Adam Moleyns

Adam Moleyns was an English bishop, royal administrator and diplomat. During the minority of Henry VI of England, he was clerk of the ruling council of the Regent. Moleyns had the living of Kempsey from 1433, he was Dean of Salisbury from 1441 to 1446. He became bishop of Chichester on 24 September 1445, was consecrated bishop on 6 February 1446, he was Lord Privy Seal in 1444, at the same time. In 1447 he had permission to fortify the manor house at Bexhill. An active partisan of the unpopular William de la Pole, Duke of Suffolk, Moleyns was lynched in Portsmouth by discontented unpaid soldiers on 9 January 1450. Moleyns was a correspondent of the humanist Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini, Pope Pius II, who complimented him in a letter of 29 May 1444: "And I congratulate you and England, since you care for the art of rhetoric". In 1926 George Warner attributed The Libelle of Englyshe Polycye to Moleyns but this theory was based on Warner's mistaken identification of Adam Moleyns as a member of the family’s Lancashire branch.

The theory of Moleyns' authorship of the poem is now rejected by scholars. Fryde, E. B.. Handbook of British Chronology. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. ISBN 0-521-56350-X. Smith, Bill.

Nizas, Hérault

Nizas is a commune in the Hérault department in the Occitanie region in southern France. It lies near the town Pézenas. Like many places in Languedoc-Roussillon, the village of Nizas has been continuously inhabited since prehistoric time; the vicinity of the village is rich in archeological sites, such as proto-anthropomorphic stele of Pla Méjo and la grotte de l'Homme Mort, both from the Chalcolithic period. The origins of the village of Nizas are Roman, although there are remains from Greek amphora manufacturing processes in neighbouring villages. There are evidences of Roman foundations from the 1st century AD under the early 18th-century church in the center of the village; the name Nizas derived from the name of a Latin nobleman Nisius whose domain is buried under the modern village. Nizas is mentioned in the Carolingian texts as a villa. Following the collapse of the Carolingian empire, Occitanian peasantry who, prior to 950 lived at dispersed farms, regrouped around castles of local nobles for protection.

Thus, the fortified villages or "castra" in Occitan, appeared between 950 and 1050. "Castro Nizacio" is mentioned in time of crusades. The circulade is well preserved in the historical center of the village called quartier de la Villette. At the end of the 16th century, the Carrion family acquired the fief from the bishop of Lodève and adopted the name Carrion-Nizas; that was Jean-Raymond de Carrion-Nizas, master-builder of walls of Pézenas, who built or re-built the current castle. The Carrion-Nizas family remained the lords of the village until the French Revolution; the tomb of the Carrion-Nizas family is still in the church chancel. Archival materials, such as old maps and photographs, census of population and parochial records going as far back as the early 17th century may be found on line at Archives départementales de l'Hérault; the inhabitants of Nizas are called Nizaçois. The present village dates from the 10th century with extensive building in the 12th and 13th centuries giving the characteristic shape of a circulade.

This is tight spiral configuration with the outer buildings having thick stone walls as a defence. Since 2004, the historical district quartier; the information below is based on the tourists signs. The tower is located in the oldest part of Nizas; this four-sided tower with walls 1.70m thick was surrounded by an enclosure which served as a farmyard to the old chateau. From the 14th century onwards, the center of the village spread to the west of the original center around a new square – the Place du Griffe. In this square, in the center of a fountain, there is a statue of Marianne, more mythological than republican, she is the Greek-Roman goddess Artemis-Diana or Belissena, her counterpart in Celt Iberian cosmos of divinities. She isn't wearing phrygian cap, but a star on her forehead, suggesting the guiding light to lead people from the darkness of ignorance; the cornerstone of the present church was consecrated on January 13, 1705 on the site of the former chapel of Saints Perpetue and Felicity, demolished in 1703.

The construction work was completed by August 1708. Saint Perpetue relics are still objects of veneration; the church is open for worship and visits only during the time of service.
