As the Puritan society of Salem is so fixated and fearful of witchcraft, most individuals were gullible to almost all testimonies made. If the town were not fanatical about the witchcraft and focused on obvious truth, John Proctor may have lived to raise his children and live a prosper life but his personal integrity cost him his life. This leads on to character Giles Corey, who demonstrates true personal
Throughout the Salem Witch Trials John Proctor never accepts the lies of the people, he sees through the fear and tries to convince the people that they are making an error. Proctor maintains a rock-solid belief during the entire story, and his beliefs do not change, however his attitude toward the people in Salem does change as the trials grow in size. It’s the fact that Proctors perpendicular beliefs leading to his death that make him a tragic hero and a martyr, since his final refusal to accept the lies send him to the rope. Proctors changes throughout the story also cause the people of the village to look down on him after outbursts of rage. It is Proctor’s beliefs and qualities that stop him from going along with the trials.
It was against the law not to attend church where people were arranged by gender. discovery education tells us the people of Salem believed that all sins should be punished. Even the littlest sin can get you in big trouble. They had such strong faith in this “God” that every bad thing that happened to you that no one could control ( sick child, rotten crop, miscarriage etc.) was a punishment for sinful behavior.
I do not think that people should get bullied just because of their physical appearance the way they speak or the religion they practice. In addition I compare myself to Rev. Hale from the play the Crucible. He was one of the few characters in the play that was able to stand up for what he believed in. In the play, he quits the court because he knew that all what the girls were saying were lies.
Abigail was trying to get John wife hung at the gallows for witchery and it was a false accusation. All John had to do was write down and sign on a document that he was rightly charged for witchery and the paper was to be hung on the church door. He would not give the document to the court after he had signed it because the court had take his life and soul, so all he wanted was to keep his name. In my opinion this was a tragedy in itself but heroic at the same time because John sacrificed himself to save his wife and his name from being branded as witchery.
After his affair he wanted to be a more truthful man than he was. Towards the end of the play Proctor is confessing to witchcraft but refuses to involve anyone else. He discovered that the church was going to post his confession on the church door so he ripped the document in pieces. Proctor says, “Because it is my name! Because I cannot have another lie in my life!
While he himself is a Puritan, he would want to strive for helping others instead of just helping himself. He was asked to bring witches to trial lawfully and with proof, but alas he just profited from the many accusations of his. In the truth the irony of this whole situation is that during these events the holy Puritans threw their beliefs out the metaphorical window. And in doing so turned their civilized village to and savage society. Option B With several judges coming to salem to commence the trials of the few soon to be the many.
He accepts that the witch trials are not true. He wants to save everyone that is still alive and accused. Since he no longer believes in the witch trials, he tries to get the accused to lie. Hale wants Goody Proctor to convince John Proctor to lie and save his own life. Something else he loses faith in, is the law.
Many innocent people died in the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts. If you were accused of being a witch or one with the devil, you would be sentenced to death or put in prison. The only one to blame for the deaths of the individuals is the Puritan Society. Without their absent minds, none of the deaths would have happened. The Puritan Society is very religious, therefore they believed strongly in going to church and most importantly in God.
The minister himself should be able to spot the devils work, yet he cannot, because he is too holy. However, God, the Holy of Holies, sees the devil’s path, and the minister cannot. Governor William Phipps, we need to stop killing innocent people, and discover the actual truth, instead of believing some girls, who confessed to save themselves. What selfish people we have become to allow someone else to die in order for us to live a better life than before. I want you to end these trials immediately (Call to
In society people judge by seeing what 's on the outside and don 't know what 's happening on the inside of a person or the whole truth to something. In other words, they judge a book by it’s cover. In “To Kill A Mockingbird”, Harper Lee shows us why not to judge a book by it’s cover. Jem and Scout think Mrs.Dubose is plain mean when really she 's a morphine addict, Aunt Alexandra doesn 't see any usefulness in Calpurnia but in reality Atticus couldn 't of raised the kids the way he did without her, and everyone thinks Boo Radleys a killer when actually he just wants friends and he 's the one who saves the children. In our world today people assume that someone that looks okay on the outside is doing fine when they could be suffering in silence from bullying, and people who don’t see global warming may not consider the issues even though it is a real problem.
The English reformation started because Henry wanted to divorce his 1st wife, Catherine of Aragon, but back in centry it was not a simple issue, or decision to make, in fact it was extremely complex. The Roman Catholic Church believed that marriage was for life. They did not recognise, let alone support, divorce. Henry the VIII was a harsh man, he executed his wives and he did in fact commit many sins. As it says it in to bible (Romans 13:9)““You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shal l not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbour as
