The Protestant Reformation was a time of great change in western society. The Roman Catholic Church would be challenged in a way they did not see coming. This was the beginning of many religious feuds, rivalries, and heated debates, some of which are still ongoing today. In 1483, Martin Luther was born in Eisleben, Germany. Although Martin’s father was a miner, he wanted Martin to become a lawyer.
He created a system to support his kingdom and make it thrive. Also, he brought outside knowledge to his kingdom to ensure it grows. He had a close relationship with the churches which gave him the success in his conquest. When combining all of these factors, it shows that he is one of the greatest kings in European history. The reason that Charlemagne was the most powerful king of all of Europe was because of his leadership and character as a king.
Most people assume Bloody Mary’s name comes from her unrestrained murder of Tudor men and woman on the basis of religion. However Queen Mary I was a Scoundrel because of her mass killing in the name of the church. This is shown when she was put in power she worked to return England to Catholicism from the Church of England that her father had previously created. During this she brought back the law against heresy this caused nearly 300 protestants to be burned at the stake giving her the name Bloody Mary. She is important to church history because of her attempt to change the church back to Catholicism.
Relationships between Christianity, Islam, and Judaism were worsened, and the Pope lost a great deal of his power during the Crusades. European politics were shifted dramatically from feudalism to large towns and cities with bustling trade. Monarchs ruled the beginnings of modern European countries. People learned about other cultures and expanded their views of the world because of the effects of the Crusades. A large amount of crucial progress was made in medieval Europe as a result of the Crusades, and the battles fought over Jerusalem created ripples that still show in European countries to this
The Thirty Years War brought all major powers into Europe, including Austria and Spain. By this time in the war, armies are ravaging throughout the Holy Roman Empire. The war continues in 1618 in Bohemia, over the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II attempting to close churches. Cardinal Richelieu decided to help the Protestants, even though he was a Catholic. In 148, the Peace of Westphalia ends all religious wars in Europe and the princes of the Holy Roman Empire gain more freedom and can now choose between three religions.
Originally, they were a reward for pious actions. However, with much corruption through the church, they were morphed into a scheme to take money from misguided Christians. One of the northern humanists, Martin Luther, began protesting this in 1517 (p. 333). Martin Luther’s biggest accomplishment concerning his protests of the Roman Catholic Church would probably be the posting of his 95 theses on the church door at Wittenberg (p. 334). This act of defiance against the church sparked the spread of protestantism.
The introduction of the piece is the same as that of “The Raiders March”, but with strings playing in the background. The A melody begins with the trumpet as the strings fade out (0:07). The first minute and a half of the song is played the same as that of “The Raiders March”, though due to differing sound equalization, some parts stick out more or less than they do in the original. For example, in the third repetition of the A melody, one can more clearly hear the xylophone accompanying the melody here than in “The Raiders March”. The piece begins to differ more significantly after the break following the third repetition of the A melody when the piece modulates down a half step instead of up like in the original (1:37).
She was extremely important to the church, changing it completely during that era. As well as going against her fathers wishes and doing the exact opposite. Bloody Mary reversed her fathers wishes and changed Catholic policies to actively persecuting Protestants. Killing them in brutal ways. This shows how much of an impact queen Mary has had on the church.
Quixote’s theme is first presented in the solo cello part and is soon joined by solo violin and English horn. The second theme is first found in the bass clarinet and tenor tuba. The themes are said to mimic the voices and feelings of the two characters. The piece doesn’t always have a clear-cut form, but it uses elements of concerto and variations. The first theme can we heard in the form of windmills as seen in measure 60-78.
This piece has three movements, Allegro moderato, Adagio di molto, and Allegro ma non tanto. This piece starts off with a slow and expressive solo by the soloist, Alexi Kenney. The change in dynamics, the use of vibrato, and other techniques enhanced his solo. The orchestra then plays with a homophonic texture with some tempo changes. A few fast solos and a few slow ones followed.
Likewise, King Henry VIII triggered the new branch from lutheranism called anglican, and the church called The Anglican Church which still lives to this day. He also paved way to a new reformed branch called the puritans, which were concerned of purifying the english church of any catholic influence left. This also resulted in many succession issues as the successors to the throne were catholic and protestants. Also many wars between the branches sprung from there. Whilst they had different initial reasons and they had carried out different actions in order to reform Christianity, they had come to create different branches and set into action the forever going changes in that
Against the Rapacious and Murdering Peasants: (1525). As the peasants started to revolt against the Catholic Church they began murdering, robbing and violating their oaths. Martin Luther became disgusted with this and wrote Against the Rapacious and murdering Peasants to urge the peasants to stop the fighting and be the better people. Luther showed that he was all about wining the flightless fight. Intellectual 1.
