Culture of St. Peter's Basilica Research Paper

… Those indulgences were instrumental in building and maintaining St. Peter's Basilica. Religion and money were closely tied during that time, just as religion and political power were closely tied. In short, Catholicism meant cash for those who were in control of it. To say that money was misused would be accurate, at least in some cases (Scotti, 58).

The creation of St. Peter's Basilica cost an enormous amount of money, and once built, the building had to be cared for and maintained. It would not have stood the test of time if that were not the case. The Basilica was an excellent representation of the Catholic religion at the time. Large and overindulgent, expensive to maintain and not necessary for true worship of a loving…. [read more]

St. Madeleine Church Roman Architecture Term Paper

… At the same time an element of realism, which parallels the first flowering of vernacular literature, came to the fore. It was expressed in terms of a direct and naive observation of certain details drawn from daily life and a heightened emphasis on emotion and fantasy. For many aspects of its rich imagery the church was dependent on the heritage of antiquity and of earlier medieval art, while the prestige of Byzantine art remained high in Western eyes. The pilgrims, clerics, natives and crusades contributed to an unprecedented expansion of the formal vocabulary through the development of closer contacts between regional cultures and distant peoples.

St. Paul, the Apostle Research Paper

… There was a great difference between the teachings of Jesus Christ and those of Paul. Whereas Jesus' word was dedicated to spreading love and affection based on the ancient tenements of Judaism, Paul was interested and insistent on changing the behaviors of all Christians. Part of his version of the religion was a walking away from the traditions of the Jewish ancestors and an embracing of completely new ideas.

During his time as a missionary, Paul travelled to far away nations such as Greece, Turkey, and Syria. Before Paul, Christianity was taught only to Jewish people and they only tried to convert those who belonged to the Jewish faith. Paul was the first missionary to try to convert people of different faiths, such as the…. [read more]


St Term Paper

… St. Benedict

Roles and Qualities of the Abbot

The Abbot bears the responsibility of not only his own actions, but also those of the persons serving under him. According to the Rule of Benedict, he is to give an account of both on the final judgment day. He therefore has a great responsibility not only towards himself, as setting an example of the perfect life in Christ to his disciples. He will be judged according to his teaching, and according to the actions of his disciples. The Rule also however acknowledges that the students may be unruly and unwilling to learn. In such a case, judgement will be negative only for the flock and not for the teacher, if the latter has adhered to the…. [read more]


St. Augustine Aurelius Augustinus Term Paper

… Unable to give up Christianity altogether, he adopted Manichaeism, a Christian heresy claiming to provide a rational Christianity on the basis of a purified text of Scripture. Nine years later, his association with the Manichees ended in disillusionment; and in Italy he discovered Neo-Platonism, a form of philosophy that seemed compatible with Christian belief. He experienced a religious conversion that led Augustine to devote his life to the pursuit of truth, which he now identified with Christianity. He returned to North Africa and helped establish a religious community dedicated to the intellectual quest for God. After combining his love of philosophy with his spiritual beliefs, Augustine is representative of both classical philisophy and Christianity.

St. Thomas Aquinas Term Paper

… He shares the opinion of St. Augustine that the human body was produced, not actually but only due to some "causal virtues" not inherent to the soul, because neither was made of any pre-existing bodily or spiritual matter "nor could be produced from any created virtue." Aquinas, therefore, suggests that, in the first six days that God created the universe, the human soul was created with the angels and later, by His own will, joined it to the service of the body. The series of events in those first six days, Aquinas says, suggests that the human soul was already existing when the human body was created.

