Ivan's mother, Milena Rudnytska, was an ambassador of the UNDO to the Polish Sejm, chairman of the Ukrainian Women's Union in Lviv and of the Ukrainian Women's World Union; the mother belonged to the so-called "five bunch" of Rudnytsky. Among them are literary scholar and translator Mykhailo Rudnytsky and well-known public figure Volodymyr Rudnytsky and composer and musician Antin Rudnytsky. All of them have made an outstanding contribution to the development of Ukrainian political and cultural life. Ivan Lysiak-Rudnytsky received his school education in Lviv. In 1925-29 he studied at the Ukrainian elementary school, from 1929 to 1937 — at the Academic Gymnasium in Lviv, the oldest Ukrainian Gymnasium not only in Galicia, but throughout Ukraine.

He defended his doctoral dissertation at Charles University in Prague. A well-known scientist Edward Winter, who ia a connoisseur of Slavic and Ukrainian subjects, was the scientific supervisor of Ivan. Drahomanov's political views became the topic of dissertation; the defense took place in April 1945. In the 1940s he was a member of the Ukrainian Student Society "Mazepynets", the Ukrainian Student Community in Prague, together with A. Bilynsky, V. Rudko, O.

D. there. In February 1956 he was promoted to assistant professor at a local Catholic educational institution — La Salle College, where he taught courses in Russian history and recent Western European history. With the beginning of the publication of the magazine "Modernity" Lysiak-Rudnitsky became his active contributor. Here, in addition to the original articles, he published Ukrainian translations of his major English-language scientific publications. Cooperation with the magazine lasted until 1967. In 1967 he co-authored the "Statement", sent form the leading American intellectuals of Ukrainian descent to the leadership of Soviet Union and Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, with the political requirements to establish citizenship of Ukrainian SSR, establish diplomatic relations between Ukrainian SSR and foreign countries, to provide the Ukrainian language with the status of the official state language in Ukrainian SSR, to legalize the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church and the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, etc.

Throughout his life he wrote for the Ukrainian emigrant periodicals, in particular for the newspaper Ukrayinski Visti and the magazines Meetings, Modernity. Ivan Lysiak-Rudnytsky wrote works on the history of Ukraine, Ukrainian political thought of the XIX-XX centuries and the theory of the nation. Historical essays published in 2 volumes. Has a great influence on contemporary historiography; the center of philosophical interests of the scientist was historical knowledge, in the center of his historiographic interests — the history of Ukrainian socio-political thought from the middle of the XIX century to the 30's of the XX century. His most important researches are devoted to M. Drahomanov, Vyacheslav Lypynsky, M. Khvylovy, O. Nazaruk.

The leading theme is the fate of Ukraine in recent history, first of all the analysis of the decisive tendencies of its political changes in the context of the modern world process and political forecasting. His intellectual homeland was Germany of the XVIII-XX centuries; the most tangible in the work of the historian is the influence of the philosophy of Hegel's history, his thoughts on the objective logic presence in the historical process and the possibility of freedom only in the rule of law. In 1970 Ivan Lysiak-Rudnytsky wrote an article “The Soviet Ukraine in Historical Perspective”, which analyzed the “built-in tension” in the status of Ukraine as a nominally sovereign state. In the article, he wrote that in the era of the collapse of colonial empires, the USSR became an anachronism and only when the Leninist slogan "self-determination of nations until separation" ceases to be a hoax and Russia will be able to live like good neighbors; the scientist insisted that Muscovy-Russia of the 14-17th century should not be considered European in essence.

And Europeanization occurred as a result of the reforms of Peter I. Ukraine have never experienced an era of sudd

Bible translations into Japanese

There are two main translations of the Bible into Japanese in use today—the New Interconfessional Version and the New Japanese Bible. Both are published with different translation goals; the New Japanese Version aims to be used as a literal translation using modern Japanese while the New Interconfessional Version aims to be ecumenically used by all Christian denominations and must therefore conform to various theologies. Protestant Evangelicals most use the New Japanese Version, but the New Interconfessional Version is the most distributed and the one used by the Catholic Church, the United Church of Christ, Lutheran Church factions and many Anglicans in Japan. Japanese Bible translation began when Catholic missionaries entered Japan in 1549, Jesuits published portions of the New Testament in Kyoto, in 1613, though no copy survives. How much was translated by the Jesuit Mission is not confirmed, it would seem that at least Gospels for the Sundays of the year and other Bible pericopes were translated.

