Transcript of Decline of Feudalism and the Black Death
Killed 1/3 of Europe's population
-Universities lost students and professors

Church less powerful and wealthy
Jews were blamed and persecuted for poisoning wells. Effects of the Black Death The End of Feudalism Nobles became weaker, and the kings took back their land and power.
Because kings took back power, Centralized government was established. Black Death Spread
Spread throughout trade routes
Caught by italian merchants who brought it back with them
Things that the crusaders stole carried germs
Rats on ships
Throughout families Reasons for: christian pilgrims being attacked, pope wants to unite christian churches, and to take back the holy land
1st crusade: 70,000 muslims died, jews burned alive at the stake, crusaders won.
2nd crusade: Battles at Attalia and Dorylaeum, Saladin (muslim leader) won. Europeans shocked.
3rd crusade: To take Jerusalem, peace treaty, 2700 prisoners.
4th crusade: Crusaders attack the city of Zara and Constantinople. They were ordered to attack the Muslims, but not Zara. No winner. Christians kill most people. How the Crusades Affected Feudalism Because of the crusades, serfs decide to leave there manors, to fight. Once they are done fighting most don't come back. Because there is no one to work on their manor, the lords decided to leave to fight. Trade is now increased because more people leave the manors and travel.
