To what extent do you think St. Cyprian was effective in his efforts to bring inherited christian teachings to bear on the unprecedented conditions he and his followers faced

To what extent do you think St. Cyprian was effective in his efforts to bring inherited christian teachings to bear on the unprecedented conditions he and his followers faced

St. Cyprian, bishop of Carthage, was an outspoken proponent of Christianity during the early and middle decades of the third century C.E. When epidemic disease struck the Roman Empire in 251 C.E., Imperial authorities blamed the outbreak on Christians who refused to honor pagen gods. Cyprian refuted that charge in his treatise On Mortality, which described the symptoms of epidemic disease and reflected on its significance for the Christian community.

It serves as validation of the [Christian] faith when the bowels loosen and drain the body’s strength, when fever fenerated in bone marrow causes sores to break out in the throat, when continuous vomiting rolls the intestines, when blood-shot eyes burn, when the feet or other bodily parts are amputated becasue of infection by putrefying disease, when through weakness caused by injuries to the body either mobility is impeded, or hearing is impaired, or sight is obscured. It requires enormous greatness of heart to struggle with resolute mind against so many onslaughts of destruction and death. It requires great loftiness to stand firm amidst the ruins of the human race, not concede defeat with those who have no hope in God, but rather to rejoice and embrace the gift of the times. With Christ as our judge, we should receive this gift as the reward of his faith, as we vigorously affirm our faith and, having suffered, advance toward Christ by Christ’s narrow path…

Many of us [Christians] are dying in this epidemic – that is, many of use are being liberated from the world. The epidemic is a pestilence for the Jews and the pagans and the enemies of Christ, but for the servants of God it is a welcome event. True, with out discrimination, the just are dying alongside the unjust, buy you should not imagine that the evil and the good face a common destruction. The just are called to refreshment, while the unjust are herded off to punishment: the faithful receive protection, while the faithless receive retribution. We are unseeing and ungrateful for devine favors, beloved brethern, and we do not recognize what is granted to us…

How suitable and essential is it that this plague and pestilence, which seems so terrible and ferocious, probes the justice of every individual and examines the minds of the human rate to determine whether the healthy care for the ill, whether relatives diligently love their kin, whether masters show mercy to their languishing slaves, whether physicians do not abandon those seeking their aid, whether the ferocious diminsh their violence, whether the greedy in the fear of death extinguish the raging flames of their instatiable avarice, whether the proud bend their necks, whether the shameless mitigate their audacity, whether the rich will loosen their purse strings and give something to others as their loved ones perish all around them and as they are about to die without heirs.

 

DISCUSSION QUESTION: To what extent do you think St. Cyprian was effective in his efforts to bring inherited Christian teachings to bear on the unprecedented conditions he and his followers faced?

St. Cyprian of Catharge is a bishop who is often called the African Pope. His martyrdom justified his status and showed his holiness through the judgments of the church. His assertions strongly propose that he is conscious that he is in a situation that he is being slated for intensifying and spreading the factional partition through rigorist inflexibility by his adversaries in Rome. He knew that the advertising line” Feticissimus” together with his troupe would be vending in Rome.

Why does Churchill believe an invasion of British soil is not likely to occur in the near future?

A. because the enemy did not have a strong enough air force.

B. because the enemy would have to cross the heavily see to get there.

C. beauce the enemy did not have enough foot soldiers to invade by ground

D. because the enemy would have to get past the French army.

 

Churchill believes that an invasion of British soil is not likely to occur in the near future because the enemy would have to cross the heavily guarded sea to get there.

In his famous speech, “Their finest hour”, given on 1940, Churchill said that for the Germans to cross the English Channel, they would need to have a large armada, that would be “intercepted long before it reaches the coast”. There would be many obstacles in the way of an invading Navy, such as minefields, air bombings and the British Navy itself.

Answer 1

Answers:

1. an artistic movement that emphasized  the emotional rather than the rational  side of humans  = ROMANTICISM

2. a movement in which philosophers developed  ideas of democratic principles and basic  human rights  = ENLIGHTENMENT

3.an ideology that included the rights to liberty,  equality, and property for all people and the  separation of different branches of government  = LIBERALISM

4.an ideology that believed that a nation  should be based on people’s shared  culture, language, or background = NATIONALISM

Explanation:

The Enlightenment was an 18th century philosophical movement that urged people to use their reason to make life and society better. “Dare to know!  Have the courage to use your intelligence!” was how one Enlightenment thinker (Immanuel Kant) summed up what they meant by “enlightenment.”  One area where they applied reasoning and investigation to seek solutions was in regard to the organization of politics.  The rights of people to assemble for political discourse, as well as the rights of people to participate in the rule (governing) of their own societies were outgrowths of the Enlightenment emphasis.  Liberalism, as described above, was a 19th century result of the 18th century ideas of Enlightenment.

Romanticism (another 19th century movement) was something of a reaction against science and reasoning going too far (in the view of some),  taking over too much of a role in society.  Thus the Romantic emphasis on emotions more than on reason.

Nationalism also was a major movement in the 19th century, and sometimes was supported by Romanticism.  Examples of that would be Richard Wagner’s opera The Valkyrie, which dramatized old German national myths, or the novel Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott, which dramatized medieval legends of England.
