OLD EUROPE

7528 years 💙💛❤
🇷🇴 of continuity 🇷🇴

1. André Armand:Indeed this is one of the oldest peoples of Europe…be them Thracians, Getes or Dacians. The peoples have remained the same since the Neolithic era – polished stone era – until today, so sustaining the continuity of a nation by example, maybe unique in the history of the world.”

2. Wilhelm Hoffmann – Description of Earth:Indeed, nowhere will you find a power of faster understanding, a mind more open, a spirit more alert, accompanied by the gracefulness of being, like one finds with the latter Rumanian. This nation, risen through instruction, should stand in front of the spiritual culture of humanity. And as an addition, its language is so rich and harmonious, it should fit the most cultivated nation on Earth.”

3. Marija Gimbutas – professor at U.C.L.A. – Civilization and Culture:Romania is the hearth of what I named Old Europe, a cultural entity of 6.500 – 3.500 B.C., based on a matriarchal society, theocratic, peaceful, loving and creators of art, that preceded the patriarchal Indo-Europeanized societies of warriors from the bronze and iron age. It became evident that this ancient European civilization precedes the Sumerian by millennia. It was a period of real harmony, in full agreement with the creator energies of nature.”

4. Sumerian researcher A. Kifisin: “The ancestors of Rumanians had a powerful influence upon the whole ancient world, respectively upon old Ellada, old Egypt, Sumer and even China.” 5. John Maridis, 1968, professor at University of London, states: “The Neolithic cultures Cucuteni and Gumelnița are maybe Europe’s richest.” 6. Daniel Ruzo (1968) – Peruvian explorer (La historia fantastica de un descubrimiento): “The Carpathians are in a region of the world, where the European center of the oldest culture known today was situated.” 7. William Schiller – American archaeologist (Where was civilization born?): “Civilization was born where the Romanian people live today, spreading to the east and the west (…) 13.000 – 15.000 years ago.” 8. Klaus Schmidt, German archaeologist: “The peoples of the oldest civilizations of China and Japan had migrated during the Neolithic age, for the most part, from S-E Europe, from the region of Dnieper, Danube and the Balkans.”

9-A. Trogus Pompeius: “Dacians, offshoots of the Getes… ” 9-B. Justinus about the Getes, after Trogus Pompeius: “Three times they achieved the domination of Asia, but they themselves remained continuously either untouched, or undefeated by some foreign power. Darius the Persian king, they drove him out of Scythia through shameful escape; they crushed Cyrus and his whole army; Zopyrion, general of Alexander the Great, they made him disappear the same way with all of his armies; the Roman armies knew them from hearsay, they didn’t sense them. As well they founded the Parthian Empire and the Bactrian. Line of strong people, resistant to endeavors and wars, their body strength was astonishing; they didn’t do anything of what they would have feared of losing and victorious, they do not fierily want anything, except glory.”

10. Plato (427 B.C. – 347 B.C.), student of Socrates and professor to Aristotle, in the dialogue CARMIDES reveals a discussion between Socrates and Carmides, where the professor explains to Carmides what he had learned from a ‘Thracian’ doctor when he was in the army: “Zamolxis our king, who is a god, tells us that the same we ought not try to take care of our eyes without acknowledging the head, not even the head can be taken care of, without acknowledging the body. So, we have to take care of the body, as well as the soul, altogether. Here is why the Greek doctors are not experienced in many illnesses, because they do not know the whole they have to take care of. If this whole is ill, the part cannot be healthy, because all things good and bad, for the body and for the man in his wholeness, come from the soul and out of it they flow like out of a spring, from the head to the eyes. Therefore firstly, let us heal the spring of harmfulness, so that the head can enjoy health, so like the rest of the body. Friend, the soul can be healed through incantations. These incantations are the beautiful words which give birth to the wisdom within the souls.”

