How could the same individuals with the freeing thoughts of the Enlightenment, also be the same individuals that participated with the haze of the salem witch trials? They are practically complete opposites. The enlightenment was a European time of intellectual movement occurring during (late 17th and 18th centuries) emphasising reason and individualism rather than tradition. However the salem witch trials were forcing people to conform to what others considered to be the right frame of mind. Which, to the church was that any supernatural powers was point blank evil and of the devil and anything beyond understanding and reason is wrong. The whole purpose of the enlightenment however was to encourage individualism rather than tradition, so how could these two
The Crusades in Medieval Europe, from approximately 1069 – 1270 had a significant impact on the teachings and influence of the Catholic Church.

The church was able to foresee the oaths. “…or to do injury to the churches of God or the poor or the widows or the wards or any Christian. But all shall live entirely in accordance with God’s precept.” He believed that if those were to follow God, their behavior and thought processes would be regulated. The church would allow peace and harmony between all. Charlemagne wanted to defend the church due to the power that it provoked. He worked to strengthen the role of the church in order to improve the hierarchical structure and the power of the clergy. Along with the church were the oaths that Charlemagne believed in, to ensure loyalty to all of his subjects. Using these oaths, he believed that fidelity should be promised. “Each one according to his vow and occupation, should now promise to him as emperor the fidelity which he had previously promised to him as king.” Faithfulness could be reached by taking these oaths. They were so much more than a promise, they provided protection over the empire along with important meanings to oneself. It was said that “First, each one voluntarily shall thrive, in accordance with his knowledge and ability, to live wholly in the holy service of God in accordance with the precept of God.” By partaking in these oaths, one would choose to thrive and accomplish tasks within everyday life. God would play a role to keep them on their feet. Charlemagne argued that loyalty and commitment would be important to his empire. With the church and oaths acting together, Charlemagne could base his empire on fairness, safety, and

In the Middle Ages the knights Code of chivalry was apart of the culture. The sacred oaths were meant for the Knights to follow so that they would have strict rules of etiquette and conduct to follow. The Code of chivalry used by the medieval Knights was founded on biblical truths because the church governed people's lives. Through researching the codes of keeping the faith, obeying those in authority, and living by honor and glory it is apparent that the codes were founded on biblical truths.
The Crusades were expeditions done by the Roman Catholic Church in alliance with Middle-Age Kingdoms and Empires. There were a total of nine Crusades during the period of 1095 to 1291, led by Saladin, Richard I "the Lionheart" of England, Pope Urban II, Frederick I the Holy Roman Emperor, etc.
The Crusades started in 1095 when Pope Urban II wanted to take back Jerusalem. I think the results of the Crusades was more positive than negative than positive since people lost interest in them. Not only that, they killed and abused many innocents.

Throughout history, religion has negatively affected its own members. This is especially true with the Mormon Church, a denomination of Christianity founded in the 1820s. This church like any other has helped better people 's lives in spiritual ways. However, there are people that are denied this betterment, people that are discriminated against, and people that are being lied to. This is a problem the church must take ownership of, and solve. Thus, the Mormon Church negatively affects its own members because of its unfair treatment of women, discrimination of homosexuals, and re-writing of church history; ultimately the Mormon church needs to accept it’s faults and create a more accepting and inclusive religion.
During the Middle Ages, the church played an integral role in the lives of individuals. This is best demonstrated by the crusades, where an individual would have traveled to the Holy Land to secure the salvation of one 's ' soul by fighting the barbarians. Relics became connected to this practice, as the crusade acted as an alternative to a pilgrimage. One can observe the power relics had over individuals in the political sphere, as people would swear on them to make decisions, they upheld honor and commitment in war, and ultimately create a cycle of obtaining even more relics.

No, Rome was not right at all to go against Martin Luther, which he was representing the truth in the word of God. One of the traditions and practices Martin Luther opposed in his '95 Theses', was how the Roman Catholic were selling and buying of "indulgences" which supposed to be official papers sold by the Church which supposedly removed the results of one's immoral actions. People could buy indulgences on behalf of others or for themselves. The people also had their right to buy indulgences for wrong actions they planned to commit. In my understanding, the Roman Catholic were using their political power and authority on people who have lack of knowledge of the truth, or knew the truth but was in fear to face the truth about the selling and buying of indulgence until Martin Luther received revelation in
In Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “The Cask of Amontillado” and Zora Neale Hurston’s short story “Sweat” the two characters are consistently belittled by the antagonist in the stories. In “Sweat” Delia is an average housewife, but unfortunately she is in an abusive relationship with her husband named Sykes, who has a tendency to degrade Delia. Throughout the story, Sykes treats Delia horribly and towards the end of the story, Delia finally realizes that she has had enough of her abusive husband because he makes her feel as if she is not worth anything. Due to Sykes’ tendency to degrade her, Delia is considered to be a sympathetic character. The same kind of conflict affects the narrator in Edgar Allan Poe’s story “The Cask of Amontillado.” During the story, the narrator, Montresor, consistently gets put down by his friend Fortunato, who mocked the narrator’s family name. Montresor, being very proud of his family name felt
