Founding of the People's Army of North Korea

The founding of the People's Army of North Korea in 1932 is marked every year with a national public holiday. The main celebration takes place in the capital city of Pyongyang and includes oratorical meetings, where various officials praise the army's exploits. Public displays can also include parades, gun-salutes, fireworks, choruses, dance displays, and drum-beating. While many sources list February 8, 1948, as the army's official start-date, the North Korean government observes 1932 as the date of the army's founding. More...

La Marseillaise, French National Anthem, Is Composed (1792)

Written and composed by French army officer Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle in 1792, La Marseillaise was adopted in 1795 as France's first anthem.

It is particularly significant in Christian theology, where it is used to describe the role of Jesus as the principle of God active in the creation and ordering of the cosmos. What is the literal meaning of the word "Logos"? More...
