It occurs on several occasions. In the mountain being chased by the goblins, he falls and is knocked out and the goblins overlook him. In Mirkwood, the Spiders capture them and Bilbo has to rescue them. Again, the Elves capture the party and Bilbo escapes, partially due to his small size and his magic ring.

Bilbo was recruited by Gandalf to join the dwarves' mission as a master thief. Bilbo does not tell his friends about the magic ring because he wants to earn their respect as a thief. Alternatively, it could be the ring's power already beginning to assert its influence over Biblo. In the end, however, Bilbo does tell the dwarves about the ring and that it has the ability to make him invisible, which was what enabled him to escape Gollum, the goblins, and to sneak into the dwarves' camp while Balin was on watch.

There are a number of them. If you cite Biblo as the primary protagonist, and the dwarves as secondary, then the primary antagonist is Smaug, which the lessers being the Tolls, the Goblins of the Misty Mountains, Gollum (only for Bilbo), the Spiders of Mirkwood, Mirkwood itself, the Elves of the Woodland Realm, and the Men of Esgaroth on the Long Lake. At some point, all of them stood opposed to the Dwarves and Bilbo on their quest. Each of them is very different in their motivations too. The Trolls: Mostly motivated by hunger, which made them difficult to deal with for Bilbo. They were dim-witted, though, which was how Gandalf was able to trick them. The Goblins: The goblins were belligerent and confrontational, but that's their nature. Things might have gone differently had they not seen the Elf weapons and Gandalf not killed The Great Goblin. In the later parts of the book, they are motivated by revenge. Gollum: In the Hobbit, Gollum is motivated by hunger and his love of the Ring. AS a result, he was a conniving and deceitful. He planned to kill Bilbo no matter who won the contest of riddles. After losing the ring, he becomes unstable and more violent. Mirkwood: the forest is presented as almost being alive it its own right. It was dark, foreboding and didn't seem to want to let the Dwarves escape. The SPiders: the spiders, also motivated by hunger, were primarily used as a means to establish Bilbo as a capable member of the party. They were aggressive and evil. The Elves: The Elves just wanted to be left alone. They saw the Dwarves intrusion as an attack - or begging. When the Dwarves fled Erebor, they were well known to be beggars. Very few trusted them, and no one less than Elves. The Men: The men saw the Dwarves return as an good omen, since most of them were descendants of the lost town of Dale. They assumed the Dwarves knew how to get rid of the dragon. After the Dragon was slain, they felt that the Dwarves should compensate them, but the Dwarves were too greedy.

Depending on your level of education it can include many things. The most basic report has; 1. Title page with title of paper, your name, class/subject, date 2. A blank page between the title and the body of the paper 3. The body of the paper. This can range anywhere from 10 pages up 4. Footnotes or today footnotes, bibliography are done in context of the paper 5. Bibliography This is true even if you cite within the paper. This also must be in alphabetical order with last name first. Each biblo entry must give name of author, title of book, magazine, web site, publisher, copy write date. If it is a magazine or newspaper it needs to include the name of the magazine/paper with page numbers. Your paper needs to be double spaced and the font needs to be clear and readable. New Times Roman at 12 point is a good one. Make sure that you indent your paragraphs and do a spell check for every page. As a final touch I would put it in a cover to protect it and make it look really good.

