    741 words
    Flannery O'Connor was born in Savannah Georgia, on March 25, 1925. In her works she portrays the southern character and atmosphere.

Lebanon lies on the eastern shore of the Medi...

  • Grand Inquisitor In Dostoevsky's Story
    2,260 words
    As described in The Grand Inquisitor by Dostoevsky The writings of Fyodor Dostoevsky and Helen Ellerbe show substantial evidence that the orthodox Christians did in fact steal from humanity the divine freedom it was promised by Jesus Christ. This thesis is supported in Dostoevsky's "The Grand Inquisitor" from his book The Brothers Karamazov. The dark side of Christian history by Helen Ellerbe also supports this theory. The Inquisition itself shows credibility to the theory that orthodox Christia...
  • Call Popular Occultism
    3,585 words
    In the period of history in which we are living, there is a very strong element of revolt. Revolt against all established institutions. This is good, as those established institutions are, for the most part, extremely oppressive of human personal liberty, and human freedom of thought. People are rightly perceiving all forms of government as basically more interested in their own power and profit than they are in the people they supposedly represent. People are tired of having their own futures a...

  • Used Christianity In A Bad Way
    1,010 words
    In my essay I compare and contrast the different ideas of de Vaca and Handsome Lake about Christianity. Both of them used Christianity in their writings as an element, however they had different viewpoints on it. De Vaca used it to treat people in a bad way like he sees them as miserable people, but Handsome Lake used it to treat people (Indians) in a better way. And I will try to prove these things in my essay. De Vaca behaved toward Indians very badly. When we read his text about Relation of A...
  • Traditional Roman Gods For Christianity
    388 words
    By the time Constantine declared himself a Christian in 313 CE, almost half of the Roman population had abandoned the traditional Roman gods for Christianity (Galloway 4).