11. Pythagoras (580 B.C. – 495 B.C.), Law 1143: “Travel to the Getes, not to give them laws, but to learn from them. There the fields are boundless, all lands are common. And out of all peoples they are the wisest, Homer tells us.” 12. Homer in the Iliad, says about the Thracians: “Their armies were shining with golden shields and their treasures were so precious that king Priam could take back from the Greeks the head of his dead son, only after they gave them that famous golden Thracian cup.” 13. Herodotus, Histories, Book IV: “The Getes are the bravest and most righteous of Thracians.”

14.A The bishop Melito of Asia, cited by Eusebius of Caesarea in the Ecclesiastic History (175 A.D.): “The Christian philosophy, after it flourished between the barbarians, had spread in the empire.” 14.B Friedrich Hayek – Austrian philosopher: “Rumanians are the people of Europe who were born Christians.” (A few years ago the ambassador of Vatican at Bucharest, in the Academy theatre, said the same). 15. After he mentioned in his speech the troubles that Romania had gone through the communist regime, Pope John Paul the 2nd encouraged the Romanian people saying: “Romania bridge-country between the Orient and the Occident, crossroad point between Central Europe and Oriental Europe, Romania, the land that tradition names it with the beautiful title of “Saint Mary’s Garden”, I come to you in the name of ♰ Jesus Christ ♰, the Son of God and in the name of Saint Mary. In the midst of a new millennium, build your future further on the hard rock of the Holy Gospel. With the help of God you will be the protagonist of a new period of enthusiasm and courage. You will be a prosperous nation, land of good making, peaceful and sympathetic nation. May God protect you and bless you always.”

16. Miceal Ledwith (Ex-Counselor for Pope John Paul the 2nd): “Even though Latin language is the language of the Catholic Church and obviously the language of the Roman Empire much later, and as I suppose people don’t always know Rumanian is a Latin language, I think what is not often remembered is that Rumanian, or the ancestry of Rumanian is from where the Latin language came, not vice-versa. In other words Rumanian is not a Latin language, rather Latin is a Rumanian language. So, I want to salute those people from Bucegi Mountains and around Brașov and Bucharest. You are the ones who gave a great vehicle of western culture to the world (the Latin language).”

17. The Romanian scientific researcher Gabriel Gheorghe according to the University of Cambridge (The Cambridge History of India): “In the 5th millennium B.C., the Getic Carpathian space was the only space inhabited in Europe; The Carpathian, Getic or Wallachian space has represented the OFFICINA GENTIUM in antiquity, it has fueled with people and civilization, India, Persia, Greece, Italy, Germany, France and the so called Slavic space; The Vedas, the oldest literary monuments of humanity were created in the center of Europe. The primary phase of the Vedic culture began in the Carpathians, most likely in Ardeal. From Ardeal come the ancestors of Indians, Persians, Albanians, Greeks, who left for Macedonia and Thessaly, the Latins, Celts, Germans and the ancestors of Slavs, who came out through the Moravian defile.”

18. Jawaharlal Nehru, ex-Prime Minister of India (Discovery of India, Bucharest, The State Publishing House for Political Literature, 1956, p. 77 and 73): “The Vedas are the operas of Aryans who invaded the rich land of India. It is likely that the inclination towards agriculture to have been prompted by newcomers, by the Aryans who infiltrated India in successive waves, coming from Northwest.” 19. Fontes II, p. 19: The Belagines (The Divine Laws) “are the foundation of human civilization.”

20. Ludwig Schlözer (Russian Annals, 18th century): “These Volohs are not Romans, not Bulgars, not Wölsche, but Vlachs, descendants of a great and ancient bloodline of nations, of Thracians, Dacians and Getes, who even now have their own language and despite all oppressions, they live in Wallachia, Moldavia, Transylvania and Hungary in their millions.” 21. Michelet, Paris (1859), to Cuza’s emissary: “Be yourselves, don’t imitate anyone. You have under your feet, springs of living water. Do not envy the old nations, but look at yours. The deeper you will search, the more you will see life springing.”

