She kept the Monarch as the Governor of the church not the Pope which is Protestant, I believe this is a good idea because the Protestants will still think she is a true Protestant and she will be popular with them. On the other hand the Catholics would not be happy with this idea because the Monarch is Protestant; also they may start to hate Elizabeth. As well as Bishops ran the church and an English bible, prayer book was used which are both Protestant. But she kept the candles and crucifixes in the church; this meant that the Catholics actually felt a part of the church and would of felt welcomed to enter. The middle policy won lots of support, she said, ‘I will not make a window into men’s souls, there is only one Jesus Christ, and all else is a dispute over trifles.’ This decision was so important to her and England because if she would of chose the wrong choice for example make England Protestant then there would have been a religious war and the Catholics would rebel.
She would make a new prayer book to please the catholic and then change it to English to please the Protestants. During Mary’s reign, persecuted Protestants looked on Elizabeth as their saviour. Many Protestants thought that Elizabeth would turn the country firmly back towards the Protestant religion. In my analysis of Elizabeth’s religious settlement it is clear to see that this is not totally the case. Out of the eight main points of the settlement, I found that Elizabeth had rules that would please both Protestants and Catholic’s.
In Karen Cushman’s children’s novel Catherine, Called Birdy, many anachronistic modern American values make their way into the medieval setting. Cushman places the novel in the heart of Britain in the Middle Ages, but somehow values appear in the novel that do not belong there. Instead of trying to hide her own values when writing the novel, Cushman embraces them, because her book would not sell otherwise. Modern people do not want to read about a young girl that obediently goes along with everything that her father wishes of her even when doing so goes against her own wishes, because standing up for oneself is something that modern Americans value very highly, and they would find the book distasteful and boring if Cushman had written it in such a way. In truth, it was likely rare that a medieval girl would stand up to her father in regards to the suitor that he picked for her.
Do you agree with the view that the main cause of the English reformation was the character and influence of Anne Boleyn? Anne Boleyn was just one of a number of contributing factors in which caused the English reformation, she was not the main reason however she did play a major part in it, as Anne Boleyn could possibly have put forward ideas of reform to Henry being well educated she had the knowledge in which to do so, as she was the only person in which Henry would listen, so it is possible she could have used this as a way of introducing reform. But there are other factors such as Henry’s divorce which is mentioned in source 8, another idea put forward in source 9 is the idea of a corrupt church being the reason for the reformation. Source 7 seems to show Henry being very much being ‘in love’ with Anne Boleyn, for example “He sees nothing and thinks nothing but Anne” taking this into account it is possible that if Anne were to have any ideas regarding reform, Henry being so in love with her would most likely listen to her as he would do most likely do anything for her, judging by what was written in the source about Henry. Furthermore during this time it seems that Henry was still married to Katherine of Aragon so if Anne was at this time introducing these texts to Henry, this could have been a way in which to enable Anne and Henry to marry and for Anne to become queen.
The Votive Figures were created as a sign of their loyalty and devotion to god. The figures showed that their lives were devoted to worshipping a higher power, whereas Venus of Willendorf is made to represent women in their fertility period, showing their focus on human studies by signifying a healthy child bearing woman. Showing this type of art symbolizes the Paleolithic period’s fascination and fear of keeping the human species alive. In conclusion although Venus Of Willendorf and The Votive Figures From Tell Asmar proved to have many differences and similarities, each manage to convey something about their respective cultures and time periods. The appearance of the art pieces certainly related to that particular time, and made their sole interests exceptionally well
In fact, the scientific concepts themselves were quite revolutionary in their presentation. While not completely dedicated to real physics matters, the book is heavily influenced by the works of Einstein and others. It is a feminist novel, but not heavy-handed in its approach. Meg Murray is simply a compelling character, not an overt model of girl power. It is heavily influenced by Madeline L’Engle’s Christianity, but many of its most vocal critics complained about what they saw as anti-Christian material.
From each of these we can see the great positive impact of a person claiming to have been influenced by the divine if they are to be believed. However, one can also see just how much of an uproar having opinions that conflicted with those of the church caused. The first source, the anonymous chronicle found in a manuscript at Orleans, does not deal in too much detail with that of the attitude of people towards Heresy. However it does go into great detail about the life of Joan of Arc and how she mat have come to be portrayed as a Heretic, claiming that she “always let it be understood that she was divinely inspired and that she has the duty under this divine inspiration to place the Dauphin in possession of the Kingdom of France”. Initially people were skeptic of a young
The first half was tough as there were a lot of definitions that contradicted each other in the two classes. But I am very happy to have had these courses together the classes started to come together in the end and they gave me a better understanding of the value of Christianity. In this reflection paper I am going to cover sin as a first subject and contrast my ignorance of what I believed sin was and what I know it to be now. The second topic is one I found very fascinating and was covered in both subjects morals. I believe this subject will help me with my apologetics to atheism.
Peterson strives to appeal to the ethos and pathos of her readers by establishing credibility in order to take advantage of the reader’s strong religious convictions or lack thereof. The author’s project of persuading the audience to agree with her ultimately disappoints due to a weak argument based on faith in lieu of legitimate sources, integrated with fallacious ad populum and ad verecundiam attacks. Although many families have had success practicing Natural Family Planning, this approach requires too much assiduity, self-control, and risk to be a practical birth control method for most families in the twenty-first century. Peterson’s essential argument advocates abstinence and Natural Family Planning as the only true methods of avoiding unwanted pregnancies. According to the author, the use of any other artificial methods of birth control is reprehensible.
Although some women were glad to ban the veil, others felt religiously disrespected since it was their own way to publically display their faith. To some, banning the veil felt like an abandonment of their culture. But in order to gain Western approval, the Middle East felt the need to In 1899 under Qasim Amin’s nationalist movement arose a similarity to Europe and America’s thoughts on women. It was recognized that mothers had great influence on their sons and therefore had the opportunity to mold them into good citizens. Because of this, there was a movement to increase women’s education and status.
