and I limp’”(67). The character of Marissa is an accurate example of why women would join convents in Medieval Europe. To join a convent or monastery, one must make a vow of chastity. When the pretty girls arrived and the young boys were attracted to them and tried to resist temptation, “The advent of the two young women made the younger monks restless and distracted, and it was best to get them out of sight” (74).

On of the modes of persuasion that can be read in this article is pathos. This is due to the author's use of emotion that really draws the reader. Throughout the beginning of the article the author gives a story on what it was like going through life as a protestant and then becoming a pastor, but later on in his career coming to the full understanding of what the church is and what it stands for to later on convert and become a priest.

The fact that these Reformers stuck to their beliefs even when people were being banished for their Protestant views was further evidence that these people of the Reformation had strong beliefs in it. “Between 1525 and 1535 a number of English reformers were living in exile in Europe, unwelcome in Henrician England.” Youth who did not truly believe in the Reformation would not have had this type of commitment. This type of commitment would only lie in the hearts of people who truly believed in what they were reforming. Reflecting back to what was pointed out earlier, the reformers had goals for the future of the church and society.
October 31, 1517 was a historic day that sparked 3 Reformations some believe. It was the start of the Protestant Reformation led by Martin Luther who nailed his 95 Theses on the door in a church in Wittenberg that day.

I am going to be viewing these Reformations as two distinct and different reformations each with a different purpose.

Analysis on the Roles of Gender in Rudolfo Anaya's Bless Me, Ultima Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya narrates the story of Antonio Márez y Lunas, a seven year old boy who lives to learn that the journey to manhood is about learning to make decisions on his own. In the story, his mother hopes for Antonio to become a priest, while his father desires him to become one of the llano.

Quakerism, interchangeably known as the Society of Friends, is a denomination of Protestant Christianity.

In this representation of Judith being physically in the act of beheading Holofernes, Caravaggio made the distinct choice to stray from the established pictorial traditions of the Book of Judith created by previous artists. For centuries, this scene had been demonstrated by showing Judith and her maid leaving the tent carrying the head of Holofernes or with the two women in the tent with the general’s head-less body visible in the background; that is, until Donatello’s depiction in the mid-fifteenth century with his famous bronze sculpture that implies the courage of commune against oppression. Although, Donatello’s version is still more about the anticipation of the action, and not the beheading itself. Caravaggio has left us with the impression
In the essay, "Did Women have a Renaissance?”, Joan Kelly-Gadol, presents a feminist insight into women's role in society during the Renaissance and how women did not have a Renaissance. While Margaret L. King, who wrote, “Women and High Power”, offers the roles of women and learning from 1300-1800 and argues that women did . The question of, “did women benefit from the Renaissance?”, is an extremely loaded question. Like every argument or question there are two sides to every story. One way, like Margaret L.
