Writing Assignment: Write 500 words on this: “Do you think that Luther really believed that Pope Leo X did not know what the indulgence salesmen were saying?
Greetings my fellow citizens, scholars and lords and ladies! I am back and writing wonderful essays, quite against my will! I’m being forced to write words and I’m hoping to string them together in a conherant fashion and please, nobody call the fuzz because of my terrible writing. And I haven’t written anything in a very long time and I’m a bit rusty, so bear with me.
The first thing I said to myself when I read the assignment was “Umm probably not.” Not gonna lie, the title is kinda hard to understand at first glance. There’s only one way to interpret it, for me, and I’m just gonna roll with it. But my first question is, How on earth am I supposed to make a 500 word essay with an answer that lasts for two words. In case you don’t know, the indulgence salesmen were guys who pretty much tried to sell forgiveness. They’d tell people that if they bought that they’re family was burning in purgatory and the only way to free them from said flames was to buy an indulgence and then they would be free and they wouln’dt have to burn for their sins anymore. So you can see why I said it was buying forgivness. I’m not sure why they thought it would work. I’m pretty sure even athiests don’t think that (please don’t depate me on this. Thanks) So what I’m trying to write about is if Luther thought the Pope was aware that his goons weren’t telling the truth, I think. I think the Pope knew exactly what was gong on. It was easy money for him and he already had a lot of worldly possession. It was easy for the indulgence salesmen because it was easy money for them too and they probably charged an arm and a leg from the poor folks. Actually, they probably charged an arm and a leg from everybody they conned. I’m surprised at them. That seems more like a creepy, no good, money grabbing thing someone from today’s world would do. But back then most off them were illiterate so they couldn’t read any informational books and figure out that they were being robbed.
Okay, so that answers my question or the title’s question or whatever I mean to say, you’ll figure it out. Most of you have good heads on your shoulders. And since I finished the essay, I have something to say. The few of you who are following this blog, that I know, are awesome! You’ve got a very creative spirit. Keep it up, gang!
And I really am proud of you!
Okay, well , that was my farewell speech. I hope you all find a way to appreciate school and not have a horroble urge to go sew a super fantastic dress, like me. Have a great day and God bless you.
