Sunset Limited

Kaitlin Henczel
Ambrose Research Conference presentation

The Sunset Limited script, written by Cormac McCarthy, depicts an intense conversation that takes place between two characters, White and Black. This conversation is what takes place after Black rescues White from his attempt at committing suicide. It is in these two characters that one can see the description of both a non-believer and believer when it comes to the views of religion. There are two main excerpts of the script that I will look at and explore through the lenses of two theorists William James and Abraham Maslow.

Pride Goeth Before a Fall

Rachel VanderWoude
Ambrose Research Conference presentation

The character of Satan in John Milton’s Paradise Lost is a subject of heavy debate among Milton scholars. Some, like C.S. Lewis, believe that Satan is a villain through and through, and any sympathy towards him shows the reader to be an atheist, or at the very least, not firmly Christian. Others, like William Blake, claim that Milton was “of the devil’s party without knowing it,” and consider Satan to be a tragic hero rather than a villain (Blake 88).

Ambrose Research Conference presentation

An Inquiry into Post-War Ethnic German Migration and Resettlement in Canada. Post-Second World War ethnic German migration to Canada is a history marked by hardships, challenges, and a seemingly endless number of hurdles that people faced in the Old World, in transit, and upon arrival to Canada. Having been displaced by the war, many ethnic Germans made their way to Canada for a chance at a fresh start, far away from the devastation and suffering in Europe, especially in Eastern Europe.

“How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?” An Examination of Martin Luther’s Views on the Virgin Mary

Roland Weisbrot
Ambrose Research Conference presentation

A person who finds themselves in a contemporary mainline or evangelical Protestant church will be hard-pressed to hear much about the Virgin Mary other than, as her title implies, she was a virgin, and that she was the mother of Jesus Christ. Both things are true and important in and of themselves for Christian doctrine and theology, but they are also very cursory statements in nature and do not really address the vital and dominant role Mary has played in Christian history and spirituality, even among the Reformers.

Cricket: A Case Study in Alberta’s Sporting History

Daniel C. Randell
Ambrose Research Conference presentation

The game of cricket is widely perceived in Canada today as something foreign; after all, the game was invented in England, and clubs in Canada today seem to consist mostly of expatriates from various parts of the world where the sport is popular. English cricket, however, boasts a rich history in this former British Dominion. It was played widely across the country and many current clubs can trace their origins at least back to the nineteenth century. By the start of the twentieth century, leagues and associations had formed nationwide.
