Transcript of World History 2.10 Module Project
1) How does this painting show the influence of religion on politics?
It shows Joan of Arc holding a banner with three saints on it. This shows us that even in war and in their defense systems the church had great influence.
2) Do you think the painter of this picture viewed Joan of Arc as a heroine? Explain.
Yes, I do. It looks like the painter was portraying her to be a victor holding up her sword and their banner to prove the victory.
3) How does this painting combine the style of the ancient Greeks and Roman artists with that of the artists of the Middle Ages? Give examples.
You can tell it combines the two styles by the Greek-like armor Joan wears and by the Romanesque pictures on the flag she bears.
1) How do you think Pope Urban II and the Crusades influenced the trade routes shown on this map?
They found many of these routes while traveling. I think they influenced these routes by either making new, better ones or forcing others to find new routes in order to avoid the Crusades.
2) Which cities shown on the map do you think were the most affected by ideas from foreign lands?
I think cities on the coasts were more affected by foreign ideas than the more inland cites because most of these foreign influences came from sailors and the sailors didn’t really have much reason to travel inland.
3) What cities seemed to benefit the most from trade routes by sea? Explain.
The cities that lay on the coasts because they were able to become major places of trade; and if you control the trade routes you have a lot of power and can make large profits (because now you're the manufacturer and everyone will come to buy goods from you).
1) Do you think the social standing of merchants during the Middle Ages helped or hurt the economy? Explain.
The social standings of merchants in the Middle Ages helped the economy greatly. I say this because without the merchants creating the supply for the demand people would’ve began to travel out of Europe to the more prosperous countries looking for the things that merchants were bringing.
2) Do you think church officials had a large amount of influence in the feudal system? Explain.
Yes, I think they did. Since the church owned land, the king ruled over it, and (like the king, nobles, and lords) others worked the land for them, it wasn’t really their land—not fully atleast.
3) In the feudal system, do you think knights ever felt conflicting loyalties? Explain.
Yes, definitely. The knights, though honorable and held to certain standards, stripped down were just ‘guns-for-hire.’ They worked, or rather protected certain areas/people, for a wage of some sort; whether it was land, money, etc., it was still just a wage. I think that some knights were just looking for the best offer at times, and sometimes they had to choose between loyalty to someone they respected greatly and a better offer with job benefits.
1) How did religion influence the Magna Carta?
I think religion influenced the Magna Carta greatly—it shows in the very first part of the document where there nobles who wrote it stated, ‘…Know that we, at the prompting of God and…for the glory of holy Church…and out of our good will have given and granted to the archbishops, bishops, abbots, priors, earls, barons … these liberties written below to hold in our realm of England in perpetuity…’
2) How did the Magna Carta limit the power of King John?
The Magna Carta limited the Kings power by making it so he couldn’t just put people in jail and collect money from them without a legit reason. It took away the power that, before, let the king lock up whoever he wanted to and took his power over money [or taxing] unless, once again, there was a legit reason.
3) How did the Magna Carta lay the foundation for democracy?
The Magna Carta laid the foundation to the development of democratic government by establishing a council, and by limiting the power of the Monarch.
