとても面白かったです。歴史的意義だけではなく、現在も途上国で影響力があることも学べました。5000語を超える長い記事ですがオススメです。若いルターが聖職者を目指すきっかけとなった出来事はアニメの最初にも触れられていますが、記事のキャッチで使われていました。

 

The stand

Protestantismshaped the development of the modern liberal West. What does its currentrevival mean for the developing world?

 

IN THE summer of 1974, a 26-year-old Mayan villager lay drunk in a town square in the Guatemalan highlands. Suddenly he heard a voice that was to change the course of his life and that of his home town, Almolonga. “I was lying there and I saw Jesus saying, ‘I love you and I want you to serve me’,” says the man, Mariano Riscajche. He dusted himself down, sobered up and soon started preaching, establishing a small Protestant congregation in a room not far from the town’s ancient Catholic church.


Half a millennium earlier, a 33-year-old German monk experienced something similar. At some point between 1513 and 1517, Martin Luther had a direct encounter with God and felt himself “to be reborn and to have gone through open doors into paradise”. His moment of being born again was private. The day on which he is said to have nailed a list of 95 complaints about ecclesiastical corruption to the church door in Wittenberg, Saxony—widely thought to have been October 31st 1517—made the private public and, soon, political. A mixture of princely patronage, personal stubbornness and chance led what could have ended up as just another minor protest in a remote corner of Europe to become a global movement.

 

Economistの記事内容についてはじっくり読んで整理しないと書けそうもないので余力があればということで(汗)

 

贖罪について触れている部分でアニメではclingsspringsで音の響きがいいように訳していました。前の記事の翻訳と比べてみるとこちらの方がずっと印象に残りやすいです。

 

箱の中へ投げ入れられた金がチャリンと鳴るや否や、魂が煉獄から飛び上がる

when a coin in the coffer clings, a soul from purgatory springs!

 

as soon as the money clinks into the money chest, the soul flies out of purgatory.

 

記事タイトルのThe standは下記ルターの有名な言葉も意識してのことでしょうが、アニメでは一番有名なHere I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.の部分が省かれていましたね。

 

I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.

 

ルターについていろいろ見ている時に見つけたのがこの句から名前をつけたHere I standというボードゲーム。評判のいいものらしいです。

 


 


はじめての「Here I Stand」(GMT)【1】

お勉強で学ぶのもいいですが、きっかけはこのようなゲームでもいいですよね。

 

ゲーム会社のサイトから)

Here I Stand: Wars of the Reformation 1517-1555 is the first game in over 25 years.to cover the political and religious conflicts of early 16th Century Europe. Few realize that the greatest feats of Martin Luther, Jean Calvin, Ignatius Loyola, Henry VIII, Charles V, Francis I, Suleiman the Magnificent, Ferdinand Magellan, Hernando Cortes, and Nicolaus Copernicus all fall within this narrow 40-year period of history. This game covers all the action of the period using a unique card-driven game system that models both the political and religious conflicts of the period on a single point-to-point map.

A magnificent historical game and simulation

投稿者Kenneth Winland2012430 - (Amazon.com)

This game is a charmer!

 

One of the best wargames and simulations out there for the early years of the reformation. VERY fun and involving with an INCREDIBLE level of historicity. Not too complex, but it is detailed with many steps. It is recommended for 3-6 players, but you REALLY want 5-6 players for this rascal. The time is estimated at 3-8 hours, and indeed it will take HOURS - not due to complexity, but due to ACTIVITY! A perfect game to play over a looooong day or over several afternoons.

 

One of the best historical games published in the last 40 years!

 

ようは英語ができるようになればいいんで、方法論はいろいろあってもいいと思います。
