1) Define Heresy * It is the selection religious or political doctrines, adhesion to parties in Church or State. * According to St. Thomas: "a species of infidelity in men who, having professed the faith of Christ, corrupt its dogmas" * Heresy is an opinion or belief that does not agree with the belief of a particular religion (Merriam-Webster)

2) How did the Church solve the problem of heresies? Identify the 5 Major heresies and how it was solved. a) Arianism * Emperor Theodosius reversed the policy of his predecessors and sided with Rome. Within the boundaries of the Roman empire the faith of Nicaea, enforced again by the General Council of Constantinople (381), prevailed, but Arianism held its own for over two hundred years longer wherever the Arian Goths held sway: in Thrace, Italy, Africa, Spain, Gaul. The conversion of King Recared of Spain, who began to reign in 586, marked the end ofArianism in his dominions, and the triumph of the Catholic Franks sealed the doom of Arianism everywhere. b) Pelagianism * not being backed by political power * flourished only so long and so far as the temporal power of Byzantine and Persian rulers gave them countenance. * internal dissension, stagnation, and decay became their fate when left to themselves. c) Eutychianism * flourished only so long and so far as the temporal power of Byzantine and Persian rulers gave them countenance. * internal dissension, stagnation, and decay became their fate when left to themselves. d) Nestorianism * flourished only so long and so far as the temporal power of Byzantine and Persian rulers gave them countenance. * internal dissension, stagnation, and decay became their fate when left to themselves. e) Lutheranism * series of penal laws unequalled in severity were made

Marcionism and Its Impact

...MARCIONISM AND ITS IMPACT By: Addison Termunde Theology 1001 Mr. Lashier 8 a.m. Addison Termunde Theology 1001 Lashier Term Paper 11/19/10 Marcionism and its Impact For every story told, multiple interpretations and perceptions are created. Anthology is defined as “a book or other collection of selected writings by various authors, usually in the same literary form”(Dictionary.com). The bible is just this; for every collection of stories told, a collection of interpretations, whether they be right or wrong, are ought to form. Throughout the early centuries many altered interpretations, or heresies, regarding the bible formed. Although the heresy of Marcionism was outlandish and heavily disputed against, it actually aided in the emergence of the Catholic Church. According to John Knox, of the University of Chicago, “Among the creative personalities of early Christianity few are so interesting and important as Marcion, who was expelled from the Roman community… and whose activities gave rise to the most vigorous heretical movement within the ancient church”(p.1). According to the article, Marcion and Scripture: The Impact of a Second Century Heretic on the New Testament, Marcion’s early life was filled with disgrace. “At some point later, however, he was “excommunicated by his own father” for having seduced a consecrated virgin and “degraded both her and himself.” Most modern historians think that the story of......

It was believed that he was blamed because of his hatred towards the Christians. 2) HOW DID THE PAX ROMANA HELP THE SPREAD OF THE GOSPEL? Paul was able to travel through out the Mediterranean on his journeys because of the Pax Romana. Travel became so much easier during the Pax Romana because the Romans ran out pirates from the Mediterranean, and build roads in which to travel. These roads allowed the Romans to benefit from increased trade throughout the Empire. All in all, having all these open roads and such made it possible for the spread of the gospel. 3) HERESIES OF THE EARLY CHURCH THAT DEALT WITH MONOPHYSITISM Of all the eastern Christological heresies, monophysitism was the most contentious. Monophysitism was an eastern heresy, which as normally the case Christianity in the west didn't understand, and did not contribute to resolving, in any significant way such as in the Arian conflict as well as Nestorianism. Monophysitism had begun as the antithesis of Nestorianism. Nestorius had been accused of teaching a dual Christ, Eutyches, an archimandrite from Constantinople, presented a profound anti-Nestorian view, at the Council of Ephesus.

Heresy

...Structure of Presentation Introduction: Shaun: Define heresy, and give an example of a heretical group in the early middle ages e.g the manicheans. Heretics are defined by others, never by themselves. David: What do the catholics believe? They believe in the holy trinity, the papacy, believe in being christened at birth to wash away the original sin committed by adam and eve. They believe that God is divine and that he immediately judges who goes to heaven or hell. What we must consider is to what extent the Catholic church and its leaders integrated their own rules and belief...This may be defined as a heresy within itself. Dom: What may be argued as the biggest Catholic heresy of all is actually purgatory. In the bible, there is not a single mention of purgatory and it may be argued that it was not until the 6th century that Catholic theologians began to cite information about the existence of purgatory. The concept of purgatory became much more widespread due to the fanaticism of Pope Gregory the Great who developed the doctrine through visions and revalations of purgatorial fires. It is also arguable that when monks and bishops began to translate the bible from latin that it was then placed within the teachings of the catholic church. Shaun: Equally, the believed heresy of the divinity of Jesus is also a key factor to consider here. It is argued by many historians that Jesus’ divinity was decided upon by the council of Nicea...

