Elizabethan Era Role of Fate
Transcript of Elizabethan Era Role of Fate
By: Avery, Megan, Julia, Mikallah, Erica & Jessica
It was believed that one's fate was determined by the stars and God had planned your destiny before hand. The word coincidence was not even used in this time. Everything was a plan and it was predetermined.
In the Elizabethan times, the people were interested in zodiac signs and the signs influenced their human affairs
In the Elizabethan era people strongly believed in superstition, fate, destiny and the wheel of fortune. People believed they had no influence in their life as everything was already planned out.
Other people believed in fate but a “fate by free will.” This was the belief that people made different decisions that could lead to their destiny. One well known person who agreed with this belief included William Shakespeare.
Most Elizabethans believed the stars and planets held some kind of power over the 'baser side' of man, and were to be used as tools of God, but they did not believe the stars held power over the supreme side of man--the immortal part. Thus man had free will and could overcome his fate by choosing good; the stars couldn't force him to do anything.
