Although Jesus could have confessed to the false testimonies against him, he choice not to lie and died for his followers sins. Many gathered to watch the crucifixion of Jesus. On the contrary, while Proctor fell victim to it, Jesus overcame the temptations of evil.
Joan of Arc was a simple peasant girl the youngest of five children born into a family of pious parents whom worshipped God in a in a village near the province of Lorraine, in a far off village known as Domremy. Joan having been born a peasant and in a village, not in a city had very little education and with there were being two different factions of the French people following the two different kings, Kings Charles VII and King Henry V. Even with Joan’s little education, she believed that King Charles VII should be king because she had been given messages from the visions received from the saints of Margeret, Catherine and Michael that Charles was the one true king chosen by God.
John Winthrop was a Puritan who had every advantage in life. He was born into a wealthy family that was able to provide him with everything needed to succeed. His family was a part of the gentry class, which was the dominant force in English society during his time. He attended Trinity College at the age of 14 where he studied law. His faith was always apparent in his actions. He was extremely ardent in his religious studies. He possessed an elitist outlook about himself, and this outlook led him to believe that he was elected for salvation. His main goal was to “reform the national church from within” (165). However, when Charles I, a king who was sympathetic to Roman Catholicism, ascended to the throne, he knew that he could never openly

My name is Olaudah Equiano. I was born in the Eboe of Africa. While I was just a young child, my sister and I were taken by kidnappers and they sold us to these slave traders. This was the worst and terrifying day of my life. I was sent to the West Indies or the island of Barbados. The ship I was on was horrific, put together with no care of sex or gender. There were many people who had died due to the harsh inhumane condition we was in. Lucky I was the one of few who survived. I finally arrived and went into a merchant yard where we were bear skin and men of wealth came in where they examined our mouths and other body parts.
With the fall of the Carolingian Empire, Europe was left in a frantic and militaristic state marked by violence amongst fluctuating kingdoms and territorial leaders. In the early 12th century, however, France was beginning to experience a positive change in the monarchy when Louis the VI became king in 1108. Also known as Louis the Fat (due to his massive weight towards the end of his life), Louis was able to assert his force as king by giving just, and often violent, punishments to criminals and enemies. Once a confidant to the king and eventually the abbot of St. Denis, Suger writes about Louis’ various acts in The Deeds of Louis the Fat. These deeds helped to shape France’s monarchy into a powerful, centralized unit that would continue for
In almost every Count that has ever been reigned in the middle ages, there is no leader like Count Charles, who takes a risky approach to governing a land with the idea of religion as an important aspect of his position. Count Charles, aka “Blessed Charles the Good” is well known for feeding the poor, promoting peace and security, but religion is definitely a big influence to his reign as the Count of Flanders. At first, before doing any research on Count Charles’ religious ruling, I would already believe that Charles is a spiritual nobleman that everyone would admire because of how devastated Flanders felt when they heard about his death in 1127. Fortunately, my thoughts on Count Charles
Alan Forey wrote and intriguing journal article that questions the authentication of a letter supposedly written by St. Bernard in which he mentions Pedro Henriques the purported brother of King Alfonso. Because of mentioning of Pedro, Forey establishes the theory, that St. Bernard did not author the letter. Forey questions if St. Bernard provided any prior knowledge to King Afonso of Portugal regarding the crusaders siege of Lisbon in 1147. Forey states, the letter known simply as letter 308 is cryptic at best and does not provide any specific details of an invasion by crusaders or of the original author’s intent for writing the letter. Stating, letter 308 first appeared in Brito’s Chronica de Cister in 1602, in which Forey claims that articles printed in that particular chronical are often not genuine. Forey question the existence of Pedro Henriques, the supposed brother of the King. Forey is unable to substantiate the existence of Pedro the brother who is the dominate person mentioned in letter 308. According to the letter, Pedro will arrive in Lisbon with the northern fleet and rid the peninsula of Muslim invaders. In order to support his case against the authenticity of the letter, Forey eludes to another confusing aspect and that is whether King Alfonso had an illegitimate son named Pedro. Citing evidence that Alfonso and Queen Taresa had a daughter also named Taresa. However, Forey concludes that information presented in numerous chronicles of the
Joan of arc and Martin Luther King Jr. were both larger than life personas that fought for a purpose that was bigger than either of them. Both were persecuted for their fight against injustices and breaking the “rules” of society. However, Joan of arc was for practice of heresy and Martin Luther King Jr. was a preacher who spoke out against common societal ideas.
The evolution of music can be viewed as a linear timeline of key, innovative composers who have far-reaching influences upon the musical continuum and perhaps epitomises the societal views which are relevant to their time period through their canonical pieces. As a result, in order to conduct a case study into any piece of music one must first realise said piece in regards to the concurrent political climate.

It began with the invasion of Normandy in 1415 by Henry V of England and continued until the Battle of Castillon in 1453. At this point the English had reached the height of success in the war but small French counterattacks were starting to help the French take back English controlled territories. The Siege of Orleans was an important battle in 1429 as it was a significant victory for the French. Led by Joan of Arc, the French created a distraction on the western front of Orleans and made an entrance through the eastern side unprotected. Once in Orleans the French attacked and caused the English to retreat. Joan of Arc was later captured during a battle in 1430, sold to the English, and in 1431 burned at the stake. The Battle of Castillon was the last major battle in the Hundred Years which resulted in a French victory and sealed the French victory for the Hundred Year’s War. Although this is considered the last battle, the English and French formally remained at war for another twenty years after this. The English had much unrest and turmoil on their home land so much that they were in no position to carry on in the war. The English had lost all land territories gained in France except Calais, which they eventually lost years
