The Crusades started in 1095 when Pope Urban II wanted to take back Jerusalem. I think the results of the Crusades was more positive than negative than positive since people lost interest in them. Not only that, they killed and abused many innocents. One of the reasons the Crusades were more negative is because people lost interest in them.
Northern neglect killed reconstruction because the North was worried about the corrupt government. As president, Grant noticed frauds and scandals in government too (Doc. C). Since he was focusing on the scandals and frauds his focus on the Reconstruction split between the frauds and the Reconstruction. They also thought their government was corrupt because there were
b. Socio-cultural forces – The Merrymen are all cut from the same cloth. They are all “thieves” if you will. They like to steal and rebel against the Sheriff. However, it would stand to reason and ask a question about their loyalty to Hood. Sooner or later, I believe they would feel prone to overthrow their leader and give him a run for his money, just as they were with the Sheriff.
This was very relevant at the time, as there was a lot of corruption. Some examples of this would be the monk and the doctor. In the monk's description, he is said to, '[be] hunting-mad' and 'not care a pin if told that hunters were unholy men'. The narrator also says that his is 'fit to be an abbot', which suggests that- even though the monk is very corrupt- the abbots are even more corrupt- making it seem as if there is, even more, corruption in the church. The doctor is not as flawed as the monk but is still corrupt.
However, with the oppression of the English by the Vikings, and the fierce nationalism that sweeps through a country in times of conflict, it could be argued that in response to this, they created their own national hero, Beowulf, and penned his adventures in a National Epic (Dark ages 5-13). The Völsunga saga tells the tales of ancient Norse kings and heroes. One major hero from these tales, Sigemund, spelled as
For example Beatty was trying to help Montag by giving him the option to destroy his problems but instead he had different plans. Unlike allowing Beatty to help him Montag choose a completely different route that most humans would not even think of doing. All of these actions occurred because Montag was an owner of over twenty books. Books in our society (Fahrenheit 451) are illegal to own because they corrupt ones mind with fake and damaging knowledge. Montag was found with over twenty books in his house which means that he does no think like a normal person.
“The Vikings are deserving of their bad reputation”. To what extent is this statement accurate? The statement “The Vikings are deserving of their bad reputation” is a deeply inaccurate statement as the Viking’s alleged reputation was thrust upon them by their enemies, Christian, who found the need to slander them to suppress the threat posed by these heathen Northmen to the influence of Christendom. The Vikings, in their golden age of the 9th-11th centuries, had a malicious reputation of being primitive, bloodthirsty, pirates of the dark ages who wreaked havoc wherever their ships took them.
Immigrants were confronted with just as much adversity as minorities and critics; like African Americans during the Great Migration (Document B), foreigners left what they knew best behind for better conditions. Refugees were also the victims of the Klu Klux Klan because they were not full-blooded Americans. The restrictions on the first amendment applied to the general populous (Document G), including aliens. They often took the blame for communist activity during the Palmer Raids, just as the union leaders of the country did. Clearly, immigrants did not flu under the radar during and just after the
Moonlight shone upon a restless and frost covered clearing. Insects were buzzing and chirping as a bone-numbing breeze stirred the tall grass, spooking the small creatures within. These cold gusts of wind fell from the nearby Atlan Mountains, their large and domineering forms cast enormous shadows down upon the surrounding land; obscuring threats and causing illusions to meander to and fro. Large ancient oak trees acted as astute wardens, as they surrounded the field, giving one a sense of safety and obscurity as it provided a pleasant spot of respite for any traveler to rest peacefully.
Some societal responses were that the English citizens or Saxons did not like William as a ruler and attempted to initiate rebellions, but they failed. Since William came into rule after the Battle of Hastings, he had to show authority he made the lenient Saxon laws strict so Saxon citizens could not go against his word. Also, William introduced the feudal system forcing Saxons to work on their own land with no say, causing a lack of societal response to William’s rule and the Battle of Hastings. The only cultural response to the Battle of Hastings was that William wiped out all the Saxon culture and implemented Norman culture due to the Normans being in charge. The tapestry reflects the societal and cultural response discussed by showing William and the horses on the tapestry to suggest power and
People saw the death from the plague as a paranormal incidence as divine punishment for the people’s sins. People tried every type of remedy, popular cure and prayer, but nothing had any effect on the fast-moving disease. This led to cities burnt down by the townspeople to drive away the rats, but that caused the plague to spread faster (Backman 350). When nothing seemed to work everyone turned on the Catholic Church. Most believed that the church failed them and were not able to save them from this punishment.
Viking Gods 1. The Vikings were from Scandinavia and they believed in many Gods. The two main families of the Norse Gods were the Aesir Family - sky Gods, and the Vanir Family - earth Gods. The families were at war for a while until they eventually they made peace. 2.
