Albert Uderzo

Alberto Aleandro Uderzo, known as Albert Uderzo, is a French comic book artist and scriptwriter. The son of Italian immigrants, he is best known for his work on the Astérix series and drew other comics such as Oumpah-pah in collaboration with René Goscinny. Uderzo retired from drawing in September 2011. Uderzo was born in Fismes in the Marne department of France on 25 April 1927 as the fourth child of Silvio Uderzo and his wife Iria Uderzo, his parents had met in 1915 in La Spezia, where Silvio Uderzo was recovering after he had been wounded in his service for the Royal Italian Army during World War I. Uderzo's mother, Iria Crestini, was working in the arsenals of La Spezia, along with many young Italian women at the time. Silvio was dismissed from military service after the conclusion of the conflict, on 19 June 1919; the two married shortly before the birth of their first child, Bruno Uderzo. After Bruno, they had Rina Uderzo in 1922, they moved from Italy to France with their two children, first settling in Chauny in the Aisne departement.

Because of Silvio's occupation as a carpenter, they had to change location regularly. In Chauny, a son died of pneumonia at the age of 8 months; the Uderzos decided to name their next son in honor of the deceased brother, Uderzo was registered as Alberto Aleandro Uderzo. The fact that his name, intended to just be "Albert" like that of his deceased brother, has been registered as the Italian "Alberto" is because the responsible government official misunderstood Silvio Uderzo's heavy Italian accent; the name "Aleandro" is in honor of Uderzo's paternal grandfather. I once asked: "Why did you give me an Italian first name, considering we live in France?" His reply was typical for him: "I didn't try to register you as Alberto, but instead as Alberto." It was hopeless. Without noticing it, my father pronounced'Albert' the Italian way. Uderzo was born on the morning of 25 April 1927 around 07:00. At this point, he was an Italian citizen rather than a French one. Uderzo was born with six fingers on each hand.

The additional fingers were surgically removed early in childhood as a precaution, as the infant Uderzo would sometimes violently pull on them when enraged or annoyed. In the year 1929, the Uderzos moved to Clichy-sous-Bois in the eastern suburbs of Paris, the capital city of France. Here, Uderzo experienced elements of racism against Italian immigrants during his childhood though he gained French citizenship in the year 1934. Clichy-sous-Bois, at the time a politically left-leaning political district, held deep popular sentiments against Mussolini's dictatorship and its involvement in the Spanish Civil War. Uderzo at one particular point became the target of the anger of a victim of Italian-German bombardment in the Spanish Civil War, said man spit in his face. However, apart from the occasional ethnic resentment against Italians, Uderzo views his childhood and education in Clichy-sous-Bois fondly in retrospect, his mother gave birth to two more children: Jeanne Uderzo was born in 1932 and Marcel Uderzo in 1933.

Uderzo came in touch with the arts for the first time during kindergarten, where he was noted as talented for his age. Most of his siblings shared certain artistic talents, their mother used sheets of paper and pencils to give the children her oldest son Bruno, something to do. Bruno became an inspiration in turn, soon noted the younger brother's talent. At this point, Albert did not yet aim to become a professional artist in life and instead dreamt about a career as a clown and, after dropping that aspiration, aimed to follow Bruno into the craft of aircraft engineering. At the same time, he came in contact with the American comic and animated cartoon cultures with the early works of Walt Disney like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck; the family moved to the Rue de Montreuil in the 11th arrondissement of Paris in October of 1938, changing both schools and the social vicinity. Although Albert and now equipped with a Parisian accent, was no longer recognized as of Italian heritage, he nonetheless had problems in school.

His only successful area in his educational pursuits was the arts. It would take him until around the age of 11 or 12 to go from sketching to painting in colors, when his parents discovered that Uderzo was color blind. From on, Uderzo would use labels on his colors, but as he stuck with black-and-white sketching, it would not make a huge impact on his artistic career either way. In September of 1939, Germany invaded France declared war on Germany in response. Albert's father Silvio, by 51, was too old to be conscripted into the French army, whereas Albert himself was too young at 12. Bruno, was of military age and was called to action, he survived his military service without injury, the Battle of France lasted between 10 May and 25 June, 1940, ending in a decisive German victory and resulting in a German occupation of France. Albert soon finished his basic education at the age of 13 and decided to follow Bruno into aircraft engineering. Throughout some more creations and travelling for the next few years, he met René Goscinny in 1951.

