Not the current day Macedonian.

By Macedonian I mean the Macedonians of Macedon, the ancient kingdom of Philip II and Alexander the Great. That area is now divided among the current day Macedonia, Greece and Bulgaria. back when Alexander went on his conquest- his people came to my country and were stopped there. Alexander then planned to go back but the journey was so long that a few of his men just stayed behind and lived their life there. It Was the end of their journey and obviously their seed was left. So in a very minuscule fraction, I do have a bit of their blood coursing through my veins. Thats why I named myself Macedonian. Its such an obscure fact that I'm sure nobody would get it.

I suppose that would be their current day equivalent. They often depict a scribe of some sort writing history down in fiction, mostly around the medieval times. Whether or not they existed is beyond me.

yes the scribes u talk about they are the most important - they stated the facts and made the current history and here i have to say if they hadn't exsited then, we wouldn't have had disscutions right now about Alexander the Great and his deeds, also about Darius or Nero or The Library from Alexandria. We have the Chronicles of Manasses and Euthymus Zigabenus (an Armenian scribe and historian) let's not forget Anna Comnena (from this point of view she can be thought as a scribe!) and lots and lots of other......so don't say u have doubts about them - "Whether or not they existed is beyond me"

i have no doubt that there were scribes, what I have doubts about is the particular medieval scribe they often depict in fiction.

I don't mean to interrupt but, all the scribes were human weren't they? So it is very difficult to stay completely objective on matters sometimes and that bias can sometimes change the stories, not necessarily if they wanted to or not.

Well I suppose somebody would be writing down information on either side. That way, when the final history would be written- they compare the notes, eliminate the bollix and give us the facts. It's hard to eliminate bias though and usually, dependant on your country, it does show up.

any source, for hundreds of years the way stories were past down was through telling of the story, its kind of like whisper down the lane with a little bias thrown in for good measure

of course nobody denies it, in fact we were talking about their factual existence and also the kid (kid=Macedonian) is right, let's just say that is not only by "whispering down the lane", it's also by writting down the facts - in an objective or subjective manner (though the facts were stared more in an subjective manner, but also if u take the facts stated by the opposite side u cam have an almost correct image of facts and events)

u mean the chronicler's they depict in movies and novels? well of course half of what we see is fictional and half is the truth and i think that makes the things more interesting! we have the possibility to solve an infinity of ecuation

Okay okay back on subject guys. If you want to talk about scribes, by all means make a new topic. It would fit in.
