He is also buried on the Via Flaminia, but in a different location than Valentine of Rome. His relics are at the Basilica of Saint Valentine in Terni (Basilica di San Valentino).  The Catholic Encyclopedia also speaks of a third saint named Valentine who was mentioned in early martyrologies under date of February 14. He was martyred in Africa with a number of companions, but nothing more is known about him.  No romantic elements are present in the original early medieval biographies of either of these martyrs.
Church of the Seven Councils Eastern Orthodox Christianity is a very ancient and traditional religion; these Christians claim they worship and practice their rituals the same way the early Church did and nothing has changed since. That previous statement captures the nature of Eastern Orthodox, but it is not entirely true. Christianity as a whole took time to develop and slowly take shape. Contrary to popular belief, Jesus did not personally hand his disciples the King James Bible with proper doctrine intact. It took several centuries for Christians to establish orthodox or correct doctrine and to determine which doctrines were heretical.
However by 1918, all of this had changed. Sinn Féin replaced the Home Rule party as the dominant force in Irish politics. In this essay I shall outline how and why this great change came about. The Home Rule party lost credibility, the public felt that it had been deceived. John Redmond, leader of the HR party had been the one to urge the Irish to support the War effort, claiming that it would ensure Home Rule for Ireland and had assured them that the war would be “over by christmas” but four years after this guarantee the war was still not over and Home Rule was but a distant memory.
Gladstone's Irish Measures The answer to the question, `What did Gladstone do in Ireland? ', can be readily summed up under three headings. His mission to Ireland involved attempts to address Irish grievances in relation to religion, land, and home rule. Religion Gladstone disestablished and partially disendowed the Church of Ireland, the Protestant established Church in Ireland since Henry VIII introduced the Reformation there. The disestablishment and partial disendowment occurred in 1869, during Gladstone's first spell as Prime Minister, 1868-1874.
Generally speaking they avoid celebrations that are not well-founded in the Bible. The most notable being the Christmas celebration. According to popular tradition, Christmas is believed to be the birth date of Christ, and many of the traditions associated with this popular custom are purportedly taken from events surrounding the birth of Christ as recorded in the Bible. However, upon closer examination, many of these traditions are related to so-called “pagan” beliefs. For example, the exact date for the birth of Christ is not given in the Bible.
The influence of Christianity on Native Americans Given the lack of written history for hundreds of years by Native Americans, it leads to wonder how much of the current information and how many of the current religious practice have been given a different spin by Christian missionaries and those reporting about Native Americans. Many Native Americans have converted to Christianity historically through missionaries and more currently by blending with the mainstream. It appears those practicing time honored traditions struggle to do so. I find it nothing short of miraculous that so many of the traditions remain intact. Since the religious practices and histories of these tribes have been passed on orally and by demonstration, the invasion of Christians into Native American lands or at least the interpretation of these practices seem to align.
However, before achieving such great success, Augustine was not even a believer in Christ. After years of searching and studying, Augustine chose to convert. Several factors led up to Saint Augustine’s conversion. These were discussed in his Confessions, a 13 book biographical work written by Augustine. Confessions was written between 397 and 398 and provided information on his sinful youth and conversion to Christianity.
In this paper, I will discuss Martin Luther’s background for writing the Ninety-five Theses, his stance on indulgences, and some results that happened because of the Theses. Martin was least likely expected to have a profound effect in the Christian social order. Martin Luther was born in Eisleben in Saxony, in the year of 1483 and attended the University of Erfurt where he graduated with a master’s degree at the age of twenty-one (Erikson, 39). Martin’s father wanted him to study law, but after an incident in a thunderstorm, he decided to become a friar. Luther joined the monastery of the Augustinian Friars at Erfurt in 1505 and became a priest in 1507 (Erikson, 167).
There are many reasons for why the Roman Empire has fallen. One of the reasons is due to a new religion that had come about in the Roman Empire; Christianity. The beliefs of Christianity were so different from the Roman beliefs and values that people were being persecuted until Roman Emperor Constantine put a stop to it, and eventually legalized the religion in his empire. It caused many problems due to the drastic differences between Rome’s original religion, Paganism, which believed in many gods, and Christianity, which believed in only one god. Most Romans had considered their emperor to be a god, but the Romans who had converted to Christianity only believed in their own one god, and no longer respected, or even listened to their emperor.