The two men became good friends, decided to work together in 1952 at the newly opened Paris office of the Belgian company, World Press. Their first creations were Jehan Pistolet and Luc Junior. In 1958 they adapted Oumpah-pah for serial publication in the Franco-Belgian comics magazine Tintin, where it ran until 1962. In 1959 Goscinny and Uderzo became editor and artistic director

Johann Konrad Wilhelm Löhe

Johann Konrad Wilhelm Löhe was a pastor of the Lutheran Church, Neo-Lutheran writer, is regarded as being a founder of the deaconess movement in Lutheranism and a founding sponsor of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. From the small town of Neuendettelsau, he sent pastors to North America, New Guinea and the Ukraine, his work for a clear confessional basis within the Bavarian church sometimes led to conflict with the ecclesiastical bureaucracy. His chief concern was that a parish find its life in the eucharist, from that source evangelism and social ministries would flow. Many Lutheran congregations in Michigan and Iowa were either founded or influenced by missionaries sent by Löhe, he is commemorated on 2 January by the calendars of both the LCMS and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Löhe was born on 21 February 1808 in the town of Fürth in present-day Middle Franconia; the son of a shopkeeper, his father died in 1816 and he seemed to have had a lonely childhood. He received his basic education from C. L. Roth’s gymnasium in Nuremberg and was admitted to theological study at the University of Erlangen in 1826.

He was influenced by the Reformed professors of theology Christian Krafft and Thomas von Kempen. He was introduced to the Lutheran Confessions and became a Lutheran under the teaching of David Hollaz. In 1828 he spent a term at the University of Berlin, attracted not so much by the lectures of the professors as by the sermons of the famous preachers. Löhe graduated from the Erlangen in 1830, but waited until 1831 before receiving a pastoral assignment to Kirchenlamitz in Upper Franconia. Löhe’s work in Fürth was a troubled one, his fervent evangelical preaching attracted large congregations and puzzled the ecclesiastical authorities. A similar experience ensued at Nürnberg, where, as assistant pastor of St. Egidien, he was criticized for his sermons and his anti-pietistic leanings, he transferred through a series of parishes before settling in the village of Neuendettelsau, about 30 kilometres from Fürth, in 1837 after failing to gain an assignment in an urban setting. He was married that same year.

By most accounts, Löhe was an ideal pastor who interacted well with a variety of different classes of people. He focused his theological studies on the Lutheran Confessions and put considerable thought into the celebration of Holy Communion as the center of congregational life. Löhe was interested in old Lutheran liturgies. Löhe was noted for his ontological view of the pastoral office, which he believed existed independently of congregational call as a direct appointment from Jesus Christ through ordination, with respect to which position he found himself in opposition to C. F. W. Walther, he combined all these ideas with a heavy insistence on social renewal. Löhe endured strained relations with the regional authorities over articulating a clear confessional status for the church during a period from 1848 until 1852. At one point, he considered leaving the church, though he was able to resolve differences between himself and the church leadership. Despite being confined to a pastorate in an out-of-the-way village, which he never left, Löhe exhibited a keen interest in missionary work.

He was concerned about the condition of German immigrants to North America. He solicited funds through a variety of sources to help bolster the spiritual state of the immigrant population beginning in 1841. In 1843, responding to F. C. D. Wyneken's Die Noth der deutschen Lutheraner in Nordamerika, Löhe and Rev. Johann Friedrich Wucherer established the Kirchliche Mittheilungen aus und über Nord-Amerika in order to raise support on behalf of the needs of German Lutheran immigrants in America. Löhe encouraged the sending of pastors to North America to assist the settlers and help with conversion of the Native American populations. To this end, he constructed two schools to train missionaries, one of which became Wartburg College in Waverly and the other, now Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Individuals sent by Löhe were instrumental in the founding of the Evangelical Lutheran Joint Synod of Ohio, though Löhe withdrew his support from that synod in 1845 over doctrinal differences.

Löhe's emissaries were among the founders of the LCMS in 1846. In 1853, Löhe supporters established the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Iowa. While Löhe is most well remembered for his encouragement of missionary activity in the United States, he supported work in Brazil, Ukraine and New Guinea through his Foreign Missionary Society. In addition to being concerned about foreign matters, Löhe retained a concern for domestic social matters. Here he saw the bad situation of young women. In the rural society they had a underprivileged status and suffered from lack of education. In this spirit, he founded the first Deaconess Mother House in 1849; the house became a place of social and education activity, hosting schools and other social agencies. The deaconesses lived in a spiritual-economic community. Löhe died in Neuendettelsau on 2 January 1872 at the age of sixty-three, having influenced the life of the Lutheran Church on five continents; the chapel at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, an academic building at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, are dedicated to his memory.

He had significant influence on missions, con