War and Witchcraft

...War and Witchcraft HIS/113 War and Witchcraft According to Midelfort, it “is the common claim that it was singularly responsible for the outburst of witch hunting that swept over Europe from the fifteenth through the early-eighteenth centuries” (Para 15). The Malleus Maleficarum is an ideal point in the study of early witch hunts. The Malleus was written by Heinrich Kramer, a Dominican monk, in 1486. That same year, Pope Innocent VII, issued the Bull Summis Desiderantes Affectibus. The Bull Summis literally meant “desiring with supreme ardour.” It was issued to combat “ecclesiastical officials” from hampering Kramer and his colleague Jakob Sprenger in their efforts to combat heresy. According to "Evil-One.org" (2011), instigated severe measures against magicians and witches in Germany which had the immediate desired effect of making the population fearful they were overrun with witchcraft”, (para. 13). With the publication of Innocent’s Bull Summis on his side, Kramer arrested and charged around 50 women with witchcraft. Not only were these women denied any legal counsel, he had them tortures as well. Kramer’s acts were in complete violation of the inquisitorial rules, provoking many to oppose him in Brixen, eventually the trial of the women continued. When Kramer “questioned a defendant about her sexual practices and moral standing in her community, the judges found his query irrelevant and overruled him”, (Thurston). After accusations of the abuse of his......

The Rise of Roman Papacy

...the pope, technically the bishop of Rome, to a position of unquestioned primacy in the western church took some seven centuries.” During that time period many other factors led to the dominance of the pope. Invasions, heresies, and prominence throughout the land; all aided in the rise of the Roman bishop to the role of “Pope” (Latin for “father”). The fifth century Rome faced the constant threat, and often the reality of invasion. No matter if it was the Huns in 452 AD or the Vandals in 455 AD, the church became the guardian of justice, order, and civility. The ‘barbarian’ invasions throughout this time period forced the pope to negotiate treaties to preserve the lives of Rome’s citizens. “… [P]opes were often forced to make concessions to temporal authorities in exchange for protection.” It fell to the pope to keep the sense of community in the face of chaos. It was also during the Middle Ages that many sects of Christianity began to develop. Within many of those sects were heresies. “The bishop of Rome was asked to arbitrate some of the controversies over heresy in the fourth century, and his opinion was invariably orthodox.” Bishop Damasus (366-384) set out to suppress heresies. Specifically, he was crucial in the fight against the Arian heresy. Damasus presided over the synods of 386 and 389 in Rome. He was also the one who commissioned the Latin Vulgate translation of the Bible. Many of the Popes followed Damasus’ example of maintaining orthodox......

In light of this, we will have to file other cases which are awaiting similar judicial direction,” he said. In this landmark case, the appellants had sought the Federal Court to consider if an adult Muslim is entitled to renounce Islam under Article 11 of the Federal Constitution guaranteeing freedom of religion to every citizen.

...common objections to the traditional understanding of Christology (refer to the Christological heresies in Elwell, pgs. 241–42), and how do you respond to them? * In what ways is Christ in his humanity an example to you? Phil 2 5Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Submit this essay by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday. The Arian concept of Christ is that the Son of God did not always exist, but was created by—and is therefore distinct from—God the Father. This belief is grounded in the Gospel of John (14:28)[3] passage: "You heard me say, 'I am going away and I am coming back to you.' If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I." Apollinarianism was the heresy taught by Apollinaris the Younger, bishop of Laodicea in Syria about 361. He taught that the......

"This definition can diperluaskan as follows: "What-what" meant all kinds of heresy, where he can divided to two categories: 1.

How Did the Catholic Church Attempt to Repress Heresy in Christendom?

...As a student with a keen interest in medieval history, I have always been intrigued by the concept of heresy and how the Roman Catholic Church attempted to rid Christendom of heretics. To be frank all of us, in some form or quantity, have come across heresy in books, popular media, and music. It is a defining term of medieval Europe and the twelfth and thirteenth century see crusades against heretics and the power and means by which the Roman Church aimed to repress the many heretical ideologies that existed. This is both an interesting and extensive topic and throughout this essay I will be focusing on the term ‘Heresy’ itself, why the church sought to repress heretics and lastly how they managed to do the same. In a very general term, heresy can be termed as a disagreement with the Church or the teachings and doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church, and a heretic someone who’s faith, beliefs and practices are in contradiction with that of the Church. Not all heretics believed in the same principle concepts and not all heretical concepts were popular. The Cathars, a heretic group in Languedoc, south of France believed that the world was a creation of the devil and that the sacraments of the Church were not true, but were devilish frauds of an evil church. It is worth noting though that heresy existed in every age, as it is but natural that popular beliefs and ideologies had contradicting and opposing ones, but it was only between the late eleventh and thirteenth century......

Further, I swear and promise to fulfill and observe in their integrity all penances that have been, or that shall be, imposed upon me by this Holy Office.

Medieval

...Jews had a huge target on their backs. The stereotype of Jewish people being stingy with money also began during this time period. Because many of the Jewish people of the time were immigrants in Western Europe it was hard for them to find work. Christians did not agree with the practice of lending money with interest. Jewish people often held these jobs and it made them more of a target. Jews were also held responsible for the death of Jesus Christ because it was religious leaders that ultimately decided to put him to death. The number of people getting accused of heresy also began to grow in the 11th century. Heresy was also very common in these days and was often punishable by death. Heresy is preaching or believing a false belief. In these days, the church had all the power and they were the authority when it came to accusing someone of heresy. According to Module 12: The Rise of Heresy, heresy was common during this time because more people were analyzing Christianity then ever before. A lot of people were beginning to disagree with the Catholic Church’s way of doing business. There were thoughts that church was trying to be more of an empire than the leader of a religion. The Catholic church of this time period’s goal was to make it known around the world that they were the one and only authority on Christianity. Even small acts of insubordination among its followers would not be tolerated. Sometimes the church would order these heretical groups to be......
