Transcript of 2.10 Module Project
John A. Ferguson
1. How did religion influence the Magna Carta?
Religion influenced the Magna Carta because of the church. The Church was highly influential and controlled basically everything. In Article I they granted to God that the English church would become free and have all its rights and liberties.
2. How did the Magna Carta limit the power of King John?
King John no longer had more rights than anyone else and everyone became equal. For example, he could no longer deny someone their right of justice, he couldn't take people's money for no reason and everyone had to go through a trial or jury to see if guilty. He basically could not control the people anymore and do whatever he wanted.
3. How did the Magna Carta lay the foundation for democracy?
The Magna Carta laid a foundation for democracy because it limited the monarch. No one can be taken to prison without having a trial or proven guilty. Also, they let the people have rights and power kind of like how it is today.
Treatise Written to a Devout Man
1. How much influence do you think pastors had on society during the Middle Ages in Europe? Explain
I think the pastors had some power. They taught ways of Christianity to the public, were excellent speakers. However, since they were know as assistants to the priest, I do think the people listened to the Pope's beliefs more and had more respect for him.
2. What is the mixed life?
Mixed Life is only allowed by the clergy and pastor's assistant and is to guide and teach in the performance of achievements of mercy both physically and spiritually, towards their Christian brothers.
3. To lead the mixed life do you think a prelate or pastor would spend time in a monastery? Explain
I think a pastor would spend time in a monastery because they were teachers who taught and wanted people to get closer to god. They wanted people to get spiritually involved with god and learn more about him.
Joan of Arc, Painting
1. How does this painting show the influence of religion on politics?
This painting shows the influence of religion on politics because the woman is holding a flag that has three angels on it holding books.
2. Do you think the painter of this picture viewed Joan of Arc as a heroine? Explain
Yes, I do think the painter viewed John of Arc as a heroine. The armor she is wearing the flag she is holding, the sword and the happy look on her face all make me believe he viewed her as a heroine. It seems to me that in this painting the victory she saught is won an she is happy about it.
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.
This painting combines the styles the armor she is wearing was inspired during the Middle Ages and the designs or images on the flag represent the Romans.
Trade Routes during the Late Middle Ages
1. How do you think Pope Urban II and the Crusades influenced the trade routes shown on this map?
I think that the routes taken during the Crusades were easier and could be used to trade with other places, therefore they turned it into trade routes
Feudalism in Europe
1. Do you think the social standing of merchants during the Middle Ages helped or hurt the economy? Explain
I think it helped the economy because they worked alone and were able to give materials to the people so they wouldn't have to go elsewhere. Buying materials from somewhere else wouldn't have helped the economy at all.
2. Which cities shown on the map do you think were most affected by ideas from foreign lands?
Which cities were least affected by ideas from foreign lands? Explain.
The cities that i think were most affected by foreign lands were the cities on the coast because of foreign ports and people would have to come in on the coast to reach the land. The cities that were more inland I think were least affected.
3. What cities seemed to benefit the most from trade routes by sea? Explain
The cities that seemed to benefit the most were the cities on the coast. Most trading went by sea and they had control over it. Trade could easily get to them and from them.
2. Do you think church officials had a large amount of influence in the feudal system? Explain
I think they did have a large influence on the feudal system because the land that the king ruled and merchants lived on, was owned by the church officials.
3. In the feudal system, do you think the knights ever felt conflicting loyalties? Explain.
Yes i do think the knights felt conflicting loyalties because they worked hard for the land they earned, yet they had to share the land.
1. Do you think the social standing of merchants in feudal Japan helped or hurt the economy? Explain
Feudalism in Japan
I think it both helped and hurt their economy. It helped because everyone knew what their obligations were and where they stood. But I also think it hurt because everyone was separated into groups and were thought to be better than one another. It kinda wasn't equal.
2. How is feudalism in Japan similar to the feudalism in Europe? How is it different?
They are similar because both are based from the relationships of the lard and vassal, daimyo and shogun. However, they were different. For example, in Japan the peasant owned the land but in Europe the vassals owned the farmland.
3. Do you think feudalism in Japan helped to unify the country.
Yes because it put social order and helped keep control. If it weren't for this, Japan probably wouldnt be how it is today.
Articles of Admonition
1. Based on this excerpt, do you think Buddhism had a widespread influence in Japan? Explain
I think this article did have a widespread influence across Japan. This was written for people to keep peace and not cause any trouble.
2. In medieval Japan, what do you think are some of the attributes of moral behavior?
Being kind to others, wisdom, responsibility, respect, and righteousness would be attributes of moral behavior.
3. According to Ryoshun, what negative influence should his brother try to avoid?
He should try and stay away from bad people and bad friends. he doesnt ant his brother to get involved with trouble especially as a governor.
Religion and economics influenced the development of Medieval Europe and Japan in several ways. In Europe, religion was emphasized and made equal with the Magna Carta. The church got more land and power. Economically, they did not do very well because of the war against France and King John lost money while in power. In Japan, there economy did well. They were successful with trade but sometimes their political relations would affect it.
Religion had an impact on both Medieval Europe and Japan. The Magna Carta shows an impact on Europe. It is a charter written by the nobles that made King John equal to everyone. People gained more rights and King John could no longer do whatever he wanted. Religion did not play as big of a role in Japan as it did in Europe. They did eventually discover a zen which was a practice focused more on personal experiences. People from Japan also converted to Christianity to increase trade.
In Feudal system in Europe, the kings held the highest positions in society. Knight and vassals were given lands by their lords and in return they had to take care of it and keep it protected. Everyone was put into a group and had to do certain jobs. There was also a feudal system in Japan. The Empress held the highest position and the relationship of the daimyo and shogun was similar to the relationship of the vassal and lord. Japan had a very strong economy that remains strong and powerful till this day.
In conclusion, Europe and Japan have many differences but they were both very successful. They had religious and economic backgrounds that changed their society. Religion and economy has shaped them into what we know them as today and influenced many other cultures.
1. Based on this excerpt, do you think trade was instrumental in the spread of Buddhism to Japan?
I think trade was instrumental in the spread of Buddhism. When they would go and trade goods Japanesse priests would go on the pilgrimage which helped spread Buddhism.
2. Summarize the trade relations described in this excerpt. Do you think the geographic locations of Japan, China, and Korea contributed to this trade? Explain.
In this excerpt it explains how Japan, China and Korea traded and the goods they traded. I do think there geographic locations contributed to trade because since they were by or surrounded by water trading by sea was easier and helped them prosper.
3. Based on the geography of Japan, do you think trade from one area of Japan to another could be difficult? Explain
I do think it would be easier. Since Japan is all islands and their close together, they could trade by boat from one place to another.
