This was became a powerful inspiration to Serbian people who seeked for freedom under the Ottoman rule. Another cause was the resurrection of the Serbian patriarchate which reminded people if the Serbian rule. The church maintained old Serbian traditions of medieval Serbia which encouraged the rise of nationalism and national identity, one of the key causes of the Serbian revolution. Explain the background to the Revolution. Consider social, political, cultural, economic and other factors, as well as internal and external conditions.
The concept of servant leadership has been around for thousands of years but did not see wide spread popularization until the modern movement. There has been a long-standing association with servant leadership and the teachings of Christianity and it’s many branches. However, there has been many other religions and cultures that have independently developed and cultivated servant leadership values. Sikhism and Japanese cultures are two independent examples of how servant leadership values have arisen in two different walks of life. Sikhism is a monotheistic religion that was established in the early 15th century, which incorporates the essence of servant leadership in many of its own core values and beliefs (McLeod, 2017).
The Christian Kingdom of Armenia and the Muslim Ottoman Empire had been neighbors for centuries. Tensions arose once Armenia merged into their bordering Empire in the fifteenth century. Turkish and Armenian nationalities became ruled under one territory, and a clear foreshadowing of a severe confrontation arose. History has proven that the intertwinement of different religions does not produce peace and harmony, but rather the opposite. Taner Akçam is one of the first Turkish scholars to openly acknowledge and discuss the Armenian Genocide.
The religious factor and its influence on the political life in the Byzantine Empire In the reign of Hercules 610-641 AD The viewer to the history of the Byzantine Empire will find many emperors who have made the effort to keep their survival as a political entity has its position and influence in the middle Ages, and perhaps the most prominent of those emperors was Emperor Hercules, which enables access to power in 610 and lasted until the year 641 AD. The reign of Hercules permeated many of the political and religious events that have had a significant impact on both the Byzantine Empire and the era of the Middle Age.
Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionistic science fiction film, directed by Fritz Lang. Much of the plot is established following influences of the first world war, and the culture of the Weimar Republic in Germany. Although criticised for its allusions to communism in the resolution of the film, Lang explores mostly themes of industrialisation and mass production, which, coincidentally, were two developments that provided a large influence in the First World War. Lang also explores themes of the Weimer view of American modernity, communism and fascist rule. Politically, this film was shot after WWI, meaning many of its influences were extracted from the horrors of the First World War.
Nubia adopted a form of Coptic writing which was used in many religious writings in Christian churches. Coptic was largely based on the Greek language, which had been influenced by the Phoenician language and alphabet. Both used letter systems of symbols that represented sounds, both had the similar origin, and both influenced the language we have today. Both Nubia and Phoenicia were influential civilizations that educate modern people about the spread of ideas, how civilizations interact, and how ancient people lived their lives daily. Although they had many differences, fundamentally, Phoenicia and Nubia were some of the most similar civilizations of the time.
Throughout history, many countries were colonized by stronger forces. India is no different; it was colonized by the British during the mid 18th century until the 20th centuries, which is the combination of the eras, also known as the “British rule in Burma”and “British Raj.” Often, it is arguable whether colonization had an influence in forming a societal or cultural aspects of the country that is being occupied. Specifically, if the British colonization of India shaped and had an impact on the culture, education and government rule in India.
The second example I will be looking at is the European view of the Orient, epitomized in the work of Edward Said. Of course, it is important to note that while the Orient idea was largely past into history, it has reminiscents even in our day The most important set of events in the Middle Ages regarding Islam is the Crusades, which gave a sense of territorial identity to an otherwise highly fragmented Europe2. In the unification against the Islamic, or more particularly the Turkish threat, Europe found its identity and that it was compulsory to be unified for survival. Pius II, talking of the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, was one of the first figures to have used the word "Europeans"3. However, the European identity was not only formed in opposition to Islam, but also conflict between medieval Europeans.
The Church was still in a high position of power from the previous period, the Middle Ages, a fact that would soon change. Famous figures such as Martin Luther, John Calvin, and Henry VIII would question the Church 's authority and forever change how Christianity was viewed. After Martin Luther, there would be a new branch of Christianity known as Protestantism. He redefined the Christian Doctrine. Sola Fide, Wars, and the Protestant denominations, prompted by Martin Luther’s actions and ideas, molded Western Civilization (Elton).
Religion in the Medieval Times was dominated by Christianity; hence, the Catholic Church was the only church in Europe. The Catholic Church was the most influential establishment in medieval times, its effect permeated every element of people 's lives. The Church controlled the calendar and marked important stages of an individual 's life such as: marriage, baptism, and the eucharist. The Church also taught the meaning of life and the afterlife. The regular church, consisted of men and women who had promise vows of celibacy, obedience and poverty.
"Song of the Sky Loom" and "Husewifery" share similar and different points of views to receive God's grace. The poets express how they want to receive the grace. Both poets of "Song of the Sky Loom" by Tewa people and "Husewifery" by Edward Taylor use extended metaphor to explore the concept of grace masterfully. "Song of the Sky Loom" by Tewa people, demonstrates how the Tewa people work hard for their gods. They prepare gifts to their gods for a garment in return.
The Bosnian Genocide also known as the Bosnian War or Crisis is a direct result from internal and external neglect. In order for an attack to be considered a genocide a systematic destruction of a group of people because of their ethnicity, nationality, religion, or race must occur. In Bosnia and Herzegovina it did. The overthrow and collapse of governments brought forth new ideas and ideologies that allowed for an extremist goal of power to spread. An international communities miscalculation and oversight, led to disastrous aid that only hurt the country's situation.
Research is pivotal to the safe and effective practice of medicine. As new developments arise, approaches to medicine and our understanding of normal human biology require more sophisticated processes. With this increased recognition, has too been the addition of external influences, such as psychological, religious and social components of health and illness not previously seen. Although the essence of research study has taken a predominately scientific worldview, there is also a biblical imperative to consider. Merriam-Webster defines worldview as a comprehensive conception of the world for a specific standpoint (Merriam-Webster, n.d.).
According to Nicholi Jr. (2002) our worldview, “helps us understand where we come from, our heritage; who we are, our identity; why we exist on this planet, our purpose; what drives us, our motivation; and where we are going, our destiny” (p. 7). The biggest strength of a worldview is that it enables an individual to form a theory of his or her own reality. The individual then utilizes this concept of reality and its ideals to understand the world in which they live in. For instance, my Christian Worldview is solely based on the solid foundation of God’s inspired Word.
