This event rallied the Christians onto victory and laid to rest any latent desire of Christians to convert to Islam. At the same time, Allen assumes that the appearance of the Holy Lance caused an increase in the desire by Christian crusaders to convert the Muslim, rather than kill them. Peter the Hermit’s most interesting heroics occurred when he attempted to convert Kerbogha to Christianity. Kerbogha a great leader and fierce Muslim warrior refused the offer of conversion and the suggestion of resolving the conflict by using the battle of champions. Allen question Peter’s motives in asking Kerbogha to convert, however, it is Allen’s position that Peter was the type of man who would have ceased upon the appearance of the Holy Lance and then dedicated himself to the conversion of all people to Christianity.

Chinua Achebe; the author of Things Fall Apart was raised by Christian parents who were missionary teachers. His life as a Christian and member of the Ibo tribe at the same time influenced him to write a book depicting pre and post colonization in Africa specifically his hometown, Nigeria.

Due to the fact that this migration account relied on oral stories recorded after the conquest of the Spanish, Christianity plays a changing role in the overall narrative. Chimalpahin added to the account several side notes explaining the religious events happening in Europe during the supposed years of the migration account. An example of this change is present on page 21: “Four Flint, 1080, in which the Benedictine priesthood began at Mount Ancon”. These radical additions change massively the reading of the work since it confronts two different religions in the creation story of the Mexica cult. It must be speculated that the change of dates seen previously aimed at having matching dates in order to incorporate these Christian events in the Codex.
On All Saints Day, October 10th, 1517, Martin Luther wrote a lengthy letter named as “The Ninety-Five Theses” to the Bishop Albert of Mainz (“Martin Luther”). This letter stated that the Bible is the central authority of the Protestant religion and one can attain salvation by their loyal faith to God. “The Ninety-Five Theses” letter became a huge impact for the Protestant Reformation, and it was one of the major reasons why this religion was spread around Europe; however, it also focused on practices from Catholic churches about baptism and absolution (“Martin Luther”). The Protestants used the letter to form their ideas about God and to start their own church denominations. In addition, Protestantism helped a lot during this movement because its belief is that God saved everyone by His faith to Jesus Christ, himself.
Francisco Ribera is the main voice behind the futurist view of prophecy.”(Ford 1978, pg. 66). Thus, “Futurism is a Christian eschatological view that interprets portions of the Book of Revelation and the Book of Daniel as future events in a literal, physical, apocalyptic, and global context.”(Hays, Duvall, Pate 2007, pg.45).

Conclusion BODY Reformation is “a 16th-century movement in Western Europe that aimed at reforming some doctrines and practices of the Roman Catholic Church and resulted in the establishment of the Protestant churches” (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/reformation).

His 95 theses which propounded two central beliefs that the Bible is the central religious authority and that humans may reach salvation only by their faith and not by their deed was to spark the Protestant Reformation.

The Catholic Church was ever after divided and the Protestantism that soon emerged was shaped by the Luther’s ideas. Luther’s writings changed the course of religious and cultural history in the West. His revolutionary ideas served as the catalyst for the eventual breaking away from the Catholic Church.
