HalinaFAQ at marek@enteract.com This Web site is home to an excellent project which aims to translate the complete works of Halina Poświatowska (1935-1967), one of the most renowned Polish poets of the twentieth century. Poświatowska's works have been widely translated and the translations here are available pro bono for the wider community.

The site contains a reference scheme, brief information about the poet, and details of the nature of the project.

Citadelle Citadelle is a Web site devoted to the popular history and culture of the Middle Ages, with a particular emphasis on Western Europe. It aims to make medieval history, language and literature accessible to a wide audience and as such is perhaps not suitable for those approaching this area from a more serious scholarly perspective. It will, however, offer some useful background information to students working on medieval French history and literature in particular. Updated at sporadic intervals, each edition features new articles on a variety of themes related to the Middle Ages including a ling From New Humbul Resources on January 5, 2005 at 10:30 p.m..

Litopys UPA The Web site "Litopys UPA - Chronicle of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army" has been produced by members of the Ukrainian community in Toronto, Canada. In essence it reproduces the Litopys UPA series of books in which are published source documents and materials on the history of the UPA (Ukrainska Povstanska Armiia). The range also encompasses "in a more general sense, the history of Ukraine of that period." Volumes deal with either chronological or geographically arranged topics. The range concentrates on the events during the Second World War and provides a very moving testament of the Ukrainian From New Humbul Resources on January 5, 2005 at 10:30 p.m..


Catholic encyclopedia: demonology The Web site "Catholic encyclopedia: demonology" is part of the New Advent site, which provides information on religious and theological topics. This entry focuses on demonology, defined on the site as "the science or doctrine concerning demons". It provides a good basic introduction to the subject for those studying witchcraft, the history of religious ideas or theology. Links to other entries in the encyclopedia are embedded in the text, which is also very useful. Since the site is published by a Roman Catholic organisation, the site-user must bear this in mind. The article briefly discuss From New Humbul Resources on January 5, 2005 at 10:30 p.m..


Catholic encyclopedia : Poland The Web Site "Catholic encyclopedia : Poland" is part of the larger New Advent site. This provides an introduction for those who wish to find out the basic facts about the history of Poland, especially in relation to the Roman Catholic Church. The article is divided into the following sections: geography; political history; ecclesiastical history; the religious orders in Poland; and the present position of the Church. The emphasis falls more heavily on the Church because New Advent is a Roman Catholic organisation. More even-handed coverage of earlier periods is a good feature of this site.

Catholic encyclopedia : devil The Web site "Catholic encyclopedia : devil" is part of the extremely extensive New Advent site, which provides a collection of information on religious and theological topics. This page features an explanation and description of the various concepts that came to be amalgamated into the concept of the devil. It is a limited entry, which confines itself (unsurprisingly for an entry in a Catholic encyclopedia published in 1908) to a rather narrow focus on biblical demonology, the ideas of St Thomas, St Anselm, and Scotus among others. Nevertheless it is a good introduction to these particular in From New Humbul Resources on January 5, 2005 at 10:30 p.m..

Baczyński is one of Poland's best-loved poets, who tragically died on the fourth day of the Warsaw Uprising in 1944.

Halina Poświatowska This amateur Web site is dedicated to Halina Poświatowska (1935-1967), one of the best Polish poets of the twentieth century. Her early death and the quality of her work, led many to view her as a potential Nobel Laureate. Her poetry has been widely translated into English. Time spent in the USA clearly influenced the content of her poetry, as well as her frequent hospitalisation. This site is, if anything, over-detailed - in particular the biography. The site features a good range of poetry and prose, including: L'amour; Nad wierszem; Modlitwa; O tobie; and Poemat asocjacyjny z motywem From New Humbul Resources on January 5, 2005 at 10:30 p.m..
