Within days, militiamen suppressed the revolt and Turner was ironically hung in Jerusalem, Virginia. Many took different steps in the fight for equality. Nat Turner, a religious leader among his fellow slaves, become convinced he had been chosen by God to lead his people to freedom. Leading a revolt, he and five other slaves killed their master and his family. Joined by about sixty other blacks, he led a general revolt.
They were paid very little if anything. The actual order could be compared to a non-profit organization. They received donations maybe even government support but didn’t distribute the money to others. The Knight Templar was started before the name was given to them. When the first crusade took Jerusalem there was a large amount of pilgrims traveling and “were often robbed or came closer to GOD then they intended“ With the need arising Hughes De Payns and Geoffrey de Saint-Omar decided to guard the most dangerous spot of all them.
No one church or group decided what books would be included in the bible, but some stronger religious groups were able to overpower the smaller sects which resulted it a Bible that reflect the views of some sects which lead to the demise of smaller sects that supported other gospels and stories that were not included in the Bible. In addition to what gospels and stories made it into the Bible the interpretation of theses texts was also determined by the group that had the most power at the time. For example, the Arians had some very unique beliefs when it comes to interpretations of Jesus Christ. Manny of the Arians’ beliefs were not accepted by the church. Today the Arians are considered to be the losers in the battle for what would constitute orthodoxy in the medieval ... ... middle of paper ... ...ect, religion, or group that has more power will write history in the way they want that event or story to be viewed in years to come.
They have become such a huge part of popular fiction that a lot of people do not know what to believe when it comes to the Knights Templar. So who were the Knights Templar and what really did happen to them. Sometime between the years 1100 and 1122 the Poor Knights (or Fellow Soldiers) of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, more commonly known as the Order of the Temple or The Knights Templar, were founded in Jerusalem by nine original Knights. These nine original Knights came together to protect pilgrims as they made their way to and from the different holy places in Outremer. Prior to their existence the Christians that visited the holy lands would be robbed and sometimes killed by the Saracen bandits that lived in and around these lands.
The story of the Knights Templar has been told many times. With exotic times and places with people of the highest ideals and bathed in mystery, a lot of the mystery of the Knights Templar comes from the lack of knowledge and writers playing around with the known facts. Templar history is really complex and not easily understood. There is mystery in how they formed, where they come from, their rise to power, why they fought in the crusade, what they did, their beliefs, how they fell from power, and where they went after their fall. The Archbishop Guillaume de Tyre said the start of the Knights Templar in 1118.
With these successes that took place, is the spread of Christianity included? Although the various Crusades had many successes and failures, the original Crusades failed to spread the message of Jesus and promote Christianity through the events of war. Before looking into the reasoning as to why the spread of Christianity did not transpire, one must look into the original nature of the Crusades along with what were the original goals that were trying to be accomplished. In 1095, Pope Urban II called together a council at Clermont. These meetings, mostly between French bishops and the pope, lasted nine days before the Pope gave a speech to the general public.
Augustine was not the most diplomatic of men, and managed to antagonize many people of power and influence in Britain, not least among them the native British churchmen, who had never been particularly eager to save the souls of the Anglo-Saxons who had brought such bitter times to their people. In their isolation, the British Church had maintained older ways of celebrated the major festivals of Christianity, and Augustine's effort to compel them to conform to modern Roman usage only angered them. When Augustine died (some time between 604 and 609 AD), then, Christianity had only a precarious hold on Anglo-Saxon England, a hold which was limited largely to a few in the aristocracy. Christianity was to become firmly established only as a result of Irish efforts, who from centers in Scotland and Northumbria made the common people Christian, and established on a firm basis the English Church. At all levels of society, belief in a god or gods was not a matter of choice, it was a matter of fact.
Though only a few dozen emperors actually sought out and tortured Christians. Christians probably faced about 130 years of persecution and 120 years of peace and toleration. Many of the imperial edict were often against church property, clergy, and Scriptures only, rather than the actually Christians themselves. The Roman Empire was apprehensive towards Christians. This stems from that the Roman religion was more of a social movement that encouraged unity and loyalty to the state.
Ever since the colonists arrived in New Haven, they encountered many difficulties that at first thwarted them from creating a thriving economy, and eventually shattered what hopes they had of creating the strong and influential haven they had imagined (10,14). Although New Haven did not develop into a prominent and successful colony, it began as a very organized and well-prepared undertaking. The settlers first came together in 1637 when John Davenport, a pastor persecuted by both the English and the Dutch due to his radical puritan beliefs, ultimately came to the conclusion that the optimal course of action would be to flee to the New World (1, conn the book pg. 47). Davenport yearned to pursue his beliefs somewhere his ideas would be accepted, and knowing that many were considering the same course of action in England, he recruited a group of Puritan families in England who were both devoutly religious, yet also were focused on making money.
Many theories were developed about how the plague was spread. Most people thought it was spread by bad smells in the air and no one attributed it to the rats. The Middle Ages was a time of serious regression and very little progress was made. This was mainly because of the influence of Christianity and the hysterical witch-hunts that led to people being too scared to oppose the rulings of the Church. Its influence was so powerful that until the time of Henry VIII the Church had more power then the King.