This succession, in Aquinas' opinion, underscores the complete separation of the species and nature of the body and…. [read more]

St. Augustine Confession Essay

… St. Augustine Confession

Two wills and inner conflicts in the life of Augustine

Augustine, who eventually became the Bishop of Hippo, is considered one of the early founding fathers of the modern Catholic Church. He is a revered patriarch, and his Confessions are read as inspirational tale of a man who was once a great sinner, who became a great saint. Given his reputation, it might be assumed that Augustine had an uncomplicated view of the innate freedom of the human will. The belief that human beings possess free will to sin or to choose salvation is one of the tenants of orthodox Christian belief, as opposed to Gnostic Manichaeism. Manichaeism was the heretical credo that Augustine embraced early in his theological career, and then…. [read more]

("New Transport Era") At the time of the games, it was estimated that the BRT was transporting approximately 30% of the fans in the city of Johannesburg.

St. Patrick's Cathedral: Field Trip Essay

… For a small donation, visitors were allowed to light a candle. Although I took some photographs of the cathedral and its interior, there were some parts of the church like the gift shop where photography was not allowed. One of the areas within the Cathedral that I found most aesthetically inspiring was the baptistery. I also took some photographs of the main entrance's bronze doors. In the bronze doors' facades are figures that represent prominent people in the church's history.

Apart from the spectacular architectural design of the building (both internal and external), quite a number of other aspects of the Cathedral deserve a mention. For instance, from what I gathered, the Cathedral's great organ has more than seven thousand pipes. Further, in addition to…. [read more]


2010 World Cup South Africa Essay

Earthquake Haiti 2010 Essay

… This is actually one of the reasons for which the Dominican Republic experienced little to no damage as a result of the episode: the capital, Santo Domingo, was far from the earthquake's epicenter, and most Dominican communities that were nearer to it contained very little people.

The event's aftershocks caused even more damage as Haitians went through a series of other smaller earthquakes. There were 59 aftershocks measuring 4.5 or more on the Richter scale, with two of the most important occurring seven minutes after the mainshock (6.0 Richter) and on January 20 (5.9 Richter). In addition to its primary damage and damage caused by aftershocks, the earthquake also triggered a series of tsunamis that provoked significant damage on the Haitian coastline.

This article follows a study that attempts to link men's attitudes toward seeking career counseling and occupational aid. It does this by linking the willingness to seek help with three basic social constructs relative to masculinity. These constructs are 1) masculinity ideology, 2) conformity to masculine role norms, and 3) masculine gender role conflict (Graef, S.T.; et. al., 2010). The article and study also help to explore the links between masculine role contributions and the prediction of men's attitudes toward career counseling. These connections…. [read more]


St. Mark's Basilica - An International Treasure Term Paper

… St. Mark's Basilica - An International Treasure

It's a given fact that countless great cathedrals, monasteries, and other holy places have been built over the ages as a testament to man's devotion to God. In point of even more practical fact, that devotion was often tempered and blended with a generous portion of servitude to one's feudal lord as well, with the unspoken incentive that one got to keep one's property, position, or even one's life if one gave good service . . . and if one did not, well, things may not go as well as one would hope!
But St. Mark's Basilica in Venice, Italy, may well have an additional distinction of its own-not only as a sign of devotion to God, but…. [read more]

Psychology education today is premised on an intercession of
professional, intellectual, scientific and spiritual ideals, all of which
coalesce to denote a concentrated interest in caring for others and
improving the ability of individuals to cope with emotional, psychological
and clinical conditions impacting mental function. This coincides with the
goals of Christianity, which are to better man's lot by improving his own
ability to attend to the responsibilities, demands, pressures and
temptations of a challenging everyday life. Thus, St. Leo University
approaches its scholastic objectives with a mind toward the meeting point
of these interests, molding its students with a Christian conscience and an
orientation toward the practice that descends from American Psychology

The heathens were amazed by such a miracle, and on that day salvation came to that region.

St. Augustine and the Buddha Term Paper

… I call Thee into my soul which, by the longing Thyself inspirest into her, Thou preparest for Thee. Forsake me not now calling upon Thee, whom Thou preventedst before I called, and urgedst me with much variety of repeated calls, that I would hear Thee from afar, and be converted, and call upon Thee, that calledst after me; for Thou, Lord, blottedst out all my evil deservings

Such pleas are entirely out of keeping with the Buddhist view of the Cosmos.
