  • Young Middle Class Women The Clerical Profession
    1,890 words
    The Role of Women in Victorian England The evolving role of women in Victorian England is the main subject of George Gissing's The Odd Women.

  • Dignity Of Celibacy And Marriage Most Catholics
    2,491 words
    Fundamentalist attacks on priestly celibacy come in a number of different forms-not all compatible with one another. There is almost no other subject about which so many different confusions exist. The first and most basic confusion is thinking of priestly celibacy as a dogma or doctrine-a central and irreformable part of the faith, believed by Catholics to come from Jesus and the apostles. Thus some Fundamentalists make a great deal of a biblical reference to Peter's mother-in-law (Mark 1: 30),...

(Schulz, 1951; 103) This is quite a simplistic view, as there were many differing forms of marriage in Rome, from the arranged marriages of the elite to the unions of slaves and soldiers. As we shall see, the Romans' actual expectations of married life and the gains they envision...

    2,232 words
    English - Pride and Prejudice Social and Historical context of the Novel The social context in which Jane Austen's novel, Pride and Prejudice operates, is one of firm class divisions, formality, and extreme importance placed on knowing what was considered proper behaviour.
