    Heliocentrism In Religion

    • 1461 Words
    • 6 Pages

    During the early 17th century, many people were still very divided on the issues concerning the motion of the earth and the sun. The church argued for geocentrism while many other scholars and individuals argued for heliocentrism. However, this fight over the Earth’s movements was not only centered around the natural sciences, but the interpretation of the bible (Westman, 11/8). This discussion included a debate on the power and authority of the church due to the Bible influencing the view of the natural world and a large part of medieval people’s life. It was clear to members of the church, like Cardinal Bellarmine and Pope Urban VIII, that heliocentrism goes against the Scriptures and thus God’s word, but people like Galileo and Foscarini…

    own exile from God. Whereas Dante the pilgrim, and by extension Dante the author, has the opportunity to repent and repel the sins that lead a soul to Hell, those already within Hell become the definition of hopelessness. Dante’s introduction to the hopelessness that accompanies exile began sometime in 1301 as he accompanied an embassy sent by the Florentine government, primarily led by the “White” Guelphs, to appeal to Pope Boniface VIII to mediate the strife between the two factions.

    There are no political wars because God had blessed the land. This leads people to believe that their state of peace is governed by God himself and by kings. A lot of the key roles in politics were priests and Roman emperors were gods themselves. There is no clear separation of religion and politics. Another example of religion being an integral part of politics is when Alexios I Komnenos, the Byzantine emperor, asked the pope, Urban II, to help conquer Asia Minor back from the Turks.

    The Holy Catholic Church

    • 1922 Words
    • 8 Pages

    From humble beginnings to an oppressive doctrine, the Holy Catholic Church truly underwent change throughout the course of Medieval history. Seen in these two letters, Clericis Laicos and Unam Sanctam, are what would seem to be the culmination of all this history: the responses of Pope Boniface VIII to the continued pressures of secular rule and its jurisdiction in relation to the Church and its functioning.
