Transcript of Unit 4: The Early Modern World 1450-1750
father of scholasticism
-emphasized logic and reason taught by Aristotle
-synthesizes logic and faith
centered on a rebirth of the "Classics" & the study of humanism
humanism= the proper study of man IS man paradigm in Europe shifts from "City of God" (divine/supernatural) to the "City of Man" (human nature)
church's view on business changed by Acquinas to justify commerce, trade and business so long as it is "just"
School of Athens
How does it demonstrate Renaissance ideals?
New Directions in philosophy & learning:
Renaissance- "rebirth" in art, thought, manners, sensibilities following "Dark Ages"
Result of re-establishment with Greco-roman texts translated by Christians (preserved by Arabs in post-classical era)
Petrarch: "Father of Humanism"
-priest, latin scholar, poet, writer
-considered with whats effective,
not whats morally right
-came to be known for trickery
and double dealing
Printing press: Johannes Gutenberg
increased availability of written work
In what ways did the Protestant Reformation transform European
within Catholic Christendom
-Gave some kings and princes a justification for their own
independence from the church
and an opportunity to gain the lands and taxes previously held by the church
-Religious difference led to sectarian violence, to war, and ultimately to peaceful coexistence
Successful challenge to the immense prestige and power of the pope and established church
encouraged a skeptical attitude toward authority and tradition
Fostered religious individualism
as people were encouraged to
read and interpret the scriptures
themselves and seek salvation w/o the church
Erasmus and Christian Humanism:
-Best known Christian Humanist
-"the philosophy of Christ"
-meant to show people how to live good lives on a daily basis rather than achieve salvation
-He did not wish to break from the church; just to reform it
-Criticized monks in his work "In Praise of Folly"
-The major goal of Humanism in Northern Europe was to reform Christendom
-Martin Luther's religious reforms led to the emergence of Protestantism
-Christian Humanists believed in the ability of human beings to reason and improve themselves
-They wanted to reform the Catholic Church
-This reform would occur through the development of inner piety, or religious feeling, based on studying the works of Christianity ; not rules and rituals
>Church officials seemed ignorant of their spiritual duties, especially on achieving...
SALVATION-acceptance into heaven
>As a result, obtaining salvation became almost mechanical...like by collecting relics or buying indulgences
>Venerating saints could gain indulgences- release from all or part of punishment for sins
-Church far too interested in political matters as opposed to spiritual
>Between 1450 & 1520 a series of Popes failed to meet the church's spiritual needs. They were more concerned w/ political interests of the Papal States. Julius II "the warrior Pope" even led armies against enemies of the church.
"As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, the soul from purgatory springs!"
-Martin Luther was a monk and a professor
at the University of Wittenberg, where he lectured on the Bible
-Through his study of the Bible, Luther came to reject the Catholic teaching that both faith and good works were necessary for salvation.
-He believed human deeds were powerless to affect God and that salvation came from FAITH alone
"I do not accept the authority of Popes and councils...My conscience is captive to the word of God. Here I stand and I cannot do otherwise. God help me. Amen"
April 18th, 1521
urban middle classes
a new religious legitimacy for their growing role in society
-Common people's expression of
opposition to the whole social order
Less impact on the lives of women
, even though it did stimulate female education and literacy, even if there was little space for women to make use of it outside the family.
Lutheranism became the first Protestant faith!
-Diet/Edict of Worms made Luther outlaw

to divorce his wife, Catherine of Aragon, whom he thought could not bare him a son.
-Pope was unwilling to annul his marriage & Henry turned to England's courts

-The land that the Catholic Church owned on English soil bothered many Englishmen.
-The taxes that they had to pay to Rome did not seem right.
-England est. The Church of England (Anglican) and names the King Head of the Church

The Scientific Revolution was revolutionary because...
...it put an end to the Geocentric theory which had been the dominant view of W. Europe.
...the laws formulated by Isaac Newton showed that the universe was not propelled by angels/spirits but functioned on its own according to timeless principles that could be described mathematically.
...this suggested that knowledge of the universe could be obtained through human reason alone, without divine revelation.
...ABOVE ALL, it was revolutionary because it challenged educated people to question traditional views of the world and humans place in it.
The Enlightenment was revolutionary because...
...it applied a new approach to the conduct of human affairs, one that was rooted in human reason, skeptical of authority, and expressed in natural laws.
This challenged the aristocratic privileges of European society and the claims to authority of arbitrary governments who relied on the "divine right of kings" for legitimacy.
...challenged the authority of established religion, accusing the Church of fostering superstition, ignorance, and corruption.
...it also challenged older patterns of thinking through its promotion of the idea of progress. Human society, according to Enlightenment thinkers, was not fixed by tradition or divine command but could be changed, and improved, by human action guided by reason.
These ideas ultimately underpinned revolutionary movements in America, France, Haiti, and Latin America.
Wrote "Discourse on Method"
which was the concept of mind
and matter; that reason is the
chief source of knowledge.

"Because the mind can
not be doubted, but the

like a clock. Created by
the Deity, but left to
function. Humans left to

Baron de Montesquieu (1689-1755)
-studied history of Ancient Rome
and believed the fall due to the loss
of political liberties
-Championed the idea....separation of powers in which a govt is divided into 3 branches: legislative, executive & judicial
"When the legislative and executive powers are united in the same person...there can be no liberty."
"Power should be a check to power." meaning that each branch should limit the power of the other 2 so no branch becomes a threat to liberty.
Champion of Economic liberty:
-"physiocrats" believed mercantilist ideas are wrong
-"laissez faire" economics believed in free trade with no government regulations
-Smith wrote "Wealth of Nations" which defended free market economy based on 3 natural laws:
1. Law of self-interest: People act for selfish reasons...bakers dont bake for hunger, but for money
2. Law of competition: Forces people to make a better product...bakers must compete with other bakers to make bread better and sell at a lower cost
3. Law of supply & demand: Supply=quantity available
when supply exceeds demand, price goes down while some businesses go out of business until there are just enough to meet demand
**Therefore, Smith said, only a free market economy, where natural laws were free to operate, allowed plenty of goods to be produced at the lowest possible price

Scholars discuss historiography topically – such as the "historiography of the British Empire," the "historiography of early Islam", or the "historiography of China" – as well as specific approaches and genres, such as political history and social history. Beginning in the nineteenth century, with the ascent of academic history, a corpus of historiographic literature developed.
How much are historians influenced by their own groups and loyalties—such as to their nation state—is a much debated question.
6 Degrees of Separation
Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is
six or fewer steps away
, by way of introduction, from any other person, event or thing in the world, so that a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy and popularized by a play written by John Guare.
Therefore, your Unit 4 assessment is to
connect 2 items, four times, in six steps or fewer. You must include vocabulary in the links. You must give an elaborate explanation of each item.
