Peace Monuments By Year

2,000 Peace Monuments
By Year

I tried to find an image related to time to introduce this section & finally chose Ozymandias, the 1818 poem by Percy Bysshe Shelly [1792-1822]. It's about the vanity of monument builders & warns that monuments (and the "works" they represent) often secumb to the ravages of time. History speculates that Shelley was inspied by the imminent arrival in London of a 7.25-ton fragment removed in 1816 from the from the mortuary temple of Ramesses in Thebes (Eqypt).

As someone familiar with peace monuments, I prefer to think that Shelley was poking fun at the 6 sovereigns & 5 heads of government who gathered in Oxford in 1814 to celebrate Napoleon's first defeat. They & their institutions have long since disappeared, but -- unlike Ozymandias' "trunkless legs of stone & shattered visage" -- the two small peace monuments they planted in 1814 are still intact & stand where the sovereigns intended for them to be in the City of Oxford (England).

Go to Peace Monuments by Year to access separate files for recent years (1981-2017) & collective files for all earlier years. These files show WHEN peace monuements were dedicated throughout history.

Theoretically, there should be the same number of peace monuments in the BY YEAR section of this website as in the BY NATION section. (Most monuments have just one location & one year of dedication.) But the number of monuments shown here BY YEAR (about 2,000) falls far short of the number of monuments in the BY NATION section (about 3,300). This is due to a number of reasons. One reason is the sheer amount of labor required to obtain the date of dedication & to insure that every monument description contains both its place & its date of dedication. But the biggest reason, I think, is the fact that many on-line monument descriptions omit the monument's date but rarely omit its location. I have estimated many years of dedication, but additional research & editing are required.

Invitation

If you find these web pages interesting, you are cordially invited to help create & maintain them.

Almost anyone could submit information about a peace monument (or peacemaker) known to YOU.

A STUDENT in need of a research project or a RETIREE in search of an interesting avocation could take on one or more parts of this website. No one has all of the skills (research, photography, travel, database management, writing, fund-raising, social media & website creation -- among others) needed to make this website achieve its full potential. But YOU could contibute what you do best, and others could contribute what they do best.

Together, we could make this website BLOOM -- and help save the world from war & violence. Is this too big an ambition? I don't think so. Everyone has to do what he or she can. That's the only way we can make progress toward our goal of a world without violence & injustice, i.e. toward PEACE.

Eventually -- possibly in just a few months or years -- the time & attention of the guy who started "Peace Monuments Around the World" will fade, and his creation will EITHER disappear OR live on in the hands of one or more successors. Which shall it be?

If any of this interests you (even a small part), please contact Ted Lollis in any of the ways shown on the CONTACT page. Start a low-key dialogue. No obligation. Don't delay! Do so TODAY!
