Since Scripture states God appoints leadership, Cranmer believed that the Supreme Headship expressed God’s will and it was his duty to serve the King and support him in his endeavors. On February 6, 1536, during Parliamentary sessions, Thomas Cranmer launched into a series of weekly sermons at Paul’s Cross.

A day after Christmas, two years ago, my mom and I set out on an adventure to Nicaragua. We went with a group from our church, led by my mom.

At the summer of my second year in high school, with the encouragement of my family, I enrolled to the Sumer Latin Course in Rome to study not only ecclesiastical Latin but also Catholic culture. Summer’s heat wave swept across the Apennine Peninsula. I sat silently in that church, wearing a shirt and trousers while many tourists fussed around with T- shirts and shorts on. “Ubi anguelus Domini visus erit, tuba victoria super universam terram audietur.”

The United States, it is often thought, was born in rebellion. This is the story reinforced by the Declaration of Independence, and it’s the story promoted by the first elected officials of this country. America has been a nation of protestors -- be it protest against Britain, “savages,” heathens, police, abortion, racism, or taxes -- since its inception. According to the early 19th century Transcendentalists, however, the greatest battle before Americans is the battle for one’s very soul. Dean Grodzins is a Harvard-educated historian, and a visiting scholar at the Massachusetts Historical Society specializing in mid-19th century American history.
Martin Luther Kind writes "I hope this letter finds you strong in faith...will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty" to approach the men with their problems and hope to meet them. Martin Luther clearly wants to meet with these people so they understand each other and that the person against Martin's point will comprehend that Martin wants to be equal. The paragraph is composed of personifying social issues. When it comes to "racial prejudice" he describes them as dark clouds and the "misunderstanding" is seen as the deep fog.

Martin Luther, a German professor and monk, made a large impact on society in the fifteen hundreds. His new ideas of Christianity changed the concept of how religion was viewed and practiced in the 16th century. Within his Ninety-five Theses, he questioned the authority of the Roman Catholic Church and brought to light the corruption surrounding the church while stating how Christianity should be practiced in different ways rather than what is being taught. It is important to understand his stances on religion to explain how different groups reacted to his ideas. While some parts of Europe accepted his ideologies into practice, others reject Luther for many different reasons.
