He also says that the Buddha is a barbarian and that his bones should be cast into a fire and that his evil should be rooted out. Tang Emperor Wu, an Edict on Buddhism also did not like the spread of Buddhism. He said that Buddhism was poisoning Chinese culture and that it wears out the peoples strength, pilfers their wealth, and causes people to abandon their lords and parents. All these things that both Han Yu and Tang Emperor Wu said about Buddhism clearly proves
Becket upset the King's plan to consolidate the power of the church with the power of the state; therefore, he represented a threat to stability and security. Third, and finally, Brito asks the audience to consider well the question, "Who killed the Archbishop?" He argues that, in effect, Becket killed himself by his unquenchable pride. He condemns Becket as "a monster of egotism." Following these speeches, Fitz Urse urges the audience to disperse quietly to their homes.
AAS 300 Jia Kim The Chosŏn Dynasty and Confucianization 1. State the critical reason for Chosŏn Confucian scholars’ condemnation of Buddhism. In koryo, Buddhism was embraced as the state religion but became an enemy by adherents of Confucianism. Choe Sung-no, a model Confucian argued that frequent Buddhist ceremonies harmed people and that Buddhism thinks about the afterlife rather than the present. Some of the Confucians of the late Koryo period opposed Buddhism as they burned down temples and slashed the throat of monks.
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
This was to prevent complacency and make his mark within the military. However, by removing so many important leaders, he weakened the leadership and therefore put strain on his forces, making it more difficult to attain victory, and increasing the chances of the opposition. Additionally, Stalin purged all military intelligence, blaming them for not alerting Russia of Germany’s invasion plans. This meant that he had no eyes on international affairs. Also, generals who performed badly against the Germans were shot on site.
Meetings involving town councils analyzed the poor as those “unwilling to work” as well as being “harmful to the public good” and not to mention their actions to “expel the poor from the city” (Doc.5). France’s Cardinal Richelieu added to that by stating that they have turned to begging and stealing from the sick (Doc. 8). Due to their crimes, this lead society to alienate them. Netherland’s Emperor Charles V stated, “If begging for alms is permitted to everyone indiscriminately, many errors and abuse will result for they will fall into idleness, which is the beginning of all evil” (Doc.4).
The result of this action by the Tsar meant that the people who used to think is was god on earth have now undermine him, this also meant that there was an increase in riots, murders and public property damage. The Tsar, possibly in embarrassment, allowed for the changes they wanted to be allows, it was known as the October Manifesto or the October Promises. However, these promises were never really kept, the voting system was rigged which meant that the poor people had no effect, and was
Before Romero’s bitter feelings towards the government, it already had death squads and military targeting the reformers (“El Salvadoran”). What made it worse was when they refused to investigate the murder of Romero’s closest friend (“Oscar Romero”). The church was opposed to Romero and his ideas because it went against church teachings. Originally, the Vatican had sent Romero to El Salvador to restore conservative authority because they knew that liberation theology was on the rise, and they wanted to suppress it (Foley 78). The constant jump from political to religious issues created lack of unity, which is what aimed this campaign towards failure.
* I believe the event that actually triggered the revolt was the battle of Poitiers and Crecy. The peasants resented the noble’s failure to use them in the fight against the enemy and felt less fear of them as the knights lost prestige in the defeats. That is when all that anger from being demoted every time really built up and shot
He called together meetings in places that were far away from their own public records only to pretty much bore and tire them into obeying whatever he wanted. Then he repeatedly broke up the Representative Houses for opposing his views on invading into the rights of the people. The Representative House didn’t like how the king wanted to attack people’s personal rights so the king would just get rid of them. Then, after terminating them, he refused for a long time to allow others to be elected into those positions. His actions just showed how much he didn’t care and how he got in the way of the development of the state as a whole.
