Unfortunately, this is a grossly flawed argument because it is by no means certain that Halloween originates from an ancient Druid festival of the dead. The connections often made rest upon shoddy scholarship and therefore there are many myths about the origin of Halloween (For an excellent online, Christian analysis of this alleged Druidic origin of Halloween the reader is encouraged to check out Halloween: Myths, Monsters and Devils by W.J. Bethancourt III by clicking here. He also has assembled a bibliography second to none which you can get to by going to here). Myth #1 — "Halloween was originally a Celtic festival for the dead, celebrated on the last day of the Celtic year, Oct.
Catholics were not allowed to vote or sit in Parliament until 1829. NO MORE CATHOLICS! • The majority of people living in England at the time were Protestants and not Catholics. • The Catholics were blamed for causing the Great fire of London in 1666 (it wasn’t true). • From 1678 to 1681 the idea of another Catholic plot called ‘The Popish Plot’ which was at the time entirely fictional , was to kill Charles II the protestant King in order to bring back King James II, a Catholic to the throne.
During this period all forms of public order were suspended, the law courts and schools were closed, trading ceased and no criminals were executed. The medieval church throughout Europe adopted this festival, transferring to the days immediately following Christmas day, it was known as the ‘feast of fools’, the clergy in the cathedral towns would elect a boy chorister to be their ‘king’ for the day, while they feasted and made mockery of those things that they normally held sacred. In England this celebration ceased with the reformation in the sixteenth century and its place was taken-so far as Queen Elizabeth and her court were concerned- by the ‘Twelfth Night’ festivities on 6th January. An Elizabethan entertainment The regular programme of events began in the morning when the Queen, accompanied by the entire court and her guests, attended chapel and she made a token offering of her Epiphany gifts. The religious ritual was followed by a sumptuous banquet.
The ban on religious plays dealt a painful blow to French theatre, but its prohibition allowed secular theatre to develop” (Joyeuse). However the movement did not come into full swing until 1598, under the reign of Henri IV, with the enactment of the Edict of Nantes. This guaranteed religious freedom and thus ended the war and the ban on religious theatre (Joyeuse). Although they were no longer laws, restricting the theatre, there was still a list of rules that were imperative to all neoclassical plays. The most important being a strict following of the Aristotelian unities: time, place, and action (Quick); the unity of time restricted all action in a play to one 24 hour period, that is to say there were no lapses and everything happened in real time; The unity of place required that all the action happened in the same location; and the unity of action “required one central story, involving a relatively small group of characters, no sub-plots” (Joyeuse).It was also required that Neo-classical plays be verisimilar or probable.

Write a very short narrative which describes the end of the Russian Monarchy. The 17th July 1918 was to be the final chapter of the Russian Monarchy; however the demise of the Monarchy cannot simply be attributed to one factor. Many believed killing the Royal family was unnecessary, even from a Bolshevist perspective, thinking they could have merely been allowed to flee and seek political asylum in Britain as Nicholas II was Victoria’s brother-in-law. One extremely important factor of the demise came when Tsar Nicholas II signed an act of abdication on March 2nd 1917, resulting in the 300 year old dynasty of the Romanovs effectively coming to an end. Less than two weeks earlier, the prospect of such a dramatic outcome had seemed remote and unlikely.
