With the marriage arranged and her journey to begin, Constance is close to despair at leaving her  family, friends, and Rome, but being a dutiful and faithful daughter, she commends herself to the  journey, relying upon "Jesus Christ who died for our salvation, / Give me the strength of purpose to  fulfill / His wishes" ("But Crist, that starf for our redempcion / So yeve me grace his heestes to  fulfille"). Meanwhile, the Sultan's mother, who would rather die than give up her religion for the sake  of a foreign girl, arranges with her councilors to pretend to accept the new religion until the wedding  feast, at which time they will attack and slay the Christians.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
