Shapin’s thesis is thought to be illustrated through the first line in the book, “There was no such thing as the Scientific Revolution, and this is a book about it” (1). Steven Shapin expounds on this throughout the book as he portrays the many scientific findings during this time but states that it is not a revolution. He believes that there is not one revolutionary change that would allow this time to be considered the Scientific Revolution. There were scientific findings before the 16th century and there were more to follow the 18th century. Shapin’s thesis covers that there was no specific scientific distinction between the 17th century and the rest of time for this period to stand out and be a revolution but he explains that the Scientific Revolution is more of a process.
Of these manuscripts #88, #221, #429, #635, and #636 are found in the margins of the manuscripts. All of the manuscripts discovered today date no earlier than the 14th century. Furthermore, the Johannine Comma is found in later versions of the Vulgate from around the middle ages. Additionally, there is an earlier occurrence of the Johannine Comma clause from a Spanish Vulgates dating back to the middle of the 7th century.

The Whole Bushel The book is shrouded in mystery as there have never been any valid answers to questions regarding the book. As such, throughout the years scientists have tried to find answers to the following questions: • Who is the author or scribe of the book? • Why did the scribe or creator of the book create such a book? • Why is one page dedicated to the devil and the opposite page to the heavenly city? • How many scribes were involved in writing the book?
The essay first explores the representation of power in the novel as it relates to certain binaries such as ‘self’ and ‘other’; ‘just and ‘unjust’; and ‘powerful’ and ‘vulnerable’. Secondly, the novel’s resolution of key conflicts and how alterities are affirmed will be discussed. The Oxford English Dictionary defines colonialism as an “alleged policy of exploitation of backward or weak peoples by a large power”. Waiting for the Barbarians is set in an unspecified place and time but serves as an as an allegory to imperial or colonial atrocities that were committed by those in power. In this novel, Coetzee considers the nature of oppression and its effect on both the oppressor and the oppressed.
(It remains difficult to translate). The law-texts survived incompletely and corruptly between the fourteenth and the sixteenth centuries’ manuscripts. The first set down on parchment of the law was inherited customs passed orally generation to generation.

Aesop’s Fables in The Modern World Aesop is the originator of this genre (fables); the Greek people chose the name and created a several legends about Aesop. In Norton Anthology of Western Literature book it says about him, “He had supposedly been a slave and was known for his ugliness and outspokenness. But there is no reason to believe that this has any historical accuracy. The stories about Aesop gave the Greeks and Romans a way of talking about the fables.” He gives a new way to represent ancient culture of the Greeks and Romans differently than Homer. Several writers wrote Aesop’s Fables from the globe, they are not told in specific time or for chosen communities.

The oldest structures of power -empires - were multicultural.
