  • Anselm And Aquinas - 1,195 words
    Anselm and Aquinas Although born in Alpine Italy and educated in Normandy, Anselm became a Benedictine monk, teacher, and abbot at Bec and continued his ecclesiastical career in England. Having been appointed the second Norman archbishop of Canterbury in 1093, Anselm secured the Westminster Agreement of 1107, guaranteeing the (partial) independence of the church from the civil state. In a series of short works such as De Libertate Arbitrii (On Free Will), De Casu Diaboli (The Fall of the Devil), and Cur Deus Homo (Why God became Man), Anselm propounded a satisfaction theory of the atonement and defended a theology like Augustines', that emphasized the methodological priority of faith over re ...

  • Beowulf - 536 words
    Beowulf Beowulf People have been telling stories for centuries. During Anglo Saxon periods, since very few people could read or write, oral tradition was the only way people remembered, and told of dangerous stories. Transcriptions written were those done by many order of monks among those the Benedictine monk. Men in this era were brave, loyal, and a mixed group of Germanic tribes. They lived on Europe's northern seaboard and southern Scandinavia, they were known as Angles, Saxons, Jutes, and in this case, the Danes. The Danes brought about a Heroic Epic named Beowulf.

  • Cloister Walk - 1,039 words
    Cloister Walk In The Cloister Walk, American poet Kathleen Norris takes the reader through her experiences with life in a Benedictine monastery. She writes 75 short tales, each one dealing with a different observation.. One thing that appealed to me about this book is that Kathleen Norris isn't a catholic, nor is she very into church. Her experiences at the monastery help her better understand herself, as well as others. This paper will attempt to link my experiences with those of Kathleen Norris's and the Catholic Tradition. Kathleen Norris moves into the St. John's monastery and her book is based on her nine months there. She has a very poetic personality, and goes to the monastery in sear ...

  • History Of Western Music - 1,250 words
    History of Western Music History of Western Music Most of the early music that we have today still in print is primarily sacred music. This music, for the most part, is in the form of sections of the Mass, such as the Gloria, Kyrie and Agnus Dei. Most people of the Middle Ages were poor peasants who worked all day for meager wages and had no idle time lounging the way the upper classes did. Therefore, there are few extant secular compositions of music from this era. The rise of a new middle class, however, gave financial freedom for some people to spend time and money on entertainment in the form of music and dance. Thus, the rise of the middle classes also gave way to the rise in compositio ...

  • Hitler - 675 words
    Hitler More than twelve million people were killed in concentration camps, six million were Jewish. All of these horrifying events were consequences of the evening, April 20, 1889, when the one man responsible for all of this was born. Adolf Hitler was born into a loving family of small farmers and craftsmen. He had one half-sister, Angela, and one half-brother, Alois, Jr. Hitler's mother loved him very much and anyone could tell, because she showered him with affection. In his early school years, Adolf was a truly good student. He even took singing lessons and sang in the choir at a Benedictine monastery. He found the church festivals fascinating. His enthusiasm for the church soon began to ...

  • Jiminy Cricket Pinnochios Travel Through Time, Learning About The History Of The English Language - 1,206 words
    ... chio. Thats right, answered Jimminy. Some shared vocabulary also survived the Great Compromise, like wish and want, and shirt and skirt. Some purely Viking vocabulary also found its way into the English Language. For example; anger, brang, happy, hug, ugly, wrong, and ill are all Viking words. Words in the English language that start with sc and sk come from early Viking invaders. The Great Compromise sure had an affect on the English language, said Pinocchio. It sure did! And, not only did the Great Compromise contribute to the English language, it also started the transition from Old English to Middle English. This begins following the Norman invasion of England in 1066 A.D. Why did th ...

