(354-357) Born then says the final line within Canto 28, “Thus is observed in me the counterpoise.” (358) Not all of Dante’s Hell continues the trend of being a place made only for people who have committed grave sin. The reader finds in Canto 4 that many great poets and people that existed prior to the death of Jesus Christ inhabit the first circle. (88-90) Finally, Dante’s phrases his idea of hell in a very interesting way in Canto 3 by saying those in hell have “foregone the good of intellect” (18)
19.52-7), and it was in that occasion that Nicholas III prophesied the damnation of both, Boniface VIII and Pope Clement V. In short, Dante puts many popes and bishops of the Roman Church in the hell, in order to enable them to expiate their sins, also accusing the Roman Church to be guilty of both crimes, prostitution and slavery for money, identifying it with the beast of the Apocalypse, because its actions were strongly in contrast with the primitive belief on the frugality and poverty of the early church: “E mentr'io li cantava cotai note/ o tra o coscienza che il mordesse/ forte spingeva con ombre puote'”.

The Last Supper depicts the story told in the bible as the last meal Jesus had with his disciples before being crucified. Jesus made the statement that someone would betray him. Thesis work of art is an attempt to catch the chaos in the room after Jesus made the statement. Catherine Sundt makes the statement ,” The Last Supper and Handel’s Messiah are not Christian teachings, but rather art inspired by Christianity”(Sundt 77).
The Inquisition was an important role in this time period and now it is a humongous part about history. The Inquisition started to die out in the 1300s as the heresies themselves faded. The next phase began in 1478 at the request of the Spanish sovereigns
Due to the significance of Saint Peter, the Necropolis found underneath Vatican City becomes critical to the Christian faith. Saint Peter was crucified in Nero’s Circus (“Circuses of Rome”). On this location, Constantine built the original Saint Peter’s Basilica with the purpose of providing both an extravagant monument to the first of Christ’s disciples and protection of the location of Saint Peter’s supposed burial (“History”). During construction, massive quantities of earth had to be moved to level the side of the hill upon which the Basilica would be erected; the Necropolis was actually filled in entirely with earth.
The author attempts to examine the architype of the Christian baptism in this academic article by exploring the relationship between the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist and Christian baptism. Many religious theorists believe the baptism Jesus received distinguished him from the baptism of other Jews by way of the gift of the Spirit, while classifying him with the people as the price for their sin. 4. The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Catholicism volume is pretty much self-described. It manages to encompass the world’s largest Christian denomination, a very complex and convoluted subject, into easily digestible nuggets of information.

These art work show proof of their beliefs in God and that he had prophets to help guided their religions, even though they may have some different views. Jews, Christians and Muslims share more than just a great deal of theology.
However, there was an immediate threat to the stability of the new Roman state: the secession of plebeians. When the plebs were upset about the debts of servitude they owed to the patricians, they had the idea of killing the consuls, but having been told that would not solve their problems, “without the order of the consuls and on the advice of one Sicinius, they withdrew to the sacred Mount” (Lucretius 2.32). Because of this secession, “the plebs, abandoned by their supporters, feared violence at the hands of the senators. The senators feared the plebs who were left in the city,” which showed the tension between the Roman people and the threat of further destabilization should violence have erupted. Menenius Agrippa was able to bring the plebeians back into the fold with his parable of the belly and limbs, which led to the creation of tribunes, plebeian magistrates who were sacrosanct and had the power to veto the consuls, and some
One of the artwork is called ‘The Adoration of the Shepherds’ or ‘La adoracion de los pastores’. This painting is when Jesus is born, the shepherds and angels are celebrating his birth.

Paul The Apostle Nearly two thousand years ago saint paul savagely persecuted the newly upcoming Christian faith, then passionately embraced it. Some say because of him Christianity became a big conquest of the Roman empire or he is best known as the “second founder”(Barnett,19). of Christ. Without him and his sacrifices Christianity might have never become a world religion it is today.
Reading Response 2: A Documentary History of Art The narrative of art that Lorenzo Ghiberti tells in “The Second Commentary” is how the Christian faith was victorious in the time of Emperor Constantine and Pope Sylvester’s reign (152). But the decline of art began, when statutes of idols were destroyed and broken into pieces and that all ancient customs stop and temples were to made of all white (153). If anyone, made any statue or picture, they would suffer severe punishment (153). This form of punishment was created so that idol gods and people were not worshipped.
Because Alexander the Great was weakened by both his drinking and fever, he was vulnerable. Any of his enemies who wanted to hurt him had their chance. Some of those enemies were Antipater, his tutor Aristotle, and any of the generals that may have turned against him. The one who most likely murder Alexander the Great was Antipater, Antipater had worked for Alexander the Great 's father Philip. Antipitar may have had a reason to kill Alexander the Great as, “Alexander sent orders for [Antipitar] to surrender his post and report to Babylon.”
The story begins with dialogue between God and the Devil. The Devil claims that a person cannot live by the demands outlined in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. In terms that echo the deal made in the Book of Job, God gives the Devil domain over Michael Steel, a successful actor that is in the running for an Oscar, to try and prove his point. Steel decides to live by Jesus’ commands and then is in constant contact with the words of The Sermon on the Mount on the radio, television, and in his own reading.
The Rapture returns all believers in Christ from the Earth which is described in the bible by 1Thessaloinians 4:13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:50-54. The second coming is when Jesus returns to defeat the Antichrist and destroy Evil which is described in the bible in Revelation 19:11-16. Either way this sounds like a waiting game for many Christians and many non-believers because basically we could wake up tomorrow with friends and family who have disappeared and others are left on earth with the wonder and thought of what’s going to happen to them. I don’t judge those who are religious and I definitely don’t want to put anything on the back burner but personally I don’t know how I feel about the Rapture. Doing a lot of research on the Rapture makes me feel like it could happen but at the same time I feel screwed because I don’t pray every day and I don’t go to Church everyday which has me wondering what’s going to happen to me and my family all because we chose a different route of faith.
Everything that happened to you was because God made it happen. Charlemagne was a huge influence on the bringing of Christianity. He did torture or kill you if you didn’t believe in Christianity (until you did). If you disobeyed the church you would be punished. The Crusades were encouraged by Pope Urban, as he thought they were “Holy Wars”, the Roman army would save Jerusalem from any trouble because Jesus was born there.
