Henceforth, his king and any other king needed to embrace not only the entire country but the will of the people, simultaneously being immune from judgment of anyone mortal. This paper will set up the key differences between both John Locke and Bishop Bossuet arguments on Monarchy. Locke beliefs are what the constitution was built upon.

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone." Here Henry is speaking to the convention to tell them that God rules the nations and that he will not fail them. Furthermore, Henry states, "...if we make a proper use of those means
Religion influenced the government of the Puritans. They believed that they each had their own boundaries or power given by the Lord (Doc H). Puritans wanted the church and government to intertwine and aid one another, creating a stronger bond. In addition, the Puritan’s emphasis on religious conformity and the attainment of land for their model society led them to engage in wars with neighboring Indian tribes. For instance, William Bradford fought with Pequot tribe in the Pequot War, believing that God is the source of their victory and therefore praise him (Doc D).
On March 23, 1775, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” was heard all throughout St. John 's Church. These famous words were not only a great speaker looking to have his voice heard, but they would have an everlasting impact on young English students studying the use of ethos, logos, and pathos. Patrick Henry also used figurative languages such as allusions, parallelism, and biblical references to bring his speech to life. In this specific piece of literature, qualities like independence and individualism are exceedingly prominent, this all being due to Henry’s use of literary devices. Conversely, in the very first sentence, Henry uses ethos to articulate how he is patriotic to his home, but he occupies diverse views than his audience, the Virginia
“Men of sound judgment will always be sure that a sense of divinity which can never be effaced is engraved upon men 's minds.” In this as well is Calvin’s argument for humans having an innate sense of divinity which goes along with the seed of religion.

Glory is the prime motivation for Beowulf in his story. Beowulf wants to be remembered for the great deeds he has done in his lifetime, like Hrothgar. Hrothgar, the king has earned his glory in his youth. “To Hrothgar was given such glory of war, such honor of combat, that all his kin obeyed him gladly…” (Part 1) Hrothgar is now old and unable to protect his kingdom, and Beowulf decides that he will step in and help because of the glory it will give him.
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, whose author is unknown, is an Arthurian Romance/Epic that holds a degree of Christian symbolism. These Christian symbols are intermixed with Britannic Pagan traditions and themes in order to appeal more to the common British people at the time of the early Christianization of Britain. This can be supported by the stories of kings being created in the earlier centuries throughout history. In this particular story, this symbolism is important since all the knights of King Arthur’s Court were supposed to follow a certain chivalrous code of conduct, whether present in the courts or away on some other venture. The chivalric code being the embodiment of Christian virtue and valor, which was expected to be personified
Beowulf, the distinct hero in this epic poem, was adorned by many, was a strong and very loyal character, and could do what a normal man could not. “Then he saw, hanging on the wall, a heavy sword, hammered by giants, strong and blessed with their magic, the best of all weapons but so massive no ordinary man could life its carved and decorated length…” “...And struck with all the strength he had left, caught her neck and cut it through, broke bones and all.” (Raffel, 37). Beowulf was almost conquered by Grendel’s mother, but his intuition, strength, and skill all played a role in his success over her.
Communication is key in every aspect of life. It is necessary for politicians to communicate with society, and it is necessary for a family to communicate to function. In Paradise Lost, John Milton writes speech after speech to force the importance of that communication between characters and with one’s own conscience. By taking the potentially blasphemous risk to speak for God, Milton reiterates to readers in a single speech that even if God knows every outcome of every conversation, there is still necessity in communication between Him and His followers, so that even as the almighty and all powerful, He can one day be the benign god He wishes to be.
Chivalrous: a word to describe a knight of courtesy, generosity, dexterity in arms, and honor of God and their people. Despite the knightly chivalry of the three men, Sir Lancelot, King Arthur, and Sir Gawain showed aspects that were not considered chivalrous such as kissing the lord's wife, being disloyal to God and not keeping promises. These three men of medieval literature show complexity of chivalry and honor along with instances of betrayal and mistakes. These men exemplify qualities of chivalry and their instances of non-chivalric behavior helped them in the end. Sir Lancelot is a character from the great stories of Medieval Romance who was advanced in fighting.
A comparison that I can make with this reading is from Richard Godbeer, The Devil’s Dominion: Magic and Religion in Early New England, which illustrates magical beliefs and practices that the colonists brought with them from England. Puritan preachers condemned magic as ungodly and diabolical. Magic and occultism was rejected by the preachers of New England and so they were shocked to learn that colonists used magic themselves. New Englanders used magic to manipulate time and space, clairvoyance, and travel
Thomas Paine described America through Common Sense. The book contains a deep thought about America. Thomas Paine wrote his ideas and feelings in the pamphlet. At that time, colonial America was confused about their independence and they were under British rule, so the book, Common Sense made more sense to the people.

Life today brings so many more advantages than life during the medieval times. We easily move from place to place and anything necessary for living can easily be bought. However, the ways of life were fascinating during the medieval time period. Items were not always available at the click of a button and people lived a different type of life. Women were perceived very different back then.
