However, King Louis is the best king we have and most likely will see in a long time! Unlike other kings who just want power and money, King Louis truly tries his hardest to do what's best for all his people. He has improved our government in multiple ways. Two of my favorite things are sending higher officials to check on the local officials and how he outlawed private wars. King Louis IX is an extraordinary King and I am positive he will a huge impact on
"...Constantine made Christianity the state religion: stating there was 'No distinction between realm of Caesar and the realm of God. ' Under Constantine, pagan temples were confiscated, their treasuries were used to build churches and support clergy, and laws were adjusted for Christian ethics."(Ponticelli,J. "_The_Split_Of_The_Empire" Class Reading, Oct. 6,2015). Due to Rome, Christianity was able to grow and expand into the religion it is today. About 32 percent of people in the world follow
They could not handle what Arnold had done; they did not understand who would betray his/her own country for money and wealth (Sheinkin). The second stage of reactions was the amazement that a plot such as Arnold’s could have worked so easily; some called it luck and others saw it as a hand of God (Sheinkin). Arnold had ironically helped save the American Revolution one last time. Arnold was safe with the British, but even they asked themselves how a man could betray his country for money. Arnold wanted everything done for him.
He was the most sought-after knight in the Arthurian age; numerous people called for his aid, as he was renowned for his incredible skill and valor. He competed in everything from tournaments to simple conflicts. He was always expected to emerge as the victor or make the right decisions for a quarrel or feud. Even if he did not want to help, Lancelot was required to complete the tasks asked of him because of his honor and duty as a knight. Furthermore, Lancelot was considered the best knight but was not the best person.
Julius Caesar to some he was a great man to others “he doth bestride the narrow world. Like a colossal.” It was this conflict that brought upon Caesar’s death and Rome’s civil war. While the plebeians loved Caesar many noblemen such as Cassius did not. When they killed him they didn’t realize how much it would affect Rome. Caesar affected the war too.
it is believed that Constantine had a vision of winning the battle with the symbol of Christianity, the “Chi Rho”, painted on the shields of his army: Figure 2 the first two letters in the Greek word for "Christ" superimposed on top of each other. Whether Constantine’s army won because of a little divine intervention, or because his army was better, the outcome of that battle boosted Christianity in Rome. Constantine
In nearly every era, expectations have been widely expressed and acknowledged. Whether or not people chose to adhere to different standards was their choice, most likely depending on how attainable the ideals were. In the middle ages, women did not appear to be particularly important and their standards probably had more to do with being a good wife. However, ideals for men, specifically knights, were set in stone: knights were to be fierce and ruthless on the battlefield, yet gentle and nurturing in their everyday lives. In theory, chivalry sounds like a genius solution to create the perfect man, but in reality, expectations were set too high.
This passage reveals the underlying causes of Grant’s anxiety about teaching Jefferson his final lesson. His own education has been based on mastering the cultural vocabulary of white America, and although he is respected in the quarter for his high level of academic achievement, Grant knows that he is only helping to perpetuate this system. Although he wants to help his students avoid the pitfalls of being black and poor in the deep South, he feels ill-equipped to do this despite his academic pedigree. This is one of Jefferson’s first pieces of dialogue that does not relate to him being a hog. Although it is some time before Grant recognizes that Jefferson is making progress, Jefferson’s recognition of a role model is significant.
There is a very common question asked by many historians, who was a better ruler, Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin or Vladimir Lenin? Although not an easy answer, I personally believe that Lenin was a better ruler than Stalin. For starters and perhaps the most obvious of reasons, Lenin did not kill as much innocent people as Stalin despite the frequent arguments he would have with his party members. He was also able to restore the country after the Great War or World War One. After the war had finished, he educated his citizens and then sent them out to different countries so they could prosper elsewhere.
Confederate president Jefferson Davis’s previous career as secretary of war qualified him for running the Confederacy, but some of his characteristics hindered his leadership ability. He was extremely smart but interacted awkwardly with people. He often associated compromise with weakness and differing opinions as personal attacks. In contrast to Davis, Abraham Lincoln won the support of his people by “persevering the importance of the Union”. He also created support in his speeches where he used pathos to create an emotional connection to his people by referring to “the family man”.
