1) The Renaissance occurred in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries, 1300-1600. The Renaissance happened in the middle ages. It began in Italy, then spread all around Europe, and stopped around 1700.


2) Martin Luther (November 10, 1483–February 18, 1546) was a German monk, theologian, university professor and church reformer whose ideas inspired the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization. Luther's theology challenged the authority of the papacy by holding that the Bible is the only infallible source of religious authority and that all baptized Christians under Jesus are a spiritual priesthood. According to Luther, salvation was a free gift of God, received only by true repentance and faith in Jesus as the Messiah, a faith given by God and unmediated by the church. His translation of the Bible into the vernacular, making it more accessible to ordinary people, had a tremendous political impact on the church and on German culture. Much scholarly debate has concentrated on Luther's writings about the Jews. His statements that Jews' homes should be destroyed, their synagogues burned, money confiscated and liberty curtailed were revived and used in propaganda by the Nazis in 1933–45. As a result of this and his revolutionary theological views, his legacy remains controversial.

Terrific answer, may use as a model!

3) In the arts, Baroque is both a period and the style that dominated it. The Baroque style used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, oil painting, literature, and music. The style started around 1600 in Rome, Italy and spread to most of Europe. In music, the Baroque applies to the final period of dominance of imitative counterpoint, where different voices and instruments echo each other but at different pitches, sometimes inverting the echo, and even reversing thematic material.

Superb, will probably use this as a model.

4) The history of English consists of the three periods: Old, Middle, and Modern English. Old English came from the German language in the late 400’s. As soon as Old English was improved, Middle English evolved and lasted until 1500. From 1500 on, Middle English became Modern.

Very good.

5) The History of Korean Dynasties extends as far back as 2,333 BC, when legend has it that the Gojoseon Dynasty was founded by Dangun Wanggeom who is considered the founder of Korea. According to Myth, the Lord of Heaven�s son and father of Dangun, Hwanung, longed to live on earth among the people and descended at the famous site of Baekdu Mountain (Tian Chi in Chinese). Here, today a boundary point between China and North Korea, the long line of dynasties and kingdoms of Korea finds its birth. Considering the length of each dynastic rule, considerably few have ruled the land of Korea in this extensive period of time. Nevertheless, each kingdom has an intriguing story full of internal strife and troubles from abroad. Point your cursor over any of the kingdoms below to read its story.

Excellent, but I don't think the cursor instruction at the end works.

6) Asia was not Christianized, thus the reason the Renaissance occurred in Europe and not Asia. Not to mention Asia was experiencing conflict during that time, while Europe had conflicts before the Renaissance occured.

Right. ("occurred", not "occured").

7) Machiavelli laid the foundation for the works of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau: he was the first one who thought that the political philosophy of the ancient Greeks was too "idealist". But John Locke is an example of “machiavellian.” John Locke was an Oxford scholar, medical researcher and physician, political operative, economist and idealogue for a revolutionary movement, as well as being one of the great philosophers of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century. Earlier writers such as Chillingworth had argued that human understanding was limited, Locke tries to determine what those limits are. We can, he thinks, know with certainty that God exists. We can also know about morality with the same precision we know about mathematics, because we are the creators of moral and political ideas.

Great insights about Locke, but I wouldn't call him "Machiavellian". (Note: "ideologue", not "idealogue").

H3) The Protestant Reformation was a reform movement in Europe that began in 1517, though its roots lie further back in time. It began with Martin Luther and may be considered to have ended with the Peace of Westphalia in 1648. The movement began as an attempt to reform the Catholic Church. Many western Catholics were troubled by what they saw as false doctrines and malpractices within the Church, particularly involving the teaching and sale of indulgences. Another major contention was the practice of buying and selling church positions (simony) and what was seen at the time as considerable corruption within the Church's hierarchy.

Good analysis.

H6) Like I stated in the previous homework, chivalry is the most attractive quality a guy can have, in my opinion. There’s nothing more comforting than knowing your boyfriend won’t cease to impress your parents, grandparents, teachers or any other adult elders. Chivalry makes a guy stand out, and that’s a good thing; however, peers have turned their views of chivalry into negative opinions. Many think chivalry leaves men wide open to be exploited or taken advantage of by women and feminists. Some believe that everyone is equal, and as equal partners in relationships, we should treat each other the same. If men can hold the door open, so can woman. Many feminists insist that chivalry makes a woman appear weak, as if she can’t take care of herself. I strongly disagree with all of these opinions. Chivalry is basic politeness and manners. Politeness and manners leave a person looking very respectable. I love chivalry, and I totally respect any guy who gives it.

Superb answer! May use this as a model.

H7) In my honest opinion, I had never heard about Dante and his work about Hell. It intrigued me on what his opinion and view of hell was like. Hell is being consumed with the desire to be with God in the full knowledge that it cannot ever be, because of the state of your soul. It is a form of eternal frustration that is so unbearable that it is compared to being immersed in unquenchable earthly fire without ever be consumed. Some artists and writers have illustrated it allegorically as best they could but no horror known to man can compare. Matthew 5:22 says, “…but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of the fire of hell.” Most Christians, including myself, believe that hell is a fiery pit. Our description comes from the Bible, and the Bible describes hell as “fire” or “fiery.” I liked reading Dante’s story and his view on it.

Excellent. You've never heard about Dante because neither churches nor anyone else mentions Hell anymore. But the Bible hasn't changed, and Jesus talked about Hell more than He talked about Heaven!
Superb homework, with several model answers! 100/100. Congratulations!
