Spanish claims to Latin America were based on the Christianizing mission. When Christopher Columbus arrived at the ‘New World’ in 1492 he quickly and forcibly took advantage of the wealth of the Indian tribes; those who refused to hand over their gold and jewels faced brutal punishment of all sorts. In return, Columbus and other Spaniards bestowed the Indians with Catholicism by baptizing them and teaching them the rituals of the religion. Hence, the colonization of Latin America was justified under the guise of spreading Christianity.
The Moors were muslim inhabitants of the Iberian Peninsula, that maintained the control over the majority of the area. The Spanish monarchs had established the Spanish Inquisition, “a state run system of courts where church officials put believers of religious ideas other than catholicism on trial.” They therefore believed that this would expand the Catholic religion. The regulation become more serious and it ordered Jews and Muslims to either convert to or leave Spain. However, the Spanish needed a bigger army to defeat the Moors.
The period of time around 1920s was the time that “American antisemitism reached it peak during the interwar period. The Russia Revolution and anti-communist Red Scare of 1918-20 was a contributing factor, as many Americans associated Jews with the emergence of communism ”(alpha history). Even though Jews were not so involved into the communism, “Stereotypes can affect not only evaluations of members of a stereotyped group but also evaluations of aspects of the group’s culture”(Mary & Bernard 155). The natives were afraid of the communism being brought into their culture. Besides, “The rising popularity of Ku Klux Klan”(alpha history), which were secret group of white people who used violence to oppose the revolution to equal right, somewhat influenced many whites.
ANTI-SEMITISM IN EUROPE IN THE YEARS THAT THE MERCHANT OF VENICE WRITTEN AND SHYLOCK’S MONOLOGUE ABOUT DISCRIMINATION I am going to use the word “anti-Semitism” rest of the paper, in order to understand the word, I want to give the definition of it.

Christian missionaries have participated in imperialist domination of the Native Americans and Asians, in the past, by imposing cultural changes on native populations in the name of religion. They have succeeded in removing their cultural identities. The technological disparity between the new world and the old world allowed for the west to gain a distinct psychological advantage over the new world. Most of the European missionaries during the colonial era were Catholic. That was partly because two Catholic countries, Spain and Portugal, took the lead in exploration.
They fought for their religion, but was blinded by fury. Their fury turned into victims that shouldn’t be abused. Like Document one said, they attacked Jews. Jews wasn’t part of their plan to take back Jerusalem. People won’t sign up for a group that will fight because of just anger.
The Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herodians were the principal political/religious groups who held authority and power over the Jews during the time of Jesus. Jesus repeatedly warned His disciples to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, the Sadducees, and of the Herodians. In using the word “leaven”, Jesus is essentially warning His disciples to beware of the corrupted teachings and doctrines of these leadership groups. Despite the teachings and doctrines of the Pharisees and Sadducees being quite different, and the Herodians being more of a political party, these leadership groups were all united in opposing the claims of Jesus. This essay intends to expound upon what exactly the teachings and doctrines of these groups were.

Many consider bystanders to be as guilty as perpetrators for not doing or saying anything in a time of crisis. Such was the case for the Holocaust. Bystanders during the Holocaust consisted of the civilians and countries who chose to distance themselves from what was really happening, instead choosing to justify the situation, or just not think of it. Many people rationalized, that the idea of self preservation was much more important than sacrificing oneself for the greater good. People also held a sense of indifference towards the suffering of the Jewish people.
The events that took place in WW2. Where Adolf Hitler subjugates Germany and sets laws that targeted Jews based on their religion. They blame Jews that they were the cause of all the problems for an example the loss of WW1. These laws segregated them from others like they are trash and things that aren’t meant to live. The type of articles that explains these things have two sides objective and subjective.
During the 1830’s, here was a political backlash on immigration, specifically because of the fact that most immigrants at that time were Catholic. This was troublesome because back in the 1500’s the protestants split from the Catholic Church, and this new wave of immigration sparked fear that the number of Catholics would grow. The reason that this fear was made possible was because even though the United States constitution does not explicitly mention god, religion has had influence on politics. An example of religion having influence over politics was the Anti-Saloon League in 1895, which was a protestant movement aimed at democratic government and local rights which also incorporated an anti-Catholic sentiment. This group was the first major religiously motivated to successfully have an impact on politics in the United States.
Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God Analysis Religion has unquestionably shaped the structure of the United States from the founding of the first colonies on the eastern coast to modern political disputes. The roots of its grasp upon american society can be tied back to settlements in the east for the purpose of establishing strict religious communities. Although many continued to hold onto older religious beliefs as the colonies progressed, american colonies began to drift from the stern ideals which were held by the colony’s founders. In fear of allowing the colonies to become involved in “worldly matters”, movements such as the Great Awakening arose. In this campaign, many ministers sought to instill fear upon those they believed to be
The early Church went through many transformations. It was a span of only one hundred years from the time the last Christian was persecuted to the time where Christians began to persecute others due to religious beliefs. This is seemingly inconsistent with the obedience and martyrdom that was promoted by the Bible and the early Catholic Church. Early political thought, which was closely tied with the beliefs of the Catholic Church heavily relied on the idea of nonresistance and obedience to keep people in line and in return keep the Church and Kings in power. How did St. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas transition from the use of persuasion to the use of violence to achieve legitimate moral and political ends?
Stephen Eric Bronner analyzes how the Jewish Zionist movement shape the Protocols and reflect the ideologies that are challenged between the two during the rise of the anti-Semite movement. He argues the ideas in this pamphlet are a complete forgery, yet they “helped shape the mass movements, revolutions, and wars of the twentieth century.” (4) Chapter three of his book, Rumor About the Jews, attempts to explain the effort the Protocols make against the modernity linked to political anti-Semitism supposedly taking place at the hands of Jews and their reactions to it. Antisemitic ideology, Bronner states, in contrast to the Judeophobia of earlier times, “presupposed a denial of the Jew both as a person and as a Jew.” (59)
These conflicts made it easy for such European foreigners as the Spanish to conquer the local communities. The second vulnerability that Native Americans suffer is that they lacked sophisticated weapons and tools (Cleary, n.d). They were unable to wage war against the European adventurers who possessed better equipment. For instance, the Spaniards were able to conquer American lands because they had access to complex equipment that allowed them to travel by sea and wage war (Cleary, n.d).
