A religious movement, that made religion more popular, between 1730 - 1740. Jonathon Edwards and George Whitefield were the two who set off the great awakening. Jonathon Edwards helped set off the Great Awakening because of in his “powerful” sermons, he would call on colonists, also young people, to examine their lives. He would preach of god’s sweetness and beauty, but at the same time he would warn the listeners to pay attention to the bibles teachings. Otherwise, they would be sinners.
They believed that religion gave them the right to conquer new land, because they “came to serve God and to get rich, as all men wish to do,” which Bernal Diaz del Castillo said while working with Hernán Cortés in the conquest of Mexico. Mendicant friars, Jesuits, and priests traveled across the New World to preach Catholicism in hopes of converting the non-Catholics. Religious values were one of the main motivations for conquistadors, because they felt more powerful and superior. The progress of Spanish colonization was shaped by several factors involving war, disease, and religion. The main motivation for colonization during this time period were the “Three G’s” - gold, gaining riches and wealth; glory, success during war; and gospel, spreading religion.
Religion was a flourishing entity among society and politics both in Colonial America and Great Britain. It gave way to righteousness for a certain cause at that time or a way to assure leadership was valid among citizens of that particular country most commonly amid the Monarch rule over Great Britain and and later Parliament. Religion had a great power of influence over the people and the way they thought about the future of their country, in particular, Colonial America and the justification of the American Revolution against England. Regarding documents from key revolutionary figures and Sermons both hailing and denouncing the Revolution, and the ideas Americans had as religion being a rationale of their pursuits, only then can religion
In order to continue the legacy of Pope Innocent IV, Pope Alexander resumed the conflict between the government and papacy (Alexander IV). Throughout the expansion of Europe, the power of the popes became higher. Many citizens, including Pope Alexander fought to do away with Kings and Queens and keep only the Popes. Pope Alexander hoped to win the argument and that popes should be in charge because his greedy heart wanted to gain power and control. In addition to continuing Pope Innocent IV’s legacy, Pope Alexander also worked to bring communities
The Spanish, Dutch, Swedish, and English all played a major role in developing the great America. With each of their own exploring and colonizing skills, the countries had their different goals to achieve. Many of the colonies mainly desired religious freedom. However, some also just wanted profit. Such as the Dutch, who journeyed to America to spread their religion and find some type of gold or anything valuable.
Patrick Henry’s techniques used in his speech In Patrick Henry’s speech the most emerged thing that was said “Give me liberty or give me death” In order for Patrick Henry to have the colonists to feel vengeful he basically telling the colonists that they can depend on him and he is telling them that he is a good person and all about doing the right thing to have freedom he is very believing and patriotic. He says that he appreciates and completely respects what others has said at the convention but he believes in things a lot differently and would like to share his opinion everyone. He lets them know that he is worth trusting. During the 1700s at the time, people’s interests were all on trying to fight for
Religion played a big role in the civil war. Both the north and the south believed that God was suporting them. They thought that whichever one won, meant that God wanted them to win. The blood shed was seen as a good thing on both sides. The north believed that the more blood was shed the more cleanse we will be of our sin.
How did it effect the people of the middle ages directly? The Magna Carta had a strong effect on the English people of the middle ages; it protected them from corruption of the king as well as other law officials. To understand the Magna Carta, we must first look at what was happening before it was composed, that lead up to the making of this document. The Crusades, also known as the “Holy Wars” were taking place during this time. King Richard preferred to fight in wars over dealing with the governmental side of ruling a country, and he went out to join the fighting.
Freedom to Prosecute Religion Colonial America is often thought of as a safe haven from religious persecution. Future colonists had been persecuted for not accepting their countries ' religious doctrine and were willing to travel long distances in search of religious freedom. Religious freedom would still be far from grasp as Puritans would continue their homelands traditions of persecution for many more years. Puritans, unlike the Pilgrims (who sought to completely separate from the Church of England), wanted to purify the Church. As followers of John Calvin, they believed that God was all powerful and completely sovereign.
Also the Declaration of Independence caused the war by angering the British in 1776. I strongly agreed with this document that gave us freedom but the British did not sadly. So I joined Washington to fight the war. I remember when we had victories at the early wars like at Princeton and Trenton which gave me as well as other soldiers hope for winning more battles. The first reason I will re-enlist is the hope that Thomas Paine gave all of us.
The Edict of Milan (313) was a milestone document promising “to give both to Christians and to all others free facility to follow the religion which each may desire”. Although on the surface it appears that the Edict of Milan was a genuine attempt to give equality before the law to Christians, who were severely persecuted under the previous Emperor Diocletian (r. 284- 305), in reality, a number of political, social and ideological influences on Emperors Constantine (r. 306- 337) and Licinius (r. 308- 324) reveal further motivations for the creation of the edict; primarily among these factors- their political cunning. The political context of the time period gives reasoning to Constantine’s conversion to Christianity, and thereby his motives for the creation of the edict. The Edict of Milan was written in 313 CE; directly following a victory by Constantine at Milvian Bridge in 312, which Constantine attributed to a sign from the Christian God. (1) Constantine believed the Christian God to be the most powerful of all the Gods; to not show support for the Christian God could mean to incur his wrath, but to make peace with him was to have a
By the end of the war, the loyalty that the Colonies had to England was gone. Before the war the Colonist would 've done anything for Britain and would fight till the death for them. This could be seen for the many wars that the Colonist aid England in even though they didn’t why they were fighting. In Document C, George Washington wrote a letter to Robert Orme showing his dying love to be in service for General Braddock and the British empire quoting, “ believing a more favourable opportunity cannot offer, than to serve under a Gentleman of General Braddock’s abilities and experience”. Serving for British could have one of the most honorable thing that the Colonist could have done.
