outlaw.adjective
Word history: the word outlaw brings to mind cattle rustlers and gunslingers of the Wild West, but it comes to us from a much earlier time, when guns were not yet invented but cattle stealing was. Outlaw can be traced back to an Old Norse word meaning 'out log', which meant 'banish'; Scandinavians, who invaded and settled in England during the 8th through the 11th century, gave us this Old English word which designated someone who because of criminal acts must give up his property to the crown and could be killed without recrimination. The legal.status of the outlaw became less severe over the course of the Middle Ages. However, the looser use of the word to designate criminals in general, lives on in tales of the Wild West.

Ottoman Empire.was centered in what is now Turkey, founded in the late 13th century and dismantled in the early 20th century. At its height in the mid-1500s, at the end of the reign of Suleiman I, the Ottoman Empire controlled a vast area extending from the Balkan Peninsula to the Middle East and North Africa. The empire went into slow decline after Suleiman and by the early 1900s it controlled only Asia Minor, the Anatolia region of present-day Turkey and parts of the Balkans and the Middle East. The Ottomans lost even more territory during World War I 1914-1918. Antioch known as Antakya in modern history was where the name 'Christian' first was heard. This city, was captured by the Turks in 1516 A.D. and it remained a part of the Ottoman Empire until shortly after World War I in 1914-1918.....comprised from Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.
