    This one should do it:

    1.) Plato would probably approve of me.
    2.) I preserved one of the world's great stories.
    3.) I am the bane of Elam

    Correct! Ashurbanipal, founder of the Royal Library at Ninevah, was the closest thing the Assyrians ever had to a philosopher-king. His library preserved an anthology of the stories known as the Epic of Gilgamesh, the oldest surviving heroic epic. His most notable campaign was the conquest of the Elamites, whose cities were destroyed (and their territory later occupied by the Medes and Persians).

    This is the correct answer, well done.

    Protestantism is said to have begun with Martin Luther's 95 theses. More than 800 million people follow it worldwide. It rests on 5 'solae' or statements of difference in principle from Roman Catholicism, which are phrased such as "by faith alone", "by scripture alone", etc. The wealthy families of the USA are nearly all protestant families.
