At first we have checked one exercise we had to do about the introduction of the unit and about the point 2, “Humanism”. After that Silvia has read the point 3 of the unit, “Reformation and Counter-Reformation”. Paqui has written a scheme on the blackboard about the main humanists, they are: Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio, Valla, Pico della Mirandole in Itialy, Erasmus of Rotterdam in Netherlands, Thomas More in England, Michel de Montaigne in France, Antonio de Nebrija in Castile and Luis Vives in Aragon. We have copied this scheme. Paqui has explained some things of the point 3 with a power point she has showed us.
There was the Martin Luther Reformation, because there was a lot of corruption in the church. Lutheranism was a reformation with some purposes: the salvation through faith, the Bible can be read by all the people and the universal priesthood that is no intermediaries needed between God and the believers. There were pastors and there were only two sacraments. In this map we can see the espansion of the Protestants and each area. Then other protestant currents are Calvinism and Anglicanism. Calvinism believers though that when you born you have a destination and to the salvation is very important to work. Anglicanism was created because the King Henry VIII of England wanted to divorce and the Pope didn’t let him, so he created his own religion.
I think in history there are some things that are very interesting, as the creation of your own religion because you disagree with the other religion.
For the next day we have to do the crossword of unit 6.
Bye bye, have a good afternoon.