  • Medieval Monasticism - 681 words
    Medieval Monasticism There is little doubt that the monastic ideal exercised a powerful influence on the communities in which monasteries were found. It has been estimated that there were around 340 religious houses and about 15,000 men and women in religious orders in the last quarter of the twelfth century in England and Wales. Rievaulx and the other surviving Yorkshire abbeys are testimony to the major building work then under way in that part of the European community. Abbots such as Ailred became influential 52figures in the church (Coleman, 1993). Italian abbots were automatic members of kings councils, simply because of their station, their influence, and their service. Though not the ...

  • Mozart - 1,962 words
    Mozart "The classical period produced more instrumental than vocal music, a wealth of serious and comic operas as well as vocal religious music also appeared during this time"(Ferris, 231). One of the best composer of this time was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In this paper I will go through his childhood, his friends and family, and of course his music. Enjoy!!! Child of the Enlightenment The world that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart entered ceremoniously in 1756 was brimming in change. Historians refer to this era as the Age of Enlightenment, one of unparalleled scientific, philosophical, and political ferment.

Peter Abelard (also spelled Abeillard, Abailard, etc., while the best MSS. have Abaelardus) was born in the little village of Pallet, about ten miles east of Nantes in Brittany. His father, Berengar, was lord of the village, his mother's name was Lucia; both afterwards entered the monastic state. Peter, the oldest of their children, was intended for a military career, but, as he himself tells us, he abandoned Mars for Minerva, the profession of arms for that of learning. Accordingly, at an early age, he left his father's castle and sought instruction as a wand ...

  • Religion As A Cyber Society - 1,289 words
    Religion As A Cyber Society The exponential growth of the Cyber society and Cyber culture within the Internet has not gone unnoticed by the religious community. As I write, church web sites are being published and electronic prayer groups zip by in modems and wire networks across the globe. Even isolated monasteries like the Monastery of the Christ in the Desert (see sidebar) are able to send their Benedictine messages from their cloister in New Mexico. New age religions also use the [virtual] soil of the Internet as the center of their virtual church (see end of the Cyber society Observation for links on religious web pages). With these in mind, it is safe to write that Religion has seamles ...

  • Science Alchemy Alchemy, Ancient Art Practiced Especially In The Middle Ages, Devoted Chiefly To Discovering A Substance That - 850 words
    Science Alchemy Alchemy, ancient art practiced especially in the Middle Ages, devoted chiefly to discovering a substance that would transmute the more common metals into gold or silver and to finding a means of indefinitely prolonging human life. Although its purposes and techniques were dubious and often illusory, alchemy was in many ways the predecessor of modern science, especially the science of chemistry. The birthplace of alchemy was ancient Egypt, where, in Alexandria, it began to flourish in the Hellenistic period; simultaneously, a school of alchemy was developing in China. The writings of some of the early Greek philosophers might be considered to contain the first chemical theorie ...

    The Childhood Of Adolf Hitler: The Nativity Of Evil The childhood of Adolf Hitler: The nativity of evil Intro: An idea such as killing millions of people to create a more prefect world or sameness throughout the human race is absolutely psychotic and unrealistic. This vision was a fantasy world that no one on the earth would ever live in. Yet there was one man that truly believed in this fantasy. He had a plan, a scheme, sketched out in his head, of how this world would work. Yet the strange thing was that he did not fit in his own perfect world. Many ask how would someone come across this image? How is it possible? This image was created with constant negative influences throughout his life ...

  • The Existence Of God - 595 words
    The Existence Of God Philosophy as defined by our required text is said to be the love of wisdom. It is the search for the larger picture, the demand for knowledge. There are many questions in philosophy, many involving the subject of religion. Does God exist? Should we believe in God? Is belief in God justified? These are just some of the questions attempted to be answered in philosophy. Every philosopher has a different opinion on the existence of God. St. Anselm (1033-1109) was a Benedictine monk; his philosophical views were very much influenced by Plato (Mavrodes 26). His greatest works were Monologium, Proslogium, Cur Dues Homo. St. Anselm had many views on God and religion, but instea ...
