Welcome to /his/ - History & Humanities
Herodotus
This board is dedicated to the discussion of history and the other humanities such as philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc. Please use /lit/ for discussions of literature. Threads should be about specific topics, and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged.

For the purpose of determining what is history, please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago. Historical discussions should be focused on past events, and not their contemporary consequences. Discussion of modern politics, current events, popular culture, or other non-historical topics should be posted elsewhere. General discussions about international culture should go on /int/.

/his/ is not /pol/, and Global Rule #3 is in effect. Do not try to treat this board as /pol/ with dates. Blatant racism and trolling will not be tolerated, and a high level of discourse is expected. History can be examined from many different conflicting viewpoints; please treat other posters with respect and address the content of their post instead of attacking their character.

When discussing history, please reference credible source material, and provide as much supporting information as possible in your posts.

Red Army Tactics
soviet
Was the Red Army "Human Waves Tactic" a myth or an actual fighting strategy? What about the "One person has a gun, one has ammo." Did this only apply to Stalingrad? Or was it a myth?

The jealous Northern Wei Xianbei Tuoba Princess Lanling and her Han Chinese husband Liu Hui
kk0360772
Everyone's heard the human swine story but not this one. This is found in the Book of Wei (魏書)

When the Xianbei Tuoba Northern Wei dynasty ruled northern China, it was a custom for the Xianbei to receive southern Han Chinese ex-royal defectors when their dynasties were overthrown in southern China and marry Xianbei princesses off to the Han Chinese exiled royals.

When the Han Chinese Liu Song dynasty (劉宋) in southern China was overthrown by the Han Chinese Southern Qi dynasty, the surviving Han Chinese Liu Song princes fled north to Xianbei ruled Northern Wei (北魏) and were granted asylum and noble titles by the Xianbei Tuoba royals. The Xianbei Tuoba Princess Lanling (蘭陵公主) was married to Han Chinese Liu Song prince Liu Hui (刘辉)

Liu Hui discovered his Xianbei wife was an extremely jealous and psychotic woman who demanded strict monogamy from him. As an ex royal, Liu Hui was accustomed to having his way so he had affairs with numerous Han Chinese women including one of his maids and impregnated her.

Xianbei Princess Lanling went berserk, murdered the maid, ripping the fetus out of her belly and stuffing the naked corpse of the Han Chinese maid with straw to show to her Han Chinese husband Liu Hui to frighten him into becoming faithful. Instead of becoming faithful Liu Hui was horrified and shunned the company of Princess Lanling.

Who was the greatest evil during WWII? Britain, America, or the USSR?
B8B44CDF-8723-4CD5-91A9-ADB4C99E3CEC
Which nation was the perpetrator of the most heinous acts again peace and humanity during the Second World War?

For me it’s Britain. In 1939 the UK declared war on Germany completely unprovoked (citing a duty to “protect” a manufactured Polish state created after WWI, a state which no longer existed). After being soundly defeated and driven into the Atlantic Ocean, Britain AGAIN refused to entire negotiations for peace in the war they themselves started, even going as far as to imprison Rudolf Hess, a civilian government peace emissary who traveled in good faith to try and end the war.

Britain proceeded to fund all manner of terrorists, partisans, cutthroats, and mass murderers all over Europe (in violation of the Geneva Convention), to wreak havoc on the peaceful people of Europe and German peacekeeping forces.

It gets even WORSE.. The RAF, not content to simply terrorize innocent people by proxy, began firebombing cities and towns throughout Germany, even destroying Dresden, the most beautiful city on earth, and murdering uncountable numbers of women and children for seemingly no reason other than to tickle the fancy of their obese dictator Winston Churchill. I know that the USSR is often considered the most evil nation during the second world war, but I believe that England is responsible for the most extreme and senseless acts of barbarity relative to its small size.

What do you think?

why are names in foreign languages not usually translated to english?

You have typical things like Alexander the Great or Charles The Bold or whatever which are translated to english

but then you see something like Aurangzeb Alamgir which looks like jibberish but actually means Ornament To The Throne, Conqueror Of The World which is utterly badass.

I remember even seeing a turkish guy named Bayezid which literally means Thunderbolt.

Muhammed and Genghis Khan

Ok, is there anyone in history that comes to being as close of a successful military leader than these two? You might say napoleon, alexander the great or Hannibal but these people were from already advanced nations for their era and already had a good foundation to go on to conquer other lands. But these guys came from tribes and lived in huts and yet accomplished things and dominated nations that were vastly superior to them. You might say that during muhammeds time there wasn't many military expansion but soon after his death you had the muslim expansion.

