Themes in History

One of my favorite topics in any history class is Religion. I like to look into different religions and how it influences an event or society. An example would be the early Greeks they believed that if any natural disaster occurred it would because the gods were mad or displeased. The Greeks would then make an offering to the gods to ease their anger. It was amazing that we’re temples everywhere in honor of different gods. I love to see how their religion impacted their daily lives. Another theme is the different class status and how each are affected. I think it is so interesting to look at an event and to see how each social class reacted. This example comes from the book, Angel of Vengeance,  by Ana Siljak. An example would be in the 1880’s and 1890’s when the Russian Revolution was in the works it was the children of nobles who wanted the change. The wanted to speak for the lower class citizens and change the world for them. Another theme is Women’s role. For my presentation in one of my 300 level classes  I talked about Abigail Adams’ role during the American Revolution. Even if women weren’t allowed to partake or physically be at an event in history they still had a role. Some women worked through their social constraints and some women went out of the constraints.
