The European knight and the Japanese samurai are two of the greatest soldiers in history. Both were strong, fierce, and brave warriors who were hired by lords to defend their lands. They also both lived by a code of honor which contained all of the warrior’s values and what was expected of them. Prepared from a very young age, samurai and knights were trained in many aspects such as combat, strategy, serving a lord, and honor above all else. When they entered their rank of either knight or samurai.
This proves that feudalism worked better for Europe than it did in Japan. There were several different results that came from feudalism that resulted in a hierarchy. After the fall of Europe they built a society based off of a pyramid of power. At the top was the king.
Introduction Knights contributed many key attributes to making a kingdom successful. The land and it’s people were protected and guarded very well by Knights. By protecting the land and it’s citizens, knights were able to make a living from the king. This then allowed them to open manors. Knights were a very important part of the feudal system, culture, military and economy in medieval times.
Tokugawa Japan + Medieval Europe Medieval Europe and Tokugawa Japan lived in seclusion to each other, and yet there were many uncanny similarities between Tokugawa Japan and Medieval Europe. In Medieval Europe there were many key features of the social system that were introduced at the time. The social system of Medieval Europe was called Feudalism. Feudalism puts the King in charge of everything and everyone, with barons and nobles underneath him. The nobles provide loyalty and knights to the king in return for land to control.
In this case the Japan and Europe are being classified. The samurais and knights are more alike than different mostly because of the social positions in their communities when they are classified on the social pyramids of Japan for the Samurai and Europe for the Knight. In one of the documents I have read (Document A) it shows the Classification for Japan and Europe. The Samurai and the Knight are both classified in the middle of each pyramid underneath the Shogun and the King but above the peasants in both societies. Also in Document B with Catharina Blomberg as the source it talks about being loyal to their lords.
A manor relied on all social classes, including the king and peasants, to survive and keep a steady stream of production. The king was the main holder of all land. He gave the land to the lords so they could support manors. In return, lords pledged loyalty and military service (Nardo). Lords gave the king loyalty, and to vassals/knights, he gave them part of his land in return for military service to the lord (Nardo).
Even though Virgil was a good man, he misunderstood parts of virtue unlike the pagan that the eagle described and therefore, Virgil could not reach salvation and paradise. Dante the Poet includes both pagans and Christians in every realm in order to show that there are good and bad people everywhere, and anyone can reach Paradise if they are virtuous and understanding of the greater purpose in life. The argument Dante has is persuasive to many groups of people because he includes people outside of his targeted audience in order to demonstrate the universal message he
For a believer, death is like sleep. Those who die in Christ Jesus will resurrect to eternal life. Those who did not believe in Jesus will resurrect to eternal damnation because they are already judged (2 Cor. 5:10). Death is salvation language used by Jesus pointing to apocalyptic life eternal for the saints (Rev. 21:4-5). Physical death is not the end of a person who dies believing in Jesus (John 11:14).
One of the most important evidence for this is the transformation of the disciples. Before and after the crucifixion the disciples were timid and fearful, they were terrified of being killed but something changed and that was the appearance of Jesus bodily risen from the dead. The moment they saw Jesus again they were all transformed because they knew the truth. They finally understood that Jesus was God incarnate and that he saves people from sin. That is why all the disciples had a radical change and became bold witnesses to everything they had seen, even to the point of dying for their beliefs.
Rostand gives us a glimpse into the life of someone who lacks outer beauty, but makes up with inner beauty. Throughout the novel, Cyrano thought no one would love him, but through death, he actually finds out that Roxane loved him. After reading Cyrano de Bergerac and Sonnet 18, I understand that true love is something that will never go away. Love is like a rollercoaster track and death is the end of the ride: even when the ride ends, the track will still be one big infinity
Whatever it maybe, there’s sure going to be a consequence right along with it. Jonathan Edwards, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” combines the ideal beliefs that any Christian lives by and that’s the guilt of committing a sin. We live by the absolute horrifying penalty of going to hell, for the only god to judge us. In order to prevent this we have to obey his law and practice it. History has displayed countless amounts of times were the fear of hell has made us absolutely, earn a one way ticket there.
Last but not least, God blesses nations that worship him. As it says in Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.” This seen in many nations like America when it first started out: it was formed upon christen