But how did they do it?

Tasmanian abos
Who are/were the most primitive people ever to live? Post about very primitive peoples ITT. Please don't be racist!

Tasmanian aborigines are my bet. No metallurgy, agriculture and no ability to make fire (they knew how to use it, but not how to make it so if their cooking fire ever went out they had to find another tribe to give them fire. There was an unspoken rule that even enemy tribes will put aside their beef and give fire to someone in need). They wore very little clothing despite living in a cold climate.

Here's a picture. Notice the scarification on their torsos. Also, the dude on the right has really big forearms, they're bigger than his bicep.

If not, then is maintaining life a necessary struggle against whatever forces would find the ending of such life more convenient than its sustained existence?

Dagger Stab Myth
Stab-in-the-back_cartoon_1924
How much truth was there to the dagger stab myth?
>Dolchstoßlegende, literally "dagger stab myth") was the notion, widely believed and promulgated in right-wing circles in Germany after 1918, that the German Army did not lose World War I on the battlefield but was instead betrayed by the civilians on the home front, especially the republicans who overthrew the Hohenzollern monarchy in the German Revolution of 1918–19. Advocates denounced the German government leaders who signed the Armistice on November 11, 1918, as the "November Criminals" (German: Novemberverbrecher).
Was it real or was it Nazi propaganda? And if so how do you explain that it existed before the Nazis?

How the Sunni Mamluks treated the bodies of the Ismaili Fatimid Imams and their libraries
Fatimids
>Attached to the southern end of the eastern palace was a mausoleum known as Turbat al-Za'faraan ("The Saffron Tomb"), which served as the burial site of the caliphs.[7][4]:57 Even the remains of the Fatimid caliphs in Tunisia were transferred here when the caliphate moved to Egypt.[2] The tombs were eventually completely demolished by the Mamluk amir Jaharka al-Khalili to make way for the Khan al-Khalili in the late 14th century, which gave its name to the surrounding souq area still present today.[6][8] Jaharkas reportedly disposed of the bones of the Fatimid royal family by throwing them into the rubbish hills east of the city.[4]

Before the Mamluks did this, Saladin's Sunni soldiers also trashed and looted the Ismaili Fatimid House of Knowledge and converted Al-Azhar from Ismaili into a Sunni school and mosque destroying countless Ismaili books, scientific instruments and valuables. Saladin's soldiers also tried to rape Coptic Christian nuns who committed suicide when they attacked.

The true Middle Way
Vimalamitra_2
A warning to the Buddhists on this board. Don't fall for the perennialist trap.
It is likely that the Absolutist religions are indeed coming to the same realizations as each other: the 'I AM' realization, a non-conceptual mental transformation causing the perception of an Absolute, essence of oneness permeating all of reality and rendering multiplicity a falsehood. Such mental transformations do occur, and are the accomplishments of Absolutists.

Buddhism is different than this. The "I AM" realization is the last stand of Samsara. The realization of the Absolutist does not liberate from the rounds of rebirth.

The liberating insight is that of emptiness. Sunyata. Empty of self nature.
The single doctrine which distinguishes Buddhism from the other religions of the world, is Paticca Samuppada, Dependent Origination, and by extension, Shunyata.
This core of the Buddha's teaching is universal to all sects, from Theravada to Mahayana to Vajrayana to Dzogchen. It is the definitive, quintessential Buddhist teaching. The Four Noble Truths, the three marks of existence, even the Noble Eightfold Path (apart from Right View) can be claimed by the other Indian traditions, but NOT Dependent Origination. Dependent Origination is the single most important Buddhist teaching which sets it apart from all others.

Any Absolutist, Essentialist, Realist or Nihilistic interpretation of Buddhism, renders Dependent Origination meaningless. Do not fall for the trap. It is the nature of Samsara that afflicted minds incline towards Absolutism and Nihilism, towards reification, towards objectification.

Invading Iraq: The Mongol Way
HulaguInBaghdad
The fall of Baghdad is said to be one of the deadliest days in history, probably leading to the death of over 100,000.

The Mongols brought together a large army from all over Eurasia, the largest army they'd ever fielded. Soldiers were brought in from Georgia, Armenia, Mongolia, China, and even Frankish Crusaders joined in.

