- The Rotunda Plan Vs. The Basilica - 490 words
Both the Rotunda and the Basilica plans were used in Early Christian Churches, but the styles are very different. The Basilica plan church is the simpler of the two. It is based on the Basilicas of the Greek and Roman cultures. The Early Christian Churches adapted the Greek and Roman design to suit their religious needs. They took the original rectangular plan and changed it to look like the Holy Cross by adding a transept. This is seen in the Early Christian Church of St. Apollinare, in Ravenna Italy. They added an atrium in front of the entrance to the church. The church still has columns, but they were on the inside, lining the nave, where the worshipers stood and today we sit. There were ...

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 ...

- Dances With Wolves - 676 words
Dances With Wolves Dance With Wolves In reality, Native American Life doesnt differ from our life as much as people believe. When compared the beliefs and customs are somewhat similar. Native Americans have tribes in which determine their place in life, we have social classes which determine the people whom we interact. Many thought the Native Americans were different because they had different customs or rituals, but we actually take after the Native Americans in our own different freedoms of religion and beliefs.

- Gun Control - 619 words
Gun Control Everyone in the United States of America has an opinion on gun control regardless of their age, race, or religion. From within those opinions arguments are formed.

- Hate Crimes In America - 1,944 words
Hate Crimes In America Hate Crimes In America Did you know that people with blonde hair have low I.Q.s? Or that people less than five feet tall are more likely to spread a disease? How about that people with brown eyes are really worshipers of Satan? That did not sound very logical, did it? No, you know that people with blonde hair can be as smart or as unintelligent as the next person, that short people are not necessarily better hosts to disease, and that people with brown eyes can believe in whatever they want. Some people, on the other hand, would say these things made perfect sense when applied to a different race, religion, ethnic background, gender or sexual orientation. The idea of p ...

- Old Testament Exegetical: Psalm 74 - 1,740 words
Old Testament Exegetical: Psalm 74 Old Testament Exegetical Paper: Psalm 74 For my Old Testament exegetical paper I have chosen Psalm 74. This passage was hard for me to read because it rebukes God for letting temples and other holy places be destroyed. In this paper I hope to gain a better understanding of this chapter. I will define two terms that I find to be key to understanding this passage. Reading two commentaries on Psalm 74 I will discuss the authorship, date and place of writing, audience and purpose of this passage. The term congregation is defined by The Eerdmans Bible Dictionary as a gathering of various types. More specifically congregation is defined as the popular assembly or ...

- Shintoism - 865 words
Shintoism Shinto, which means the way of the gods, has no real founder, no written scriptures, no main laws, and only a very loosely organized priesthood.

In Shinto natural objects such as rivers, mountains, and heavenly bodies can be worshipped and personified.

- The Catacombs And Christian Persecutions - 782 words
The Catacombs and Christian Persecutions The Catacombs and Christian Persecutions The catacombs are the ancient underground cemeteries used by the Christians and the Jewish people in Rome.

In the beginning they were only burial places, but later they gathered to celebrate their funeral rites, and the anniversaries of the saints and of the dead. During the persecutions the catacombs were used as places of momentary refuge for the celebration of the Eucharist. After the persecutions they became real shrines of the saints and held centuries of relics of Christians from ...

- Tom Robinsons Trial And To Kill A Mocking Bird - 1,531 words
... rassment was a subject too mature for their age. The childrens innocence allows them to see through the artificial barrier of colour and to accept and individual for what they are.

His teachings to his children come back to reward him. For example he explains to his daughter Scout how the Cunningham family is poor but proud enough that they do not accept charity. This stimulates enough questions in her young mind that when the she is at the jail when the Lynch Mob arrives she effectively saves Tom Robinsons life by unne ...
