17+ documents containing “becket”.
The king proves his irresponsibility by forgiving ecket and thus brings England once again in danger of being controlled by the clergy. The final scenes show how ecket dies while protecting his beliefs while the king is ravaged by his own actions and illogically punishes ecket's killers for the murder Henry II indirectly ordered.
It is difficult to determine if ecket actually got God's honor exactly as he expected it to. The fact that he died as a member of the church nonetheless turns him into a martyr, given that he could have prevented this by respecting Henry II's requirements. ecket obviously longed for the honor of God, but his love was not necessarily one related to achievement. As a member of the church he learnt that one should love God's honor and that he or she has to respect the divine no matter the consequences.

As long as they wait fo Godot they ae awae of thei being. Thee is no moe talk of "cogito ego sum" -- I thing theefoe I exist, since the thinking is not helping one anymoe, but thee is talk of "waiting." The autho may suggest that the saying could be tuned into: "I wait fo Godot, theefoe I am."
Godot may be anothe type of God, a meciless, cuel God, moe like the God of the Old Testament than the God evealed in the fou Gospels of the New Testament. The logic behind this conclusion may be that only a meciless God who likes to punish his childen can stay hidden and etenally bound human beings with a message of his aival instead of actually eve aiving.

references in the play that could support such a conclusion. At some point, when Estragon claims his name was Adam, Lucky is all of a sudden reminded that he wanted to tell them about real character of the night in those parts, which could mean anything:
"POZZO: Ah yes! The night. (He raises his head.) (All look at the sky except Lucky who is dozing off again. Pozzo jerks the rope.) What is there so extraordinary about it? Qua sky. It is pale and luminous like any sky at this hour of the day. (Pause.) in these latitudes. (Pause.) & #8230;but -- (hand raised in admonition) -- but behind this veil of gentleness and peace, night is charging (vibrantly) and will burst upon us (snaps his fingers) pop! like that! (his inspiration leaves him) just when we least expect it. (Silence. Gloomily.) That's how it is on this bitch of an earth" (Wating for Godot)
The reference to "night" and Adam suggests that it could be about the beginning as well as it may be about the end of the world. God is expected to be related to both ends and Adam is the tie between him and humanity.
Through his absence though, Godot, this maybe God, is saying more than the main and secondary characters are saying or showing in the play. He sends a messenger, a boy, his goat herder, to bring a message that he will come and even lets them know a day. But since it could be any Tuesday of any future week, the news does not bring any relief from the pain of waiting. Ultimatelly, it is the very waiting and only this that makes sense in the existence of Vladimir and Estragon. While everything else, even Godot's existence is susceptible of being doubted, the waiting is real, a certainty. As long as they wait for Godot they are aware of their being. There is no more talk of "cogito ergo sum" -- I thing therefore I exist, since the thinking is not helping one anymore, but there is talk of "waiting." The author may suggest that the saying could be turned into: "I wait for Godot, therefore I am."
Godot may be another type of God, a merciless, cruel God, more like the God of the Old Testament than the God revealed in the four Gospels of the New Testament. The logic behind this conclusion may be that only a merciless God who likes to punish his children can stay hidden and eternally bound human beings with a message of his arrival instead of actually ever arriving.
Next, the board members. The organization would be wise to directly approach a business leader in the community, someone with a charitable reputation who has the time and inclination to participate. Also, a business owner in the eyeglasses field would be perfect for a second board member. Group members can also be considered. Once the new three-member board has its first meeting, the articles of incorporation and bylaws can be worked out. The articles of incorporation are not difficult (viewing other nonprofits' articles can lead the way to preparing EP's articles), and bylaws can be paraphrased from other nonprofits' bylaws, and edited to specifically address EP's mission statement.
A nonprofit attorney must be brought into the meeting to review the bylaws, to help complete the tax-exempt status paperwork, and to oversee the preliminary steps that EP needs to take to become bona fide nonprofit. Once the articles of incorporation have been….

