The next most important reason for the collapse was religion and Charles’ push toward Arminianism and absolutism. The fear of Charles becoming absolutist shaped how his policies were viewed and the MP’s political attitudes. Appello Ceasarum produced by Montagu and commissioned by the King angered many MPs as it argued the similarities between Protestantism and Catholicism. This brought MPs to call for the impeachment of Montagu as they felt it promoted anti-Calvinism. Charles’ reaction to this, as he imposed his prerogative as the Divine Right Monarch, promoted Montagu to Royal Chaplain.

Was John really a bad king? Through out history King John has been portrayed as a villainous king for example in the legends of Robin Hood he is shown as a greedy and cruel ruler who treated his people unfairly. However this may not be an accurate picture of him as for example he fed hundreds of paupers on feast days and he was hard working, often travelling the country and sitting in on court cases. Many of the problems he faced in running the country were in fact caused by Richard 1 who had neglected England. Sources from the time of John describe John as a poor leader and that he was greedy for money.
The great exchange enabled Western Europe to grow exponentially in size power and economics. Whereas the Americas suffered due to pathogenic diseases killing off most indigenous population. Also, African population decreased as the slave trade came into effect, killing many slaves in a coercive labor system. Discuss the connection between the state and the church in Latin America as it applies to ruling the Spanish empire? The Spainards legitimized their rule by enforcing the church and its values tO the inferior population by converting them in effort to cease and integrate them to Spanish life.
The concept of revenge is as old as time itself, in a famous line that has been borrowed from an 18th century novel, “revenge is a dish best served cold,” is magnanimously demonstrated in the short story “Saboteur.” Written by Ha Jin, a University professor disgruntled by the suppression of the Chinese people by the Communist government, the story tells the account of an unfortunate police encounter. The encounter leads to an epidemic where 800 people contract a horrible disease, 6 die, among the victims were 2 children (Jin 185). Unbeknownst to the police and the population of Muji, they themselves brought this horrible epidemic on themselves, by violating, torturing, and falsely incriminating a one Mr. Chiu. Their actions not only broke an educated mans resolve, but fueled a desire of revenge, colder than most winters. Throughout the story the gradual abuses break down Mr. Chiu and he eventually falls from grace.
In line four the author uses the word “vice” to describe that eating is a negative character trait, meaning he is making himself look bad because of his greediness. In the last two lines of the poem I get the perception that the author means that in his belly there is sin. I think that he describes the belly as sin because he was greedy and fed off of others and being greedy is a sin. The author also wanted more as described in line three of the poem. “Lust it comes out, that gluttony went in” (6) means that a desire comes out and a mouth full of food goes into the body.
During his time he teamed up with professional chefs at hotels and developed a superior reputation for haute cuisine. Haute cuisine is characterized by particular preparation and careful presentation of food, at a high expense level, accompanied by rare and exclusive wines. He also developed the first a la carte menu. A la carte menus specify the price of each item. He simplified the art of cooking by getting rid of food displays and elaborates garnishes by reducing the number of courses served.
It is this small amount of money the family depends on, which allows them to be happy and content in their lives, even if they “were not well dressed” and their “clothes were scanty”. Dickens proves a valuable lesson through the Cratchit family and Scrooge’s wealth. He is able to show that money can ensure that you survive, but is not the most important aspect in one’s life. It is the qualities of kindness, joy & being charitable that make life complete. Good rebuttal point Charles Dickens’ novella “A Christmas Carol” presents to readers how the most important things in life are priceless.
Ross Zimmermann History 10IB Mr. Kindrachuk May 23 2012 The Execution of Louis XVI: Analyzing Conflicting Sources 1. Briefly explain what the following phrases refer to: a) ‘…the tyrant…’ (Document A) The phrase “the tyrant” in Document A refers to King Louis XVI.

The Pope demanded for the theses to be taken down and burned but Luther rejected him and kept distributing them out to the public to spread the, wrong doing of the church in the name of money. Luther was excommunicated by the Church, which means he was automatically set for Hell after death. The church used indulgences to convince guilty minded people of the renaissance to pay their money to visit a catacomb of people who devoted their lives to the church and it was supposedly a cleaning and would send you to Heaven, after
