Transcript of Chapter 10 Section 3
Which of these elements most strengthened the Abbaside rule?
The Muslim society was the element which strengthened the Abbasid rule because the Abbasid Empire attracted people from a variety of lands which helped to extend the Muslim influence.
What was the role of Muslim women in society?
In the beginning of Muslim society, Muslim women were allowed to work in the feilds with their husbands if they were not wealthy and wealthy women would be allowed to tend to the household and servants. Women were also able to get an education and more free.
Overtime, women became more isolated and could only leave if they covered their faces. The Muslim women were responsible for the children and caring for the house. The role which Muslim women played in society became smaller as the years went on.
How did Muslim Scholars preserve ideas of Greeks and Romans?
Muslim scholars helped preserve Greek and Roman knowledge by collecting and translating scientific and philosophical texts which most did at the House of Wisdom.
What were some Muslim contributions?
Some Muslim contributions in medicine, mathematics, and astronomy included a man by the name of Al-Razi who wrote, the Comprehensive Book, which was a book that combined the knowledge from many different cultures about medicine. Along with other books,
He brought up a theory that patients would recover faster if they breathed cleaner air. Also, a man named, Ibn Al-Haytham wrote a book called, Optics which was used to develop lenses for telescopes and microscopes later on.
What do you think the most signifigant developments were?
During the Abbasid caliphate, the five most signifigant developments in scholarship and the arts, in my opinion are the written encyclopedia called The Comprehensive Book by al-Razi, the perfection of calligraphy, "The House of Wisdom", which was a library where scholars from many
Different cultures went to go and study/translate old texts. Also, the book by Ibn al-Haytham called Optics, which was a book which was later used to develop telescope and microscope lenses. Lastly, the development of poems about nature, the pleasures of life, and love.
What united the scholars of different cultures?
At the "House of Wisdom", scholars developed standards and techniques for research. Translating the old texts into one language: Arabic which united all of the scholars so everyone could read the texts.
