Editorial on King Phillip II

Editorial on King Phillip II | History chapter final projects | Scoop.it
King Philip II the second of France was the greatest king of this section. He greatly expanded royal authority and laid foundations for united union states. King Philip II's intelligence helped him expand royal authority. He quickly gained the backing of the middle class by appointing middle class government positions. He did this because he knew he would have more power as the royal leader without involving many nobles in government. He also introduced a national tax for all people to pay to the royalty, not feudal lords. He also exercised his royal strength in creating a powerful army. Which he would then use to expand the borders of France and show that he was a force to be reckoned with. His actions clearly set up the framework for the future rulers of France to follow. As if following in his footsteps, king Lewis IX also did much to expand royal power. He did this by making the royal government more efficient and centralized. Then king Philip IV, showed similar traits when he taxed the clergy, the had the pope killed and took over religious control in all of France. Clearly, the kings that followed king Philip II were influenced by the footsteps that he left behind as a ruler, as were the future united union states.

An Editorial on Medieval Universities

An Editorial on Medieval Universities | History chapter final projects | Scoop.it
The introduction of universities in the high medieval ages was a large and beneficial step forward in terms of civilization. These universities allowed mostly men to pursue a whole new path of life that used to be accessible by only scholars and clergy. Many men found this appealing for now everyone wanted to be in the church, become a night, work as an apprentice, or work in the fields. So the general restricted paths of life made these universities very successful. Because of this, these universities opened society up to being able to write, read, and have a greater understanding of medicine, law, or science. This consequently brought out a more intelligent generation of people which swung civilization in that direction, we can still see how these universities affect life today in the way most people go to school then college.

The Black Plague

The Black Plague | History chapter final projects | Scoop.it
There were many negative effects of the Black Plague, or as it was referred to as the Black Death in the Middle Ages. One of the most obvious effects is that it killed 5 to 6 million people, about one in three people died. This also created other many other effects. For instance, when people got this disease they instantly went to the church for help, and when they went for gods help and died, people began to lose their faith in the church. This happened even more drastically when the priests and monks died too. Also, when the farmers began to rapidly die as a result of the plague the cost of food went sky high which hurt the economy in a terrible way. Also the plague caused violence, people naturally looked for something to blame, because of this, people began to blame and persecute the Jewish people. Also, people used these bodies to spread disease as a form of biological warfare. People began to be more and more skeptical of each other and relations between people in society. This created so many barriers between the social classes, especially the rich and the poor. Clearly, there were many consequences of the Black Plague, it was a very controversial time in history.

Editorial on Pope Innocent III

Editorial on Pope Innocent III | History chapter final projects | Scoop.it
The pope, Innocent III, was the most successful pope and he did succeed everything he had plan to. He brought the church to its most powerful state. When he would clash with the powerful emperors of the time, like emperor Fredrick II, he would typically win. Then when an uprising to reform the church arose from the Albigensian's, he launched a crusade against them and quickly put down the uprising. Also, after he died, the church quickly fell from power, this means that he was clearly the deciding factor in keeping the church in its greatest form of power. Pope Innocent III was overall very successful at achieving everything he had hoped to do, like bring the church to its supreme power possible, winning disagreements with emperors, and putting down an uprising that would disempower the church. He was very successful in all of these cases.

A (probable) Insight of The Crusades

This is getting unbearable. Every few years or so these so called 'Christian knights' attack our sacred city of Jerusalem claiming that it is theirs to take and that we do not belong here. They storm our walls and throw us out of our homes, just to lose control and attack again to conquer our city over and over. Many pepper have died as a result of these holy wars, as a Muslim citizen, I am getting fed up with this brutish behavior on the Christian Empire's part, they are acting like over-powered control freaks that are simply swinging their axes around simply because they can. This is like we are taking a huge step back in society, we need to move away from these barbaric ways of war and plunder and attempt to live in peace or simply avoid each other. This is our home and we refuse to leave for these crusaders.
