Divine Right of Kings

Divine Right of Kings | Macbeth by Wiliam Shakespeare | Scoop.it

This article explains the meaning behind The Divine Right of Kings, and supports the doctrine in defense of monarchical absolutism. In retrospect it is the theory that the king recieved his power directly from god,and that nobody else even comapres to him. It also states that he shall not be accountable for any of his actions by any earthly figure, such as parliament or law enforcement. Bishops who composed the doctorine stated that the kings authority and person was sacred.

The Witch as Multifaceted Icon

The Witch as Multifaceted Icon | Macbeth by Wiliam Shakespeare | Scoop.it
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition. Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject matter, we bring a little of the Witch or Sorceress or Enchantress throughout art history and in the artworks of deviantART as she has appeared, the eternal female sometimes revered as symbol and icon of human power, but also sometimes reviled, hunted and depicted as symbol of all that is traitorous and deceptive.

King James I: Demonologist

King James I: Demonologist | Macbeth by Wiliam Shakespeare | Scoop.it

King James was vastly intrigued by the occult, which is anything pertaining to supernatural powers or magic. He believed that witches tried to sink his ship while he was on a journey home from Denmark with his new wife. This led to the executions of around seventy individuals, who were followed by many more when James ascended to the English throne in 1603. He passed the Witchcraft Act and this made anything related to magic or sorcery illegal by penalty of execution. This act led to the immediate death of ten more people, who were accused of plotting to blow up Lancaster Castle. He continued trying and executing the accused "witches" for many years, torturing many and burning others at the stake.His methods were questionable and were portrayed for him and his court in 1606 by Shakespeare's play "Macbeth".
