  • Innocence And Deception Of Ophelia In Shakespeare's Hamlet

    My dear Ophelia was a violet living among the bed of thorns. An image of innocence and purity in among the disease, death and deceit that runs rampant throughout the court of Denmark.

  • Anabaptism: The Condemnation Of Galileo

    The Condemnation of Galileo It is possible to say the condemnation of Galileo was something that was miscalculated. I say this because it seems as though there was really no law for what he had done at the time, but because scince and theology was not separated no one really knew what to do.