Telling Time in Ancient Rome The Sundial The Romans first used the sun's movement to measure the passage of time. Using this method they could precisely measure only sunrise, midday, and sunset, but they used the length of shadows to estimate other times of the day. The introduction of the sundial gave the Romans a new tool to better measure time. Travelers from Sicily brought the sundial to Rome in 263 B.C. and set it up in the Forum, where it became a popular meeting place. People came to check the time, to socialize, and "to see and to be seen." Other sundials were set up in public buildings or squares. Only the wealthy could afford to have one in their own homes and it quickly became a status symbol. Most people still just used the sun and its movements. The sundial enabled the Romans to divide the day into 12 equal parts, or hours. The hours became a way to mark time and meetings. Courts opened at about the third hour, for example, and lunch was at midday, the sixth hour. People would go home to eat a leisurely lunch and take a siesta, returning to work in a few hours. People in Rome today still leave work at 1:00 and return to work from 4:00 to 7:00. sunrise solis ortus midday meridies sunset solis occasus The day was divided into ante meridiem (before midday) and post meridiem (after midday.) These divisions are still used today and abbreviated a.m. and p.m. first hour (prima hora) about 7:00 a.m. Sixth hour (sexta hora) midday Twelfth hour (duodecima hora) hour before sunset (about 6:00 p.m.) The Waterclock The sundial was not the only clock the Romans used. The water clock (clepsydra) was a container with a hole that water flowed out of to mark the passing of time. The inside of the container was marked with "hour" marks which the water passed by. Another variation used a floating rod that ascended to mark the time of day. The water flow began to be used to move hands, bells and even cuckoo birds. The water clock was used to control speakers' times in the Senate. When the water ran out, the speaker's time was up. In case a speech was interrupted, wax was used to stop the water momentarily. Two water clocks equaled about one hour. This water clock was also used to keep time in races. Like the sundial, only the rich could afford to have one. The Calendar It has always been difficult for humans to devise a calendar that works precisely because the solar year is not exactly 365 days long and the lunar month is not exactly 29 days. On the advice of an Alexandrian astronomer, Julius Caesar decided to correct this problem by adding a day to the calendar every fourth year. This made up for the 365.25 days of the regular year. This new calendar was introduced to the Romans on January 1, 45 B.C. After Caesar's death, the extra day was added too often at first, but this mistake was corrected and the calendar worked. It had now been changed from lunar to truly solar. We still use this calendar today for the most part, with a leap year every four years on February 29th. The Romans renamed the months of the year with their equivalents of what the Babylonians had named them. January was for Janus, a sky god who was worshipped as the god of all doors, gates, and entrances. Februarius was from februare, which means to expiate or purify. This may have been the month of purification because its end corrected the difference between the calendar and the natural year's length. Martius was named after the god of war. Aprilis may have been from Aphrodite or from the word aperio, which means to open, perhaps signifying the opening of buds and flowers. Maius is from Maia, the daughter of Atlas. Junius is from Juno. Some say these two months may be from the words majores (old) and juniores (young) signifying two age group. The sixth month was later renamed for Caesar and his calendar reforms, and August was renamed for his son, Augustus Octavian. September through December were named for their numerical order. The Romans marked special days in red, which may be the origin of our phrase "red letter days."

