St Camillus De Lellis History: Bucchianico, Abruzzo, 1550; died at Rome, 14 July, 1614 He had a military background. Mother died at an early age. The kindness of a Franciscan friar induced him to apply for admission to that order, but he was refused. He then betook himself to Rome, where he obtained employment in the Hospital for Incurables. He was prompted to go there chiefly by the hope of a cure of abscesses in both his feet from which he had been long suffering.
It shows how he struggled while he was alive to earn for his family and profit off of his music. Like so many great artists of his time, he only was able to gain fame and fortune posthumous. You see a role that his family may have played in not only helping but also hindering in his writing of music. And most importantly it shows off his expertise in the understanding of music, one point in the movie depicting Mozart writing an entire symphony in his head. The movie showed the Classical Spirit typical to that commonly associated with late 1700’s Europe.
One of the greatest of the Roman pontiffs and one of the most remarkable men of all times; born between the years 1020 and 1025, at Soana, or Ravacum, in Tuscany; died 25 May, 1085, at Salerno. The early years of his life are involved in considerable obscurity. His name, Hildebrand (Hellebrand)--signifying to those of his contemporaries that loved him "a bright flame", to those that hated him "a brand of hell"--would indicate some Lombard connection of his family, though at a later time, it probably also suggested the fabled descent from the noble family of the Aldobrandini. That he was of humble origin--vir de plebe, as he is styled in the letter of a contemporary abbot--can scarcely be doubted. His father Bonizo is said by some chroniclers to have been a carpenter, by others a peasant, the evidence in either case being very slender; the name of his mother is unrecorded.
Charlemagne, also known as Charles the Great, became the ruler of Western Europe, by his fierce battle tactics and his passion for Christianity. Charlemagne was born in 742 AD, to a very famous family. Charlemagne’s grandfather was Charles Martel, and Charlemagne was also the oldest son of Pepin the Short, the first king of the Franks. As Western Europe was falling apart, Charlemagne was crowned king of the Franks in 768 AD. Charlemagne defeated thousands of barbarians and kings during his time of power.
He decides that he will run away to Kansas only to escape the problems he cannot confront in his family. Krebs is the perfect example of the difficult re-adaptation process World War I veterans had to go through. Unable to go back to society’s old ways, these soldiers became known as the “Lost Generation”. To combat their feelings of disillusionment and depression, this new generation’s lifestyles became full of parties, drinking, smoking and other habits that had been previously looked down upon, and gave rise to the wild Roaring
Martin Luthor, the revolutionary who had the courage to stand up against the Church’s corrupt ways and put his career and life on the line, had his rage set off due to one man in particular’s actions. Tetzel was a traveling friar who would charge peasants money just to have their loved one has set free from Purgatory. Tetzel was authorized by Pope Leo X to charge people money for the Pope to do his duties. All to create Saint Peter’s Basilica.
The Italian writer and poet, Niccolo Machiavelli, wrote a world famous book titled The Prince, which gave suggestions on how a proper ruler should lead his country. If Machiavelli was the ruler of Italy during the fifteenth century, he would have defended his country and restored the success and power they once had. Machiavelli became a politician at Florence in 1498, which was four years after the Medici family had been expelled from the city. Machiavelli loved politics, and was always traveling between Italy, Germany, and France. However, with the French defeat and Spanish victory over Florence in 1512, Machiavelli was sent into exile.

Throughout history there has been individuals who greatly changed the world by simply following their intuition and standing up for what they believed to be right. In my opinion Martin Luther was one of these great people. Martin Luther left his schooling in German Law to become a Monk after fearing for his life while traveling in a thunderstorm. He cried out to St. Anne for protection and promised if the storm spared him his life he would become a Monk (Martin Luther, n.d., para 3). Martin Luther spent his montastic life studying scripture and Catholic doctrine and while studying found that the Roman Catholic church had strayed far from the teachings of the doctrine and was becoming corrupt.
