Jesus: Who Do You Say I Am?

There were many different theories about who Jesus really is, that existed in the period directly after his death, around the 1st century CE to the 5th century CE. Today, these different theories are known as heresies. It’s worth noting that one of those theories was accepted as the orthodox position in the early church. These heresies are crucial to the history of Christianity because it has allowed for the debate over Jesus' nature and has therefore helped to shape Christianity into what we know today. What happened before the divinity of Jesus was established? Who was he really?

Epic Facebook Battle: Romans vs Barbarians

We chose some Roman characters and also some famous ‘barbarians’ who were a threat to the Roman empire so that they could have quasi-meaningful interactions.

Draw our history - Battle of Tours

Draw our history - Battle of Tours

In our rendition of Draw My Life, we will be featuring a quick summation of Draw My History, depicting the Battle of Tours, which happened in 732 CE, between the Muslims and the Christians. In summation, it arose from the efforts of the Muslims leader, Emir Abdul Rahman who was overly eager in the spreading of his faith. In order for that to happen he led his troop, the moors, in a mission to replace the faith of Christianity in France. We felt that it was important to let everyone know how trivialized the Battle of Tours was, as it was a significant battle that was able to determine the religious beliefs of France, today

However, their individual journeys as female rulers were definitely tainted with common struggles and opposition. We wonder what it would have been like if these three rulers were not alone in their leadership but had girlfriends whom they could share their joy and sorrow with.

Caesar's Plight

Caesar's Plight

Brilliant tactician, benevolent leader and first-degree murder victim - all of which, are diverse perceptions of Julius Caesar that elicit responses ranging from admiration and sympathy to spite.  He’s mostly been painted as a tyrannical dictator and narcissist - which he well may have been, for starting the trend of printing one’s own face on national currency as a statement of power and legacy. But how much have we considered Caesar’s own perspectives through these third-person accounts?
