How did it effect the people of the middle ages directly? The Magna Carta had a strong effect on the English people of the middle ages; it protected them from corruption of the king as well as other law officials. To understand the Magna Carta, we must first look at what was happening before it was composed, that lead up to the making of this document. The Crusades, also known as the “Holy Wars” were taking place during this time. King Richard preferred to fight in wars over dealing with the governmental side of ruling a country, and he went out to join the fighting.

The speaker creates an impression that denotes a sign of urgency by repeating the word “wind” through the poem. The entry of sin, fall of man, and the ultimate sacrifice by Jesus followed urgent decisions and risks equated to the pattern of wind. For instance, the description of the decay of a farmhouse in the first stanza ricochets the prophetic description of Jerusalem just before the destruction and the second advent as recounted by Christ. The narrator also uses imagery in some of the phrases in the initial stanza to create a clear message of sin and redemption. Exemplified by, the use of “knifing in the wounds” (I, 15) and “whipping the shoulders worry-bowed too soon" (I, 13) which pointed to the painful death of Christ through crucifixion.
In order to continue the legacy of Pope Innocent IV, Pope Alexander resumed the conflict between the government and papacy (Alexander IV). Throughout the expansion of Europe, the power of the popes became higher. Many citizens, including Pope Alexander fought to do away with Kings and Queens and keep only the Popes. Pope Alexander hoped to win the argument and that popes should be in charge because his greedy heart wanted to gain power and control. In addition to continuing Pope Innocent IV’s legacy, Pope Alexander also worked to bring communities
The Pope was competing for political power in Italy, and had to fight off invasions from other countries. In addition, Pope Leo X (son of Lorenzo de Medici), was a great patron (contributes money) of arts and artists to create very expensive works, however the Pope paid for the art with the Church’s money. The church paid for this by having the peasants pay higher tithes (taxes to the church) and increasing the cost of baptisms and marriages. The use of indulgences was also a major reason people wanted a reform. An indulgence is a pardon for their sins.
Throughout history, the Catholic Church had a strong influence among many time periods especially the Middle Age’s. During the Middle Ages the Catholic Church had influenced the Middle Age’s society by influencing the law, social status, and the educational system. The Church had a powerful influence upon the law; substantially, a very vast authority was exercised by the ecclesiastical courts. To demonstrate the massive influence that the church had, Simon Newman, president of Mount St. Mary’s University mentioned, “During the later Middle Ages, the law of Europe was governed by the Church. An entire jurisdiction was exercised by the church which protected the widows,
Outline 2 In medieval Europe the dominant religion was roman catholicism, and many believed fervently in the teachings of the church. Therefore in many ways the church greatly shaped the lives of average europeans. Although religion is not practiced in europe today the same way it was practiced in the middle ages it is still important to analyze it, because it has had a great impact on Europe's development. Some of the characteristics of medieval religion are a belief in a devil that manifests itself in the world, a belief that relics imparted miracles to those around them, and a belief that saints would help those that love them. A key part of medieval religion was a belief that the devil could and had manifested in the world to lead astray
They wanted to secure more territory than Portugal and to demonstrate their superiority through their fief. At the time, Spain was also very religiously driven and wanted to convert as many people as possible to Catholicism. Although all of these intentions seem more or less moral, it ended in millions of deaths, one of, if not the largest slave trade in all of history, and also forced millions of people under the rule of barbaric, greed soiled
In his take of the revolution, He was saying that the consequences of war will be big, not only in temporal distress, but also with an evil that extends itself into eternity. During the war against British forces, the continental army constantly needed chaplains to remind them why they are in battle and why they serve such an important cause. Military Chaplains would often need to remind soldiers of their devotion to God and country to keep spirits high when they were in fear of their own lives. One of the most admired military chaplains during the revolution was Abiel Leonard, who was the most favorited by Washington. He had poured everything into maintaining the “godly fervor” of the continental Army.
But is it possible that violence and war have had a positive effect on human development? Wars are usually some type of competition for resources. War was the beginning of agriculture. The war can be the basis of political leadership. For example, in the ancient world, as in the Game of Thrones, successful war leaders build up a retinue of fighters in order to keep them happy, the war leaders need to supply a constant flow of booty, the spoils of war.
Jerusalem was important to the Christians because it was known as the Holy Land. It was know as the Holy Land because it was holding Jesus’ tomb and it was where Jesus was said to be crucified.
