  • A Comparison Of Judaism, Islam, Christianity - 1,589 words
    ... from their homes. Much persecution of Jews by Christians has been justified by the belief that the Jews were responsible for the death of Christ. In Nazi Germany and after the fall of the Third Reich, many Germans said that even though what happened to the Jews of Europe during World War Two was horrible, they did bring it on themselves because they were responsible for the death of Jesus. The Christian/Muslim conflicts began during the seventh century CE, with the fall of the Byzantine cities in Egypt and the Holy Land within ten years of the death of Muhammad. "Europeans watched in horror as the Holy Lands became Muslim and the "infidel" advanced into Spain" (Fisher, p.382). This Euro ...

But these data invariably fail to take account of changes in availability or use of facilities, changes in admission or diagnostic policies, or changes in the source of beverages--for example, from unrecorded to recorded supplies. In the Soviet Union a change in the internal political situation with the death of Stalin resulted in a shift from official denial that any significant problem of alcoholism existed to an outcry that its prevalence was widespread and serious, though no statistics were provided. Treatment of alcoholism The various treatments of alcoholism may be classified as physiological, psychological, and social. ...

  • Antigone - 966 words
    Antigone "If they only Knew" When two people have an uncompromisible difference in opinion they are forced to become enemies. Sophocles illustrates this in the tragedy Antigone through the main characters, Antigone and Creon. Antigone, King Oedipuss daughter, has come back to Thebes after king Creon has put her two brothers Polyneices and Etocles to death. After being killed only one brother is given a proper burial, the other one, Polynecius, is left out to be "chewed up by birds and dogs (page 168 line 225)." Creon is adamant about not allowing Polyneices, a traitor to Thebes to have burial rights. He warns that acts against his decision will pay a price. Since Antigone believes Creon is m ...

The battle ended and Melegans took the survivors captive so none of them could tell Lancelot, because he feared him greatly. After hearing that a message was secretly sent to Lancelot he prepared a trap for him. When Lancelot approached the site of the battle he had his horse shot out from under him. As he walked on to Melegans castle a cart came along on which he hitched a ride, which it was shameful for a knight to ride in the back of a cart (Bullfinch, n,p.). Once Lancelot finally got to her she was ashamed he rode in a cart but after telling her h ...

  • Beowulf - 545 words
    Beowulf The oldest English epic, Beowulf, although composed twelve centuries ago, uses many of the same ideals and values that exist in modern life and modern literature. These attributes are still important, but they do not occupy every aspect of life as in Anglo- Saxon England. Some of the ideals have little use today, such as fate, while other virtues, such as loyalty, are encouraged and highly respected traits. Other values, like fame, have taken on bad connotations in modern day and are not esteemed as they once were. Fate, the idea that destiny is predetermined and nothing can be done to change that, was highly esteemed in Beowulfs time, but is of little use today. Anglo-Saxon warriors ...

  • Birth Of A New Era - 1,903 words
    Birth Of A New Era Despite the problems of the fourteenth century, it marked the beginnings of extraordinary changes in numerous facets of fifteenth century society. This astonishing revolution was coined the Renaissance, which meant "rebirth." The Renaissance led to such literary pioneers as Niccol Machiavelli. His work, The Prince, gave detailed instructions as to what qualities a perfect leader must possess and how to use these qualities. Machiavelli presented a thorough account of a perfect prince and how he achieved and maintained power. Machiavelli's The Prince is a classic literary example of Renaissance writing in the ideas it conveys and how it conveys them. The Renaissance, a time ...

  • Black Boy - 722 words
    Black Boy A word is just characters (letters) put together to make a meaning, statement, or idea. In the South, whites wanted power over the blacks, and the only form it came in was a word. By the first amendment the whites had power to use words, as did the journalist against the southern whites. Richard grows up learning about the south and how it demolishes others, and how it stabs him in the back by words. Richard at the age of four learns that words have an undeniable power behind and in front of them. Parents are our first source of knowledge, power, and style of living. They structure us (children) for todays world. Richard began his life without his mother and fathers right hand. The ...

Legislative action should also be taken to ensure that proper procedures are being followed. It took the civil rights movement years to get their point across, but they finally did when the Supreme Court ordered desegregation of schools, buses, restaurants, etc. If a state did not comply, then the National Guard was sent in such as in Little Rock, Arkansas, when the Governor refused to desegregate schools. The federal government tries to let each state rule itself as it says in the constitution, but t ...

