Transcript of 02.10 Medieval Europe and Japan: Module Project

Religion and economics inclined the growth of both medieval Japan and Europe because their histories were formed both the development of trade and important spiritual differences with adjacent groups. “There once was a time when all people believed in God and the church ruled. This time was called the Dark Ages.” ― Richard Lederer
Development of Japan
Different from Europe, in Japan Religion was not a big deal. A lot of of the battles were fought about wealth and power. However later the Japanese revealed Zen, a practice which was focused on a individual understanding and explanation. It exhibited an overall alertness in Japan as well as background and arts. Because of the Mongol invasions, Japanese did not want anything to do with the Chinese and were in such bad conditions that Japan became lonely. Following the Ashikaga period, Japan boomed and there was a great amount of goods and trade. They ended up on excellent terms once again. Quite a few people changed to Christianity to increase trade but this was soon abolished and in the time lapse of 200 years Japan became cut off again.
Feudalism in Japan
Feudalism in Japan was very alike to Medieval Europe, but there still is a difference. The crown three parts of the pyramid were alike, but the lower part was unlike. Japan raised the standing of the peasants more advanced than the merchants for the reason that peasants were accountable for the expansion of their food and essential cargo.
Development of Medieval Europe
Together Religion and Economics played a giant piece in the growth of Medieval Europe. These two things really influenced the escalation of Europe because religion and ritual were very important and trade and economy was a huge part of victory. Religion was the major reason of warfare throughout this time unlike Japan but finished with a grand result. These wars were above all over Jerusalem, the Holy Land, and lasted over 200 years. They brought extra command to the church and opened the pilgrimage routes, growing trade and the use of coin exchange. This led to the urbanization of medieval Europe, which significantly tainted the economy and would ultimately lead to five centuries of Europe’s monetary and cultural authority.

Feudalism in Europe
The feudal system in Medieval Europe altered directly following the ending of the Crusades. Europe put additional importance on trade and on the maintenance of urbanization. It fascinated more merchants and artisans and added a new step in the pyramid of societal hierarchy, the middle class. The new class gave a chance to peasants to prove themselves and to become a higher class.
Magna Carta
The Magna Carta is an authorized document that the King signed giving detailed human rights to the citizens in Europe. The Magna Carta is alike to the Bill of Rights and Constitution of the U.S and gave much more power to the citizens and approved their rights.
There are plenty of differences between the development of Medieval Europe and Japan, but they do contribute to two very significant factors which are Religion and Economy. Together they helped shape both countries into what they are at the moment as well as influencing the way of life.
