The question presented asks for an explanation as to why European rulers promoted exploration and colonization in North America. Keywords: Exploration and Colonization in North America Power is a great motivating factor for rulers to seek new land and increase trade and wealth for their country. This became a situation where greed and envy ruled the leaders in charge of sending military and sea forces into unknown territories Berkin, Miller, Cherny, Gormly & Egerton, 2010). The two reasons of note behind the motivation of Europeans exploring to North America are religious freedom and economic opportunity. It is true the three G’s of attraction to Europe was Gold, Glory, and God and remains to still be a strong force behind the world today.
He won over the support of the Catholic Church as Mussolini’s fascist squads were destroying socialism, he also offered to aid the church financially, and he introduced policies specifically to gain church support. Mussolini won the support of The Confindustria and the landowners because his fascist squads were destroying socialism, Mussolini’s new economic policies suited them, and he allowed them to water down fascist syndicalism. The Army supported Mussolini because the fascist squads were destroying socialism, the army was unwilling to suppress the fascists by force, and Mussolini subordinated the militia to the Army. This meant that Mussolini reduced his opposition and increased his allies; here his political skill meant he would face less resistance whilst enforcing his regime. However, despite Mussolini’s political skill, his opposition groups were badly divided.
Scholasticism synthesized Christian beliefs and values and the Greek philosophy of Aristotle. Sacraments, devotion to saints, and relics made Christianity more popular amongst the laity. Dominicans and Franciscans lived as beggars and gave up all material belongings to oppose the materialistic church. The Cathars and Waldesians preferred to commit heresy and leave the church altogether. Religious philosophies changed in medieval Europe due to the growing materialistic greed of the church and growing interaction with lands around Europe.
Reputable artists, like Michelangelo, were sufficiently trusted and admired to allow more freedom of expression. Michelangelo was commissioned by Pope Julius II to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City in 1508. These frescoes reflect Christian beliefs because they are situated in the Vatican City, the heart of Catholicism, and were commissioned by the Pope, the head of the Roman church. In addition, Michelangelo himself was a devout Christian however he was also a devotee of Plato (an ancient Greek philosopher) and in the Sistine Chapel we see a merging of both classical and Christian values. For Michelangelo these apparently contrasting values were not in conflict and he was given the freedom by Julius
These two kings got to do whatever they wanted since they were ruling with Divine Right. They used this belief to increase their power within their kingdom and influence their power outside the kingdom. France was a catholic country and both rulers were catholic but the way that both used their religion was very different. When Louis XIII was king of France he had an advisor named Cardinal Richelieu who helped him rule France, he showed Louis XIII an opportunity to shift the balance of power in Europe but it contrasted with their religion. Even though France was catholic Cardinal Richelieu saw a chance to take down Spain and the Hapsburgs by fighting for the Protestants.
Wealthy citizens commissioned specific art for both secular and religious projects. Though medieval tradition of religious subjects and stories from the bible continued this was combined with ideals of human figures and nature. This paper will describe, analyze, and interpret The Usurers by Marinus Van Reymerswaele. The Usurers,
I was fortuitous to have witnessed some of the most prolific art of our time spanning from Northern Europe to Italy. I have seen the Baroque art in Rome. Iâ€™ve seen the â€œbreathing wallsâ€ of Francisco Borromiâ€™s Dome of San Carlo alle Quattro; Iâ€™ve lived through the flood of Berniniâ€™s Inundation of the Tiber; I have seen heaven above in Fra Andrea Pozzoâ€™s Triumph of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Every piece of work radiates with religious approbation- striking emotion and feelings in those whoâ€™ve lost faith in the Catholic Church. However, Northern Europeâ€™s Baroque styles not only embrace religious subjects but also the material reality and everyday activities of the middle-class.
IWT1 Task One Tonya Myers Western Governors University IWT1 Task One The Middle Ages and the Renaissance periods have many similarities as well as differences socially and artistically.

Firstly, he worked hard to bring peace to France by ending the torrid French Wars of Religion. By doing this he restored royal power. The people of Paris opposed Henry because of his Huguetonism beliefs, so in 1593 Henry demonstrated his intelligence by converting to Catholicism. In 1598, he declared the Edict of Nantes, which gave circumscribed toleration to the Huguenots. Secondly, Henry helped the economy of France to grow, thus leaving his heirs with a large wealth that could be used (for example by Louis XIV) to bring greatness or power to France.
One of the most important issues in the church was education and financial security. Hitler understood that the Church was willing to sacrifice and was able to take advantage, as Paul explains “Hitler sought to eliminate Catholic opposition in favor of obligatory loyalty to his regime. For its part, the church was obsessed with its educational privileges, and especially with securing fresh sources of income. It would willingly sacrifice political power to protect them. As both sides worked in haste to produce a treaty that would normally have required years to complete, Hitler took masterful advantage of Vatican over eagerness.”(Paul, 11) This excerpt shows how desperate the Catholic Church was to retain its core values, even if it meant losing its political
