Different religions used them to fight for what they believed belonged to them. They also used them to gain power over the many holy land like the Palestine. Others may have used it just to rid some people from the church, while some believed that it was adventure. What would you have done in the time of the
However they still had many differences. While one defined traditional authority and scientific law. The other was built around faith, rational study, and emotional
He was vital in his battle against the Huns and Attila. Pope Gregory also increased positivity in papacy for Rome. He laid the foundation for medieval papacy and dilineated what he believed would be a successful papacy. The corruption and lies could be a negative outcome of the papacy because it was this that led to the Protestant Reformation
Unfortunately, the misunderstanding regarding his intentions enabled noblemen to interpret it as allowing for the massacre to take place. This issue of his true intentions would become an issue that would take some time to resolve due to the simple fact that rumors and other noble elites traveled at a faster pace than those of his letters. The fear of an uprising and previous quarrels enabled for the words of the king to be distorted in such a way that the Christians were finally able to seek their revenge. However, this would not have been possible without the authorities succumbing to these
This is starking contrast to the thoughts of previous Romans, especially Pliny and having Christians persecuted. A motivation behind the Edict of Milan can be to gain more followers, because now they would also have the Christians on their side. The Edict states, “We thought fit to commend these things most fully to your care that you may know that we have given…” (Edict of Milan). I think that the beginning of that quote shows that it was made so people would know that they wrote it and they are trying to show that they care, which is why I thought it was made to gain more followers. Another quote goes on to say, “the right of open and free observance of their worship for the sake of the peace of our times” (Edict of Milan).
However, there were also many differences between the two expansionist periods because some people supported imperialism while others were highly opposed to the idea. It was evident in both cases of expansion that the United States was a stubborn nation that would take what they wanted at any cost. Americans risked war and national safety for the purpose of gaining land, or simply proving their dominance as a World Power. Americans pushed aside the Native Americans who inhabited the land they wanted in the early years of expansionism. They believed that the land was
The first thing Gustav did when the Danish were forced out was to impose taxes on the church. There were debts to Lubeck that needed to be paid and the Catholic church had the money to do it. This would later lead to the reformation in Sweden. Aside from having debts to pay off, Vasa didn't quite like the idea of a power that had just as much or more than what he had as king, though, he did sympathize with the need of church services. This led to the spread of Lutheranism throughout the country but Sweden didn't accept it as the national religion until 1544, because of the change to Lutheranism, there was a revolt from 1542 to 1543, started by Anti-Lutheran's.
Some members of the church used this power to influence others to follow the rules of Catholicism; however there was a growing number of church members who were corrupt. Writers such as Chaucer, used their works to express the concern for the rise of corruption. In order to express these thoughts clearly, Chaucer used satire to symbolize the actions of the church. The monk and the parson can be interpreted as symbols of the Catholic Church members’ views during the medieval period: The monk symbolized the church members who disregarded the inculcation of Catholic values, and the parson symbolized the more orthodox members of the church. Chaucer used the same standards to criticize both characters in the prologue of tales.
“This is why I ordered the Saracens and other heathens that they shed your blood and take many of you prisoners.” A major component of Closener’s Chronicle was the philosophical disagreement between some priests and clergy, and the Flagellants. Near the beginning of their movement, the Flagellants had the support of the people over Church representatives, but this didn’t remain the case. The Flagellants likely wanted to turn the people against Church, and have more followers of their
During medieval Europe, there was a lack of culture and literature but the Ancient Greek and Roman civilization were way head on technology back then. Next, there were lots of good things that happened and then there were lots of things that weren’t successful. It was different with every civilization. Also, people had different opinions about this question. Some say that the Middle ages were a Golden Era whereas others might disagree and say it was a Dark Age.
The KKK struggled and ultimately succeeded in gaining political advantages in order to gain more influence in the United States, as well as to help avoid punishment for their prosecution of the Catholic people and their property. It was with great perseverance that the Catholic religion in the early 1900s struggled to stay relevant in the changing times and fought against the KKK in order to avoid persecution and unjust
Popes had used the Crusades as a tool in order to achieve and fulfil religious, political and economic aspects. They had used spiritual rewards and utilising the desire of exploring in Crusaders, thousands of men participated in the Crusades. The Crusades had caused multiple debates where historians have argued which of the two major motives played as more of an active agent. However, the religious devotion aspect outweighs the political and economic benefits and serves as the catalyst of the
Charles then appointed two catholic ministers to the Cabal, this issue was clearly one which could have been avoided had Charles been more shrewd. Charles did little to address the role of parliament and did nothing to solve the problems that had to led to war. The fears of Catholicism were reignited when James II took the throne; he was a political liability from the offset announcing he was a catholic, this lack of political awareness allowed him to be the brunt of suspicion. Consequently he was later removed from the throne as he posed a threat to the Protestant religion and the rule of law. James’ personality alienated the political nation; to such an extent that it was not divided over opinion, but completely rejected him.
