Defending The Double Monastery: Aldhelm Of Malmesbury's De Virginitate And Seventh-Century England, Thomas Cramer Aug 2001

Defending The Double Monastery: Aldhelm Of Malmesbury's De Virginitate And Seventh-Century England, Thomas Cramer

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The double monasteries of seventh-century England have long been a problematic institution for historical interpretation. The purpose of this project is an attempt to place these institutions in relation to the ecclesiastical controversies of seventh-century England. Archbishop Theodore, who wished to reform the Anglo-Saxon church, challenged the role of the double monasteries. The attack on the double monasteries was instituted along gendered lines by evoking religious traditions that called into question the legitimacy of cooperation between monastic men and women. However, this position was not universally accepted. Aldhelm of Malmesbury’s De Virginitate provides a theological defense for the double ...

Civil War In Missouri: A Look At Confederate Guerrillas' Four-Stage Devolution, Drew Johnson May 2001

Civil War In Missouri: A Look At Confederate Guerrillas' Four-Stage Devolution, Drew Johnson

Honors Theses

Even before the Civil War broke out, pro-slavery and abolitionist groups were fighting for the future of slavery in the state of Missouri. Jayhawkers took the abolitionist cause into their own hands, and border ruffians did the same for slavery. When war eventually broke out, it was therefore fought by and against the people and characterized by guerrilla activity. Some of these guerrillas, like Quantrill and Anderson, had histories of criminal activities, whereas others, like the James brothers and Cole Younger, went on to further influence American history after the war. As the Union gained control of Missouri, Confederate guerrillas ...

John E Rybolt

The Congregation of the Mission (the Vincentians) arrived in America in 1815. This article traces their history as a mission from Rome (1815-35), a province of the Congregation (1835-88), divided into two provinces (1888-1975), and again into five provinces (from 1975). Its ministries developed from preaching and seminary teaching into other fields, such as university education and foreign missions.

“Slavery, Racist Violence, American Apartheid: The Case For Reparations.”, Sundiata K. Cha-Jua Jan 2001

“Slavery, Racist Violence, American Apartheid: The Case For Reparations.”, Sundiata K. Cha-Jua

Sundiata K Cha-Jua

LIKE THE PROVERBIAL COMET, over the last year the demand for reparations has blazed across the political skyline. Few current issues burn as brightly among African Americans. The movement's surging growth has predictably provoked renewed opposition. Recently critiques of the escalating reparations movement have come from two very different sources: Adolph L. Reed, Jr., a justly-respected African American radical, and David Horowitz, an unrespected neoconservative ideologue. This paper has three interconnected objectives: (1) to explicate Reed's and Horowitz's arguments; (2) to contextualize their arguments; and (3) to suggest an alternative reading of the reparations movement. The first ...

Transitions From Isolation: An Ethnographic Study Of A Contemporary Ouachita Mountains Hillman Culture, Reyda L. Taylor Jan 2001

Transitions From Isolation: An Ethnographic Study Of A Contemporary Ouachita Mountains Hillman Culture, Reyda L. Taylor

Honors Theses

[Excerpt] Among these American hillmen descendants is the MacCleod Family (pseudonym). In early 2001, I heard stories about a clan that lived in the Ouachita woods like "savages." Not originally from Arkansas, I had often heard scornful jokes about Arkansas being a backward state. This perpetuated stereotype enticed m to find out if these extreme MacCleod tales were true. What I found in the region from which the stories originated was a large extended family. I also found that the stories I initially heard were not the only inflated tales circulating the region regarding this particular group. As I become ...


Two Sides Of A River: Mormon Transmigration Through Quincy, Illinois, And Hannibal, Missouri, Fred E. Woods Jan 2001

Two Sides Of A River: Mormon Transmigration Through Quincy, Illinois, And Hannibal, Missouri, Fred E. Woods

All Faculty Publications

The infamous extermination order issued 27 October 1838 by Missouri Governor Lilburn W. Boggs caused thousands of Latter-day Saints to flee the state and seek refuge in Illinois across the Mississippi River. Illinois, established in 1817, had high hopes for its future, but just two decades later it was smitten, like the rest of America, with the economic depression of 1837. In such a needy condition, the people Illinois welcomed the Mormon migrants for three central reasons. Financially motivated, the state viewed the Latter-day Saint influx as an opportunity to raise its population to boost the economy through the collection ...


The Age Of Entanglement, David D. Nolte Dec 2000

The Age Of Entanglement, David D. Nolte

David D Nolte

Quantum mechanics is a venerable field of study. The year 2000 marked the 100th anniversary of the
original quantum hypothesis proposed by Max Planck in November of 1900. Few current fields in physics
or engineering are as old as quantum mechanics. It predates relativity, both special and general. It predates
nuclear and particle physics. Quantum mechanics even predates universal acceptance of the molecular
hypothesis, that is, that all matter is made up of individual molecules in thermal motion. It may be hard to
believe, but this happened only after Einstein's paper on Brownian motion was published in his miracle ...
