AP: Europe in the 13-1400s AD
Horrible 1300s
Disaster: Constantinople Falls
-In 1453, a long weakened Constantinople falls to Ottoman Turks

-As a consequence, thousands of educated Byzantines flee to Italy, sparking the Renaissance

-Also, Western Europe is now cut off from the East. THEY WILL HAVE TO FIND ANOTHER WAY TO GET YUMMY SPICES
Orban's Cannon
-A "rebirth" of art and culture- literacy increased and wealthy nobility "patronized" artists (Da Vinci, Rafael, Michelangelo, etc)

-Increased interest in the works of Greeks + Romans

-Largely based in the competing city-states of Italy, later spreads to the rest of Europe
-Europeans motivated to sail for two reasons: trade wealth and evangelism

-At first, primarily Portugal and Spain in competition to access India/China

-New technology (Caravel) made long distance sailing possible
-1492, Columbus reaches Americas, giving Spain a massive head start

-Vasco de Game sails around Africa to India in 1497
Black Death Hundred Year's War Babylonian Captivity
Black Death: Weakens Feudal system as peasants now have negotiating power (less of them)- salaried work and a middle class emerges

Hundred Year's War: The emergence of the longbow weakens the role of knights

Babylonian Captivity: Weakens trust in Catholic Church as Pope is seen as just another political figure
Final Question
-Tomorrow, we will meet the Ming Dynasty in China and see that they had a far greater fleet than any European country

-Why is it that you thing Europeans made it to the New World first? Also, why was it Europeans that discovered China and not the other way around?
