Question:

Do words need to be in a particular order in Latin for the sentence to make sense? In English we would say, "the car goes fast," not, "the fast goes car". Is this the case in Latin as well?

Answer:

While word order can be important in Latin for some clauses, by and large it is not as important as it is in English. Because Latin nouns and verbs have specific endings that indicate whether it's the subject, indirect object, passive, imperfect, etc. they can be placed in pretty much any order in the sentence, and as long as you know what the endings mean, you can decipher the meaning.

Question:

When the Crusades are discussed in history classes they are usually heavily focused around Christian pilgrimages and the Church. Were Christians the only religion to practice pilgrimages in this period?

Answer:

While Christians did participate in pilgrimages during the period of the Crusades they were not the only religion to do so. Both Muslims and Jews performed pilgrimages to the Holy Land as well. Christian pilgrimages differed from the two other Abrahamic religions in that it was only typical for wealthy people to go on pilgrimages since it required a great deal of time and travel. It was also typical for Christians to be ordered to perform a pilgrimage if they had a sin for which to atone in the eyes of the Church. For Jews and Muslims the focus was more so that anyone in the respective faiths should make an effort, if possible, to visit the Holy Land as it was seen as the land of their forefathers.

Question:

In Charlotte Perkins Gilman story "The Yellow Wallpaper," how does the figure within the wallpaper mirror the struggles of the narrator?

Answer:

The narrator of this story is a woman who has been confined to her bedroom at the urging of her husband, a physician, due to her hysteria. The more time that she spends in her room, the more she begins to see a figure within the garish pattern of the wallpaper. This figure always appears to be attempting to escape her confines and spends all night running to and fro seeking an exit from her cage. This figure demonstrates the frustration and feeling of entrapment of the narrator. As the story continues, the narrator begins to take on the characteristics of the figure in the wallpaper with the culmination of the story resulting in the narrator herself running around the edges of the wallpapered room seeking an escape. This illustrates that the figure in the wallpaper was the narrator from the beginning and was merely a method of coping in her difficult circumstances.
