I believe The Falcon was a contribution made by a Habsburg Monarch, thus the name. The Habsburg Castle was named “hawk’s castle” and falcon’s castle.
“Count Radbot builds himself a castle, in 1020, on a promontory overlooking the river Aar to the west of Zürich. Perhaps because of its high position, it becomes known as Habichtsburg – ‘hawk’s castle’. From this fortress Radbot’s family later acquire their name, as the Habsburgs.”
I believe I have been ordained to reconcile the split between the Protestant and Catholic religions so that God can do battle with His enemies. The Swan Brethren admitted members of the new Protestant religion. A life-size statue of William ‘The Silent’ graces the façade of their meeting hall. Godschalk Rosemondt was the executor of Pope Adrian and built ‘The Pope’s College’ as his good friend instructed. Adrian came to believe only poor boys should be raised up to rule the Vatican. He hated the excesses of the Medicis. Pope Francis is the embodiment of this humble vision that my ancestor carried forth.
My Democracy was not founded as a sanctuary for the Rich, as is the claim of the false Evangelical cosmology invented in Ireland in 1840 by John Darby. Our Democracy was grounded upon the ideal of Pope Adrian, that was inspired by the teaching of Jesus;
“The meek shall inherit the earth.”
There are four colleges that make up Louvain. I believe Pope Adrien bid the heads of noble houses to build and fund buildings made for the education of ‘The Poor of the World’. Above is my kindred’s book ‘Confessionals’ that is signed with the image of a rose followed by “mondt”. The seller of this rare book describes the other image as a Habsburg cote of arms with “The Falcon” written under it. The Habsburg Family were great patrons of the arts. This may be proof they competed with the Medicis for this title. If so, you are reading one of the greatest cultural discoveries in the West. That the people of Holland voted against a populist, believing his ilk were out to destroy Dutch and European culture, is the cultural event of the ages, as you will see.

Two centuries later Radbot’s descendants are counts of Zürich, with extensive rights over the entire region around Lake Lucerne – comprising the territories of Schwyz, Uri, Unterwalden and Lucerne. These Swiss cantons, the original heart of the Habsburg inheritance, are gradually lost from 1291. But by then a Habsburg count, Rudolf, has won more extensive territories for the family.
The ‘College de Valk’ is located in the center of Leuven. It was founded shortly after the University itself (1425), by Jan Stockelpot († 1465), professor of arts, at House De Valk, located in the Penninkstraat (now called ‘Savoiestraat’, a street off the Tiensestraat). De Valk is actually an old pedagogy rather than a college. At the University of Leuven, colleges were initially buildings used for student housing, usually founded by a rich patron who invited less wealthy students from specific faculties or regions to live there. ‘De Valk’ is one of the four pedagogies of the Arts Faculty (de Lelie, de Valk, de Burcht, het Varken; or, in English: the Lily, the Falcon, the Fortress, and the Pig), however, primarily functioned as teaching institutions. Today De Valk houses the Faculty of Law.
‘College de Valk’ is composed of an auditorium ‘Auditorium Zeger Van Hee’ with a capacity of 200 people and other smaller conference rooms. Our symposium’s morning plenary sessions will be held in the ‘Auditorium Zeger Van Hee’ whereas the afternoon sessions in two parallel conference rooms located nearby (2 min of walk). Next to the conference rooms and the ‘Auditorium Zeger Van Hee’, the session breaks and lunches will be held on the same location as the poster session and the exhibitors’ boots.
Ooms, Jean Baptiste a Belgian mystical writer, was born at Ghele, in Brabant, near the middle of the 17th century. He studied at Falcon. College, Louvain, and became professor of theology at Ghent. He was made archpriest of the deanery of that city June 18, 1694, and confessor of the Capuchin nuns.
During the ancien régime, each of these pedagogies had its own coat of arms. The Falcon’s was made of gold and represented a falcon, probably depicted in its natural color, sitting on a branch. Its motto was: “volitat super omnia falcothe” (falcon soars over everything).
