anyone who joins these revolts is also under the power of the devil (doc. 7). During this time many noblemen would join the peasants because they could not handle the peasants themselves because there were too many of them so some nobles would join the peasants fight (doc. 10). The nobles would join because the peasant revolts were very violent and there were a lot of them (doc. 11). According to Pastor Johann Herolt the peasants scaled the walls of the castle, captured the countess and her children, plundered the castle, and then appeared before the town (doc. 5). This shows how savage the peasants were during these revolts. There could be some slight exaggeration in this though because of the fact that Herolt was a pastor. According to Thomas Muntzer…
medieval Church, focus on sola scriptura, and provide education so the individual can experience God for himself. I would have to say that all in all Martin Luther was a fairly moderate reformer. Luther had a positive impact on changing the landscape of European society he was responsible for the division of provinces in Germany which led to enlightened thinkers understanding scripture for themselves.

Each authors address the issue of presentism differently. Each authors talks about past tens and present by presenting the Thomas Jefferson. For example, the first author Douglas Wilson understands the time presentism (historical condition).

might not have catered to what the government wanted, they were revolutionary nonetheless. His first idea of human nature was that at birth all humans are at a blank state, not yet tainted by outside opinions. Locke believed that the natural human state was one of perfect freedom and goodwill. He preferred limited or constitutional monarchy as opposed to absolute monarchy and thought that there was a social contract between a government and its people. This contract states that the government’s…
Britain and France were at war, both sides were looking for allies, Britain was America’s biggest trading partner, but the French helped the Americans in the war, the problem was clear, whose side should the United States take, or if they should even take sides at all?
