People began to assert themselves against blind faith and useless religious rituals and began to feel that they could reach God without the intermediary of a priest. Instead of one Pope, two Popes began to be elected one by the French Cardinals and the other by the Italian Cardinals. Solution: With recognition of the reformers criticism and acceptance of their ideology Protestants were able to put their beliefs on display in art.
Many of the people of England had been dissatisfied with the Catholic church. The citizens of England believed that the Catholic Church 's officials were abusing their power for political gain. Plus, many members of Henry VIII 's court saw a potential split from the Catholic church as politically advantageous. One of the major effects on England after Henry VIII broke from the Catholic church was the diffusing of the religious power in England that had previously been
If it weren’t for these rebellions, what else would inspire the country to fight for liberation. uprisings gave the people of Ireland reason to believe they could make a difference even when they resented other religions. The 1798 rebellion may have lacked some logic but it was extremely potent with regards to modern
Every general election which has been held in Ireland since receiving it’s independence in 1922 has been under the system known as; Proportional Representation through a single transferable vote (PR-STV). The system came to Ireland as it was popular with British electoral reformers in the late 19th century and was seen as a solution which would assist with the crisis that was Home Rule. PRSTV was deemed to be particularly appropriate to this case as it guaranteed minority representation. The president of the Proportional Representation (PR) Party in Britain came to Dublin to give a lecture on the voting system and this resulted in the formation of a PR Society in Ireland of which Arthur Griffith, Irish nationalist and founder of the political party Sinn Fein was a member. This event played a key role in moulding the future of electoral law in Ireland as it meant that there was strong support for PR in favour of the British single member plurality (SMP) system.
Oscar Wilde, Irish writer, theatrically said in 1891 that “progress has been made” because of “disobedience and... rebellion.” Furthermore, Wilde argues that disobedience is man's original virtue. Disobedience of law led to the American Revolution, desegregation, and improved civil rights across the board, proving that Wilde is correct. However, Wilde's claim ignores disobedience or the law that is regressive and detrimental to the health of the public, such as the Confederacy seceding for slavery, school districts that refused to desegregate, shootings that kill dozens of people. Additionally, in early human life, obedience was important for survival, leading me to believe that disobedience is “man's original virtue” if motivated by greed,
The glorious revolution signified a key step into the idea democracy. It showed the colonist that a leader who they feel is corrupt or unfit can be replaced. Although this did not immediately make the colonies fight for independence from England, it did create a revolutionary spirit the
They wanted to bring peace between the military groups that were formed by doing an agreement and for them to give their weapons up. In November 1992 Bill Clinton became president of The United States of America. Bill Clinton did not think like the past presidents and did not agree about leaving Northern Ireland alone. Bill Clinton believed that the U.S.A should step in to help with the peace process of Northern Ireland.
Wilde’s aestheticism is foundationally different because he is Irish, thus it allows him to disconnect himself from the framework of British aestheticism, which the likes of Pater followed so rigorously. His detachment from the ‘aesthetic literary rules’ meant he was able to launch a full-scale attack on the British bourgeois class corruption through vice. Through the use of his own framework Wilde’s Irishness becomes of the upmost importance, as he
It’s about Irish War of Independence-but interestingly the director is British (Ireland was ruled by Britain). It questions about the cruelty they made, not about who is the good and bad. By showing the conflict between brothers in different side, sensitive historical event was dealt in less provocative way and more tragic way. We can see a little peek of director’s intention at the scene when Damien shots his friend’s heart saying “I hope this Ireland we’re fighting for is worth it.” ; the difference of ideas cannot justify the act of killing.
The journey McGee would take in British North America (and later Canada) was largely political and it was during this time that he advocated for the “new northern nationality”. His idea of what constituted the “new northern nationality” was largely focused on a few values that he strongly held. Namely, minority rights, immigration, and most importantly separate schools. Moreover, through literature from his days as a member of the Young Ireland Movement, McGee advocated for a type of Canadian nationalism based on the Irish culture.

In the Spanish colonization of the Americas, the strategy of Indian Reductions brought about the constrained transformations to Catholicism of the indigenous individuals.

Prior to 1550, the European continent was dominated by Catholicism and had been for centuries. However, Protestantism first introduced by Martin Luther had begun to make inroads in the Holy Roman Empire and Nordic countries. Despite the growing popularity of these new religions, the majority of monarchs saw religious diversity as a weakness. Instead, most rulers pursued Religious uniformity to ensure political stability and strength. Examples of monarchs attempting to achieve religious university abound from Charles V in the Holy Roman Empire and Spain, to Rome, and to England.
Not only had the population grown numerically, but America was now a melting pot of many cultures. In particular, the Scots-Irish was one group that left a significant impact. They led the Paxton Boys on their march on Philadelphia, to protest against the Quakers ' peaceful relations towards the Indians. In addition, the Regulator movement protested the unbalanced power that favored the Eastern North Carolinians. Passed by Britain, the Molasses Act attempted to restrict American international trade but the colonists proved that they wouldn 't blindly accept these restrictions anymore.
