According to an article in the Harvard University Press and edited by Anthony Grafton, “Jesuits” The Classical Tradition, Ignatius of Loyola founded the Jesuits and received approval from Pope Paul III by 1540. The group of Jesuits were an organized group of priests and lay brothers who spread the word of God around the world. Along with spreading the written word they also followed the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience. The Jesuits main purpose was to practice and then teach the lessons of God to people who did not know about Christianity, that included Japan, China, Paraguay and North America.

However, due the American and European influence, it changed the thought of what should women do that the society drawn, as they became more aware of the right to have a better education, which helped to create the suffragette movements. According to Murray, the feminism movement in the early 20th century sought to ensure women’s access to higher education and professional employment (p.119). The movement called for changes and improvements in female education, where they would have better schooling higher than secondary education. For instance, in Chile, Mexico and Argentina, new national systems of normal schools and institution had begun to admit young women (Murray, p.120).
P.O. 4137 Question 1: The Main Plot-Line of the Book The Lost Letters of Pergamum follows a collection of long distance letters between the Apostle Luke and Antipas, wealthy and powerful Roman living in Pergamum. Their correspondence mainly deals with Antipas’ reading of Luke’s manuscript (Luke’s manuscript is the gospel of Luke). Through their writings, Luke encourages Antipas in seeking out a group of Christians so that he can read Luke’s manuscript with them and see how Christians live out the teachings of Jesus. Finding this agreeable, Antipas and his prominent friend Rufinus went to the house of Kalandion where a group of prominent Roman Christians gathered.
This line was significant to me because although Marie is recalling something traumatic, she demonstrates great courage to continue to the story of her time at the convent with the twisted character of Sister Leopolda. Additionally, she wonders if Sister Leopolda hurt other children, but she knows the answer to her question. Through manipulation of Catholicism, many church figures, like Leopolda would take advantage of native children. Marie thought that Sister Leopolda was the key to her becoming a Saint. Thus, she believed and followed everything she asked of her.
First, the Western Christians wanted to show they were solely devoted to God. By choosing to be a soldier for Christ and bearing the sign of the cross on their backs during pilgrimages, would give them the opportunity to display this devotion and give them the opportunity to assist the church.

Today in the United States, we honor our country for being “the land of the free,” but does everyone in the U.S. feel like they actually live in “the land of the free?” Compared to our past we have improved our prejudice mindset, but not nearly enough. The 19th amendment, allowing women to vote, leads us to believe women are equivalent to men. Students in history classes today, learn about how women gained equal rights as men in the 1920’s, but women are nowhere near close to being considered equivalent to the male gender. Feminist movements have exposed to the country how unfair women and young girls are treated. Sexist dress codes, shaming young girls for our country’s high teen pregnancy rate, sexual harassment, domestic violence are just a few ways how women are treated unjustly in our society.

Anthony a famous women activist once said “The day may be approaching when the whole world with recognize women as the equal of men. “ The changing role of women was a result of the work they did during the war.

Women stopped doing what men wanted them do and started doing what they wanted, getting more rights and their own voices.
The main religions that Pope John Paul II focused on were the faiths of Islam, Judaism, and Buddhism. He tried very hard to better the relationship with the Islamic people by being the first pope to pray in a mosque and he hosted an event to help bring together the Islamic leaders and Jewish leaders, which was very effective. Pope John Paul II also tried to bring the Jewish people in better relations with the Catholics. In particular, he visited the Auschwitz Concentration camp in Poland and also was the first pope to go to a synagogue when he went to the Great Synagogue of Rome. Likewise, John Paul II visited, touched, and left a letter at the Western Wall to ask for forgiveness from the Jews.
Early Christianity needed to depend on the missionary supporters to announce news and messages because of not having the assistance of modern innovation. Paul’s purpose in the 1 Corinthians letter was to spread God’s message and change how the way people live. It is written approximately three years after Paul left Corinth (54 CE).