Answer 1: According to Wikipedia, "The origin of the Gita is definitely in the pre-Christian era." Wikipedia, Bhagavad Gita. Answer 2: It depends upon what you mean by bible for two reasons. One: bible simply means book when translated from Greek Latin. Two: The codex that inspired the writing of the King James Bible of 1611 CE (or AD) allegedly was not written until the Council of Nicaea of 325 CE (or AD) which was based off of at least 50 different bibles from various other early or proto Christian sects. Note that there is also some controversy over whether or not the Codex from which the Catholic/Orthodox/Protestant bible(s) lays claim to is the Codex written by the scribes at the Council of 325CE, because after the death of Constantine there were an additional two codices that briefly appeared, two of three no longer exist in their original form. Thus the Vulgate's verbatim adherence to the Codex (of Sinaiticus [maybe]) written in 325 CE (AD) is questionable. Another reason that the Vulgate is very questionable in authenticity and historical reliability is due to the fact that Constantine did not speak Aramaic or Hebrew, which are the two languages responsible for the writing of the Vulgate... Why would Constantine have the codex (325 CE) written in Latin, only to later pass over and have the Catholic Church base their bible off of the Vulgate??? This implies that whatever was originally written at the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE is possibly not the Vulgate and is possibly not what today's "traditional" Christian Catholics, Orthodoces, and Protestants read from and declare to be "The Bible." However, some particular individuals will deny this question of objectivity as a type of elaborate lie or "malicious fantasy," thus the answer to your question depends solely upon the objectivity, knowledge, and honesty of your source(s) and scholar(s). There is also the Gnostic Bible, often called the Nag Hammadi Scrolls, or Codices, which is named after the upper Egyptian city that the scrolls were buried and rediscovered in. The Nag Hammadi dates back to approximately 80 CE to 400 CE depending upon the date that the original was written on, and the objectivity of the scholar laying claim to which authorship date theory is correct. It is important to understand that the Gnostic Codices definitely predate 400 CE and the Codice of Nicaea 325 CE (Codex Sinaiticus or Vaticanus) due to the fact that many Gnostic texts have been found on in the tombs of individuals, and throughout biblical archaeological sites who were in the affected regions during that era. Such books that were found on citizens of those regions and era can be found in a book compilation titled Lost Scriptures by Bart D. Ehrman, and published by Oxford University Press. Note that the original Nag Hammadi, or Gnostic Bible, has yet to have been discovered which is more than likely due to the harmful edicts passed and policies held by the Papacy throughout the Crusading and Inquisitioning periods of Europe, North Africa and Asia Minor, which is also the reason why the oldest surviving copy of the Gnostic Bible, or Nag Hammadi Codices, was buried in jars in upper Egypt. Therefore, one should also notice that there are different forms of Gnosticism, and that while what is often referred to as Christian Gnosticism is often claimed by primarily Catholic sources to have been conceived approximately around the second or third century CE. However, regardless of whether it is all mythos or fact, the religious schools that inspired Gnosticism, prior to the birth of the Christus, date back to at least 200 BCE- and there are of course Gnostic denominations that survived the atrocities committed by the Papacy that still affirm to Mary being the reincarnation of the goddess Isis which opens up a list of other questions. Also, according to some Gnostic denominations, Christian and non-christian alike, Mary (or Mariam) Magdalene (or "of Magdala") was a priestess who was a member and leader within the proto-Christian religious movement of Jesus Christ (a pseudonym or title, moreso than an actual name), and may have been the bride of the Christ either by per-arrangement or not. Finally note that Gnosticism is religion that draws its philosophies, from some of its own original elements, while culminating itself through various other religious or spiritual vocabularies and doctrines, such as Buddhism, perhaps Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, the ancient Pantheons of Egypt and Greece, etcetera. Of course Catholicism, Protestantism, and Orthodoxy do the same; however, Gnostics traditionally and openly accept this detail and of course have a very interesting explanations for it. Also, there is also the Torah, which is not traditionally referred to as the bible, but is of course a bible in the literal translation of biblo(s) what inspired the string of versions of the Great Bible, Bishop's Bible, Geneva Bible, Gutenberg Bible, King James Bible 1611 and 1864, (possibly) the Codex of Nicaea 325CE depending upon the objectivity of the scholar, etcetera. The oldest Torah dates back less than one millenia ago, of which an Italian expert in Hebrew manuscripts, Professor Mauro Perani, claims to date back to 1155-1225CE (or AD) and is made of sheepskin with measurements of 36 meters by 64cm (or ~39 yards by ~25 inches). Note that this does not imply that Judaism is only less than 1000 years old as there is also a 50 page Jewish prayer book, possibly the oldest surviving piece of Jewish literature, that carbon dates back to approximately 840 CE (or AD if you are Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox or the member of a similar denomination). Finally... there is the Bhagavad Gita which is Book 6 of the Mahabharata, and is composed of 700 Sanskrit verses contained within 18 chapters, divided into three sections with each containing six chapters. The Bhagavad Gita revolves around the historical belief that Lord Krishna, a military leader, spoke to someone named Arjuna at the Battle of Kuruksetra in 3137 BCE (Before the Common Era) that confirms that the Kali Yuga, an astronomical alignment and astrological event began in the year 3102 BCE. Thus, while there might not be a confirmed copy of the Bhagavad Gita dating back to the 3137 BCE- it does not matter much because the astronomical alignment, Kali Yuga described in the BG is evidence of the age of the story. The end of the Kali Yuga that began fifty years after the Battle of Kuruksetra ends in 2025, and if you wish to learn more about the Yugas, I suggest asking a Hindu- preferrable one who is scholarly- on the subject, or reading the Mahabhrata in its entirety. It is important to understand that scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita are not mythos the way that some features of Christianity or Gnosticism are, but are moreso of abstractions of historical events and figures.
