The Spanish Inquisition - ... The Church began to empower government officials called Inquisitors to essentially hunt down “unbelievers” and quietly question them about their faith (Bachrach 12). Nearly all of the questioned citizens would refuse to co-operate. This infuriated the Inquisitors and the Holy Office, and harsh punishments gradually increased. These despicable Inquisitions originally began circa 1200 A.D. and different Inquisitions continued until nearly 1850 A.D. (Bachrach 13). The Spanish Inquisition, the cruelest of all, seemed an innocent way to convert Jews and other minority groups at first, but it took a drastic turn to violence....   [tags: Religion, Catholic Church, Spanish Government] 718 words

The Importance Of Learning Spanish - As we approach the 21st century and as the idea of a "global village" is fast becoming a reality, it is vital that we enlarge our worldview and reach an understanding of, and appreciation for, the cultures of the other peoples who share the planet with us. As cultural beings, we are raised with an certain way of giving order to the world around us. Very soon, these "cultural filters," which allow us to make sense of reality and shape it, become fixed, invisible and unconscious; they are part of our worldview which - as unique as we might think it is - rests on the shared values of a particular linguistic community....   [tags: Learning Spanish]

History of the Battle of the Spanish Armada - History of the Battle of the Spanish Armada      The great naval battle between Spain and England in 1588- one of the most important battles in the history of the world- is known as the Battle of the Invincible Armada. But in a sense, this is a misnomer. An invincible armada is one that cannot be defeated, yet the mighty fleet of warships that Spain sent to invade England, was defeated so badly that Spain could never again rule the oceans. How was it possible that this armada, which had awed all of Europe with its size and strength, was unable to stand up against the forces of a much smaller and less powerful enemy....   [tags: Spanish Armada History Battles War Essays] 4112 words

Kyd’s The Spanish Tragedy - The Humanist Chronotope - Kyd’s The Spanish Tragedy - The Humanist Chronotope In "Forms of Time and of the Chronotope in the Novel," Mikhail Bakhtin defines the chronotope as "the intrinsic connectedness of temporal and spatial relationships that are artistically expressed in literature" (84). That is what the chronotope is; Bakhtin continues with what the chrontope does: "It can even be said that it is precisely the chronotope that defines genre and generic distinctions" (85). In The Spanish Tragedy, Kyd layers three chronotopic zones to create a new chronotope, the "humanist chronotope," which in turn creates a unique dramatic genre, one we might call "humanist drama." According to Bakhtin, two seminal chronotopes from classical literature form the basis of most later chronotopes....   [tags: Spanish Tragedy]

Spanish Language's Influence on the Puerto Rican Identity - Spanish Language's Influence on the Puerto Rican Identity The initial occupation of Puerto Rico by the Spaniards carries an important implication for language as part of the Puerto Rican identity. The Spanish language was imposed upon the inhabitants of the island, the Tainos, in the sixteenth century, when the Spanish inhabited the island in 1502, after the Spanish conquerors claimed the island in the name of Spain in 1493. Eventually, the Spanish had moved out or taken over the ways of the old and their culture infiltrated that of the Taino to create a new dimension of the first storey, where the Spanish language was incorporated as the building blocks of the foundation of the Puerto Rican identity (Figueroa, Sept.15)....   [tags: Spanish Puerto Rico Essays History]

Therefore, those in power venerate justice. Revenge, however, upsets the delicate balance that holds Spanish society together.
