How did the Church become so powerful? Hmm. Looong story, before our class starts. Just know that when our time period starts, that the Church is very large, wealthy, and powerful. What did people think when the church knew they were abusing Indulgences and said they were fixing it? Not sure I understand this. Do you mean in Council of Trent? I think they were probably happy that the church was trying to reform? But of course many people could react in many ways, and we don’t have access to traces of most of them. Last semester, in my religions of South East Asia class, we briefly discussed how the Jesuits had missionary missions in China and that there was a Rites Controversy. How did the Jesuits handle that situation? So remember I said that imperialism has various groups, and often missionaries, and explorers, and state reps had conflicting agendas, and statuses, and did not get along? Well, it was also true that different missionaries did not get along with each other. So the Chinese Rites controversy was a situation where different Catholic missionaries disagreed (in the mid-1700s). In China there Jesuits and Dominicans and Franciscans all trying to convert Chinese people to Catholicism. (Jesuits and Dominicans clashed, a lot, as missionaries.) The issue was, was

Confucianism a religion? If it was, then they could not let people keep being Confucian, and then also be Catholic, and call it a conversion/win. But if it was a bunch of secular/cultural rituals, then they could let people keep being Confucian, and then also be Catholic, and call it a conversion/win. The Jesuits see Confucianism as ritual, but not religion; the Dominicans and Franciscans saw it as religion, and ‘reported’ the Jesuits to Rome. The papacy agreed with the Dominicans. I’m just a little lost timeline-wise. I understand each topic, but where all the topics are in relation to each other would be nice to cover quickly. Make a timeline! What will we need to study for the exam? Will we be able to bring a piece of paper with us as an outline for the exam? Will be be getting the essay topic a day in advance? Curious about the format of the test. How important is our textbook compared to our notes? What is the best way to take notes and study for this class?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