The Caliph of Iraq was a dumb mulatto who did not call for help from his Muslim allies. He did not build up his walls. His was given generous terms of surrender but refused them and insulted the Khan. When his armies amassed, he sent 20,000 cavalry right at them, who were quickly destroyed. The Mongols broke into the city in less than two weeks. 3000 nobles attempted to negotiate but were all killed. Then, the mongols killed nearly the entire city, destroying some of the greatest libraries,hospitals and palaces in the world. The water ran black from the ink, and red from blood.

As for the Caliph: Marco Polo says the Khan locked him in a room with treasure with no food or water. I hate GOT but it's similar to something that happened in the show.

During the Nuremberg Trials, a writer was sentenced to death
Julius_Streicher_72-920_crop
>Streicher was not a member of the military and did not take part in planning the Holocaust, or the invasion of other nations. Yet his pivotal role in inciting the extermination of Jews was significant enough, in the prosecutors' judgment, to include him in the indictment of Major War Criminals before the International Military Tribunal – which sat in Nuremberg, where Streicher had once been an unchallenged authority. He complained throughout the process that all his judges were Jews.

>His publishing firm also released three antisemitic books for children, including the 1938 Der Giftpilz (translated into English as The Toadstool or The Poisonous Mushroom), one of the most widespread pieces of propaganda, which warned about the supposed dangers Jews posed by using the metaphor of an attractive yet deadly mushroom. The publishing firm was financially very successful and made Streicher a multi-millionaire. At the end of the war, Streicher was convicted of crimes against humanity in the Nuremberg trials and was executed.

Fair or unfair?

>In a nation that was proud of hard work, strong families, close-knit communities, and our faith in God, too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption. Human identity is no longer defined by what one does, but by what one owns. But we’ve discovered that owning things and consuming things does not satisfy our longing for meaning. We’ve learned that piling up material goods cannot fill the emptiness of lives which have no confidence or purpose.

>The symptoms of this crisis of the American spirit are all around us. For the first time in the history of our country a majority of our people believe that the next five years will be worse than the past five years. Two-thirds of our people do not even vote. The productivity of American workers is actually dropping, and the willingness of Americans to save for the future has fallen below that of all other people in the Western world.

Psychology and Marxism
YouWantToFuckYourMother
How was/is pyschology, psychotherapy and mental illness treated in Marxist nations like the USSR and China etc?

I know that in the capitalist west today, profitability and lobbying influences philosophy heavily with highly politicized 'scientific' guides like the DSM regularly changing to profit the pharmaceutical and insurance institutions.

Going back further the shift away from lobotomies and the shutting down of many institutions when it was revealed how cruel many were marked a major shift in the 20th century.

I'm curious how marxist/communist/socialist nations dealt with this aspect and how their philosophy for treatment was both similar and different from here. Thanks in advance.

How has America retained so much religiosity in comparison to Europe? It doesn't even have state-supported churches or monarchs, so I don't see why Christianity would remain such a strong influence over there, especially when their own Constitution explicitly makes out the USA to be a secular state.

Explain Gnosticism (Christian)
BC5A3521-EB84-4343-B54E-4F7EDF8939BF
Basically all that I can gather is these following ideas

1. The God (YHWH) of the OT / Torah and God (The one Jesus talks about in the NT / Bible) are retconned into being two seperate entities with YHWH being retconned into being a flawed or even evil being

2. The true god exists in the form of 30 emanations (think the trilogy) that represent godly and good archetypes concepts and ideas (Idea, Words, Wisdom, Church, Christ, Man etc) with half being male and half female allowing them metaphorically give birth to more emanations

3. OT / Torah god was created due to some mythological or theological event or fuck up that created an imperfect being that couldn’t exist in the whole of the universe (god). So he gets kicked out but if he gets kicked out of god then that must mean somewhere exists for him to be kicked out into thus the universe (our universe at least) exists

4. The OT / Torah god basically gets his memory wiped and believes that if he Dosent remember anything exisiting before him he must be god

5. OT / Torah basically happen the same except the snake is actually one of the emanations of the true god or some shit who convinced humans to eat the from the tree of knowledge to stop them acting like literal animals

6. New Testament is basically the same with Jesus trying to make people woke that his Father (True god) and the Jewish / OT god are two seperate beings

Also some other bullshit about how the false / Bad god has seven bad angels / daemons or some shit that control earth and each planet in the solar system or some shit. Am I getting this right?

Roman Republic divisions
expansion-Roman-Italy
So from what i understand during the Roman Republic there were different political divisions.
Or there were some places that were fully roman others were client states etc.
When you look for a map of the Republic it always just shows on big area that was under Roman control.
Wasn't it a progress from a patchwork of different types of controlled areas to finally during the empire one country.
