Charlemagne gave Carolingians a cultural reform by bringing unity in Western Empire. He brought stability in Europe and united France that made him the “Patron of Rome, Guardian of Roman church, and defender of the faith.” Both Alexander the Great and Charlemagne brought change to their country and honor to their countrymen. But it was the demonstration of their military superiority and skillful tactics and strategies that one of them truly deserve the title of “the Great.” Alexander’s leadership skills became apparent when he defeated the Maedi when he was only sixteen. Two years later, he was given a commanding post in the Macedonian army. After the assassination of King Philip, Alexander’s father, the election to the next ruler of Roman
on the other hand saw a new precedence in the history of the West. The crowning of Charlemagne by Pope Leo II . Pope Leo III's election as the pope in 795 was contested by the aristocracy and he was imprisoned. His escape to Charlemagne set for a series of events in which the latter had to defend Pope Leo III. In the background of all of this, the Pope had offered suzerainty to Charlemagne, an offer too lucrative to be refused by the latter.
As stated in document 2, John will aid the count of Champagne and send the knights to the count of Champagne for service. The author of document 7 may be biased against the negative aspects of the Middle Age, because he believed that the medieval culture ranked with that of earlier Golden age due to philosophy, law, poetry, and
Banneker uses repetition to reinforce a formal and respectful tone, utilizes strong and emotional diction, and concludes with a biblical allusion. The beginning of Banneker's letter strives to recall to Jefferson's memory the strife of the pre-1776 colonies against the tyrannical British Crown. Banneker initiates the letter by writing, "Sir, suffer me to recall to you." Banneker utilizes the word "sir" numerous times throughout the letter as he does in his introduction. Banneker does this in order to establish a formal tone that remains consistent throughout the letter.
The plan went just the way Ganelon predicted and Roland was ambushed with and he ended up getting struck in the head with little to no time to call for help so he died. Another sin that Ganelon committed was accepting bribes, this is a sin in the Christian faith. When Ganelon was sent to Saragossa with orders from Charlemagne to inform Marsile and Baligant to be baptized, he accepted rich gifts from Marsile as bribe to help him get rid of Charlemagne. “Bestow such bounty on the emperor/ that there will be no Frank left unamused... he’ll have no heart to fight you anymore.”(pg. 70, line 570- 579).
Pippin continued to preside over Church councils and lead the army during campaign seasons. The reform movement set down by his father and Boniface continued to push forward, with the Church’s power continued to grow. Nevertheless the Church continued with its missionary project in Germany and helped create Bavarian Laws. Pippin and Charlemagne also share an interesting similarity. They both were anointed as king on two separate occasions.
There are a countless number of distinct writers, including myself, William Zinsser, and even Ronnie Scott. In Zinsser’s story, “The Transaction,” he describes the obvious components in how he and Dr. Brock stand nowhere near similar. Zinsser depicts the different writing styles between he and Brock with an intense comparison. For instance, Brock is a surgeon who only began writing as a career in a later stage of his life. Zinsser began writing in his early years and, in his point of view, encompasses a greater knowledge of writing, at least in context.
Within this essay, one will be able to identify as to why the story of The Prince may have conflicted with Catholicism and Christianity, causing the Catholicism not only to ban the book, The Prince, but also all of Machiavelli’s works in 1559 for over 300 years. Throughout the Medieval and Renaissance era of times, there were books that offered advice to rulers. During these times, one of the famous examples was the instructional manual written to rulers by Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam. It was called The Education of a Christian Prince (Instituo Principlis Christiani), published in 1516. It was a book dedicated to Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V. The book addressed to the prince that
In 1180 the first mention of the Holy Grail was put into written text. Chrétien de Troyes’s French romance was called Conte del Graal, but the Holy Grail became more recognized when it was put into Christian text. Joseph wrote a poem called Joseph d’ Arimathie. In this poem Joseph talks about the Last Supper where Jesus drank from the Holy Grail. Also mentioned is how Joseph used the Grail to collect Jesus’ blood as He was on the cross (“The History of the Holy Grail”).
The other angels tried different methods to wake him up but to no effect. After they tried different methods to wake him up, they eventually gave up and just went on to sing “O Holy Night”, they weren’t expecting Gabriel to wake up from the song and they immediately sent him to meet with the Almighty Father. There, God tasked him to go to the planet Earth and search for Mary and Joseph and tell them that they will be the guardian of the Messiah and the King of Kings. After Gabriel heard God’s commands, he immediately went on to his journey and searched for Mary and Joseph. And one night at Mary’s house, the angel sent by God named Gabriel appeared and called out to Mary saying “Hail, you are highly favored, the Lord is with you, blessed are you among women.” Mary was troubled at first and was shocked of what manner of salutation this should be.
