The Black death, along with taking down Europe’s economy, also affected the way of life, and the church’s power. When the black death struck the church also started to lose it’s power. People started to abandon the church 's and piety, for more self indulgent ways of life such as Hedonism(Green).

This also lead to protestant reformation when the church really lost it’s power(Green).

The Pope was bad and people blamed St. Catherine for bringing him back. St. Catherine lost all of her friends (Glavich 50). She was given stigmata, which was Christ’s wounds after the crucifixion. These wounds were invisible until her death. Knowing Christ’s crucifixion was the only thing that kept her strong.
When everyone in camp was crying and asking where God was as they all watched the boy struggle to cling on to life, Elie had thought to himself that God was there “hanging…from [the] gallows”, symbolizing his loss of faith in God. From then on, as Rosh Hashanah passed, Elie felt intense hatred for God as He did nothing to help the thousands of people suffering and being murdered. Elie refused to sanctify God’s name because of the immense pain He was causing, and felt angry that others in the camp continued to worship Him. Elie felt “terribly alone in a world without God, without man” and “without love or mercy”. As everyone prayed, Elie felt like “an observer [and] a stranger” because he had disconnected from God, and as he defiantly continued to eat instead of fasting for Yom Kippur, Elie “felt a great void opening” inside him as his last bit of trust in God faded.
by the mean and unkind people in the world. While the families were in hiding, Anne, as well as everyone else, was upset by the fact that they had to hide from the Germans, they had to do this, because if they didn’t they would be sent to a concentration camp, and be put to their deaths. Anne was upset about this but she said “Were not the only people that have had to suffer.”(Frank,510) During the holocaust, many people were treated badly based on religion. It all happened because of the unkind people, Hitler, his followers, and the Germans. Peter says in anger “Look at us hiding for 2 years not being able to move.” (Frank, 510) The people that are hiding in the annex are only there because they don’t want to get sent to a concentration camp, or be put to their death.

The puritan’s way of farming and letting their stock run free changed the ecosystem disrupting the food supply for Native Americans. The puritans impact of the Natives were negative, it caused hunger, death and the loss of
"The Black Death did not only kill peasants, but every class and social order were decimated" (Barton), according to Judith Barton, even the King’s daughter succumbed to the Plague, not to mention a multitude of Church priests and clergymen. As a consequence, "newer less educated and less devoted men" began to enter the hierarchy of the Church ranks to replace the demised priests and clergymen, which hugely destabilized the Church’s long-existed and fixed structure; Also, the authority
Dear Bartolome de las Casas, I have read your The Devastation of the Indies, and I want you to know that I share the same sentiments with you. I am in deep sorrow because of the cruelty and violence directed to Indians, and such a behavior deserves nothing but condemnation and censure. I have devoted three years to the work of restoring Christianity in Western India, because I believe that people have to know about Christ (Knight, 2012). I support your claim that Natives are constantly cheated and betrayed by their conquerors (La Casas, 1552, p. 31). Further, I am greatly appalled with how families commit suicide together in despair because of the actions of the Spanish.
This event undermined everything that Brown had believed in, namely his religion, and fundamentally broke him, causing his gloom. This is shown later in the text when “On the Sabbath Day, when the congregation were singing a holy psalm, he [Brown] could not listen because an anthem of sin rushed loudly on his ear.” This shows that he could no longer listen to and be joyfully about his religion, as all he could think about was the sad fact that everyone there was a sinner. On that fateful night in the woods Brown experiences a gathering of evil that would change his perception of life and religion. This event, while it may have been a dream, was real enough to Brown that it would replace any joy in his life with gloom for the rest of his years. Knowing the truth that all of his neighbors and friends were satanic worshipers was certainly justification enough for his withdrawal and
When the soldiers returned back home after fighting the war in Europe, they brought the Spanish Flu with them (Bailey, Dickin). The Spanish Flu was a deadly disease which was a cause of great tension in Canada , as it killed 21 million people, 50 000 of which were Canadian (Bailey, Dickin). In the same way, this violent strain of flu wiped out whole villages’ altogether as well as forced more people to wear masks out of fear of contamination (Bailey, Dickin). Consequently, the spreading of the Spanish Flu led to uneasiness in
