Plus, the initial character of Calpurnia can’t be adequately demonstrated without the scene of her bringing the Finches to the church. To sum up, Calpurnia needed to be in the movie
Anne Bradstreet’s difficulty with accepting her faith revolves around her devotion to her husband. She had a different approach to expressing her faith than many other Puritans. Bradstreet followed her religion in hopes that her actions would lead to her husband being brought to salvation. She expresses these actions when writing, “That when we live no more, we may live ever.”(Bradstreet 12). This line suggests that she desires for their love to live an impossible length.
A black woman named Lula states to Calpurnia as she is bringing Jem and Scout to church, “ You ain't got no business bringing’ white children- they have their church and we got ours. Its our church ain't it miss Cal?” This illustrates that even some of the black citizens held racial discriminate views.

According to Abigail Archer, who wrote Elizabeth I, during Edward’s reign, Elizabeth was treated affectionately by Edward, and he welcomed her on occasional visits to court. However, during Mary’s reign Elizabeth suffered. Abigail Archer suggest that “Mary’s attitude toward Elizabeth veered from friendship to suspicion and back.” (Archer n.p.) This could be for the reasons mentioned before, she did not trust her due to her faith after Elizabeth’s birth and that they believe in different religions. Abigail Archer also suggests that “Mary intended to return England to Catholicism, but she knew Elizabeth was a least tolerant of Protestantism, and therefore posed a risk.” (Archer n.p.)

In the beginning of “Margery Kempe”, a spiritual autobiography, Kempe uses imagery to portray her devotion to God as well as the process of moving away from her wifely duties. The nature of her relationship with Christ is all consuming. Kempe has been trying to persuade her husband to let her leave after the death of her first child. After unsuccessful tries, Kempe finally has convinced her husband to let her leave him after having fourteen children. “And make my body free to God, so that you never make any claim on me requesting any conjugal debt after this day as long as you live— and shall eat and drink on Fridays at your bidding.” (NA 431) Once Kempe leaves she begins her spiritual journey and embarks on many pilgrimages.
During the early to mid-nineteenth century women’s roles were seen to be confined to domestic affairs, but this phase would only lead to a stronger voice for women coming from within the home. The Second Great Awakening in the early 1800’s sparked a need for religion in the American culture. Women dominantly filled the churches leaving men to fend the vices of the world alone. In efforts to bring religion back, a new role for women was formed, the Cult of True Womanhood (Ginzberg 8). The ideal woman of this time period was a pure, feminine, and submissive woman that was always considered inferior to men mentally and physically (Lavender 1).
Living in a predominately Caucasian neighborhood that were Christians and Catholics, in Lakewood, Colorado, I was exposed to many friends that are these religions. Therefore, they would ask me to go to church with them to watch performances that their church is putting on. I would go to these church events, even though I am Buddhist because I wanted to be exposed to other religions and see how they worship their god. Although I never thought about changing my religion, I do find it interesting how differently my religion is to everyone else’s. My parents never knew I went to other church events because they are strict about me just being in temples.
