  • Saint John Of The Cross - 1,967 words
    Saint John Of The Cross Saint John of the Cross - I abandoned and forgot myself, laying my face on my Beloved; all things ceased; I went out from myself, leaving my cares forgotten among the lilies. John of the Cross is one of the acknowledged masters of mystical theology. It is thought among present day theologians that there is no other writer who has had a greater influence on Catholic spirituality than John of the Cross. He is a canonized saint of the Catholic Church and was made a Doctor of the Church because of his extreme influence on present day doctrine. His dedication as a leader in service is surpassed only by his deep faith in the workings of the Trinity through Jesus on earth as ...

  • Saint Report: - 1,001 words
    Saint Report: St. Nicholas St. Nicholas, called "of Bari", Bishop of Myra (Fourth Century) 6 Dec. Feast day. The great veneration with which this saint has been honored for many ages and the number of altars and churches which have been everywhere dedicated in his memory are testimonials to his holiness and of the glory which he enjoys with God. He is said to have been born at Patara in Lycia, a province of Asia Minor. Myra, the capital, not far from the sea, was an episcopal see, and this church falling vacant, the holy Nicholas was chosen bishop, and in that station became famous by his extraordinary piety and zeal and many astonishing miracles. The Greek histories of his life agree that h ...

In the morning the Emporor and the prefect compared notes, and the condemned men were sent for and questioned. When he heard that they had called on the name of the Nicholas of Myra who had appeared to him, Constatine set them free and sent them to the bishop with a letter asking him not to threaten him any more but to pray for the peace of the world. For long this was the most famous miracle of St. Nicholas, and at the time of St. Methodius was the only thing generally known about him. The accounts are un ...

  • Sake Of Belonging - 631 words
    Sake Of Belonging annon Just for the Sake of Belonging Two common ways of handling a situation are either to do so according to ones own personal needs and desires with no specific regard to other people, or one can base a decision on how it will be viewed by others. The vast majority of people fall on the side of being worried about what others are saying and thinking. Both good and bad can come from living this way, but it has seemed to remain constant throughout history. People have a natural desire to belong, and to fit in with a certain group. No matter what group an individual chooses, that individual almost always is forced sacrifice a part of them self in order to seem more a part of ...

  • Salem Witch Trial - 1,183 words
    Salem Witch Trial This is about witchcraft and is started like this: In the winter of 1691-92, several people in Salem Village, most of them young women, but eventually including a few men and boys, began behaving in a strange & unusual manner", with an affect which was interpreted as illness. The town's minister, Samuel Parris, whose daughter and niece were among those with this odd affect, sought to cure the perceived problem with prayer; others, including a doctor of physic who was called in, felt that the people in question were afflicted with a witch's supernatural curse, and this diagnosis came to be accepted as true. Friends and relatives prompted the afflicted people to name their su ...

  • Salem Witch Trials - 1,283 words
    Salem Witch Trials In Relation to America History shows that the story which an author writes must often pertain to actual events in some way or another. Everything from historical books, to the most seemingly far-fetched science fiction have their roots in some form of reality. Arthur Miller, one of the greatest and most well known playwrights of the twentieth century bases many of his characters off of real, living people. This can easily be seen in his world renowned play, The Crucible, which tells the story of the colonial Salem witch trials. The story has many characters, all of whom vary from one another in one way or another. These variances are very much like those of real colonial p ...

  • Salem Witch Trials - 1,164 words
    Salem Witch Trials The Salem Witch trials started in 1692 resulted in 19 executions and 150 accusations of witchcraft. This is one of the historical events almost everyone has heard of. It is a topic that is talked about, and can be seen as controversial. A quote by Laurie Carlson shows just how controversial the topic can be. (A) character myth is certainly what the witch hunts in Europe and Salem have become, though they have more basis in fact than most myths. The stories of the witch hunts are character myths for our time, to be told by feminists, left-wing intellectuals, and lawyers for President Clinton, each taking what he or she needs from the story, adding or subtracting as it seems ...

In the film The Burning Times, some of the clues that were seen included strange marks on the body (e.g. birthmarks and extra nipples - which were considered witches teats used to suckle demons). More controversial was spectral evidence. The afflicted girls and some male witnesses said that they had seen spectres (normally invisible spirits) of the accused either in the courtroom or at other times, and that these spectras tried to cause harm to them. These actions included choking, frightening or tormenting them. No doubt, some of those who confessed, and their l ...

    Salem Witch Trials Chadwick Hansen. Witchcraft at Salem. New York: George Braziller, INC., 1969. 252pp. Many people believe that the witch-hunt of Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, was based upon mere delusions of a few frightened teenage girls. Despite the popular viewpoint of many other historians, Chadwick Hansen's book, Witchcraft at Salem, offers a generally discarded point of view. He uses exhausted research and well-written material to argue that the events of 1692 were true signs of witchcraft. Hansen proves this thesis by elaborate descriptions of the girls who were afflicted and by extensive trial evidence. In many historical writings the girls that were afflicted by the witches were u ...

  • Salinger, Jd The Catcher In The Rye - 619 words
    Salinger, J.D. The Catcher in the Rye Holden Caulfield, the main character in J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, is what I believe to be one of the most well-developed characters which I have read about. He has many characteristics that are all his own, such as the way he views the world, his friends and his family. One of the main things that characterizes Holden, is that way that he thinks the entire world is "phony." Holden's view of the world as "phony" is a very strong one, and in most cases, is correct. Holden thinks that the majority of the people in the world are putting on some sort of an act to impress or befriend people. In a way, Holden is probably correct in thinking that m ...

  • Salivary - 979 words
    Salivary Amylase Lab In this laboratory, I observed the process by which salivary amylase, an enzyme secreted by the salivary glands in the mouth, breaks starch down into maltose. This requires a relatively straightforward experiment with only a couple of indicators, some test tubes, and a starch source. To understand the process, one has to understand chemical reactions with enzymes and the its major role in the digestive system of the human (Chapter 37). Just to refresh the reader, I will define a few words that will appear later on in the lab. Starch is complex compilation of simple sugars (or a polysaccharide) that when broken down into simpler substance, forms two-sugar maltose (a disac ...

Salmon was the common name applied to fish characterized by an elongated body covered with small, rounded scales and a fleshy fin between the dorsal fin and tail. In this paper I will be discussing history of studying salmon, the life cycle, spawning and mating behaviors; which has much to do with the total reproduction of salmon. Salmon were studied earlier than some may think. Experiments were done by men that date back to the mid-1600s. These experiments involved catching salmon in fresh water, tagging them, and t ...

  • Salsa Music - 1,193 words
    Salsa Music Since Columbus "discovered" America and the slave trade began, music has always been a very important part of the Cuban culture. Cubas strategic position in the Caribbean, made it a real crossroad for all the trades between Central and North America and for most of the incoming slave ships from Africa. Cuba became a "sponge" that absorbed and processed all the surrounding music influences and all the incoming African rhythms and melodies. Since those days the music has mutated many times and through out the years one genres of music gave birth to new ones one of the most resent of those mutations has been called Salsa.
