In other cases, the adjective "Royal" is given to distinguish the "true" from the "so-called", but the problem remained since it is still not clear who the "Royal Scythians" or the "Royal Huns" were, if they are to be identified with other people or else they are a distinct one ‒ in the case of the "Royal Scythians", some authors think that it's another name for the Sarmatians, while others consider them a branch of the authentic Scythians; and the term "Royal Huns" is often applied to Attila's Huns to distinguish them from other groups having the same name.

Since the Alans, together with the Yazyg and Roxlans are classified as Massagetas in early records and as Sarmatians in later ones, henceforth the terms "Alan", "Yazyg", "Roxlan" and "Massageta" will be mentioned as "Sarmatian" in order to make this essay more intelligible, avoiding synonymous or quasi-synonymous terms (unless specification is required). This story coincides with the Biblical account concerning Nimrod, though it is feasible that Nimrod set up the construction of the Tower of Bavel on behalf of his father, being coherent with the Babylonian myth in which the founder of Babylon was Bel, the father of Ninus (Nimrud), that was the first king.

Like many texts of the time, it treats the subject mechanically, detailing fairy legends with such care and precision as to leach away a measuyre of the magic. To rephrase the Lamanite king's heart-felt expression, are we prepared to "give away all our myths to know thee"? (Alma 22:18) Addendum (April 2016): In my response to one of the comments of my "Seven Myths" article, I stated that Since, at the end of the day, the Fall is the theologically important part to retain, I think any scenario that retains the Fall can be considered orthodox even if it doesn't include literal, exclusive genetic descent.

There is a man in your kingdom, in whom is the spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of your father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, were found in him; and the king Nevukhadnetzar your father, the king, [I say], your father, made him master of the magicians, enchanters, Kasdim, and soothsayers". (Daniel 5:7,11) It results evident that here the "Chaldeans" (Kasdim) are not a people but a kind of social class or caste associated with the magicians, enchanters, sorcerers, soothsayers, namely, they were astrologers, exactly like the Magi in Persia.

On the muck, which represents the poor, working-class folk that Hurston loved so much, Janie and Tea Cake accomplish what Hurston herself aims to accomplish with her novel: a redefinition of the black community that acknowledges and privileges the unique gifts of all of its members. The repertoires of late 20th-century opera companies may include, for example, Giacomo Puccini's Turandot, about a princess who asks her suitors three riddles and beheads them if they fail to answer correctly and a prince who will die if his name is discovered; Richard Strauss' Die Frau ohne Schatten ("The Woman Without a Shadow"), about a princess who must gain a shadow or her husband will be turned to stone; and Wagner's TannhSuser, Lohengrin, Der Ring des Nibelungen, and Parsifal, all loosely based on tales from medieval Germanic mythology.

By now, it should be clear that the peer review system must play only a partial role in determing what scientists think of as established science. Since this is basically a review of the Grimm Brothers' Home Page - not the "info-article" on resources for researching Grimm tales (which is more what the Scribd article is about), I'll say again in a slightly different way, don't be turned off or turn away from the looks of the Grimm Brothers' Home Page.