22. Bocignoli (29.06.1524, at Răgusa): “Rumanians, about who I said that are Dacians.” 23. L.A. Gebhardi: “The Getes spoke the same language as the Dacians and had the same customs. The Greeks used to give the same name for the Getes of Bulgaria, Dacians of Moldavia, Wallachia, Transylvania and Hungary and believed that both Getes and Dacians come from Thracians.” 24. Abdolonyme Ubicini (The Origins of Rumanian History, Paris, 1866): “Dacians are the first ancestors of nowadays Rumanians. Ethnographically speaking, Dacians seem to be confused with the Getes, of the same origin, same language. About this view, all testimonies from the past agree.”

25. Carolus Lundius (Zamolxis, Primus Getarum Legislator): “It has to be clear for everyone, the ones who antiquity named them with a distinguished admiration Getes, the writers named them afterwards, through a unanimous agreement, Goths. The Greeks and other nations took letters from the Getes. We find with Herodotus and Diodorus, direct opinions about the spreading of these letters.” 26. Carlo Troya (1784 – 1858), Italian historian: “No nation of the ones mentioned by the Greeks as barbarian, has a more certain and more older history like the one of the Getes or Goths. The purpose of my work, Getic or Gothic History, is divided in two parts and one of them shows that the Getes of Zamolxis and of Decebal had been the ancestors of the Goths of Theodoric of the Amals.” 27. Paul MacKendrick (Europe, from the Atlantic to the Urals): “Burebista and Decebal created in Dacia a culture that only the narrow minded could qualify it as barbarian. Rumanians are the members of one of the most remarkable creator states of antiquity. Up in Maramureş there is a place marked as the center of the old continent.”

28. Clement of Alexandria (The Stromata, V-VI):The barbarians weren’t only the discoverers of philosophy, but also of technology, science and art. I have to go further and clarify that the Greek philosophy stole from the barbarian philosophy. Most of the peoples had their apprenticeship between the barbarians. Plato praises the barbarians and reminds, as Pythagoras did, that they learned the most numerous and beautiful teachings by living between the barbarians.”

29. The Cappadocian Strabo in his work Geography at VII, 3, writes of the world within the empire and from around, surviving until our times information about the Getae and their mato (leader): “Boerobista, 🏛️ noble GETÆ 🏛️, after taking upon himself the power over his people, set about to rebuild it after its frequent disasters. And through tireless work, moderation and discipline, he managed in a short time to create a large empire and to subdue to the Getae all neighboring peoples. The Romans even started to become uneasy when they saw him brazenly crossing the Istrus to devastate Thrace all the way to Macedonia and Illyria, desolating the Celts mixed with the Thracians and Illyrians, annihilating even the Boii of Cristasir and the Taurisci people.”

30. Jean Laumonier (The French Nationality, Paris, 1892): “The Rumanian or modern Dacian is the true Celt of Eastern Europe.” 31. Isidore of Seville (Historia de regibus Gothorum, Wundalorum et Suevorum): “Decebal’s hope had been fulfilled. The empire had been broken by the blows of the people from the Danube. Rome itself, the vanquisher of all nations, had to serve subdued and to receive the barring of the Getic triumph.” 32. Emperor Trajan (a fragment from his war journal ‘The Beautiful Dacians’): “Dacians do not present their god with a specific appearance, they honor Him just like the Parthians, in the form of a flame which burns endlessly in their temples. Because of immense respect which they show to this God and His prophet, Dacians honor the priests serving this god as well and never do they untie from their word. They give them practical lessons and instruct them even on military strategy. For the commoners to memorize more easily, they teach them by singing, these teachings and lessons about life.”

