Evus is the name of my blog, created and updated for those who love to know ancient and medieval history, iconography and symbols, painting, carving and all the arts of the past cultures. The project was to create a virtual place to share knowledge and awareness of the past.
Even a symbol or a detail hidden in a work of art, may reveal surprising news, helpful for becoming aware and for interpreting our present.
To “unveil” a lost trace of the past, to “reveal” a misunderstood historical character, or a forgotten event, can disclose new aspects of our past.
In regards to our editorial duties, Evus will try not to fall into the trap to publish what has been said and written before. The articles published in this magazine will always be the result of new and thorough research, conducted according to the most rigorous scientific methods and bibliographical content, verified by experts in their specific fields, and shared to the world in an clear, direct and concise language, comprehensible to everyone.
Evus does not believe in dogmas concerning history and does not want to state any “truth.” The blog wants to be one more tool for people seeking new interpretations of history. Evus is for people who are curious to know and, at the same time, aware of not knowing enough.
It ’s the web magazine for women and men open to dialogue, ready to share knowledge and to communicate without the fear of being robbed of their knowledge.
That’s the reason all the articles of Evus are registered under the license “Creative Commons” which allows one to share the contents of the magazine and spread them over the internet. According to this license, you are free to use the contents of Evus, but you must agree to three main conditions: one must justly attribute the work (that means you must always cite the source and the author), the duplication of the work cannot be used for commercial purposes, and it is prohibited to alter or transform the original work.
