He depicts a medieval church and the power of nature and allows them to work together; to coincide. Although there are storm clouds in the painting, by placing a rainbow in the storm it sends a message that there is a balance and peace between humans and nature. This differs greatly from the stance of the Enlightenment thinkers that pushed away the mysterious and random elements of nature, and instead opted for reason and order. Other examples of nature can be found in Document C, Caspar David Frieddrich's The Polar Sea and Document D, Joseph Turner’s Rain, Steam, and Speed. These two paintings represent aspects of Romantic’s conflicting ideas of nature.
Comparing Northern & Southern Renaissance Works The styles and subject matters of Northern and Italian artists do have their differences when looked at closely. It seems that the greatest explanation for their separate subject matters is the different religions that the Northern and Southern regions believed. For both the North and South of Italy it would not be wrong to suggest that the society that the two halves lived in was dominated by religion. For the North it was Protestantism for the south it was Catholicism. The North faced a more austere and miserable environment which is somewhat represented in their work whereas the south were more focused on bringing out the religious imagery of the Bible in their artists works.
Beginning in the early 16th century, the Protestant Reformation brought on radical changes that resulted in a break from the Catholic Church for many, and the creation of new religions. Throughout the course of the Reformation from the 16th to 18th centuries, both Protestants and Catholics had strong opinions on religious toleration. Some were tolerant to the other religions, claiming that co-existing with various groups would ensure lasting peace. Others viewed toleration as a practical approach to prevent disorder and disunity. However, there were many who opposed religions that were not their own and declared the people who practiced them as “heretics.” Clearly, there were various perspectives concerning religious during this two-century
The Success of ‘The Edict of Nantes’ in 1598. The Edict of Nantes in 1598 was only a temporary solution to the religious wars in France from 1562-1598. There were several attempts to bring peace and unity to France during this time but each attempt was met with hostility by both sides and a common ground was not found until the reign of Henry IV. The problems with the Edict of Nantes’ predecessors were that they heavily favoured the Catholics and never met the demands of the Huguenots. The likes of the Edict of Saint-Germaine and Ambroise both gave small successions to the Huguenots but not what they desired.
The idea shown in source 7 of Henry not being able to fully separate himself from his catholic beliefs is further back up by the evidence found in source 8. Although we have to be aware of the fact that source 8 was written by Bishop Tunstall to Reginald Pole in 1536, which means that it may be slightly biased towards Catholicism. The source states that Henry wishes to remain a part of the “unity of Christ’s Catholic Church”. Which tells us that Protestantism is not making enough progress in England as to convince the King, yet it is still making gains. Also in the source, Henry’s title of “Supreme Head” is mentioned.
This did pose a problem for the growth of nationalism as the Northern states looked to Prussian for support, as she was the protestant superpower amongst the German states. The southern states on the other hand looked to Austria, due to her religious alliegience being Catholic. This mutual religion among the northern states caused them to support Prussia, and vice versa in the southern states with Austria. Thus, it was more than just religion that divided the German states. The tension and rivalry that existed between the two largest German states made worse the existing religious divisions and made the possibility of unification more problematic.
Northern renaissance mostly focused on religious ideas. They were more concern with reform the church and adopt the path of early Christian church. Jan van Eyck’s Ghent Altarpiece (closed), Saint Bavo Cathedral, Ghent and Rogier vander Weyden’s Deposition also show this concept. Also northern renaissance art artist were more realistic than Italian renaissance artists. Their painting didn’t have Greek gods but real people.
New England colonies .vs. The Chesapeake Region Despite the same English origins, when compared to the Chesapeake region, the New England colonies up to the 18th century had evolved from religious motives for settlement rather than for profit, economic drives were lower and less focused on agriculture, and both regions held different governing styles in their respective colonies. Since the first settlements, New England had always been more religiously focused than its counterpart the Chesapeake region. John Winthrop’s address to his fellow colonists mainly held religious values that would help unify the colony. John Porter’s List of Emigrants also had religiously focused groups; these 4 or so families left Old England to escape the religious persecution they felt.
In Cosi, Doug’s preferred composer is the 1950’s rock and roll artist Little Richard. When he first hears Roy mention ‘Cosi Fan Tutte’ he mistakenly thinks he is referring to the Little Richard song ‘’Tutti Frutti’’. The use of contrasting of Little Richards song ‘’Tutti Frutti’’ against Cosi Fan Tutte, a classical Italian opera demonstrates two different genre’s. The two different music genre’s demonstrates that Roy and Doug have been changed through popular culture to like different kinds of music and thus changed their identity. Due to the popular culture of rock, the genre of classical wasn’t favoured and mainstream.
But did the people bring this on themselves or did they disagree with the reformations? The historian Ethan Shagan believes that the people stirred the changes-- they wanted the change from Catholicism and this is why there was not too much popular revolt. In his book "Popular Politics and the English Reformation", Shagan claims that to have written "a narrative which acknowledges for the first time that the Reformation was necessarily based, like all aspects of Tudor government, on the collaboration of the governed." However, other scholars believe that English citizens preferred Catholicism and
