8 Wedding Traditions
According to the dictionary, the definition of traditions is the transmission of customs or beliefs from generation to generation. Wedding traditions work much in the same way. Some have been passed down from the Middle Ages, even though they have changed. A few have changed enough that it is hard to see where they first originated from. While weddings are all unique and different, there are many western traditions that are common enough that almost everyone has heard about them. So where did they come from?
The Doryphoros (Spear Bearer) (Fig.1) is a sculpture designed by the Greek Polykleitos’s, an artist originally from Argos or Sicyon, who worked in bronze in the classical style around 450-440 BCE. Although it bears elements of Greek aesthetics it is a Roman copy of a bronze sculpture that has been melted down and lost. This complicates the nature of the statue and where it relates to art and art history, whether it can be considered a Greek statue if it is a Roman copy and interpretation. To fully understand and analyze the sculpture, viewers must consider the differences between the original piece and the copy, the accuracy of the copies and the Roman influence on them, and comparisons between the Doryphoros and other sculptures that are copies.

Monsters on the Edge
During the Medieval Ages people often used images to illustrate the contrast between good vs. evil, especially in religious contexts. Some of these images include a collection of creatures of mythological origins that are coined the “monstrous races”, a term that has recently been considered problematic. These monsters are often seen on the edges or borders of maps and Romanesque churches. They are used as a symbol for the unknown edge of the world which can include existing cultures and people, and act as a counterpoint for the center of the known Christian world. When viewing the creatures in this context it is important to consider whether race is a proper term to use when talking about the monsters or whether a different phrase should be utilized.
Eugenics in the United States
During the Progressive Era, between 1896 to 1927, there was an increase in the interest in eugenics within the United States. During this time people strove to try to solve various societal problems including poverty, health issues, and immigration. Eugenic enthusiasts attempted to link these social and economic problems to individuals deemed “undesirable”. This segregation between “normal” people and “undesirables” included anyone associated with society’s problems and were often looked at as the cause of them. They were considered mentally deficient or “feeble-minded”.
