There were many reasons and causes leading up to the civil war, and can usually be divided into two categories: long term reasons and short term reasons. Some long term reasons include money and religion, whilst examples of short term reasons are Charles bursting into Parliament and demanding the arrest of 5 MPs, as well as other things like the Irish Rebellion. These all split Parliament and the King apart, and soon the country was forced to decide whose side they were on. This could only mean one outcome: war. One of the long term reasons is religion.
How important was opposition to religious reforms in the years after 1633 in bringing an end to the Personal Rule of Charles I The opposition to religious reforms was absolutely integral to bringing the end the personal rule. The manner of Charles religious reforms showed, as revisionist Barry Coward has stated, “underlying discontent” which was to culminate in the collapse of Charles’ authority and bring an end to the personal rule. I do believe, however, that opposition to contextual factors, such as finance, link in with religion and why the foundations for explaining why opposition to religious reforms brought Charles personal rule to an end. It is safe to say that Charles’ religious reforms brought much opposition that was to be extremely detrimental to his authority. In England, Charles’s imposition of such means the “placing of altars”, mentioned in Source B, and the prominence of catholics at court also mentioned in B, created underlying discontent.
56). He says that the Bush Administration strayed off the path and took a negative and forceful approach to other governments. And it is his beliefs that this is how China is gaining strength, and how the United States is slowly starting to fall from the top of the food chain. John Mearsheimer on the other hand is what you would call a realist. He aligns more with the thought of the political scientist named Thomas Hobbes who had his theory of the state of nature where everyone defends themselves in a state of war.
How does Stoker use the symbols of religion and superstition in Dracula? The Victorian era witnessed one of the greatest shifts in religious attitudes since the Puritan movement. At the beginning of the era the Church was incredibly powerful, but as the era progressed, people moved away from religion started to question their faith. Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species, in 1859, and along with the advances in technology, such as the first underground railway being built, in 1863, brought about the “crisis of faith”. The two biggest and most conflicting religions in this period were two sects of Christianity, Protestantism and Catholicism.
What role did the New Model Army play in directing the political position of the Parliamentarians during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms (1642-60)? Discuss with reference to any two documents in Chapter 3 of the Anthology. The English Civil War, in one way or another, was a response to the aftermath of the Reformation which left behind political unrest and separate religious groups with indifferences and nonconformity. The Civil War affected everyone from commoners and the up and coming rising middle classes to the ruling aristocracy and Parliament. Parliament would eventually go on to create the New Model Army in response to events that surrounded Charles I, personal rule and his marriage to a catholic Queen Henrietta Maria, the daughter of Henry IV of France.
The last years of Henrys reign was dominated by conservative and reformist factions . In this essay I will assess the extent of the threat created due to the rivalry of factions that had affected the stability of the government. The execution of Cromwell (1940) was a success for conservatives as was also Henrys marriage to Catharine Haword. The marriage was a gateway to influencing Henry by carving out a new royal policy via Catharine H. This increased tension between the Reformists and conservatives and so the reformists took action to destroy the reputations of Cahrine H , Duke of Norfolk and Gardiner. On the contrary this shows that the disputes between these factions may imply that the King was weak and not in control thus significantly threatening the stability of government .
Between 1547 and 1558 England was almost torn apart by religious revolution. Assess the validity of this claim. (45 marks) A religious revolution is the complete change and reform of religious organisation. This is something that arguably occurred in England between 1547 and 1558, during which time there were two monarchs – Edward VI and Mary I, with opposing religious beliefs. During Tudor England, religious identity was extremely important, and therefore religious ‘revolution’ was obviously going to affect the people and the country significantly.
To determine the main reason for the declaration of war, both English and Chinese secondary sources will be mainly used, also primary sources about the British parliamentary debate. In section C, “British Trade and the Opening of China 1800-1842” by Michael Greenberg will be evaluated according to its origin, purpose, value and limitation since it reveals and analyzes trade between China and Britain which is useful for my investigation. “The Opium Wars: The Addiction of One Empire and the Corruption of another” will also be evaluated since it reveals and analyzes the diplomacy between China and Britain. Section B – Summary of Evidence Qing Government’s economic policies and trade with Britian In 1757, Emperor Qianlong implemented the Canton system, under which all foreign ships were only allowed to anchor in Guangdong.

Suggested Essay Plan • Land and religious issues triggered action in Scotland in 1639. There had been a long building of antagonism. From 1625 onwards, Scots landowners were incensed by the attempts of the English government to use the Act of Revocation to renegotiate the terms of leases on secularised Church lands. Calvinist nobles, already seething at the 1618 ‘Black Articles of Perth’ (which reintroduced the office of Bishop into Scotland), joined a rapidly growing reaction to the 1637 edict to use the Church of England prayerbook. Riots spread.
It was the undermining of her by the Bishops across England whose allegiance is still to the Pope rather than to a Protestant English Monarch. Elizabeth, and Walsingham, realise that she must act swiftly to reduce the influence of the Bishops or meet the fate that Norfolk eagerly anticipates at the very beginning of the sequence. The action she decides upon is to persuade Parliament to pass an Act of Uniformity whereby the clergy will agree to the use of one common prayer-book and to her position as Supreme Governor of the Church in England. The Sequence Opens with a static shot from behind Norfolk as he stands in front of a mirror (vanity?) dressing for the day in Parliament.
