This documentary covers sex from ancient Rome to the Renaissance, topics such as human biology, art, humor, and attitudes. In the Middle Ages, celibacy was considered the only way, and such things as homosexuality and other sexual acts deemed sinful were punishable by death. The church actually would have art and paintings, some sexually explicit, around to depict in full view of what not to do. The Professors in this documentary discuss just how preoccupied the church became in regulating and repressing sex. A male dominated religious belief system grew from the desire to dominate politically.
Religious Freedom was the key role in the colonies. People were allowed to choose their own religion without the fear of being persecuted or tormented because they chose a different religion than that of the Church. The New England colonies were heavily impacted by religion during their development. Church officers had ran the Churches and the state, meaning that if you were a member of the Church you had power without a doubt. Massachusetts for example, the minister of the Church had ran both the Church and the state which gave him
Profits of Master During the Seventeenth Century During the 1600’s there were many laws passed regarding slavery. Therefore, today people would think those laws might have been passed for the general good of the society.

Despite their efforts to dominate the slaves, the masters realized that it was becoming more and more difficult to control the slaves.

By the 1830s, the context was ripe for abolitionism and women 's rights.

The Puritans though that brotherhood, community, and religion to be the most important social standings in their colonies, yet were violent towards non-Puritans. The New England colonies were very religiously active compared to other colonies like Virginia, were religion was an afterthought. Because of the Tobacco craze in Virginia, it was only until the mid-1700’s when religion actually became a part of the colony. In general the Puritans were extremely intolerant of other beliefs that were not theirs, and history shows that they could become quite violent towards non-believers. Anyone who was an outsider or deemed non-Puritan would be banished or executed; in Puritan society, the fear of outsiders was ingrained into the mind of Puritan followers,
Throughout history, religion has played an important role in the lives of the English settlers; many people believed in different religions, and this has caused problems within the New World colonies. Religion was strictly enforced, and punished according to your beliefs. When the English settlers decided to set sail to find refuge from the religious restriction, they were hopeful for a new life.

Document B shows how dense New England's towns were. The houses were very close together, and church and school were in the center of town. Their religious convictions influenced this structure because church was a central part of their lives, so they all needed to live close to a church. Because of their religious devotion, education was also important to the Puritans. Schools were founded much faster than in the southern colonies, because the Puritans "dread[ed] to leave an illiterate Ministery to the Churches" (Document E).
aired inevitably with the plagues disappearance and time. The Plague as well had a significant impact on religion in which in many cases began to become a outlet for reasoning the plagues occurrence. The plague was widely attributed to the wrath of “G-d” in the European Roman Catholic Empire and most of which residing within it began to attribute the Plague of “G-ds” wrath as being caused furthermore by the ill services of the Church’s clergymen. People had long seen the clergy as over privileged and in many cases corrupt, even within the Church itself these beliefs were held by clergy in regards to their peers and those in which they oversaw (Byrne, Joseph P.

Although the Spanish, French, and English all had major impacts on their respective settlements, the English had a substantial influence on what became the American colonies. From the early founding of Jamestown in 1607 until the calls for American independence in 1776, the people who settled in New England had a direct impact on the nation’s future. American culture and values changed over the course of the next one-and-a-half centuries, leading to uniqueness only present in the New World. Spanning from religious groups to scientific thinkers, developments in New England led to independent viewpoints that differed from Great Britain’s. Ultimately, this was a contributing factor for the American War of Independence in 1776.
Religion played a great role in the establishment of the English colonies. The main reason the English traveled to North America was to escape religious persecution. Once the English settled in they created colonies, and established rules for a religious society. They would also try to convert Natives into Christianity, and they established universities to practice ministry. Once the English settlers got to North America, the House of Burgesses in 1619 said they would try to convert Native children specifically boys into a “ true religion”, then eventually teach them how teach them how to be Christian civil people.
In my opinion the one event that had the most significant role in the American Revolution was when the British made the Coercive/ Intolerable Acts. When the British made these acts, they cut off ports and a colony, and made a number of acts to punish the colonies. These acts made the colonist start an uprising against the British. These uprises lead to the colonist going against the British and starting the American Revolution.
