Document C: Joan of Arc
Document A: Magna Carta
Document F: Feudalism in Japan
02.10 Module Project-History
This painting shows the influence of religion on politics because in one hand Joan is holding a flag with angels on it. This would represent religion. Joan is wearing armor and holding a sword. This would represent politics.
Yes, I think the painter would view Joan of Arc as a heroine because Joan looks as if she had just won a war or accomplished something great. I think that every one including the painter of Joan always had looked up to Joan.
The painting combines the style of ancient Greeks and Romans with the armor she is wearing, the angles on one flag, and the writing on the other flag.
Religion had influence on the Magna Carta because the church had a large say in the House of Lords.
The Magna Carta limited the king of three important rules.

The king couldn't collect any more taxes unless the people agreed to do so.
The king could no longer judge a criminal by how he thinks he should be judged. The criminal had the right to be tried by his equals.
The king now had to obey the laws of England just like everybody else.
The Magna Carta laid the foundation for democracy by
Creating the system of checks and balances
Established rights for eveyday people
It influenced the Bill of Rights, United States Constitution, and other documents that protected the rights of citizens
In my opinion, the social standing of merchants in feudal Japan helped the economy greatly. Merchants traveled from place to place selling and buying goods that people demanded or desperately needed. The social standing of merchants in feudal Japan helped the economy in such way that if there were no merchants, people would be traveling to other countries to buy the goods themselves. The social standing of merchants greatly helped the economy and they were definitely used a lot.
Document F: Feudalism in Japan
Thousands of miles apart, Japan and Europe both had many similarities. To start, both Europe and Japan's systems were based on the dependence between lords and vassals. In both places, Lords would commit land to the vassal in return for a large deal of service from the vassal. In Japan, Lords were indicated as Shogun, and vassals were referred to as daimyō. To have warfare between different lords and vassals was very common in both Europe and Japan. In both Europe and Japan, lords will center their castles on the surrounding land they own. Both systems will hire knights and warriors to protect from surrounding enemy. In Japan, knights and warriors were called samurai.
How was feudal Japan and Feudal Europe different?
How was feudal Europe and feudal Japan similar?
In feudal Europe, lords owned peasants, but in feudal Japan, peasants owned the lands that they farmed. Europe had a king, and Japan had an emperor. Feudal Japan lasted about 500 years and feudal Europe lasted about 1,000 years.
Document F: Feudalism in Japan
Document F: Feudalism in Japan
In my opinion, feudalism did not help unify the country. I don't think that feudalism would help the people work together. Merchants have the lowest authority and I don't think that they feel they could become much more.

I think Buddhism did have a widespread influence in Japan. In the excerpt it says, "...in all your activities, be they civil or military, and never fall into negligence." This shows me that Buddhism was in every part of their lives.
"In what ways did religion and economics influence the development of medieval Europe and Japan?"
Document G: Articles of Admonition, Excerpt
Religion and economic influenced the development of medieval Europe in many different ways. Religion played a major role in shutting off all new ideas such as science and supporting war. Religion supported arts and literature. This made Europe advance dramatically in medieval times with new schools and a better education. The church in medieval Europe became omnipotent during the middle ages and pretty much controlled every aspect of European lives. They controlled everything from marriage to the Crusades. Economics influenced medieval Europe in many ways also. Most of Europe was comprised in Feudalism. Feudalism held back the expansion of Europe because people in the lower class had no way of advancing their power. In medieval times the king had a lot of power but the pope ruled over the king. The merchants and peasants were in the lowest class and never really had any way of advancing their power or authority. They didn't have much say at all. Knights in medieval times were middle class and could advance themselves into higher authority if the lord aloud it.
Medieval Europe
"In what ways did religion and economics influence the development of medieval Europe and Japan?"
Medieval Japan: Religion
Religion did influence the development of medieval Japan. The religion of Japan in medieval times was Buddhism and was forced upon Japanese people. Buddhism was forced into every area of a Japanese life. It was involved in war practices and every day social life.
Medieval Japan: Economics

Medieval Japan was also under Feudalism and also had different classes. The emperor had the highest authority and the merchants had the lowest authority.
