In addition, World War II introduced change through industrialisation, which was key to Russia’s success in the war. These key reforming leaders and other factors of change saw Russia grow from a very deprived country in 1856 to an industrial superpower in 1964. Alexander II became known as ‘Alexander the Great Reformer’ and ‘the Tsar Liberator’ which suggests that his work and reforms changed the nature of Russian government and society to a large extent. The emancipation of the Serfs in 1861 initially appeared to have major benefits for the serfs. As Alexander II said: “We vowed in our hearts to fulfil the mission which is entrusted to Us and to surround with Our affection and Our Imperial solicitude all Our faithful subjects of every rank and condition”2.
By 1536 the Royal Supremacy in church and state was established and widely accepted, allowing Henry to exert his power more thoroughly, and ultimately creating a revolutions the king could take full control of the kingdom. Although Cranmer took the lead in theological debates, it was in fact Cromwell who shaped the new church. In 1536 Cromwell was appointed Vicegerent in Spiritual, and along with introducing his Protestant ideas, which further undermined the respect for the papacy and helped to justify the break with Rome. Cromwell’s careful follow-on of events, such as the valor ecclesiasticus and, ultimately, the break with Rome,was vital in the construction of Henry as the centre of both Church and Country, ultimately showing that Cromwell was more than significant in creating a revolution in the way of Tudor government. Administrative changes also played a role in the creation of the new government, and Cromwell was the man behind many of these, seeking to reform and
The people conquered by charlemegne , after being converted to christianty, were taught through the bible of codes that taught right and wrong. It was nesscary for the church to play a role in this education of the people, because only the clergy were educated. The church also guided charlemagene’s hand as a ruler, for he took on many conquests and missions so this way the Christian relgion could spread throught Europe. Indeed, his desire and passionate to spread his kingdom and government was interwined with his desire to spread the Christian relgion and have the people live according to the word of god. At that beginning of the caroligian dynasty the church was suffering from problems.
How far did the introduction of Western Style reforms and the use of foreigners assist Peter the Great in strengthening his absolute rule? Peter the Great was influenced by the instability in Russia he had witnessed in Childhood, and was determined to expunge the subversive element of his population which could precipitate a resurgence of this anti-authoritarian violence. Further aims included the unification of Russia, extension of territory and its defence against the Poles, Tatars and Swedes. This required securing his absolutism, as internal security is a prerequisite of an effective foreign policy. Although foreigners and western-style changes did not cover the entire scope of his developments, they certainly appear to have been a fundamental
This motto was given to them by the Roman Catholic Church. The Templars fought the Crusades not only because they were true knights who followed the old Code of Conduct, but because they also wanted to earn a place in heaven (Nicolle 37). The Templars helped start what we know as the alliance system. They were a part of
Their missionary work included providing for the poor and tending to their needs and spreading the word of the church. Effects of the church: Positive: The church provided laws that led people to do the right thing, and their laws made sure that rulers had consequences to their actions too. It was just the poor getting the punishment. The church provided the knowledge of religion and they had people spread it around the world so that people could be exposed to religion and what it has to offer. It was spread though missionary work.
His influence over the king on this matter could then be shown to have an effect where in the early 1530’s Henry went on to charge all the Clergy with preamunire, and threatened a few with death. This supplication was drafted by Cromwell as early as 1529, showing his devotion to the topic, and tendency towards hard work; a fact that is corroborated by Loades in source 8, where he describes Cromwell as having “a phenomenal capacity for hard work”. This ability to completely devout oneself could be what allowed Cromwell to have such an influence over the reformation. This supplication was used to bring about the submission of the clergy, an act that was passed in 1534, to royal authority and
However it also important to note the fact that change also had a part to play in the way Russia was governed in this period. The first style of leading which the tsars and Bolsheviks had in common is the fact each of the Tsars and Bolshevik leaders regarded themselves as being God-like. This is shown to be clear in Tsar Nicholas 2nd; he believed he was Gods anointed and the church supported him in making the Russian peasants in particular believe this was true. Peasants would have paintings of the Tsar in their homes and even soldiers would have portraits of Nicholas in the war. Likewise Stalin saw himself as a God-like man in the way he was able to have total control over Russian people.
In his view, the Church's first and foremost goal isn't the individual experience, but rather the ability for humans to create the Kingdom of God on earth. For Raushenbusch this could be done through what he called the “social gospel.” “Since the Kingdom is the supreme end of God, it must be the purpose for which the church exists.” By living each day in love, humans should theoretically be able to live like Jesus Christ and in turn reform society. This focus was influenced by many factors. One prevalent factor, which led to this sense of urgency toward social reform, was the migration of the population. In Emerson's time, the majority of American citizens lived in rural areas.
This was mostly for three reasons. First being the need to protect his realm from outside forces and people on the inside that wanted to overtake him. Secondly, a desire to have more land and wealth. Last, he wanted to spread Christianity as far as he could. His performance on the battlefield earned him noteriety as a warrior king in the Frankish history, one who would make the Franks a force in the world once contained in the Roman Empire.
