De Valk – The Falcon College

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.

College de Valk


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).

    My friend, Mark Gall, was the head of the Department of Education at the University of Oregon, and wrote the difninitive book on how to educate educators. If aspects of the Buck Iinstitute was relocated to Eugene, then a new book can be authored on how poor students can be bettered in a nation that is waging war on the poor. I am suggeting a Fraternity of Poor Students who can come up with solutions to student loans and lack of health insurance. esteeming poor students is vital to changing old systems that tend to defend their status – at all cost. Such was the case of the Spanish Inquisition that came to roost in the Netherlands. “ 1153/ To Godschalk Rosemondt Louvain 18 October 1520
    Gottschalk Rosemondt of Eindhoven in Northern Brabant, matriculated
    at the University of Louvain on 1499 and remained there until his
    death in 1526. A doctor of divinity in 1516, he succeeded in 1520 to
    the chair o f theology formerly held by Jan Briart. Like Briart he
    was a personal friend of the future Pope Adrian V1. His prominent
    position in the theological faculty notwithstanding , he retained an
    mind towards humanists studies and a measure of sympathy for
    Erasmus. This letter is addressed to him in his capacity as rector
    of the university for the winter term of 1520-21 (cf Matricule de
    Louvain 111-1963) It was published in the Epistolae ad diverse.In
    preparation for a confrontations with the theologian Nicolass
    Baechem Egmondanus, to be held in the presence of the rector,
    Erasmus launches an elaborate protest against his opponent, who had
    attacked him from the pulpit of St, Peter’s church on 9 and 14
    cf Ep 1162s1162/ To Thomas More Louvain November? 1520
    This letter give a spirited account between Erasmus and Nicolas
    Egmondanus before the rector of the of the university of Louvain,
    Godschlak Rosemondt. Printed in the Epistle ad diverse, it was no
    doubt composed with a wider public in mind; Thomas More, to whom it
    is addressed, need not have been told at length an episode of which
    he was himself a protagonist. Erasmus also described the
    confrontation with Baecahmen in Ep 1173:29-109
