The Carolingian Renaissance was a period of cultural activity in the Carolingian Empire that occurred from the late eighth century to the ninth century. The Carolingian Renaissance reached for models drawn from the example of the Christian Roman Empire of the 4th century. The renaissance showed an increase of literature, writing, the arts, architecture, jurisprudence, liturgical reforms, and scriptural studies. But yet the renaissance wasn’t a true revival because it was limited by the clergy while the rest of the Carolingian society followed. With Charlemagne at the helm of the Carolingian Empire, it allowed him to make a lot of decisions regarding religion, which he knew the clergy would approve on.
Spanish Colonization of North America Spanish colonial efforts in the sixteenth century forever changed the culture of several societies in North America. Led by Spanish conquistadores, missionaries and the Monarchy of Spain, colonial efforts in North America were motivated by two main goals. First, Spain wanted wealth and knew that the New World would offer wealth through trade and the land’s rich resources. Second, Spain believed that the spread of Christianity to the Americas was their religious duty because the people of the Americas had not yet heard the word of god. While they certainly accomplished their goals, it is no secret that the Spanish colonial efforts in North America were tyrannical and caused lasting changes to several cultures that call the Americas home.
The Baroque Movement in Northern Europe and Italy Artists of Rome and of Northern Europe shock viewers with emotionally-profound works using Baroque art style. The Baroque movement has been interpreted differently between Northern Europe and Italy. The works produced by Northern Europeâ€™ s most prolific artists leave religious approbation open to scientific interrogation and, most importantly, remind us to live in happiness. Meanwhile, artists appointed under the will of the Catholic Church (in Italy) are producing marvelous works-intended to strike emotion and feeling through spiritual cognition. I was fortuitous to have witnessed some of the most prolific art of our time spanning from Northern Europe to Italy.
The early 1500’s saw the Laws of the Indies introduced in order to help Christianise the indigenous natives, a motivational tactic behind Spain’s fight for colonial expansion. Upon their failure, New Laws were implemented in the mid 1500’s, in order to provide protection to the existing native population, but were met with opposition from both natives and Spanish colonists. This setback was perhaps the most damaging to the Empire’s success, however, the most prominent was
Jerusalem was significant to the crusaders because it was an area of material opportunity. In medieval times people made pilgrimages not only to Holy places but also to Holy relics. The westerners saw Jerusalem as an opportunity to acquire such relics to sell or show off back home in Europe. A more ambitious material motivation for the noblemen and higher ranking knights could have been the position as ruler of Jerusalem, and ownership of other lands conquered. If the crusade was successful a potential power vacuum would open up in the East for the determined wishing to better themselves.
There were many factors that aided the outbreak in 1455, however I believe that these factors were all results of Henry’s inadequacies as king, or could have been prevented if Henry was a more suitable ruler. There are long term causes that could have had an impact on war in 1455. We could blame the shift in power towards the nobility. Certainly in the early 14th century with rulers such as Edward II (who was murdered by nobles), this became prevalent. His successor Edward III managed to stabilize this relationship, by creating crusades in France, focusing their energies into conquests which began the 100 years wby w05anettletonar.
The Renaissance (meaning rebirth) was a time period in Europe following the Middle Ages with a revival of interest in the classical learning and values of Ancient Greece and Rome. The Renaissance began in the late 14th Century, reached its peak in the late 15th Century and early 16th Century, and ended later on in the 16th Century (Italian Renaissance). Religious paintings played a big role in the Renaissance. During this time of cultural rebirth, artists would try to paint scenes of the development of Jesus Christ, while also incorporating hidden symbols in the painting. Scenes of Christ’s life was desired in Catholic Churches, which triggered a large demand for religious paintings as the Renaissance progressed.
Noah Glaser IAH 201 Section 009 Dr. Magee T.A. : Russell Stevenson At the time of the Spanish American War the United States went from relative isolation to increased global involvement because of wanting to Americanize the world and having commercial interests abroad. The consequences of this increased global involvement on American society were increased levels of racism towards Asians, specifically Japanese-Americans, and the United States establishing itself as a world power that was attempting to make the world a better place. The time of the Spanish-American War was an interesting period in history for the United States. The nation as a whole was very optimistic about the future due to the U.S becoming more influential around
Despite the fact that Christians could not follow these simple rules, they would result in punishment and they were demoralized as humans, treated like crap and persecuted for their belief in God. Little did Rome know that Christianity would change Rome, resulting in part of Rome's downfall and in the later years being known as the center of the Christian world. As time went on, the Christian thoughts would continue to spread. "Christian ideas were already in being, thanks to the Pax Romana, to the efficiently organized and well-policed trade routes, to the political unity of states within the empire, and to the growth of universal religions such as Stoicism and the Oriental cults." Once Christianity started to spread, it would start to impact more than just themselves.
In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, a large literature presenting a distinctive Renaissance individualism surfaced. With individualism and the impulse interest was enthusiastically refined. The doubts of people started to be replaced with doubted faith. “The spirit of individualism to a certain degree incited the Protestant revolt, which, in theory at least, embodied a thorough application of the principle of individualism in religion” (Kreis, 2000). During the 1400- 1517, the conditions of the church changed.
