christianity

Between the first and fourth centuries, Christianity went from being a persecuted minority religion to the dominant religion of the Roman Empire and, in time, the Western world. Important turning points in this process included Constantines conversion and proclamation of legal tolerance for Christianity in 313 and Theodosius declaration in 394 that Christianity would be the only legal religion. One result of these developments was a complicated and problematic relationship between Christian traditions and Roman pagan traditions, which became perhaps the most pressing cultural issue in the Roman world for nearly three centuries. Historians have generally fallen into one of two camps when it comes to understanding the implications of the rise of Christianity for the culture of the ancient Roman world. One group sees the growth of Christianity as the force that effectively destroyed Roman culture, replacing it with an entirely new set of values, literary traditions, and cultural practices. A second group argues that Christianity fundamentally preserved Roman culture and looks for evidence of the ways in which Roman traditions were creatively adapted into Christian culture.

Your essay this semester will take a stand on whether the triumph of Christianity represented the destruction or preservation of Roman culture. The essay will be based on analysis of two primary sources: The Martyrdom of Perpetua and Felicity and the two letters of Jerome, both of which we have discussed in class. Ultimately, you should produce an essay that analyzes the different ways in which each source depicts the relationship between Christianity and Romanitas and how that relationship changed between 200 and 400 CE. Through your analysis, you will make a single, coherent argument about the implications of this relationship for our understanding of the process of Christianization.

Your essay in its final form should be around 5-6 pages (about 1300-1500 words) in length. Its analysis should be thoroughly supported with specific evidence from the texts. Make sure to cite all quotations and textual evidence using in-text parenthetical citations. Your essay should be typed and double-spaced, and have page numbers. You should absolutely not use any sources other than those provided, the textbook, and material from lectures for this paper. Do not go online to Wikipedia or any other site to help with this essay. I am interested in your interpretation and understanding of the sources. If you use the textbook, please cite the page numbers, just as you would with the primary sources. Any form of plagiarism will result in a zero for the paper and the submission of a letter into your permanent student file.

Restorative art

Using your knowledge of color theory along with the principles of cosmetic application learned in this module, discuss the importance that shadowing and contouring has in the mortuary setting, regardless of the decedents age or sex.  Think of the different lighting scenarios a decedent might be exposed to;  under the lights at the funeral home with sunlight coming through the windows, under the lights at the funeral home at night when there is no natural sunlight, being brought into a church the next morning with different types of lighting etc, etc. 

Answer the Discussion board first then reply to two other people. Agree or disagree and why?

First person When it comes to the cosmetics portion of preparing a body for viewing for the family and friends is very much like the daily preperations for movie stars and models. Using the cosmetics to enhance certain facial features and blend away blimishes is necessary. We as embalmers try to creat as flawlish resemblence of the families loved one for viewing and last image remembrance. We just as make up artist to the movie stars and models try to cover up those imperfections and enhance the features that might possibly draw attention away from the imperfect areas. Embalmers also need to be aware of the lighing issues that might present themselves to ensure that the cosmetics are done correctly to ensure lighting doesn’t creat poor imaging. Just as models are in photo shoots the camera and lighting crew are constantly moving about trying to get the best angle and image.  Embalmers are chasing after the same goal too.  Typically in funeral home settings the lighting is very low and natural in color not the over head fluorescent lighting that is harsh and tends to not really be anyones friends when it comes to the looks department. Also, if the body is to be placed where outside lighting from windows will shine through then other precautions will need to be addressed too,  more shadowing or tinting may be used since certain lights effect the overall appearance.  Also, many funeral homes also have special lighting angled where the casket is placed for viewing which tend helps with the color appearance of the body too.

Second person Shadowing and contouring can be a great asset to your cosmetic skills. When we are applying cosmetics to a person for viewing, they are presented in a casket/ which is a position in which most people who are not very close to him have never seen. With shadowing and contouring we are able to create an illusion to hide flaws and unsightly angles. When cosmetics cannot achieve the ultimate goal many times you can use lighting to create the color and presentable finished product.  At my funeral home we often use lights to help achieve the correct hue for the persons natural skin tone.

discussion

In today’s reading, Emily Wilson, a translator of The Odyssey by Homer, discusses how, though it be quite an old story, The Odyssey has many deeply relevant themes and concerns.

Sometimes, we feel that our fears, concerns, joys, and bores are all very modern. However, if we have learned anything from some of the older texts this semester, that is not the case.

Choose one theme from a text we have read this semester that is over 30 years old. Discuss how this theme you’ve chosen is relatable to modern audiences and why. Secondly, why do you think these texts are read and re-read across the ages? Is it their “relatability,” or something quite different?

Discuss your answer in 1-2 thoughtful paragraphs. This will be for a grade in “Homework, etc.”

Any topic (writer’s choice)

ASSIGNMENT 2 Now that youve explored what the different avenues are within a police department, pick two that you may be interested in pursuing after patrol. Conduct research about what it may take to get to that unit such as training, physical fitness, college focus, targeted patrol for narcotics, proactive policing, etc. Research may be via interview, website, internet, etc. THERE WILL BE AN AUTOMATIC 10 POINTS EXTRA CREDIT IF AN INTERVIEW IS CONDUCTED WITH SOMEONE WITHIN THE SPECIALIZED UNIT IN WHICH YOU ARE RESEARCHING. Keep in mind that getting in touch with someone in one of those specialized units and asking them directly how they got there is going to give you the best insight! It may be as easy as sending an email. If you ask me, I can likely help you get in touch with the right person. DUE: 11/19/2020

parenting styles

Using any of the readings in the “Roar of the Tiger Mom” chapter as well as two or more sources from Sierra College’s databases, write an explanatory synthesis that contrasts Amy Chua’s views on parenting with three other approaches.  So your first body paragraph could cover Chua’s approach to parenting, and body paragraphs 2, 3, and 4 could cover three additional approaches to parenting, you could briefly summarize the controversy over Chua’s book in your introduction as a way to lead into your presentation of various parenting approaches.
