    right from the early days of Christianity, that the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary completed God’s work in her since it was not fitting that the flesh that had given life to God himself should ever undergo corruption. The virgin whose life began fully in grace, as was hailed by heaven “full of grace, the Lord is with you,” has to be ended fittingly by assuming into heaven. Dogma of the Catholic Church The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary has been announced as a doctrine of the Roman Catholic

    The Assumption of the Virgin As I walked through the halls of the Art institute, I saw many paintings and sculptures. One painting that stood out the most was called, “The Assumption of the Virgin,” by El Greco. As I stood in front this huge painting I was trying to figure out what was going on in the painting. Right away I could tell that oil was used to paint this portrait because there was a shine on the painting. I refused to read the description of the painting until I came to a conclusion.

    Our Moving Fate: A Study of El Greco’s Assumption of the Virgin El Greco painted his “Assumption of the Virgin” in 1577 for the convent of Santo Domingo el Antiguo in Toledo, Spain. Born in Greece as Domenikos Theotocopoulos, (his nickname translates from Spanish into “The Greek”), El Greco was the top artist of the Spanish School, and was commissioned to paint “Assumption” to adorn the convent’s altar. The painting is a daunting size—over six feet wide and twice as tall—surrounded by a wooden

    Bloody Mary I remember enacting an urban ritual with my friends back in middle school. Giggling and squealing, running in and out of the bathroom, not really believing but still terrified by the possibilities. It was less a story with a moral than it was just a sleepover prank. Needless to say I wasn’t surprised that when I asked a roommate to relate an urban legend to me over lunch one day that she chose that of “Bloody Mary." The storyteller is a 20 year old woman studying psychology at the

    Mary, Queen of Heaven, by the Master of the Saint Lucy Legend, is a striking example of Marian art. The work, when first viewed, might seem straightforward-a typical, albeit large, representation of the Virgin Mary's ascension to heaven- an event represented countless times in religious art. However, this is no ordinary Christian painting. Every inch contains symbolism, intricate details, movement, or religious iconography. Rather than simply being a piece to be viewed, Mary, Queen of Heaven offers

    Virgin Suicides” by Jeffrey Eugenides one of the archetypes that we see play out throughout the novel is the one of The Virgin Mary.

    When Al Capone was born on January 17, 1899, nobody thought he would grow up to be one of the most notorious mobsters in all of crime history. Not many assumptions are made towards newborn babies, but the parenting that lies ahead determines its place in society. There are also many brilliant minds that grew up to be known for hard work and dedication. For example, the famous Steve Jobs was born an unknown man, but made himself known with the company Apple. His parents always supported his adventures

    What a sensation was made about the Sensation exhibition in the Brooklyn Museum of Art. The focus of Mayor Giuliani’s outcry was the piece “The Holy Virgin Mary” by Chris Ofili. Funny, he didn’t give attention to some of the other outrageous works including the pubescent female mannequins studded with erect penises, vaginas, and anuses, fused together in various postures of sexual coupling, or the portrait of a child molester and murder made from what appears like child hand prints or bisected animals

    lacking in emotional depth. I am proud to write in defense of a group that predates and outlasts all other professional analysts of the human condition-creators of art. Chris Ofili is one member of this oft-abused group. His 1996 work,The Holy Virgin Mary, depicts the classic Christian icon with a nonrealistic black face above swirling, sequined green and blue patterns and one exposed breast composed of dried elephant dung. Cutouts of photographs of women's buttocks and genitals dot the background of

    claim stating the correct uses of tobacco settlement money. The money should be spent on smoking related health care and prevention, according to the claim. In order to support his claim the writer resorts mostly to using assumptions. The title of the article gives the first assumption made by the writer. The catch phrase used for the title, "The Bottom Line", is immediately at work trying to convince the reader that whatever the content of the article, it is the truth.

    Dictionary an assumption is a belief that something is true or a fact or statement that is taken for granted. Susan Glaspell wrote "Trifles" to demonstrate the male assumption that women are insignificant members in a male dominated society. Because the men underestimate them, the women are able to prove they are not insignificant. The improper assumptions by men toward women can have dire consequences, as demonstrated in Glaspell's world. Combating these narcissistic assumptions displayed by

One of the assumptions Statsky makes is that, “One readily understandable danger of overly competitive sports is that they entice children into physical actions that are bad for growing bodies” (627). This statement rests on the assumption that children would not perform any “physical actions that are bad for growing bodies” (Statsky 627) without organized competitive sports

    Trifles, by Susan Glaspell, the male characters make several assumptions concerning the female characters. These assumptions deal with the way in which the male characters see the female characters, on a purely stereotypical, gender-related level. The stereotypical assumptions made are those of the women being concerned only with trifling things, loyalty to the feminine gender, and of women being subservient to their spouses. The first assumption, women being only concerned with trifling things, is seen

    Most people may not know who Chris Ofili is, but chances are that many of them know one of his works, his painting “The Holy Virgin Mary”, displayed at the Brooklyn Museum of Art’s “Sensation” exhibition in 1999. The painting was extremely controversial because of Mary’s exposed breast being made of elephant dung and because of the porno cutouts surrounding Mary. Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and others, saying that such works were not appropriate for public display, immediately attacked the painting

    shadows; so depart” Poverty is defined with the word destitution. Destitution, however, isn’t bound to just one definition. The word means to have little or nothing, but also is abandoned and left helpless. With these definitions, we can make an assumption that it is tied to a sense of lack, something that no longer exists, or something that is missing. In Macbeth, Macbeth illustrates an emotional and ethical poverty due to his constant curiosity or fear of his own future. In the beginning of Macbeth
