Sobriquet[ edit ] The only authentic lifetime portrait of Ivan IV, embossed on the binding of the first-printed Apostle of The English word terrible is usually used to translate the Russian word grozny in Ivan's nickname, but this is a somewhat archaic translation. The Russian word grozny reflects the older English usage of terrible as in "inspiring fear or terror; dangerous; powerful; formidable". It does not convey the more modern connotations of English terrible, such as "defective" or "evil".
The overall design goals emphasise generality and precision in expressing propositions about any topic, rather than conformity to any particular processing model: Exactly what is considered to be the 'meaning' of an assertion in RDF or RDFS in some broad sense may depend on many factors, including social conventions, comments in natural language or links to other content-bearing documents.
Much of this meaning will be inaccessible to machine processing and is mentioned here only to emphasize that the formal semantics described in this document is not intended to provide a full analysis of 'meaning' in this broad sense; that would be a large research topic.
The semantics given here restricts itself to a formal notion of meaning which could be characterized as the part that is common to all other accounts of meaning, and can be captured in mechanical inference rules. This document uses a basic technique called model theory for specifying the semantics of a formal language.
Readers unfamiliar with model theory may find the glossary in appendix B helpful; throughout the text, uses of terms in a technical sense are linked to their glossary definitions. Model theory assumes that the language refers to a ' world ', and describes the minimal conditions that a world must satisfy in order to assign an appropriate meaning for every expression in the language.
A particular world is called an interpretationso that model theory might be better called 'interpretation theory'. The idea is to provide an abstract, mathematical account of the properties that any such interpretation must have, making as few assumptions as possible about its actual nature or intrinsic structure, thereby retaining as much generality as possible.
The chief utility of a formal semantic theory is not to provide any deep analysis of the nature of the things being described by the language or to suggest any particular processing model, but rather to provide a technical way to determine when inference processes are validi.
This provides the maximal freedom for implementations while preserving a globally coherent notion of meaning. Model theory tries to be metaphysically and ontologically neutral.
It is typically couched in the language of set theory simply because that is the normal language of mathematics - for example, this semantics assumes that names denote things in a set IR called the ' universe ' - but the use of set-theoretic language here is not supposed to imply that the things in the universe are set-theoretic in nature.
Model theory is usually most relevant to implementation via the notion of entailmentdescribed later, which makes it possible to define valid inference rules. An alternative way to specify a semantics is to give a translation from RDF into a formal logic with a model theory already attached, as it were.
This 'axiomatic semantics' approach has been suggested and used previously with various alternative versions of the target logical language [.SERBIA v Updated 29 May RETURN TO INDEX. TABLE OF CONTENTS. INTRODUCTION..

The Church of Rome fell for its heresy; the gates of the second Rome, Constantinople, were hewn down by the axes of the infidel Turks; but the Church of Moscow, the Church of the New Rome, shines brighter than the sun in the whole universe.
The Fight for Survival. The empire's loss of territory was offset to a degree by consolidation and an increased uniformity of rule. The emperor Heraclius fully Hellenized the empire by making Greek the official language, thus ending the last remnants of Latin and ancient Roman tradition within the Empire.
