As it flew, an idea formed itself in the Procurator's mind, which was now bright and clear. It was this: the hegemon had examined the case of the vagrant philosopher Yeshua, surnamed Ha-Notsri, and could not substantiate the criminal charge made against him. In particular he could not find the slightest connection between Yeshua's actions and the recent disorders in Jerusalem. The vagrant philosopher was mentally ill, as a result of which the sentence of death pronounced on Ha-Notsri by the Lesser Sanhedrin would not be confirmed. But in view of the danger of unrest liable to be caused by Yeshua's mad, utopian preaching, the Procurator would remove the man from Jerusalem and sentence him to imprisonment in Caesarea Stratonova on the Mediterranean — the place of the Procurator's own residence. It only remained to dictate this to the secretary.

First, it is "Мастер", pronounced like "master"  Big grin

And the sig is a passage from an extraordinary example of 20th century Russian fiction, Мастер и Маргарита (Master and Margarita), by Михаил Афанасьевич Булгаков (Mikhail Afanasivich Bulgakov).  I have taken my new username from the title of this book.  The Master inhabits a mental institution, where everyone has forgotten his name; he is therefore known simply as "the Master."

The Master, having won the lottery, wrote a book, which is the true story of Pontius Pilate; his version is rather different from the standard accounts.  However, his book was condemned by the Soviet authorities, driving the Master mad.  Bulgakov's book alternates between chapters taking place in 20th century Moscow (where the mysterious foreigner, Woland, has suddenly appeared, wreaking havoc), and chapters set in 1st century Jerusalem, which are mostly chapters from the Master's book.

The particular passage in my sig is found early on, and is part of Woland's account (Woland, speaking in 20th century Moscow, claims to have witnessed events in 1st century Jerusalem personally) of the story of the Procurator and the vagrant philosopher, Jeshua ha'Nosri (Jesus of Nazareth).  His account confirmed down to the last detail the account set forth in the Master's book.