As the light changes during the course of a day, the colors change as well; reds and yellows get more brilliant at noon, blues become brilliant as the light fades in the afternoon. All the while, the pictures tell important stories or symbolize truths. Light radiating through glass adds life, beauty, is transcendent, and spiritual connections become apparent.
The above rather elaborate description is cited at length in order to provide insight into the way that stained glass windows and ornamentation can evoke a spiritual and 'transcendent' quality that is particularly in keeping with a religious context such as a church. As referred to in the previous section, the use of stained glass is also strongly related to the Christian symbolism of light. As Web ( 2007) states, "A light philosophy ("God is light") was expressed, and it was thought that light reflected on earth is the closest we can….

This is at odds with his previous rationalization, but the circumstances are different. He is faced with death, and his talk of martyrdom at this point is a threat to the knights.
Rationalizing can be done to justify any action. The knights, too, rationalize their actions on behalf of the king. Each actor feels that the circumstances fully justify their actions at each time and place. The question of right vs. wrong is not one that can be answered with rationalizations, as the conflicting rationalizations of the actors in this play demonstrate. Rationalizing demonstrates that ethics and morals are not absolute; they are in the eye of the beholder. The worth of one's actions are not measured by one's ability to justify those actions to others -- rationalizing is an empty activity that neither adds nor removes moral and ethical value from your deeds and speech..
The setting up the king's supremacy instead of the usurpations of the papacy, and the rooting out the monastic state in England, considering the wealth, the numbers, and the zeal of the monks and friars in all the parts of the kingdom, as it was a very bold undertaking, so it was executed with great method, and performed in so short a time, and with so few of the convulsions that might have been expected, that all this shews what a master he was, that could bring such a design to be finished in so few years, with so little trouble or danger (Slavin, 19)."

This essence is based on his belief that free will an the freedom of choice which is the exercise of free will are rooted in "uprightness":
If freedom-of-choice had not been given to rational nature in order for it to keep uprightness-of-will for the same of this uprightness itself, then freedom would not have been conducive to justice, since it is evident that justice is uprightness-of-will for the sake of this uprightness itself. (Anselm 110)
It appears that Anselm is ultimately equating free will with uprightness-of-will, for he argues that there is nothing -- even God -- which can separate the will from its essential uprightness:
Indeed, although He can reduce to nothing an entire substance which He has created from nothing, He is not able to separate uprightness from a will which has it... If God were to remove (the oft-mentioned) uprightness from someone, he would not will him to will….

Many critics consider the name Godot to be a hidden name for God. Godot in the end is a paradox. The dramatist described in his play the person at the end of the World War II. It is a person who can be characterized as master and victim of will. The characters have a will but their wishes destroy them. The characters are waiting for someone or something to save them.
From the aesthetic point-of-view the postmodernism movement pleads for an anti-narrative structure of the work. Tarantino's film, "Pulp Fiction," doesn't have a classic plot. Two stories that seem unrelated come together in a "non linear plot." The first story is about two thieves, Honey unny and Pumpkin who decide to rob a restaurant, and the second story of two hit men working for mob, named Vincent and Jules.