Mr. Spahn soon grew desperately afraid of Manson and only allowed him to stay because he enjoyed the attention he got from the girls who cooked and cleaned for him. It was at this ranch that Manson seriously started developing his cult. Mansons following grew and many more people were recruited in the "Family." He started preaching to his followers in bizarre ways. He would have the group take acid trips then listen to him as he spun twisted stories that put ideas into their heads. Charles would reenact the Crucifixion of Christ, trying to instill upon his followers minds that he was Jesus Chri ...

  • Christian - 1,749 words
    Christian Persecutions Kyle Sokul 453516 History 114, Dr. Kalinowsk Christian Persecutions Christianity first comes to the forefront of society in the first three centuries A.D. It does this though under extreme duress, as any person who claimed to be a Christian faced persecution at the hands of the Roman emperors. It wasnt until 313 AD, under the Emperor Constantine, that Christianity was officially recognized as an acceptable religion. Yet, despite the unfavorable conditions, the Christian faith survived and eventually came to play a prominent role in Roman society. This can be directly attributed to the courage showed by the martyrs of this age, and the pride that the rest of the Christi ...

  • Christian Art - 1,626 words
    Christian Art For thousands of years, major factors that influence a society are the effects of such things as religion, government, and art. When people study history, art does not seem to play such an important role. However, art helps us understand how a society feels, thinks, and looks at the surroundings which in they live. Ecclesiastical art or commonly know as Christian art dates back to the first and second centuries. The first influences of Christian art were believed to be Roman in nature. While other historians feel that the Christian art influence came from the east, particularly the Orient. The first know works of Christian art were found in the Roman catacombs. The works found ...

  • Cloning - 1,642 words
    Cloning The most significant problem our world has with newfound controversies is that most people take one side on the issue before they become educated on the topic at hand. This is the same problem that I see with the controversial issue of cloning. Whether one argues for or against the cloning of humans or animals, most people leave out the ethics and morals behind the issue. People see movies like Multiplicity, starring Michael Keaton (a movie in which Michael Keaton clones himself multiple times in an attempt to make his life more enjoyable), and they think to themselves that cloning themselves might be pretty cool. A poll taken by CNN1 on the issue of cloning found that 7% of American ...

  • Controversies Between Church And State - 407 words
    Controversies Between Church And State Controversies Between Church and State During the Middle Ages, church and state leaders had many battles. Some who were involved were Holy Roman Emperor Heinrich IV and Pope Gregory VIII; King II and Archbishop Thomas Becket; King Philip IV and Pope Boniface VIII. Their situations were all related by the fact that they were all controversies between an emperor or king and the Catholic church. The Holy Roman Emperor Heinrich (Henry) IV and Pope Gregory VIIIs struggle was centered on by investiture. Henry invested many bishops at his own will even though Gregory had banned investiture by laity. Henry felt his investiture of bishops was necessary to the co ...

  • Creation And Evo - 1,642 words
    Creation And Evo Creation vs. Evolution Ever since the publication of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species was published there has been an ongoing debate between science and religion. Scientists have formulated many theories as to the origins of man and to the creation of the earth, whereas religious groups have one main creation theory, based on the Genesis story of The Bible. These theories, however, are not the cause of the debate because the different theories are simply myths meant to explain the unknown-- the debate is caused by different belief systems. According to a November 1997 Gallup poll 44% of the people that responded agreed that God created human beings in their present for ...

  • Crucible - 1,051 words
    Crucible By Arthur Miller After reading The Crucible by Arthur Miller, one cannot help but wonder why when given the chance to confess to the accusations and live, did the characters choose to stay firm and die? For people today that question is not easily answered. In the past however, this was not a question at all. The answer was found within the strong religious background that most of the accused were raised on, and the feeling of pride and honor they felt in their hearts. John Proctor exemplifies the importance of a strong name through his actions and choices throughout the play; most significantly the fourth act when he chose death over disgracing his name. Giles Corey's refusal to re ...

Moral implies conformity to established codes or accepted notions of right and wrong. In other words, the basic moral values of society.

  • Descartes Theory Of Substance Dualism - 1,035 words
    Descartes' Theory Of Substance Dualism Descartes' Theory of Substance Dualism Throughout the history of man, philosophers have tried to come up with an explanation of where our minds, or consciousness, came from and how we are able to have a nonphysical characteristic of ourselves. Does our physical brain automatically give us nonphysical characteristics like feelings, thoughts, and desires or is there something else there, the mind, that interacts with our bodies and makes us feel, think, and desire? Also, is the mind the only nonphysical entity in our universe or do other entities exist such as ghosts or souls? One man came up with a theory to explain the two different properties in our un ...
