Rose of nijmegen online
The primordial rose that bloomed at the cradle of our civilization was a simple, wild flower with five or seven fragrant petals around a tuft of stamens. In the northern hemisphere, wild roses were found wherever the climate was mild and the soil fertile. The bloom lasted only a few weeks, from May to early June, yet these insubstantial flowers left their mark on every civilization within this climatic zone.
References in ancient writings show that the rose can be associated with Buddha, Visjnoe, Confucius and Mohammed. Especially within Islam, the rose held a prominent place: according to tradition, the rose originated from a drop of sweat on the forehead of the Prophet Muhammad during his journey to heaven. Within Western culture, roses were already loved by the Romans, who grew them for their utility and pleasure. They hung roses from the ceiling and what was said ‘under the rose’ (sub rosa) had to remain ‘within these four walls’. In Medieval Christianity the white lily and the rose had a symbolic value; the red rose stood for the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and the blood spilled by martyrs.

The Eternal RoseMillions of years before man was born, roses were already blooming on earth.That makes her old enough for a history, with which experts could fill entire libraries.The oldest fossil rose petals found in the United States (in the state of California) must be about 40 million years old.
The wild plants in general were already cultivated in ancient times for special purposes.For example, the Greeks embalmed their dead heroes with rose oil and the Romans thought, that the scent of roses, kept diseases at bay.Romans also crowned their victorious fieldmen with roses.The Persians were already known for the production of rose oil.

This poster is part of the ‘De Roos Collection’, named after the estate of Jan de Roos, born in Leeuwarden on 1 March 1902 and deceased on 10 January 1986. De Roos acquired the poster material during the war partly through his work at the town hall of Achtkarspelen, where he managed to get his hands on posters issued by the Dutch and German governments. Sometimes De Roos would take posters that had just been hung up off the wall, or he would ask the administrators of the distribution points for copies of the proclamations and regulations that had just arrived.
