His qualifications as a king did not meet what the old testament had desired, a king who had to be of that nation and divinely chosen by the people and God. Herod’s throne was given to him by the Romans. Herod the Great suffered greatly from paranoia, which lead him to murder his wife and son, all because of a false accusation that they were planning to overthrow him. Not only did he murder his family, but massacred all the infants age two and under to prevent a heir to the throne. Such was an act against god, because he attempted to kill baby Jesus as soon as he found out that he was the true king of Jews.
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.

Since Ferdinand grew up strictly Catholic, he didn’t allow many other religions as king which "made many Bohemians frustrated". Another cause of the revolt was that Ferdinand started to close down some Protestant churches(McKay et al. 562). The Bohemians soon got rid of Ferdinand as king and replaced him with Frederick V (Sturmberger). All of this conflict built up until fighting broke out, and this fighting lead to what is now known today as the Thirty Years ' War ("Ferdinand II

The Crusades were a series of battles that, from the beginning, had religious undertones. At the beginning of the 11th century, the Byzantine emperor Alexios I called for Pope Urban II to help with the growing threat of Turkish presence. Pope Urban II responded immediately by convincing Catholic soldiers to gain access to and protect the Holy Land and holy sites that were under Muslim rule. This was the first of several Crusades that took place over a 200-year period. Historians disagree on the number of Crusades being seven or eight, but the last one in this 200-year span was started by King Louis IX of France.
If enough people believe that Chinggis Khan is the punishment of God, it almost becomes true, as everyone treats and reacts to him as the punishment of God. Chinggis Khan also had no respect for religion. He burned down churches and killed everyone inside, as easily as he killed anyone else. He also killed “all from the male sex even to the female, all the priests and monks… Wednesday in Easter week” Chinggis Khan killed priests and monks, who were ordained ministers who had strong connections to religion. This in itself is brutal and ruthless, but the additional fact that he chose to do this during Easter week, defined as “the most important and oldest festival of the Christian Church…” is entirely ignorant of religion.
An organization of religious warriors, the Knights Templar protected Christian pilgrims in the Near East during the High Middle Ages (Davis Paul K.; Allen Lee Hamilton 1). The European knights, fighting as heavy cavalry, responded to the call of Pope Urban II in 1095 to march to the Holy Land and liberate it from the possession of the Muslims. The Knights accomplished their main goal of establishing European control in Jerusalem and the surrounding area, but Europeans were too few in numbers to control the countryside, this need for protection of Christian pilgrims brought the Knights Templar into Existence. The Knights Templar was organized into a hierarchy with a grand master at the top, followed by the seneschal, provincial marshals, commander of the land and realm Jerusalem, and commander of the fleet base at Acre, a city in the northern coastal plain region of northern Israel. The Knights wore white mantles with a red cross emblazoned on the front and back.
There was no difference when Charlemagne became the ruler of the Franks. Charlemagne inspired to spread Christianity and unite Western Europe and the Germanic people. Charlemagne used tactics, which by today’s standards people would consider unethical, to accomplish his ideas. There were multiple benefits that came from uniting Western Europe and forcing the conversion of Christianity amongst the populace. Charlemagne’s rule was full of wars.
