During the fifteenth century the Catholic Church was in control of everything and believed that law was the way to keep order. Then, a reformer named Martin Luther came amidst. Although Martin Luther disagreed with the practice of indulgences, distrust in different powers through religions, and salvation through good works, he took action and wrote his 95 theses, affecting people politically, socially, and economically, all of which led to a reformation of the Catholic Church and new faith. In 1517, many citizens of Germany had many political views about Luther. Despite Luther facing protests and riots against his beliefs, he was able to give people a different vision of faith.
On the other hand, the government had reasons to why they needed to put down the rebellion. One of the reasons behind why the government battled against the rebellions was because they felt as though the farmer had bad intentions and were attempting to gain more power. Also, they were simply trying to shield the courthouses from any sorts of destruction. As a result, some rebellions, unfortunately, were killed or wounded. However, I would still consider them to be on the wrong side since they were basically taking money from individuals until they didn 't have anything left.
The national assembly tackled the unfair tax system which taxed peasants more than those who were wealthy noblemen. This was a big step forward to fixing the rigid social structure of France and opposing the monarchy’s oppression of peasants. Additionally, Louis was convicted of crimes such as conspiring against liberty. He was later executed on January 21, 1793. (Scandiffio) This shows that the monarchy was seen as very detrimental to the ideal of liberty, the conviction and execution of the king marked the end of the monarchy which was formerly a vital feature of the Old Regime.
Bradford’s religious Puritan views were very important to him and he wanted to make sure the people of New England would have a Puritan church so that they could practice their religion without interference from England because in England they were forced to be part of the Church of England. People such as Thomas Morton did not fancy to William Bradford. Morton’s Anglican ways, his dancing, drinking, and building of the Maypole made Bradford
The north believed that the more blood was shed the more cleanse we will be of our sin. As for the south, blood was necessary in order to win the war. Also, a new religion was formed in the camping grounds questioning whether the soldiers really believed in God. Finally, religion path the way for African Americans to finally be free. Initially the North joined the war to save the Union.
This caused peasants to riot and many of his reforms were abolished. Joseph II ended up dying as a hated man. Catherine the Great did not even try to make reforms in favor of the people. In 1785 she freed her nobles of both military service and taxes. In 1781, despite making some positive political reforms, such as getting rid of his rigid class system, Frederick the Great found it necessary to employ soldiers to spy on his citizens to make sure they did not have illegal roasted
He said “They threw out the priests. And then Bokonon, cynically and playfully, invented a new religion.” (Vonnegut 172) Castle also said “Well, when it became evident that no governmental or economic reform was going to make the people much less miserable, the religion became the one real instrument of hope. Truth was the enemy of the people, because the truth was so terrible. so Bokonon made it his business to provide the people with better and better lies.” (Vonnegut
Why? The negative because they proved that anger isnt a concrete reason why the townsmen were so bloodthirsty and murderous. When they were referncing the Bible, it states that people should not reflect the evil done to them but to forgive them for their sins. Did you change your mind from your original view point? No because personally I focus on the causes of things, such as the cause of the Americain Revolution.
He believed the Pope should not be adorned with riches but rather with poverty. The Pope should not be a political leader” (Section 8: The Church in the Late Middle Ages and the Renaissance). John Wycliffe even went as far as to calling the doctrine of the Church that was for the indulgences “a manifold blasphemy against Christ” (John Wycliffe (c.1330-1384): “On Indulgences”). These indulgences were eventually revoked thanks to Martin Luther, Wycliffe, and several supporters. After the indulgences were put to a stop, the authority of the Church changed because of the opposition of Martin Luther and the spread of
In addition, Protestantism helped a lot during this movement because its belief is that God saved everyone by His faith to Jesus Christ, himself. Martin Luther was strict about these rules of the Protestant Reformation. He felt that people should confess their sins, and depending on how bad the sin is, he thinks that God should judge it. Simultaneously, he didn’t believe that “indulgences,” or state of satisfaction, can pay off the price for one’s sin because he believes that it is not holy nor righteous (“Martin Luther”). In the end, this movement was spread to many countries of Europe such as Germany, Switzerland, Spain, and many
He published the 95 theses protesting against various clerical abuses such as the sale of indulgences. When the Rebellion arose Luther originally said that both sides were wrong and needed to come to a peaceful agreement in “Admonition to Peace: A Reply to the Twelve Articles." Luther later published "Against the Murdering and Robbing Hordes of Peasants," which was his most notorious pamphlet. In this article, he took a strong stance against the peasants and condemned them as traitors who had violated their oaths of obedience. Luther made it clear that he did not condone the rebellion and he was not to be faulted for the peasants misconceiving his works as an encouragement to rebel.
During the early sixteenth century the Church began to experience loss of respect and many challenges due to the corruption within the church. Many began to think the church was dying. This would cause the reformation. Throughout the age of reformation, the political and social spheres of Europe were also significantly affected, as well as the religious movement, through Martin Luther, the printing press, and the opinions of the people. The reformation is often viewed as a religious movement, yet it also affected the political and social aspects of Europe as well.
He argued that Christians will be disturbing the peace and those who do are rebelling and are disobedient. If you become disobedient to the king, you are also disobeying God. Boucher argues that if God wanted them to have independence they would have had it, and they should be grateful and thankful with our without it. He says “Obedience to government is every man’s duty because it is ever man’s interest; but it is particularly incumbent on Christians, it is enjoined by the positive commands of God.” (#32; pg. 101) Boucher had many unpersuasive arguments.
In document E (John Cotton, “Limitation of Government”), the author says that the power of the government should be limited, and that God should have the ultimate power, not men. This reinforces the idea that puritans followed biblical law and based their society on religious ideas because the author of the document even states that religious figures should limit their authority and only do things that will benefit the people. Additionally, in document D (William Bradford), it’s shown that the puritans are not very tolerant of others. The document was written after the colonists attacked a Pequot river village during the Pequot war. The document’s intended audience is to the puritans of Connecticut, who were at war with the Pequot Indians.
