Category:Emblemata[edit]

Hello. The term Emblemata is frequently used to mean emblem books. See for example [1], [2], [3]. If emblemata can mean something else in other contexts, could you please give the exact definition? In this case, we should split the category, because Category:Emblemata is a subcategory of category:Printmaking or category:16th-century books, which is not relevant for the files you want to include in this category. Neverthless, if emblemata is sometimes used just as a synonym of emblem or allegory, I do not think it is useful to create an extra category. Best regards, BrightRaven (talk) 12:19, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

OK. I understand your point of view: you mean that emblemata is a synonym of emblem. Nevertheless, I want to stress the fact that generally emblemata means emblem book and not simply emblem. In order to solve this problem, I propose the following:
  1. Create Category:Emblem books;
  2. Transform Category:Emblemata in a category redirect to Category:Emblems or Category:Emblem books.
Do you agree? BrightRaven (talk) 11:11, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Additionnal proposition: I think we also should create Category:Renaissance and Baroque emblems. BrightRaven (talk) 11:19, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
I think Category:Emblem books would be more explicit and avoid any confusion. BrightRaven (talk) 20:16, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

recent uploads[edit]

Hi. Noticed you've been uploading a lot of artwork and listing the author as yourself. You may have taken the pictures, but the author is the painter. Also, if they are old paintings then the license should be PD-art. I urge you to go back and correct the author (painter) if you know who it is. Add a date for the work (when they were painted) and correct the license. Thanks. – JBarta (talk) 13:12, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

The paintings are from the 18th century. At this time I don't know the painter. I need some time for research and when I know who it is, I'll correct the author (painter), add a date for the work and correct the license. Thanks for your support. --Hermetiker (talk) 13:51, 17 February 2013 (UTC)


I was wondering if you had an English translation for the panel of the "Amptman" from Jakob Heibeler's Totenkanz?

Regrettably, I can't offer you an English translation at the moment.The text in question dates from the 16th century and is written in an archaic form of German which is partly unintelligible to the uninitiated German native speaker of today. --Hermetiker (talk) 20:14, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
