Eagle and Child  - ‘Aquila and Antinous’

The Star Constellation was named by Roman Emperor Hadrian in 132AD to commemorate the loss of the love of his life – Antinous his boyfriend.

 

heweliusz-aql-scutum-del-sobiescian.jpg.ed20e598e625a4b2b10b234ade01eae5.jpg

Two pubs in Oxford and Cambridge with strong connections….

 

 

i) The Eagle and Child in St Giles' Street, Oxford is owned by St. John'sCollege, Oxford and before that UniversityCollege since the 17th century. The pub had been part of an endowment belonging to UniversityCollege since the 17th century. It has associations with the Inklings writers' group which included J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.

 

 

ii) The Eagle, Cambridge. Originally opened in 1667 as the "Eagle and Child". The site is owned by Corpus ChristiCollege.

 

 

Aquila (Latin for Eagle and symbolic of Hadrian) and Antinous his boyfriend.

Antinous (pronounced ‘anti-no-us’) was the boy lover of the Roman Emperor Hadrian and hence is a real character, not a mythological one, although the story reads like fiction. Antinous was born c. AD 110 in the town of Bythinium (also called Claudiopolis), near present-day Bolu in north-western Turkey. At that time this area was a Roman province, and Hadrian is thought to have met Antinous during an official visit. Hadrian, the first openly gay Roman Emperor, was smitten by the boy and groomed him to become his constant companion.

 

 

Hadrian’s happiness did not last long, though. While on a trip up the Nile in AD 130, Antinous drowned near the present-day town of Mallawi in Egypt. Supposedly an oracle had predicted that the Emperor would be saved from danger by the sacrifice of the object he most loved, and Antinous realized that this description applied to him.

 

 

Whether the drowning was accident, suicide, or even ritual sacrifice, Hadrian was heartbroken by it. He founded a city called Antinoöpolis near the site of the drowning, declared Antinous a god, and commemorated him in the sky from stars south of Aquila, the Eagle, that had not previously been considered part of any constellation.

 

Ref: http://www.ianridpath.com/startales/antinous.htm

 

 

As of 2005 there were 25 pubs in the UK named the ‘Eagle and Child’

 

 

Antinous was mentioned as a sub-division of Aquila in Ptolemy’s Almagest, although it is not included among the canonical 48 Greek figures. Ptolemy worked at Alexandria at the mouth of the Nile and he compiled the Almagest about 20 years after the famous drowning so he would have known the story; indeed, he might have had a hand in creating the constellation, possibly at Hadrian’s request. According to Ptolemy, Antinous consisted of six stars, which we now know as Eta, Theta, Delta, Iota, Kappa, and Lambda Aquilae.

 

 

The constellation’s first known depiction was in 1536 on a celestial globe by the German mathematician and cartographer Caspar Vopel (1511–61); it was shown again in 1551 on a globe by Gerardus Mercator. Tycho Brahe listed it as a separate constellation in his star catalogue of 1602 and it remained widely accepted into the 19th century, when it was eventually remerged with Aquila.

The Dolphin – Delphinus (Latin for Dolphin)

 

hevel-delphin-eqvuleus-sagitta-antinous.jpg.4df6d1cf3fa297b69436d2d13d1b7eca.jpg

Delphinus was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd century astronomer Ptolemy, and it remains among the 88 modern constellations recognized by the International Astronomical Union. It is one of the smaller constellations, ranked 69th in size.

Ye Olde Dolphin Inne AD 1530 – Derby’s Oldest Pub

Derby – not really a coastal city so why name the oldest pub in Derby after a Dolphin?

1743630551_DerbytoSkegness97miles.jpg.905bf8ea5038ddde571d1d48cbe3bd79.jpg

Skegness - Miles from Derby: 97

ColwynBay - Miles from Derby: 113.

Scarborough - Miles from Derby: 118.

Blackpool - Miles from Derby: 120.

 

The Earls of Derby (the Stanleys) dating from the 15th Century adopted the ‘Eagle and Child’ on their Coats of Arms.

On closer examination of the star charts, what’s the next best thing to Aquila and Antinous (the Eagle and Child)?

The Golden Fleece (York) was mentioned in the York City Archives as far back as 1503.

Ref: Garrison, Gordon G. (5 May 2002). "Travel: Step back in time in York". St. Petersburg Times. Retrieved 6 December 2012.

The Duke of Wellington and Napoléon Bonaparte on the Same Team?

In 1805, Napoléon Bonaparte (1769 – 1821) was inducted into the Order of the Golden Fleece.

In 1812, Arthur Wellesley (Duke of Wellington) was inducted into the same Order.

The Battle of Waterloo, was fought on Sunday, 18 June 1815, near Waterloo in present-day Belgium, then part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. A French army under the command of Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated by two of the armies of the Seventh Coalition: a British-led Allied army under the command of the Duke of Wellington, and a Prussian army under the command of Field Marshal Blücher. The battle marked the end of the Napoleonic Wars.

Pub Crawls – the Original ‘Star Trek’

.726470484_startrek.jpg.687689ee21926fd9bfcfc4cf7e656ffc.jpg

 

In the ‘Star Trek’ TV Series, the Captain of the Star Ship Enterprise was:

 

James T Kirk.

 

James’ middle name was Tiberius as in the Roman Emperor.

 

‘Breaking the Spell’ gives:

 

King James (Royalty), Tiberius (Roman Empire), Kirk (Scottish Church, Religion).

Religion, Royalty and the Roman Empire are the real architects behind modern British Pub Culture.

 

 

The Christian (Roman Catholic) Bible is based on Stellar Theology.

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are the 4 Seasons.

King James I of England (VI of Scotland) (1566 to 1625)

 

The Declaration of Sports (also known as the Book of Sports) was a declaration by James I of England issued just for Lancashire in 1617, nationally in 1618, and reissued by Charles I in 1633. It listed the sports and recreations that were permitted on Sundays and other holy days.

 

Drinking ‘CHURCH-ALES’ was one of the pleasures permitted on a Sunday

 

The promotion of ‘British Pub Culture’ had begun….Red Lions and Bull's Heads usually in close proximity to Churches...

This is incredibly fascinating, and to think up until now I had no idea of the significance or relevance of the various pub names that are repeated up and down the country.

On 8/4/2019 at 1:42 PM, Prince Arthur said:

Derby – not really a coastal city so why name the oldest pub in Derby after a Dolphin?

 

It's an interesting question, and one that can be asked here in Birmingham too.

 

It no longer stands, but there was a Dolphin Inn on the Warwick Road in Acocks Green, Birmingham, the site of which is now an Aldi supermarket. The name lives on in the form of Dolphin Lane, which joins the Warwick Road next to where the old inn used to stand, the opposite side of the road is where you'll now find the Dolphin Fish Bar, a popular fish'n'chip shop.

 

The Warwick Road in Acocks Green also boasts a Wetherspoons by the name of "The Spread Eagle" and up until 2016/17 a "Red Lion", which was demolished in 2018 so that Morrisons could expand their car park.

 

I never knew the significance of 'Seven Stars' either - growing up in Oldbury, there was (and still is) a 'Seven Stars Road', which I always thought was an odd name for a road. Now I know there did use to be a pub of the same name located there.

 

The full PDF is well worth a read, just goes to show there is Masonic symbolism everywhere, even without realising it.
