In the eleventh century, the city-state form of government began to establish itself as the emerging Italian political system. These independently controlled regions began to gain power and wealth through improved trade with eastern merchants, and Venice and Amalfi became two of the strongest city-states. The Renaissance, which is the French word for rebirth, began in the fifteenth century. This period was characterized by artistic, cultural, and social advancements as well as the intellectual movement called humanism which believed that human intellect was the source of significance for man rather than the commonly accepted belief in the superiority of the divine and supernatural. Many of the Renaissance’s most notable achievements were in the area of the arts with Florence, Italy serving as the center of this phenomenon.
A specific religion is christianity. Christianity was very unlike other religions, particularly because of their monotheistic views. Christians were seen as threat to the Romans at this time prior to around 381, which is around when Christianity became a common religion. Although Christians were good citizens, and people who wanted to follow Jesus, they were constantly impacted by aspects of the Roman culture. The Roman history, pertaining to the way people worshiped, the philosophy and the music all had a significant impact on the Christian church.
Isn’t it amazing how two works of literature can be so different yet so similar. The way that two different authors with completely different writing styles can intertwine similar themes and symbols without even trying is simply astounding. In the two literary works of Paradise Lost and Beowulf, the authors explore the biblical analogies of the Creator, the Great Destroyer, and a Savior. The two works Paradise Lost and Beowulf are very different in that one is pagan and the other is Christian.
A Reformation is the action or process of something developing or reforming especially in an institution or practice. This means that both of these Reformations are alike because they both Reformed their cultures, religious beliefs and understandings, way of life, traditions and rituals and both gained overall knowledge and development through trade and the spread of ideas after the change in their religion. The protestant Reformation was a change that didn’t only affect the Christian religion, but also the changed the political, cultural and intellectual parts of Europe that made it what we know it as today. You could say that establishing the Qur’an, was like Martin Luther and his “95 theses”. Because both actions made a generally positive change to both the society, culture, government and religion.

According to her, the middle ages are defined as the other of the modern time; they were portrayed from one hand as the period of social and spiritual harmony ,and the golden age of the religious oppression and persecution from the other hand.

After the Fall of the Roman Empire in 476 it was divided into a western and an eastern Empire. The eastern Empire which is also known as the Byzantine Empire, lived on as it was wealthier and better in trade. According to Rietbergen (2006, p.114), Church and State were very closely combined in the Byzantine Empire, which is the first difference of Religion in the two new European Regions. During the Roman Empire Christianity was given higher attention and became one of the leading religions in Europe. However, one must know that Christendom already differed in Latin Christianity, which is west orientated, and Orthodox Christendom, which mostly appears in the East.
The two parties are seen as two different “countries” now because they emphasise confrontation over cooperation and have utterly different views on almost everything (Abramowitz). It is not even only about voting anymore, it is about living. About a third of voters of both parties say that the other party is a threat to America’s well-being (“Political Polarization”). Communities are becoming increasingly crowded with like-minded people, not only in states or on a regional level but in the midst of cities and towns (Bishop). Further, education has a profound impact on America’s polarisation: regarding social and geographic flexibility, people with a degree of any grade benefit more freedom than others (Tuschman).
What’s the Best Way to Rule the People?

Religion they had their crazy beliefs on how to treat their civilization on what they believed. Last but not least trading and markets help them become successful. This is how Central and South America developed prior to the arrival of the
Early in the book, it is established how important Aeneas’s duty is to him. Aeneas is meant to be fulfilling his fate by founding a city in Italy. It is obvious that before he met Dido he was very focused on his responsibilities. Virgil makes a point of this by writing: “duty-bound … took the course heaven gave him and went back to the fleet”. (521-526) Aeneas was under an immense amount of pressure because he knew his fate was to lay the foundation for the Roman Empire after the siege of Troy.
Although the Roman Civilization was considered a Republic and the United States is considered a democracy, there are many similarities between the two. However the Senate was one of the biggest influences on the United States. The senate’s job in both Ancient Rome and the United States is to make laws for the government, therefore everything in under control in the government and for the outside citizens. However, in Ancient Rome the members of the senate were born into it and were always Patricians. In result the Plebeians wanted power too and started the first secession of the plebs.