33. Japanese university professor Minoru Nambara, specialist in the history of civilizations, wrote: “Maramureș is the primordial village. It is a complex of realities that converge in feeling that here you find yourself in the primordial village. The peasants of Maramureș don’t come from anywhere. You have the feeling they came directly from the Heavens to Maramureș. In other countries you feel, you know the people came from somewhere, but here you don’t have this feeling. Here, in Maramureș, is the primordial man in his princely nobility, not primitive, in his beauty of a high civilization.” 34. In the beginning of our era, in a letter sent to the leader of Dacians – Cothyso, the Latin poet Ovid names him and his people “People descended from the Gods”. Six centuries earlier, the Greek poet Pindar, citing Phrenicus of Heraclea, wrote about the Dacians from the north of the Ister (Danube): “The Hyperboreans live in the far parts, near Apollo’s temple. They are wholly unused at war and they come, as traditions say, from the kin of the old titans.”

35. Felix Colson (1862, Nationalité Et Régénération Des Paysans Moldo-valaques): “What was the dialect spoken by Vlachs? The philologists considered it as being imported from the Roman conquerors. It is but only an assertion. The idiom of Vlachs is that of the Pelasgians. It was formed for 30 centuries. It was spoken in the Pindus Mountains as well, 100 years before the conquest of Trajan’s soldiers. In Paeonia, in Pelasgonia, in Upper Macedonia, which Aeschylus names Pelasgia, in the cantons of Epirus and Thessaly, occupied by Pelasgians, the Vlach dialect was not borrowed from the masters of the world. Quite the contrary, the Romans spoke the language of Pelasgians. It is evident that the descendants of Pelasgians who live in great numbers, of hundreds of thousands, in the mountains which were the cradle of their ancient race that populates former Dacia, still talk the national language, which in Italy gave birth to the Latin language. We are not permitted to doubt that the Pelasgian nations were not the Latin nation. Everything concurs towards proving that their dialect became the Latin language. It is indisputable the Pelasgians contributed to the foundation of Rome. The Vlach dialect preexists. Right after the Roman conquest, it spontaneously revealed itself in Dacia, in Pannonia and the Pindus. The Vlachs of Dacia and European Turkey belong to the ancient family of Pelasgians. The Vlachs were and remained Pelasgian Dacians.”

36. Robert Sheringham, De Anglorum Gentis origine disceptatio: “So even Pliny, Mela, Solinus, shows the Getes as the people of Thrace. All Thracians had been one nation, meaning the Getes, Mela confesses (1st century A.D.).” “I have shown that the weapons of the Getes had been victorious in Scythia, Thrace, Dacia, Moesia, at the Ister and the Black Sea and I said that they had different names in those regions, because of the variety of their dwellings; but all of them were named Getes, with the same name, by the Greeks and the Latins. However, these (people), with the passing of time, brought their troops and standards to the last borders of Europe, and, an even more aggressive fact, they had managed and mellowed the fiery Romans, as well as Rome itself, and it is said that they had exhausted the Roman Empire so much, that from then on it was easier to be maneuvered by other peoples out of who most of them, catching the occasion, had become brave from then on, casting away their long slavery and tiresome barring. Then, for the first time, the Getes were known by the Romans and the Greeks under the name of Goths; however, since then they are named by writers sometimes Getes, sometimes Goths.

About these (Getes/Goths), there is an absolute accordance at the old authors who lived in that time of the Gothic war;…Orosius who wrote his History during the century of the emperors Arcadius and Honorius (when the Goths, under Alaric’s rule had raided Italy), says that the Getes were of Gothic kin and that under the name of Goths they devastated the Roman Empire; soon, he says, those Getes who are now named Goths, about whom Alexander declared that they must be avoided, of whom Pyrrhus had been terrified and whom Caesar left alone, after they had all invaded the Roman provinces, because their dwellings and all their cities had been abandoned and emptied, and for a long time they had shown themselves frightening, are hoping now through appeals to obtain the association with the Romans by vow, although they could have obtained it by arms. Even Hieronymus (About faith, Book II, Chapter IV), when Ambrosius and others believe that Gog and Magog had been Goths, he confesses that the same Gog and Magog were never named Getes by the old authors…”

