The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Dear Chicar,
Thanks for posting the link. However, the start of the video was very confusing - the presenter seemed to be implying it was bizarre to wear a corset and crinoline!? What a strange woman..  Wink

Yours,
Miranda.

Not to be the linguist dictator, but in your initial statement, I think you mean "cherish" or "appreciate" chivalry, as opposed to "regret" which basically means you hope it had never happened...

My, the picture editor needs to find out the dates of his/her pictures.  These go from Regency to Edwardian.  Things did change during that time!

In French, the verb 'regretter' means more or less the same thing as when we use it in English in such phrases as 'we regret his passing' (for someone who has died).

Yes, I lost interest when I saw Regency clips (much though I love the movie), but if they can't get even the basics right what hope for the rest of the content?

You have to tread a fine line between avant-garde surrealism and getting yourself sectioned...
