INTRODUCTION The Restoration period (1660-1700) had a great influence on the life and literature of contemporary age. This period is called the Restoration period because in this period, with the restoration of monarchy, the English literary tradition was restored. In the Commonwealth period Charles-II, the son of Charles-I escaped from England to France. After the fall of Commonwealth, the people of England brought him back and made him king of England (on May 29, 1660). He remained in power till his demise in 1685 when James-II, another son of Charles-I, ascended the throne. He was a catholic and most of the people who were protestants wanted to dethrone him. In 1688 there was the Glorious Revolution (Bloodless Revolution) against him. He fled to France. William-III of France and his wife Mary, the son-in-law and daughter of James-II, came to the power
The early Christian sermons that Luke summarized and recorded form to a very great extent the basis for a reconstruction of the kerygma, and from this point of view, the gospel records were made. Luke's account of how Christianity made its way among Gentiles without discarding the more vital points of Judaism did much toward establishing unity. The account of Paul's arrest in the city of Jerusalem and the trials that followed clearly vindicate Paul in the eyes of any impartial reader. The end of the book is somewhat disappointing because one would expect to read about Paul's trial in Caesar's court, but the account ends rather abruptly. Some people think that Luke intended to write a third volume of his history but was unable to do so. Of this we cannot be certain. However, we are indebted to Luke in no small measure for the two accounts of Christianity that he did write.
The growth of modern technology and the sophistication of society over a period of time became a big challenge for traditional media of communication.
compare and contrast Jacobean Revenge Tragedy and Restoration Comedy using The Rovers by Aphra Behn and The Duchess of Malfi by John Websters
Comparison Class and money The rover, partly as a point of comparison with john websters work. The Duchess of malfi, we consider the common themes of class and money. In Aphra behn’s rover although not a particularly romantic topic, the issue of money runs throughout the rover. The cavaliers constantly bemoan the fact that they do not have sufficient funds while don pedro picks a husband for his sister based almost solely upon fortune. Angelica Bianca, too, is obsessed with money, and must crucially decide whether for free, or hold out for the highest bidder. In comparison with websters work, we see the same theme for instance, the duchess argues that high class is not an indicator of a good man. At the time, Italy was moving into capitalism and one no longer needed into capitalism and one no longer needed to be born into wealth to obtain it. Though the duchess and her brothers are aware of this, her brothers, concerned with wealth and honour nevertheless strive to dismantle her marriage to Antonio while disapproving of their sisters love life. Ferdinand is particularly obsessed with the idea of inheriting the fortune to which his sister is entitled because it would protect his social and financial status ultimately the duchess is put to death for remarry into the lower class.