37. Professor Reynolds, University of Wisconsin: “The Getes, the greatest people of all Germanic peoples.” 38. Philostorgius, Ecclesiastic History (368 – 425 A.D.): “The Scythians beyond the Ister (Danube) whom the old ones named Getes and those who now call them Goths… Ulfilas was ordained bishop of the Christians from the Getic land.” 39. Hieronymus (345 – 420 A.D.): “There is authority (rightfulness) to name the Goths, Getes.” 40. Nicolao Petreio, 1695: “That the Getes were subsequently named Goths, there is no doubt.” 41. Virchow (Les peuples primitifs de l’Europe): “The Celts who inhabit present-day France came here from the Black Sea, ascending the Upper Danube.” 42. Theodor Mommsen: “Sprung from the same stalk, out of which were born the Hellenic peoples, Italics and Germanics, the Celts migrated without a doubt, so as these, from the oriental part of Europe.”

43 Edgar Cayce (The Origin of Races – Readings) READING: 364-13 (Question) Are the places designated for the beginning of the five races correct? (Answer) As we find, these are changed, in that: Those in the Gobi, the yellow. The white – rather in the Carpathians than India, though this is the change to which they are made. The red, of course, in the Atlantean and in the American. The brown in the Andean. The black in the plain and the Sudan, or in the African.

44. Dionysius the Areopagite (1st century A.D.): “The following will be about the biggest land that spreads from Asia Minor to Iberia and from Northern Africa to beyond Scandinavia […] The great land of Dacians.” (Fontes, I, p. 529) 45. The Spanish Chronicles (25 – p. 179): “The Daco-Getes are considered to be the founders of the Spaniards.” 46. Carolus Lundius (The Chronicle of the Dukes of Normandy): “The Daco-Getes are considered to be the founders of the Nordic nations.” 47. Leibniz (Collectanea Etymologica): “The Daco-Getes are considered to be the founders of the Teutons through the Saxons and Frisians, of the Dutch and Anglians.”

48. Louis de La Vallée-Poussin (Histoire du monde. Indo-européens et Indo-iraniens. L’Inde jusque vers 300 av. J.C.): “The inhabitants of northern Lower Danube can be regarded as the places of origin of Indo-European languages, meaning the ancestors of Humanity.” 49. Eugène Pittard (1917, La Roumanie – Valachie, Moldavie, Dobroudja): “The ethnic ancestors of Rumanians climb undoubtedly up to the first ages of humanity, the Rumanian Neolithic civilization representing only a recent chapter of the country’s history.” 50. Gordon V. Childe (1926, The Aryans: A Study of Indo-European Origins): “The primary places of Dacians must be searched on the territory of Romania. Indeed, the placing of the main center of formation and expansion of Indo-Europeans must be made at the north and south of the Danube.”

51. William Ryan and Walter Pitman, geologists (1995): “The place described in the Old Testament as being flooded is the one of the Black Sea.” 52. Robert Ballard, explorer (1999), confirms what William Ryan and Walter Pitman said. 53. The poet Martial in one of his epigrams wrote to Marcellin: “Soldier Marcellin, you leave now to carry on your shoulders the northern sky of Hyperboreans and the stars of the Getic Pole that are barely moving.”

54. D`Hauterive (Memoir about the old and actual state of Moldova, Academic Publishing House, p. 255-257, 1902): “Latin is far from being the trunk of languages spoken today, it could be said that it is less in the nature of the first Roman spirit, that it changed more of its first words and if I wouldn’t fear of giving a paradoxical aspect to this just observation, I would say that it is the newest of all (languages), or at least of that in whose part are found less traces of the language of peoples from whom they were born. Indeed, Latin language comes from this tongue and the other languages, especially Moldavian, are this very tongue.” 55. André Lefèvre (The Races and Languages, Paris, 1893): “The brown Celts that ethnography revealed their traces from Dacia to Armoric (Bretonnia) and Ireland, the blond Gals, peoples who spoke Indo-European dialects.”

