Although they were both christian puritans, John Eliots views were thatit was his civic duty to help the Indians by forcing his religion upon them, while Roger Williams though it was his civic duty to help the Indians get religious liberty.

The name and the reputation of a character plays a major role in how a person will act. A surprising and important example of this is Reverend Parris, who is the priest of the town, and he is someone who would do anything to keep his family name and respect in the town of Salem, Massachusetts. He is the priest in the church, and he believes that there are people who would like for him not to be the leader of the church, and are trying to get rid of him from the church. When his daughter and niece are accused of doing witchcraft and being taken by the devil, he demands that no one tell the town, so he can maintain his
Albans Psalter, foretells that those who are holy shall be preserved forever, and the unjust shall be punished and the seed of the wicked shall perish.

The header is beautifully illuminated with colors of crimson, gold, blue, green, orange, and white. Christ is displayed looking down upon three figures, directing one of the figures with a rod. This rod signifies Christ’s judgment and its use to literally direct one of the men “With the lord the step of man shall be directed”.
In C. S. Lewis 's book The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Aslan 's character, death/resurrection, and breath help form the argument that he is an overall picture of all three parts of who God is.

This children 's book, if looked at from a Christian perspective, could greatly influences one 's thoughts when reading such a wonderful story. ¨Wrong will be Right, when Aslan comes in sight, At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no moire, When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death, And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again
Loyalty: The Pillar of Camelot The medieval tales of Arthurian times stress profound values of the fifteenth - century kingdom of Camelot. At a time when faithfulness and nobility guide daily life, the legends of King Arthur, Merlin, and the knights help uphold the virtue of loyalty. In Morte D’Arthur, Sir Thomas Malory uses his first - hand experiences to retell the legend of these Arthurian figures with the ultimate goal of emphasizing the need for devotion in medieval England. John Boorman’s film adaptation, Excalibur, brings to life these characters helping to promote adherence of trust in a kingdom that places vital importance on the code of chivalry.

There are many differences that can be pointed out when evaluating the Maesta and the Sistine Ceiling. One of the main differences between these two paintings is that the Maesta establishes union through their religion that depicts the Virgin Mary as the central figure of their belief system, whereas the Sistine ceiling is a painting that is devoted to the catholic church with god as their drive in their religion. This difference is important because it shows how important religion was to both the Romans and Sienese. Both of these paintings depict a contrasting view on who they worshipped. The Maesta creates an image around the Virgin Mary as she was believed to be the most respectable person and powerful.
The thing that stands out when reading the stories of Beowulf, Sir Gawain, and the Canterbury Tales is that the writers use Christianity to show conflicts in human nature. Also with these stories taking place in different times with writers who have different opinions about Christianity and how it has influences Society. For example, in Beowulf, the writer chooses to mash up the ideas of Christianity and paganism because during the time that the writer was transcribing the story there were missionaries trying to convert the Anglo-Saxons that lived in Britain, so the missionaries used Beowulf as a way to reach the pagans. This is also been done to other stories like in the Viking legend Thor god of thunder where at the end of the story the world

The fact that we live n a country where you can practice in whichever religion you choose, is a great accomplishment.
During the epic, Beowulf emphasizes a great deal about having faith in God and how it 's going to help get through certain struggles in life. For example, “The almighty judge of good deeds and bad, the Lord God, Head of Heavens and high King of the world.” As for the movie, he treats religion as if he has no interest in converting into Christianity or doesn 't care anything about it. Since he is strong he must think that he doesn 't need help to be protected. One of the scenes during the movie is talking about the people going through the process of baptism.
