This is an essay for civilization course(Civilization 1: Ancient through Medieval ). Text book: The Making of the West (Chapter 10 and Chapter 11)

As an “autobiographical” record of a spiritual struggle, it also has equally obvious roots in Augustine’s Confessions. We come to this book, then, uniquely well-versed in its literary antecedents. Where do you see the influence of The Aeneid in Dante’s poem? Of Confessions?

Three common types of plagiarism you need to be aware of as a student:

Recycling a paper; “double-dipping”; self-plagiarism: Reusing a paper you have written for a previous course
Copying directly from a source without proper quotations or paraphrasing: When you try to pass something off as your own work
Not using proper citations
According to the Academic Integrity and Academic Dishonesty Handbook:

Your paper should have at least 80% of your own original thought, not “borrowed, paraphrased [or] quoted” from material pulled from the Internet, articles, journals, books, etc. Your thoughts, not someone else’s!
