Roman Catholic Church. It would be a major error. Roman Catholics believe their church represents the earthly manifestation of the will Christ has for us on Earth. Nowadays, more than we ever have, we require people who have a understanding of the world and who have the analytical and critical thinking ability to distinguish reality from fiction.

Their belief is that Pope Francis is able to trace his power to Peter the one of Jesus’ disciples. Understanding two areas that are part of the liberal arts are highly beneficial in this regard that is, foreign languages and historical. It was believed by them in it was the Bible was the oldest text on earth and it was a reference to a righteous life that could take you to Heaven. It’s not difficult to argue that being able to speak a foreign language and understanding of different cultures are first steps to becoming an international citizen. This was a more common belief within Western Europe.

Not only is mastering a foreign language necessary and necessary, but I believe that one must also learn an unfamiliar culture in the language of the destination. In this piece, we’ll be focusing upon specifically the Roman Catholic Church. Any translation, however well-crafted is able to give the exact meaning of the original as the nature of the language’s words is determined by the culture it’s derived from. 2. In order to communicate in another language, you must have the ability to convey the concepts and traditions of a culture that is different from our own and comprehend how it is constructed and perceives the world. This chart shows the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church. To achieve this, you must learn to think in a different way. The role played by Christianity and its role in Medieval Europe.

Examining the cultural differences of different cultures will lead to an examination of the past. Christianity directly has influenced life of Europeans all the way from the King all the way to the commoner. Examining the past can help us to better understand our present and our future even if it’s impossible to conduct preventive historical research. We’ll explore Christian impact on Ruler’s and Commoner’s levels. In the months leading up to the elections, participants who were in my World War II class easily made connections between our times and the 1930s of France that was a time when economic problems led to development of xenophobia, anti-immigrant views and anti-Semitism. Commoners lived their lives around the Church, and the church’s burden was to be shared by the ordinary. We also discussed rising, during the following the devastating French loss in World War II, of Marshal Philippe Petain, an authoritarian charismatic and charismatic figure who promised his fellow French that he would be the only one to solve all their problems.

Churches weren’t tax-paying and weren’t supported from the kingdom. He also famously stated that he would offer to the French his "gift of his own person." However, instead being able to "saving France," he as well as his government continued to join forces with the Nazis and led to the most dark period in recent French history. They depended on their members to pay 10 percent of their income for the benefit of the church.

In our country in the United States, one of the key lessons from our election of the last few days is the importance of understanding the past and its relevance to the civic culture. Churches also charged for weddings, baptisms and other religious services. Even a brief understanding of the history of slavery will easily make one forget the questionable assertions made by president contender Donald Trump that African-Americans in this country are in fact worse off than they’ve ever been. The celebrations around Holy Days, like Easter or Candlemas, were also financed by ordinary people. Knowing is the power. While nobles contributed to church however they were not able to bear the whole cost of supporting these events.

It helps us to dispel falsifications, such as those propagated by leaders. They also paid for indulgences which led to dispute. Learning about history will not only teach learners about past events. it requires students to consider their thoughts, to analyze large quantities of information , and to interpret conflicting views. An indulgence was a gift bought by the Catholic Church that could reduce the duration of Purgatory. History requires a thorough study of papers.

As per the Catholic doctrine, once someone dies in the grave, they go to Purgatory. In my classes in history students look at primary source documents and secondary works written by historians and examine their bias. They have to wait at Purgatory for a set period as determined by the crimes they had committed in their time of life. Through the analysis of rhetorical strategies, we determine not just which elements are included but also which important aspects are not in the text. Then , they went to Heaven through indulgences, which allowed them to skip the waiting period in Purgatory. This helps students be aware of silences in the history and the rationale behind these silences.

Catholic Heretical Sects: We can witness the effectiveness of this approach through the most important lecture that was given to Sorbonne students in 1882. Catholics believe that certain communities who were practicing religions that did not conform to their understanding of the Bible were in error. In the lecture, French historian Ernest Renan described the essential components in the French nation as having a common desire to live as a unit against the German notion of shared "blood" and the German language. These groups were known as Heretical Sects, and many were followers of a different type of Christianity. Although the speech, delivered after the end during the Franco-Prussian War, condemned Germany for its repressive annexation of the German-dialect and German-speaking provinces Alsace and Lorraine but nowhere in the speech do word German nor Germany appear. Let’s examine the Beguines.

This omission was in part an attempt at reducing and diminishing the legitimacy of German power. Their version of Catholicism was not much different from that of their predecessors however it was thought to be a heretical religion. Renan’s speech Renan declared that the common language should not be considered a part of national identity, in order to be more critical of the Germans. Beguines. Yet, he tried to be both sides without mentioning that, at the time, France was itself imposing the French school curriculum in order to eradicate local dialects and encourage the unity of the nation. Women who led their lives for other people.


The analysis of this kind allows students to comprehend the biases that underlie Renan’s ideas, and to evaluate the credibility of his assertions and place his writing in the period of his day. Their communities were scattered, and in disarray till the beginning of the 13th century, which is when their leader, the French King Louis IX built them beguinages. Students studying history also look at how historians’ biases affect them themselves to understand the ways historians construct narratives of the past.

Beguinages were governed by different rules according to their location. This fact that the narratives they create can be contradictory doesn’t suggest that all truth is necessarily true or that the universal truth doesn’t exist. Contrary to Nuns they could join or leave the Beguinages as they wanted.
