English 4 7 October 2013 Aida said “Of all the medieval epics, it reflects Christian ethics and values most strongly even though it never explicitly mentions anything Christian” (Beowulf as Didactic???? Help!!!?). Although the Christian values ethics and beliefs are never mentioned in the poem of Beowulf specifically, they are still very strong. This can be shown in many ways to show the underlying integration of Christian and pagan beliefs and morals. There are three major parts of the poem that show the integration; the death for the sins of others, the honor of his uncle’s agreement, and how he has 12 followers at the end these show the integration of Christian and pagan beliefs with the intent that the listeners pick up on them.
Conscripted peasants had begun to lose interest, and their welfare was harmed with the conscription of animals, meaning beasts of burden and the like were deposed to military use.

He, despite the warnings of his advisors, joined the front ranks. Nicholas believed he was doing the right thing, rather than realizing the incompetence of his own aggressive nationalism. This led to Russia being in the control of the German Alexandria, who was hated by the Russian people because of her inability to speak Russian, her reliance on Grigory Rasputin, a mystic who claimed to heal her son, her antisocial, depressed attitude and a general political incompetence to rival Nicholas’s.
But all along has been another God.” This “another God” was the good God that was separate from the creator God. This was the father of Jesus Christ who had nothing to do with law, wrath, or judgment, but was instead only a God of grace, love, and acceptance. This dualistic view is taught and believed in many Gnostic cults, including many modern “secret societies” such as the Freemasons. Excommunicated from the church and disenchanted from his father, Marcion needed to escape from Sinop. He traveled throughout Asia Minor desperately seeking recognition for his Paulinist theology.
There is and have always been much discussion of the authenticity of the Bible and the many questionable occurrences. There is also a possibility that something is missing. Therefore the mystery of religion continues, but most Christians would agree with the Nicene creed: “We believe in one God, The Father almighty, maker of all things, visible and invisible; and in one Lord Jesus Christ, the son of God, the only begotten of his father, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of very God, begotten not made, being of one substance with the Father” (The Nicene
Leviticus 19. 28: Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, not print any marks upon you: I am the Lord. On the other side of the coin, there are countless instances in the bible where tattoos are accepted; Christians seem just to ignore that fact.

This shows that he is highly unpopular with lawyers as he believes if they do not do their job properly they should be fined however lawyers are the only category which state that he is un-liked compared to the ‘whole people’. Sources 1 and 2 both agree that he had a lot of power over the nobility and they were not fond of that. Source 1 state’s ‘his hostility towards...nobles’ this shows that Wolsey was aggressive towards the nobles which created ‘great irritation’. Wolsey saw himself above the nobility so he did not give them any respect and believed they could not do their job properly. Source 2 agrees that he had a lot of power of the nobility as he ‘shakes them by the ear’ this quote show that Skelton was taking the mick out of the nobility for not standing up to Wolsey which shows the amount of power he had over them but also that the nobles did actually fear Wolsey.
Both were treated unfairly and weren’t liked by people. They both were used in some sort of experiment. Firstly, who ever you are and whatever you lack shouldn’t hold you back from having friends. Both Charlie Gordon and the monster had difficulties appealing to people and this was very disturbing to them. For example, the monster was hated by all and he knew that he could never have someone that looked normal because of the way he was.
One of the main themes in the novel ‘’The Outsiders’’ is stereotypes. The two gangs, the Socs and the Greasers are stereotyped by each other and others. The Greasers are perceived to be poor, unclean, uneducated and troublesome. Although this may be the case for some, this description is not true for all of the Greasers. A good example of a Greaser who is none of these things is Darry, the eldest of the Curtis family.
It is a technological dominance on a higher level. There is no individuality in the Brave New World, but an illusion individuality that is instilled with the unreal world. Yet, in the both worlds the struggle of the individual against technology is evident. In Brave New World, John was 'abducted' from a world of individuality into the perfect world of Bernard's and Lenina's collectivity. John looks at both worlds through the lenses of the religion he got from the Reservation-a mixture of Christianity and American Indian beliefs - and the old-fashioned morality he learned from reading Shakespeare.
“I was released from the illusion that I hated America.” Through his experiences, he has found a new basis for his life in America. He learnt that his hatred for America was from his lack of knowledge of self worth, which he found in Europe. The most important thing that he gained was the knowledge that his own development was and will always be in his own hands. Most statesmen will unlikely have the time to adventure into Europe and truly understand the old world policies that they are laying down as the law of the land. Without experiencing the full effect of both societies, a statesman is greatly at a disadvantage.
