Considered revolutionary for the time due to its outlooks on the Catholic Church and on the concept of human sexuality, Niccolò Machiavelli’s Mandragola satisfies the desires and wishes of each character in the play while also revolutionizing the role that the Church has on politics and private matters in society. By the time the play finishes, all characters received what they worked for through their participation in the scheme. In the end, Messer Nicia received an heir and Lucrezia’s mother Sostrata received a grandchild, while Callimaco finally slept with Lucrezia, an arrangement which resulted in him becoming Messer Nicia’s “close friend” (53), where they would “be able to come together at any time and without any suspicion” (53), a relationship which provides her a young lover and a change from her husband. In addition, Ligurio earned payment while Frate Timoteo received money as a part of his bribe. Overall, the means by which the scheme happens successfully results in the domination of science over religion, making love and human sexuality more of something that simply needs satisfying, as part of human nature rather than something sacred and kept only within the boundaries of marriage.
Romeo and Juliet”: True Love Romeo and Juliet is known as one of the most romantic love stories in literary history, furthuring this point is the true love and sincerity between Romeo and Juliet which is justified by religious imagery and language, the overall theme of fate, along with solemn tone regarding love found in the text.

Paralleling these three levels of joy are three souls.
The Catholic Church believes the sacrament of marriage is an opportunity designed to join two souls together and experience a sense of agape love; however the Catholic Church acknowledges a need for an annulment under certain circumstances. The research stated shows the views and understandings of the sacrament of matrimony, the circumstances and explanation of how and when an annulment would be seen as acceptable, then an explanation of an annulment and how a person who has filed for an annulment plays a role in the church and to the society as a whole. Throughout the Bible, there are constant references to marriage. From the first book, God made man and thought he needed a wife; he removed a vital part of the body, a rib, to
Literature has always been enraptured with love and its effects on people. To explore the different aspects and manifestations of love, John Lyly uses his play Galathea to paint his own picture and definition of love that is complex and ever-changing. He explores two main relationships in the play: Galathea and Phillida, and the goddess’ Diana’s nymphs and Cupid. Through these relationships, Lyly shows the types of effects love can have as people discover love with their eyes and heart. Galathea’s dynamic relationships emphasize love’s divinity and power, and his use of eye imagery shows that love is a spiritual experience that can change people for the better or for the worse.

The paper will show the significance of confession by contextaulizing this excerpt within Augustine’s larger text and within the larger paradigm of early Christianity. This excerpt highlights the divergence between ancient understandings of desire/sex and how they relate to the body and early Christian understandings of desire/sex and how they relate to the body. For example, within Galen’s writing, the readers are witness to an understanding of the body as a rational entity: the body never drives one to wanting excessive food or wanting excessive sex. The body is simply looking to satisfy its basic needs in order to sustain itself. Thus we see here two siginficant points.
