Transcript of The Effect of Religion on Foreign Relations

The Influence of Religion on Foreign Relations

Muslims (originating in Medina) and the rest of the Arabian Peninsula

7th century AD
Muslim conquests brought about the end of the Sassanid Empire and territorial loss for the Byzantine empire, both which were worn out anyway from fighting each other. Subjects welcomed the takeover due to religious conflicts within their own kingdoms.

Christians and Muslims
11th to 13th centuries
The Crusades started as the Christians fighting against the Muslim takeover
Christians were from Europe and Muslims were from Arabian Peninsula
Israel and Palestine
Between the Muslims and the Jews
It could be viewed as an ethnic conflict, but both sides agree that it is religious
Began in the mid 20th century
Some of the issues in this conflict are:
-Water rights
-Control of Jerusalem
Spanish Settlers and Native Americans
15th to 17th centuries
Spanish settlers were building Catholic missions in the New World
They were trying to convert the indigenous people who lived there to Catholicism
They often used violence and forced the natives to live in the missions
These missions produced food shortages and population decline of the indigenous people
European Wars of Religion
These were a series of wars in Europe from 1524 to 1648
They were all strongly influenced by the religious change of that time period
Native Americans trying to flee from the missions
The Battle of White Mountain in Bohemia
The Muslim takeover
The Christians and the Muslims in the Crusades
So many countries are constantly having problems with each other, so the only thing that has really stayed the same is the constant problems between nations. The idea of "world peace" has also existed for a long time, so that as well is one of the only things that has stayed the same.
The End!