Shortly afterwards, Christianity was banned and all the missionaries were exiled. That translation of the Bible is now lost. Work on translation started outside Japan in the 19th century by Protestant missionaries interested in Japan. Karl Gutzlaff of the London Missionary Society translated the Gospel of John in Macau in 1837, referring to the Chinese version of Robert Morrison. Bernard Jean Bettelheim, a missionary in the Ryūkyū Kingdom and, exiled, translated the Bible to Ryūkyūan and published the Gospel of Luke and John, Acts of the Apostles and the Epistle to the Romans in Hong Kong in 1855. Japan re-opened in 1858, many missionaries came into the country, they found that intellectuals could read Chinese texts so they used Chinese Bibles at first. However, the proportion of intellectuals was only in the region of 2% and in order to spread their religion across the country more a Japanese Bible became necessary. Incidentally, a second reversion of Bettelheim's Luke was published in 1858, intercolumnated with the Chinese Delegates' version, designed for missionary use in Japan.

This version, with its heavy Ryūkyūan flavor, proved just as unsuitable as Chinese-only Bibles. After leaving Asia and immigrating to the United States, Bettelheim continued work on his translations, newly revised editions of Luke and the Acts, now closer to Japanese than Ryūkyūan, were published posthumously in Vienna in 1873-1874 with the assistance of August Pfizmaier. A translation was done by James Curtis Hepburn, of the Presbyterian Mission, Samuel Robbins Brown, of the Reformed Church of America, it is presumed that Japanese intellectual assistants helped translate Bridgman and Culbertson's Chinese Bible into Japanese, Hepburn and Brown adjusted the phrases. The Gospels of Mark and John were published in 1872. Hepburn's project was taken over by a Missionary Committee, sponsored by the American Bible Society and Foreign Bible Society and the Scottish Bible Society in Tokyo, their New Testament and Old Testament, called the Meiji Version, was published in 1880 and 1887 respectively. They translated from a Greek text as well as the King James version.

A revision of the New Testament, the Taisho Revised Version appeared in 1917 during the Taishō period. This version was read outside of Christian society, its phrases became popular in Japan. This was based on the English Revised Version. After World War II, the Japan Bible Society translated the "Bible, Japanese Colloquial"; the New Testament being ready in 1954 and the Old Testament in 1955. It was adopted by certain Protestant churches but never became popular because of its poor literary style; this translation was based on the Revised Standard Version. Based on the New Living Translation this translation has an informal literary style which attempts to capture the meaning of the original texts in modern Japanese. Revised version released in 2016 by Word of Life press. 1977 version available online in PDF form from Biblica and at In 1970 the NSK - different from the Japan Bible Society - released the first edition of the New Japanese Bible, translated from Hebrew and Greek. The Shin Kaiyaku endeavors to translate theologically difficult passages in a way, linguistically accurate to the source texts, to strike a balance between word-for-word and thought-for-thought but erring toward a literal translation.

The latest edition was released in 2017. The Second Vatican Council emphasized respect for the Bible. Consortia between the Catholic and the Protestant churches were organized and translation projects started in many countries, including Japan; the collaboration committee published the Interconfessional Translation Bible of the New Testament in 1978, but it was not supported by both congregations and Protestant. The committee published a revised version in 1987, the New Interconfessional Translation Bible, which included the Old Testament, it has been distributed well by various organisations such as Gideons International, the next edition was planned to be released in 2016.

Joseph baronets

There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Joseph, both in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. One creation is extinct; the Joseph Baronetcy, of Stoke-on-Trent in the County of Stafford, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 8 July 1942 for the businessman Francis L'Estrange Joseph. The title became extinct on his death in 1951; the Joseph Baronetcy, of Portsoken in the City of London, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 16 November 1943 for the businessman Samuel Joseph. He was Co-Chairman and Managing Director of the construction company Bovis and served as Lord Mayor of London from 1942 to 1943, he was succeeded by the second Baronet. He was a prominent Conservative politician and served under Margaret Thatcher as Secretary of State for Industry from 1979 to 1981 and as Secretary of State for Education and Science from 1981 to 1986. In 1987 he was created a life peer as Baron Joseph, of Portsoken in the City of London, in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.

On Lord Joseph's death in 1994 the life peerage became extinct while he was succeeded in the baronetcy by his son, the third Baronet and present holder of the title. He does not use his title. Joseph has not proven his succession to the baronetcy and is therefore not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant.
