    “Don’t Stop Believin’”: Dante’s and Christian’s Journey to Heaven

    Get PDF
    Dante\u27s Divine Comedy and John Bunyan\u27s The Pilgrim\u27s Progress both encounter a protagonist who is journeying with the goal of reaching heaven in mind. During this journey, they are each met with and guided by various characters. In my paper, I focus on Virgil and Beatrice in The Divine Comedy , and Evangelist and Hopeful in The Pilgrim\u27s Progress. Along with these guides, the geography that Dante and Christian each encounter is symbolic of a maturation of faith, as well as many Catholic and Protestant themes that Dante and Bunyan practiced

    The Role of Home Victimization in Preadolescents’ General Perceptions of Trust

    The study explored the impact of home victimization on preadolescents’ general perceptions of trust. This exploration utilized extant data from the São Paulo Legal Socialization Study, a longitudinal study of 800 preadolescent participants who completed questionnaires assessing parental legitimacy, among other related factors. To assess the impact of home victimization on perceptions of trustworthiness, participants were split into two groups based on whether or not they had experienced assault by an adult in their home. Analysis revealed a statistically and practically significant difference across the groups regarding the belief that people care about others. This result indicated that the perception of care decreased with the experience of home victimization. While other differences across groups lacked significance, results indicated that trust in promises decreased and fear of exploitation increased with the experience of home victimization. Since home victimization had a negative impact on trustworthiness perceptions, implications emerged relating to preadolescents’ trust, sense of safety, and well-being. These implications are addressed in this study. The findings broaden the literature on parenting practices in preadolescence and contribute to the field of home victimization. Future studies could expand upon these findings by incorporating non-self-report measures, other types of victimization, and participants from other countries

    The Fight Against the Threat of Witchcraft and Paganism in Anglo-Saxon England

    Get PDF
    Unlike the general assumption that England was completely Christianized after Augustine’s mission to the island, witchcraft and paganism thrived all throughout the Christian period of Anglo-Saxon history. Sources condemning witchcraft and paganism increased during the Danish raids in the mid-ninth century and beyond due to an increased sense of a perceived threat of paganism. King Alfred himself reacted to this threat by doing everything he could to strengthen his people in their Christian beliefs through education reform and his law code. The Church battled against the perceived threat through penitentials–which they used to discourage pagan practices. Lay-people fought against paganism sometimes by the simple act of confessing to their priests, and sometimes by taking protection from the perceived threat into their own hands like in the case of the anonymous widow from Ailsworth. While witchcraft prevailed throughout the entire pre-Alfred Anglo-Saxon period (ca 600-870), the Anglo-Saxons’ perception of the threat of paganism–especially during the Danish raids in the mid-ninth century–caused nearly all aspects of Anglo-Saxon Christendom to fight against paganism and witchcraft in their respective ways

    Fullness of Christ Ministries: Spiritual Formation of Emerging Adults at Woodmen Valley Chapel Through Mentoring

    Get PDF
    Most churches today do not address the needs of emerging adults in any way outside of occasional social gatherings. This has led to a mass exodus of emerging adults from the Church and presents a need for intentional spiritual formation, mentors, and programming for this demographic.
