Annaberg-Buchholz, Bust and Museum of Adam Ries

Adam Ries, who was a German arithmetician, was born in 1492 or 1493 in Staffelstein (Upper Franconia). In 1522 he moved into the new city Annaberg dominated by mining, where he spent the rest of his life (died 1559 probably in Annaberg) and operated a private calculation school in St John's Lane. This house is now home of "his" Museum. Ries didn't wrote his works - as was customary - in Latin, but in German. He reached a large audience and contributed also the unification of the German language. The best known is his textbook, "Rechenung auff der linihen und federn".

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
