In antebellum America, a religious revival called the Second GreatAwakening resulted in thousands of conversions to evangelicalreligions. Itinerant preachers, such as Charles Granison Finney,traveled from town to town, lecturing to crowds about eradicating sinin the name of perfectionism. Camp meetings, or large religiousgatherings, also gave the devout opportunities to practice theirreligion and for potential conversions of non-believers. In addition toa religious movement, other reform movements such as temperance,abolition, and women's rights also grew in antebellum America. Thetemperance movement encouraged people to abstain from consumingalcoholic drinks in order to preserve family order. The abolitionmovement fought to abolish slavery in the United States. The women'srights movement grew from female abolitionists who realized that theytoo could fight for their own political rights. In addition tothese causes, reforms touched nearly every aspect of daily life, suchas restricting the use of tobacco and dietary and dress reforms.
No one denomination or sect dominated the Great Awakeningand all the colonies were effected although Massachusetts,Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginiawere those most influenced by the movement.
The Second Great Awakening influenced the North more than it did the South and on a whole encouraged democratic ideas and a better standard for the common man and woman.
The renowned twentieth century author and journalist, Ernest Miller Hemingway had provided the world of literature a few of the best pieces. Hemingway essays and Hemingway short stories are perfect examples of modern literature. The understated and economic style of Ernest Hemingway essays mesmerized the readers of the twentieth century. Most of Hemingway’s essays and short stories were produced during the mid of 1920’s and mid of 1950’s. Thus this modern writer influenced the world with his stoic, adventurous and macho figure. Not only his writing style but also his personal life became the emblem of the modern society.
Assess the validity of this statement with specific reference to the years 1825-1850.’ Reform movements in the United States sought to expand democratic ideals from the quarter century time period of 1825-1850 also known as the Second Great Awakening.

"According to the prophecy, the next pope (following Benedict XVI) is to be the final pontiff, Petrus Romanus or Peter the Roman. The idea by some Catholics that the next pope on St. Malachy's list heralds the beginning of "great apostasy" followed by "great tribulation" sets the stage for the imminent unfolding of apocalyptic events, something many non-Catholics would agree with. This would give rise to a false prophet, who according to the book of Revelation leads the world's religious communities into embracing a political leader known as Antichrist. In recent history, several Catholic priests--some deceased now--have been surprisingly outspoken on what they have seen as this inevitable danger rising from within the ranks of Catholicism as a result of secret satanic "Illuminati-Masonic" influences. These priests claim secret knowledge of an multinational power elite and occult hierarchy operating behind supranatural and global political machinations. Among this secret society are sinister false Catholic infiltrators who understand that, as the Roman Catholic Church represents one-sixth of the world's population and over half of all Christians, it is indispensable for controlling future global elements in matters of church and state and the fulfillment of a diabolical plan they call "Alta Vendita," which is set to assume control of the papacy and to help the False Prophet deceive the world's faithful (including Catholics) into worshipping Antichrist.
