Roman Catholicism was the Christian religion of England until the Reformation, with the introduction of Protestantism and establishment of the Church of England in the sixteenth century. Against this background, we explore to what extent these aspects had on tradition during the nineteenth century, when English Christianity experienced a mixture of expanding dissent and renewing tradition. It may be argued that the Catholic minority considered they were guardians of authentic tradition. Many events during the nineteenth century influenced restoration of Catholic traditions. There was an influx of Catholic immigrants, especially from Ireland.
The first group of documents shows the intellectual thought behind the creation of the revolutionary calendar and the reasons for its adoption. A report of grievances in 1789, shows how the though of the calendar came to be. The document asks for the number of religious holidays to be reduced and uses disadvantages of idleness as an excuse (Document 1). Gilbert Romme, head of the calendar reform committee, speaks of the cons of the Church calendar. In his speech before the National Convention, he claims the Church calendar to debase nations and persuades people that a new calendar is a must for every Frenchman.
The Protestant Reformation was the schism within Western Christianity initiated by John Wycliffe, Jan Hus, Martin Luther, John Calvin, and other earlyProtestants. It was sparked by the 1517 posting of Luther's Ninety-Five Theses. The efforts of the self-described "reformers", who objected to ("protested") the doctrines, rituals, leadership, and ecclesiastical structure of the Roman Catholic Church, led to the creation of new national Protestant churches. The Reformation was precipitated by earlier events within Europe, such as the Black Death and the Western Schism, which eroded people's faith in the Catholic Church and the Papacy that governed it. This, as well as many other factors, such as the spread of Renaissance ideas, the spread of the printing

Safire highlights the imagery of birth, death and rebirth in his discussion of Lincoln’s speech. “Consider the barrage of images of birth in the opening sentence” (Safire 42). Throughout his analysis, Safire continues to highlight how Lincoln used the images of birth, death and rebirth to highlight the history of America. Safire goes to great length to breakdown the speech and show how Lincoln described each course of life with terms such as, “in the middle of the dedication, to those who sacrificed themselves, come images of death” and “the nation’s spirit rises from this scene of death” (Safire 42). Highlighting these images moves the reader to better understand the message Lincoln was trying to accomplish of finalizing the Civil War and uniting a nation to move pass it’s indifferences.
In the year of 1492 Christopher Columbus discovered the ‘New World’ which we now call North America while trying to find an alternate and faster route to the Indies.

It discusses the Christian history of England, also its political history, from the time of Caesar’s invasion to the year it was completed. It also talks about king's and bishops, monks and nuns who helped to develop Anglo-Saxon government and religion during the crucial years of the English people. These three works are similar in some sense and different in others. I think that Vico's, The New Science and Machiavelli's, The Prince or more similar to each than that of Bede's work. Both Vico and Machiavelli talk about stages in which a person goes through, but they talk about two completely different stages.

Sharp studied at Eton and King’s College, and he received a doctorate from Oxford University in 1618. He was present on the site of the speech in the capacity of chaplain to Robert Devereux, second Earl of Essex. He was assigned to repeat the speech to the troops that might have been unable to hear it from the Queen. That is the reason why he wrote it down and was able to recall it in a letter to the Duke of Buckingham 35 years later. There is no certain evidence that this accurate transcription was the actual speech delivered by Elizabeth I and there is a possibility that Leonel Sharp might have embellished it.
