Top Ten Most Important Events in the Post-Classical Period
Transcript of Top Ten Most Important Events in the Post-Classical Period
The Rise of the Mongols: 1200-1260
Genghis Khan became a very influential leader and conqueror during this time. The rise of the Mongols gave way to a more modern time of the arts and theater in Russia and Asia. Along with this, the Mongols sparked the beginning of modern world history, like we talked about in another discussion board.
The Black Death:1300's
The Bubonic Plague, aka the Black Death, played a big role in the development and progression of post-classical era history. The plague killed a third of the population in Europe, was spread and helped defeat the Mongols, and dominated political systems. The political systems changed because the cost of labor rose, which caused the higher class to begin to lose wealth. It also played a part in the death of government officials who became infected.
The Silk Road
The silk road was obviously very prominent in life, the spread of culture, and even the spread of disease. This played a key role in the post-classical time period.
The Crusades: 1095-1435
The Middle East became more sophisticated than Europe. The Christians brought back silk, spices, and gold to Europe which created a want and desire for more. This sparked trade and commerce within Venice and Genoa because they were a common place between Europe and the Holy Land.
The Migration of the Nomadic People
The Role of Women
The Role of women was not necessarily an event, but it was very influential. The role of women changed in various ways such as their importance in certain aspects of life increased, they affected culture through new practices (foot binding), and they were often storytellers who carried on the culture from previous times.
The Division of the Christian Church: 600 C.E
The church in general was a very influential symbol in this era. The Mongols, Europeans, and many others had their own ways of destroying or preserving the church.
The nomadic people were often known for their constant migration from place to place. With this movement, came the spread of new culture, technology, and the well-known plague. This was very influential and had positive and negative impacts on the world around them.
Feudalism: 1066 C.E
Unlike the caste system, Feudalism was not based on rebirth and religion. The Feudal system was more of a means of labor and separation between classes. This was one of the key systems in the post classical era because serfs, lords, and nobles were very common.
The Discovery of the West: 1492
The West is a very dominant area in the world today, and would not be this way if it was never found. It introduced new goods and ideas which helped advance the east as well.
The Gold Road: 7th Century
The Turquoise Road: 700 C.E
These two significant roads helped spread gold, turquoise, and culture in the America’s, Africa, and back into Europe and Asia.
