Three ideas from the Edict of Milan that are important are correcting the wrongdoings performed against the Christians, granting religious tolerance, and mandating a speedy process. Undoing all the acts of hatred was important. The Christians were persecuted and taking steps to undo that persecution will lead to the “peace” mentioned in the text. Granting religious tolerance to all, not just Christians, will also lead to peace. If a group of people are being persecuted in society there is no way peace can be met.
He converted to Catholicism just so he could be taken more seriously at masses. Also, he passed the Edict of Nantes just so Protestants have freedom to believe whatever they want. Elizabeth I is a politique because she formed peace between the Protestants and Catholics.

Despite what her religion was, Elizabeth I put everything behind her and focused on the good of her country.
Religion influenced the government of the Puritans. They believed that they each had their own boundaries or power given by the Lord (Doc H). Puritans wanted the church and government to intertwine and aid one another, creating a stronger bond. In addition, the Puritan’s emphasis on religious conformity and the attainment of land for their model society led them to engage in wars with neighboring Indian tribes. For instance, William Bradford fought with Pequot tribe in the Pequot War, believing that God is the source of their victory and therefore praise him (Doc D).
Within the Christian church, the conflict over the final authority on contemporary issues was between the bishops and the emperor. The conflict was never a competition to hold authority but instead was confusion on who should hold it and what should come out of any actions. Two prime examples of the problems that originated from the conflict are Constantine and the bishops dealing with Christianity 's first crises and Charlemagne 's sharing governance with Pope Leo III. Firstly, Constantine 's foundation of the Byzantine Empire was greatly fueled by his desire to have Christianity be the element that unites all peoples he would govern. Christianity was made the official religion of the empire and was thus spread far and wide.
Before the fall of the Roman Empire Constantine the Great faced many oppositions including gaining the support of the Roman people in his conversion to Christianity. Likewise, Clovis the “unifier of the Frankish Kingdom” faced the same oppositions with his conversion. Thus, accounts during the Early Middle Ages can be filled with biased and speculation. Despite, common bias during this time, the account of “The Conversion of Clovis: Two Accounts, 496,” is a genuine historical account of events. Specifically, the account is explanatory not observational, throughout the text it gives details which can be supported.

B. Despite the Mayflower Compact being essentially constructed with the sole purpose of conveying mutual regard for the respective separatists as equals under God, the concordat served as a pioneer model of a social allegiance initiated by voluntary agreement in developing a sovereign government system which epitomizes
Alizade Nigar Lecture – A “The Roman Empire’s persecution of Christianity was inevitable.” To what extent do you agree with this statement? Throughout the history Romans thought of themselves very religious people and attributed their world power to their good relations with Gods. Conquering an area, then bringing its gods to Rome, the “temple of the whole world,” was an ordinary Roman practice. However, when Christianity emerged similarly what historians call “popular religious,” religious groups with broad and wide appeal. According to our historical knowledge, although during the rise of Christianity the Imperial Cult did not dismantle or even discourage this religion, after oberserving the hegemony of Christianity over
Although what Bede wrote is unlikely to be the actual events that took place at the meeting, Bede’s writing can tell us a lot about Northumbria during the conversion period such as how Northumbrian Kings thought that religion was an important part of politics. But more importantly the source shows us how Bede and to some extent the Catholic Church wanted the Northumbrian conversion to be viewed as a major Christian
Spearheading the New Right were evangelical Christian groups such as the Moral Majority, a political group, who were dedicated believers who enjoyed startling success as political fund-raisers and organizers. Moral Majority was important, because it helped to block the adoption of Equal Rights Amendment. Neoconservative thought Though Ronald Reagan was no intellectual, he drew on the ideas of a small but influential group of thinkers known as “neoconservatives.” The neoconservatives championed free-market capitalism liberated from government restraints, and they took tough, harshly anti-Soviet positions in foreign policy.

The battle between the Ottoman Empire and the Holy League known is as the Battle of Lepanto and it is the most important for the Christian religion. It is of great significance because if the Holy League had not won, the Ottoman Empire would have taken over Europe, and destroyed the Christian religion. The forming of the Holy League was important as well. The new naval technique used by the Christian forces and the first success to push back and erode the Ottoman empire were the key concepts to defeat the Ottomans. The well-known crusades were fought between the end of the eleventh century and the late thirteenth century.
While it is true that the original settlers of what is now known as the United States governed themselves on Christian beliefs, the United States itself was formed on the ideas of religious equality. While it can be surmised that the United States was greatly impacted by the teachings of Christianity, it is improper to conclude that the United States