In what concerns economy and taxation, Margaret Thatcher succeeded in signficicantly assisting the recovery of the ritish economy, and, by 1983, the country experienced economic growth and inflation and mortgage rates were at their lowest levels since 1970. However, the international public remembers her not for more than the things she has done to improve the ritish economy, as her 1976 speech about the Soviet Union impressed people everywhere. This particular speech gained her the nickname "Iron Lady" and she even came to relate to the name a few months after the incident.
The nickname suited Margaret Thatcher very well, given that whatever she did, she did it with an iron fist. Although she was extremely elegant and very candid, all her political actions were firm and strong. Moreover, she demonstrated her strength of mind consequent to the 1984 incident, when an Irish Republican Army bomb exploded in the hotel where….
Myth, Literature, and the African World
The book Myth, Literature, and the African World, was published in 1976, twenty years before the author, Wole Soyinka, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
In his Preface, he clearly wants to convey that African academia has created a kind of "intellectual bondage and self-betrayal" by not facing up to truths about the fact that African literature must not be merely "an appendage of English literature." This was written twenty-eight years ago, of course, and because the instructions ask that "only this reference" be used, one cannot know if indeed African universities now have a section for "Comparative Literature" -- which would presumably allow for the inclusion of literature about Africa, by Africans. And that literature would, hopefully, be reflective of what African cultures were like during the continent was dominated by European colonial powers -- something that Soyinka clearly would like (at the time….
" (Gibbs 226) Alvardo de Campos is a naval engineer by profession and while his earlier writings are positive, his work develops characteristics of existential angst. Furthermore, what is intriguing is that all of these fictive authors created by Pessoa interact with one another and even translate each other's works. (Gibbs 226)
One critic notes that "Fernando Pessoa invented at least 72 fictive identities. "His jostling aliases...expressed his belief that the individual subject -- the core of European thought -- is an illusion." (Gray 52) This view goes to the heart of the matter, as will be discussed in the following sections of this paper; namely that the creation of these fictive identities emphasizes and highlights the modern crisis of identity and the existential and postmodern view that the self as a coherent and continuous entity is an illusion. The following extract emphasizes this central point and also allows for reflection….

Samuel Johnson's "The Vanity of Human ishes"
In this poem, the author demonstrates to the audience the reality of struggle in life. The author, just like, he mentions in the poem's title demonstrates how human wishes are, in many cases egoistic and useless. According to Meyers (p 1), Johnson had his reflection long years of human struggle, unavoidable fates, and theerroneous hopes. The author demonstrates some of the common situations that ordinary human being experience under the authority of certain political powers, which seem to have a hand in the sealing of their destinies. The author, in exploring this demonstrates how cruel, humiliating, and unwarranted such treatments are. The actions that the persona witnesses in the society make life to him more of a tragedy than anything else does. He in fact states that the weight….

Jesus' Teachings, Prayer, & Christian Life
"He (Jesus) Took the Bread. Giving Thanks Broke it. And gave it to his Disciples, saying, 'This is my Body, which is given to you.'" At Elevation time, during Catholic Mass, the priest establishes a mandate for Christian Living. Historically, at the Last Supper, Christ used bread and wine as a supreme metaphor for the rest of our lives. Jesus was in turmoil. He was aware of what was about to befall him -- namely, suffering and death. This was the last major lesson he would teach before his arrest following Judas' betrayal. Eschatologically speaking, the above set the stage for the Christian ministry of the apostles, evangelists and priests. Indeed, every Christian is called to give of him or herself for the Glory of God and the Glory of Mankind. The message at the Last Supper was powerful. People have put themselves through unimaginable….
As the Archbishop of Canterbury during the tumultuous reign of Henry VIII, Thomas Cranmer was in an extraordinary position to effect changes in England's political and religious direction. Through his writings, Cranmer laid the foundations for establishing the Church of England and moved England into the path of the growing European Reformation Movement.
By facilitating the numerous divorces of Henry VIII, he helped to weaken the authority of the Pope in England and contributed to the greater hold of the King.
This paper examines the effects of Cranmer's developing theology on the history of Tudor England. The first part of the paper looks at the role Cranmer played in justifying the theological bases of Henry VIII's numerous divorces. The next part then examines Cranmer's religious convictions, as enshrined in the Ten Articles and later, in the two versions of the Book of Common Prayer.
In the last section, the paper evaluates Cranmer's….

From the perspective of pure plot, David Mamet's 1974 play, Sexual Perversity in Chicago, is not exactly easy to summarize, although this difficulty is formally built in to the play, itself, which quite consciously rejects a standard narrative flow from one event to another for a cut-up collagistic style that rapidly jumps between scenes and events. Indeed, this sort of experimentation is hardly new in creative works, and was, in fact, a mainstay of modernist literature at the early part of the 20th century, but it can indeed still be jarring in the realm of theater, where one often tends to expect an emphasis on plot and narrative vision. Mamet's play, on the other hand, prefers to eschew these things in order to suggest something like the fractured nature of our own existences, and, rather than letting the plot hold the interest of the viewers, he realizes on his….
