Question:

Can you contrast the divine right theory of government with the social contract theory?

Answer:

The theory of Divine Right meant that the King ruled because God placed him on the throne. No one could challenge the king's right to rule. The people had to obey the king because that is what God wanted. That theory came from the Bible. MORE?
