The Globe theatre was a home for alot of William Shakespeare’s plays. It was a theatre in London and was well associated with William Shakespeare. The reason why is beacause it is the place where William Shakespeare performed most of his plays. The Globe Theatre was built by William Shakespears’s play company (The Lord Chamberlain’s Men) and was finalised in the year 1599. It was later destroyed in the year 1613, June 29. It was cause bya fire. Another Globe Theatre was rebuilr up on the same site as the previous one in June and close down in the year 1642. In memory of William Shakespeare, a modern more suffisticated globe theatre was built 230 metres away from the orginal Globe Theatre that was built in the year 1599. It opened in the year 1997 and was named Shakespeare’s Globe.

Most of William Shaspeare’s plays have a big relevance to todays societ. Not just William Shakespeare’s but many other poets have done relative plays. The only difference would be the language and and technology used back in there days.

Individual Task 4

1) The Dalai Lama is head of the Buddhist and Tibetan people. About 14 million Buddhists think that the Dalai Lama is a God, but he does not consider himself as a God, but sees himself as a teacher to all. He says that if you do good in your life now, your next life that you will live a good next life. If you had a bad life, your next life will be a bad one.

2) Because he has said that if these riots continue in countries like his own and his own people being involved in these such riots, he is willing or prepared to resign from his job of being the Dalai Lama therefore showing an ideal moral integrity.

Cst/Ist – Individual Task 3 – 09/04/08

1) Define the term ‘moral integrity’.

Moral integrity means a complex and a delicate ethical notion.

2) Describe why Maximillian Koble is regarded as a Chirstian of exemplary moral integery.

The reason why Maximillian Koble is regarded as a Crhirstian of exemplary of moral integery because, he was a matyr and he died for that man who nearly died from starvation. And also he was imprisoned by the German Gestapo and he was transferred at Auschwitz in 25 May and he was prisoner number #16670.

3) Outline Maximillian ethical actions/principles that he demonstarted in Auschwitz.

Maximillian ehtical actions and principles when he demostarted in Auschwitz was that he died as an martyr, and he was the 20th-Century martyr. The reason why he replaced the soilder who is starving is because he said that he was old and useless, and comparing to Maximillian and the dying soilder that the dying soilder had a wife, and kids. And also he was young and he didn’t want to die so Maximillian replaced him. And the German soilders took granted of Miximillian’s actions. And also on the clip that he was moved to cell 13 and then they poisoned him. So therefore in my statment, he died as a martyr.

4) Evaluate whether you think he made the right decision and provide research to support your answer. i.e. Catholic teachings.

In my own point of opinion, Maximillian has made the right decision to die as a martyr. Because he was Christian and also, he made the monastery in japan. And also during the time when we was still in starvation he led the men in songs and prayer. Then after the 3 weeks, he was murdered with a injection of carbolic acid. Then he was canonized by Pope John Paul 2 on October 10, 1982.