56. Bonaventura Vulcanius of Bruges (De literis et lingua getarum sive gothorum, 1597): “The Getes had their own alphabet long before the Latin one was born. The Getes sang using the flute, the deeds of their heroes, composing songs even before the foundation of Rome, that of which Cato says – the Romans started to do much later. I cannot be silent about the fact that I have always been the admirer, more than all of the others, of this name noble by excellence, of a nation who believes in the bottom of her heart, in the immortality of souls, where by my judgement, strongly condemning death, they gain an unbounded courage to achieve anything. As we can see, the Getic peoples have been like this always from nature. This nation was and still is, a nation unique and eternal.”

57. John Mandis: “The oldest discoveries of some writing symbols were made at Turdaș and Tărtăria.” 58. Per Olof Ekström (Swedish writer): “The Rumanian language is a key-language that influenced, for the most part, all European languages.” 59. Cavasius (The Administration of the Kingdom of Transylvania): “The Rumanian language has more latinity than Italian.” 60. Leclerc (Moldo-Wallachia, Paris, 1866): “In Italy, Spain and Galia, the peoples used to speak an idiom of an older formation under the name of Rumanian language, as in the time of Cicero.” 61. Bonfini: “The language of Rumanians could not be exterminated, although they are settled in the middle of so many barbarian peoples and they fight not to leave it no matter what, as they wouldn’t fight for a life, as they do for a language.”

62. Huszti András (1791, The Old and New Dacia): “The descendants of Geto-Dacians live today where their parents lived, they speak the language their parents used to speak long ago.” 63. Jacob Grimm (The History of the German Language, 1785-1863): “The Dacian nomenclature for plants, kept by Dioscoride (Greek medic from the period of emperors Claudius and Nero) can also be found in the background of the German language.” 64. Mark Pagel, professor on Evolutionary Biology, Reading University of London: “Over 10.000 years ago, in the Carpathian region there lived a nation who spoke a unique language, precursor to Latin and Sanskrit.” 65. Prof. Fabio Scialpi: “I am intrigued by the presence on the territory of Rumania, of a number of many toponyms of Sanskrit resonance.”

66. Baudouin de Courtenay: “In Slavonic can be found many Rumanian words, especially in the language used by the Church.” 67. V. Titov, Russian archaeologist: “At Tărtăria emerged the oldest writing of humanity.” 68. Pope Nicholas the 1st to Michael the 3rd of Byzantium: “The Greeks name the Latin language, the language spoken by Scythians.” 69. Otrokocius: “That Priscus did not neglect to mention what were the languages spoken around Attila. He presumes by this, that some of the Huns, because of their links with the Romans, tried diligently to learn the Gothic language which is kindred to the Alanic and Ausonic. Whereas by Ausonic, they understand Wallachian, the corrupt Latin (vulgar).”

70. Romanian Academician Ioan Aurel Pop: “In 1592, the century when the imperial commissaries were afraid that Maramureș will unite with Moldova, the aristocrats gathered a council at Târgul Sighetului and judged the situation of the borderlines of the village Borșa, which is close to the peaks of the mountains and its frontier fixed to Moldova. In this document from 1592, its editor who was a Magyar humanist, says: “Nothing I can do now, because I cannot give you the decision in Latin, since these people speak Sermo-Geticus.”, meaning the Getic language.” 71. Clémence Royer (The Bulletin of the Anthropological Society, Paris, 1879): “That the Celts, the Germans and even Latins come from Eastern Europe, I admit and believe. But on the contrary, all legends, all traditions of the historic Aryans of Asia shows them as coming from the Occident. On one side like on the other, we have to search for their common cradle at the lower Danube, in this Pelasgian Thrace that its language we ignore.”

72. Marco Merlini, Italian archaeologist, about the Tărtăria tablets and the bones found along with them: “The bones, as well as the tablets are very old. It is a certainty. It is our turn to think that writing began in Europe, 2.000 years before the Sumerian writing. In Romania we have a great treasure, but it does not belong only to Romania, but to the whole of Europe.”

73. Harald Haarmann, German savant:The oldest writing in the world is that of Tărtăria – Romania. The Danubian Civilization is the first great civilization in history, preceding by thousands of years the Sumerian civilization.”
