SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Lupus of Sens

Saint Lupus of Sens was an early French bishop of Sens. He was the son of Betton, Count of Tonnerre, "Blessed Betto," a member of the royal house of the Kingdom of Burgundy; the Romanesque church dedicated to Saint Loup at Naud, 8 km from Provins in Champagne in the east of France is distinguished by the outstanding sculptures in the porch of its great doorway, with an ambitious iconographic program in which Saint Loup mediates entry into the mystery of the Trinity. About 980, archbishop of Sens, made a gift to the Benedictine community of the abbey of Saint-Pierre-le-Vif at Sens of four altars in villa que dicitus Naudus, in honore sancti lupi consecratum—"in the demesne, called Naud, consecrated in honor of Saint Loup"—betokening the presence of a shrine on this site, a priory under the direction of the abbot of Saint-Pierre-le-Vif. Other documents mention Saint-Loup-de-Naud among the possessions of the abbey at Sens, seat of an archbishop with close political ties to the French Crown, who had Paris within his diocese.

Thus, though it lay so close to Provins, a seat of the counts of Champagne and the abbey church was completed by Henri le Libéral, comte de Champagne, the priory at Saint-Loup-de-Naud looked to Sens for its patronage: a visit from the abbot is documented in 1120. In 1160/61 Hugues de Toucy, Archbishop of Sens, presented to the priory the relic of Saint Loup, brought from the abbey of Sainte-Colombe, to that community's dismay; the priory was laid waste by the English in 1432, during the Hundred Years' War and again by the Huguenots in 1567, during the French Wars of Religion. Numerous communes of France are named Saint-Loup. A number of the communes called Saint-Loup in the west of France are not connected with a specific Saint Loup; this article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Herbermann, Charles, ed..

Wigwam (Chula, Virginia)

The Wigwam is a landmark home, of cape cod style, built in 1790, close to the Appomattox River near Lodore on Rt. 637, in Amelia County, Virginia. Virginia Governor William Branch Giles made it his home until his death; the original 18th-century building included only the back section, with the more formal front being added in 1818. There is some information that the front section was relocated from the John Royall estate, called Caxamelalea. However, experts from Williamsburg have refuted this based upon their inspection of the house, it has 18 rooms and at one time had 5 full baths. There are 4 chimneys that serve 13 fireplaces, 65 windows, 17 of which are dormers. One room in the basement appears to have been used to hold Yankee prisoners in the American Civil War. In 1832, Giles' son conveyed the Wigwam to William Henry Harrison Harrison, with his wife Lucy, raised six children there, established a school for boys in the home named Amelia Academy; the Christian school was run, principally, to prepare its students for entrance to the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

The school's 1859–1860 flyer indicated a census of 25 pupils, the school's board members included John Hartwell Cocke. In his final years running the school, William Henry was assisted by his eldest son, J. Hartwell Harrison, who phased out the school and made the Wigwam his home with wife Anna and their six children. After his return from the Civil War, Hartwell farmed the property and became the area's local Baptist minister; the devastating effects of the Long Depression resulted in a mortgage default in 1896, the family's eviction from the home by Hartwell's brother-in-law, Lewis Harvie Blair. In the mid 1900s, the property was renovated by Hartwell's son, Robert N. Harrison; the Wigwam was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1969. In the 1990s the home and farm underwent major renovations by new ownership

Action of 7 July 1565

This battle in the Northern Seven Years' War took place on 7 July 1565 and was a decisive victory for a Swedish fleet of 49 ships, under Klas Horn, over a combined Danish and Lübecker fleet of 36 ships, under Otte Rud. The Danish Dans Christopher was sunk and Trolle drowned but some of her survivors boarded and captured the small Swedish ship St Goran; the Swedish Grip was rammed and sunk by a larger Lübeck ship, which sank as a result. After the Swedish ship Gyllende Lejon caught fire the fleets scattered, leaving the Danish flagship, Jegermesther and she was captured at about 9:30 pm. After this the Allies returned to Copenhagen, the Swedes to Dalarö. Swedish vice-admiral Sten Sture and his captain, were killed.
