Middle Age Art is Almighty!

Middle Age Art is Almighty! | History Editoral: Ali McDonald | Scoop.it

During the High Middle Ages art and architecture flourished greatly! One very unique type of art is the gothic style. In the gothic style a key component is called flying butresses. This is an exterior of stone that supports and high walls with massively large windows. These bring excellent light and height to the ever so unique cathedrals. I predict this aspect would help assist Europeans as they advance because it would help to understand the historical background that has evolved behind the name "gothic art" such as the time period (1530's) and the rude and barbaric style. In addition, other types of art in this high middle age time include stained glass, religious paintings,and woven wall hangings. These three art types could greatly influence the Europeans in the future to reveal the stories and factual information behind each type of art. All in all,  the High Middle Ages art is beatiful and elegant that reveals stories that can help the future generation solve mysteries and disputs through this art.

Fantastic France!

Fantastic France! | History Editoral: Ali McDonald | Scoop.it

I believe with no doubt in my mind that France had far better royal power that England and helped shape the United States into the powerful nation it is to this day. The primary reason I strongly feel this way is because of the excellent election of Hugh Capet for the French throne. By choosing Capet as King he slowly made France into a hereditary throne. After Hugh Capet passed away his throne title was taken by a member in his family. This created France into a stable and established country. In addition, Over 300 years they added great amounts to the land, they won support of the church, and created an everlasting bureacracy which greatly helped with France's taxes. By having a proper money income France was able to supply there people with plentiful needs and necessities. The second definite reason I feel France had much more superior royal power as compared to England is because in 1179 Phillip Augustus was elected to the King's throne. Prior to this superb election, many great aspects began to occur. For example, Phillip Augustus granted charities to many new towns. This greatly helped keep peace within town regions. In addition, Phillip Augustus introduced a national tax and secured royal land holdings. This helped gain control over English-rule and bring a steady income from the residents in France. All in all, France is far better then England due to the acts of two major Kings; Hugh Capet and Phillip Augustus. They established France into a desirable country and clearly showed the United States what it needs to be a sustainable Country! We learned to tax our citizens, created a finacial system, and even created laws and charters to keep solidity in our Country.

Terrifying Crusades Impact Innocent Muslims!

Terrifying Crusades Impact Innocent Muslims! | History Editoral: Ali McDonald | Scoop.it

As a muslim living in Jerusalem I don't feel secure or remotly safe due to the paralyzing agony of the crusades in my everyday life. Many unrecognizable pilgrims are making their way into our neighborhoods. I'm not quite sure whether to be nervous or hopeful. Luckily, in 1070 my tribe the Seljuks took possession of all of Jerusalem. That has been the only happy thing in my life for many petrifying years. 

The pigrims ,however, are insulted and plundered. Enthusiasm is heard by many people. The crusades then captured the Turkish and defeated a massive army while fighting there. But, now the crusades are headed for us in Jerusalem. I feel incapable. I feel naive. I feel weak. I sit here and just wait until the crusades come barging into Jerusalem. But,  we need to fight back. We have to stay alive.

The man, the myth, the legend... Pope Gregory!

The man, the myth, the legend... Pope Gregory! | History Editoral: Ali McDonald | Scoop.it

I believe that Pope Gregory was a successful and honorable Pope that has greatly influenced theHoly Roman Empireof the High and Late Middle Ages. Pope Gregory is known for many renowned aspects but, one of which was founded monasteries in Sicily,Rome, and St. Andrew which are all in present dayItaly. By creating these highly essential monasteries he found a love for the church and become a beloved monk. This greatly helped the church reform and be established into an irristiable place or worship for the Middle Ages. This has helped draw people into the church which has created a bigger society. In addition, Pope Gregory helped the sick and the poor. He worked very hard to alleviate the suffering and stress of the people in shelters and food for refugees as well plague and flood victims. By knowing Pope Gregory has a good and pure heart it gives me a great sense of the love and care he put into creating a successful religion. Pope Gregory used all his love and effection into making a strong a desirableHoly Roman Empireand church. To this day, the church and our overall society have felt the effects of Pope Gregory. Many aspects such as stability and income wouldn’t be near as secure as they are today without Pope Gregory. Lastly, Pope Gregory shaped the medieval papacy. Papacy means the office of the pope. He fought corruption and negligence. This helped Gregory to stop the fighting and establish an exposure of peace within the religion. To conclude, Pope Gregory established successful monasteries, he helped the sick and poor, and lastly shaped medieval papacy.
