One significant question arises from the discovery of the Necropolis: can this truly be considered the spot of Saint Peter’s tomb? The most important discovery associated with the excavations of the Necropolis was the “trophy of Gaius.” This monument, shaped like an aedicule – a temple – historically marks the graves of the apostles (“Necropolis ‘Scavi’ The Shrine of St Peter ‘Trophy of Gaius’”). In the present case, it would mark the tomb of Saint Peter. The Ecclesiastical History written by Eusebius writes the following: “But I can show the trophies of the apostles. For if you will go to the Vatican or to the Ostian way, you will find the trophies of those who laid the foundations of this church” (“Church History Book II”).
In 1783, when Catherine the great annexed Crimea, it was in pursuit of a decidedly Roman dream: that of restoring the Byzantine empire. This also shows evidence that the Roman Empire is still alive because it had influence on other countries. Another way the Roman Empire lived on was through architecture. One nation such as the United States got some of their architectural from the Roman Empire. One example of this is we have a Senate and a Capitol Hill which, are both ideas we got and developed from the Roman Empire.
The novel is written from the point of view of a unnamed Custom House surveyor, or chief executive of the Custom House, who somehow seems to know more about the characters then they know about themselves. He is telling this story approximately two hundred years after it happened. The Custom House surveyor also seems to have much in common with Hawthorne but the novel should not be taken as a direct mouthpiece of the author's opinions. The narrator seems to be all knowing, yet he is also subjective because he voices his own opinions. Throughout the novel, the Custom House Surveyor is clearly sympathetic to two of the main characters, Hester, the protagonist, and Dimmesdale.
The extent of the work allows for the novel to contain an elaborate plot, delve into several characters, and encompass several themes and universal truths (Burgess, 2014).

My analysis will go around the topic of Nietzsche’s Thus spoke Zarathustra most popular book that talks about the three metamorphoses of the spirit. First of all, I will separate each metamorphosis in a different paragraph. After, I will focus on the point of sum up the same way that Nietzsche describes his three metamorphoses of the spirit. Second, I will concentrate more on the explanation of the pacific signification of each metamorphosis that are camel, lion and child. Furthermore, I will also compose about their reasons of transformation from one metamorphosis to another metamorphosis, such as the spirit change into a camel, then the camel becoming the lion and then at the end the lion becoming the child.

Today I will be analyzing all three versions of The Maltese Falcon film’s the scene I’ve chosen to review the scene where Spade is visited and questioned by police detectives Lt. Dundy and Sergeant Tom Polhaus. Although the films are based on the same novel The Maltese Falcon (1930), they differ in many ways I’ll use the scene I mentioned above to show the differences in mood, setting, the behavior and attitude of the main characters in this scene. The second thing I’ll do is show how breaking down a particular scene before you’ve watched the entire film could lead a first time viewer of the films could create a different conclusion in their minds than the one the films already has. If you have viewed all three films the first thing you may notice is that the place where the detectives visit Spade for questioning varies between the three films. We see that two of the films (1931, 1941) take them to Spades apartment and the other (1936) they meet him a night club or speakeasy as it was called in those days.
The journal article “The Siege of Lisbon and the Second Crusade” written by Alan Forey attempts to provide enough historical evidence to answer questions about the validity of St. Bernard’s direct involvement in the northern fleet’s siege of Lisbon in 1147. Forey immediately brings to the attention of the reader a historical interpretation of letter 308. St. Bernard purportedly wrote letter 308 to the ruler of Portugal, King Afonso Henriques. However, the author expresses concern about the authenticity of the letter. Forey wrote, “This letter first appears in Brito’s Chronica de Cister, published in 1602: and it is generally accepted that this work is based partly on documents which are not genuine.” Forey cites numerous historical sources in an effort to prove that letter 308 is a forgery.

In this quote Burbano, a victim and survivor of the Pulse shooting, shows how quickly the hysteria took over. “In the confusion of the dark, packed club, people dropped to the ground and hid in bathrooms. Many started to run for the exits, grabbing friends and strangers along the way. “I don’t remember screaming. I don’t even remember breathing,” Burbano told ABC News “I just remember dragging my best friend down”” (Zambelich).
