Middle Age Schools

In the middle ages, schools were very hard and the teachers were strict. Students sat on hard benches for hours and were expected to memorize everything they heard. In the middle ages, students had to learn the seven liberal arts; arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, music, rhetoric, grammar, and logic. The men mostly went to school. The women were not meant to go to schools because their "natural gift" was raising children, cleaning, and needlework. Advancements in knowledge cam from the muslim religion. The knowledge was translated and passed down to different religions. I predict that this knowledge will keep being passed from school to school and will soon be translated from latin (the christian language) to english.

Crusades

Crusades | medieval times zach conn | Scoop.it

In the first crusade, we Christian knights fought long and hard for Jerusalem. Many of us were killed, but after a bloody battle, we captured Jerusalem. It was a historical day. The date 1099 would be remembered forever. Us crusaders divided the land into four small states. We called them crusader states. Even though we succeeded in this crusade, we failed our other crusades. The Muslim army overran the crusader states an in 1291, they captured the last christian outpost. At the end of the crusades, everything went bad. European crusaders turned their religious fury against Jews and massacred whole communities. Unfortunately, the crusaders failes to control the Holy Land. But the crusaders actually helped monarchs by allowing them to collect taxes to support the crusades. Also, enthusiam from the crusades helped raise papal power.

In Innocent's ruling as pope he mostly wanted to fix the idea of the king electing or choosing the archbishop. He soon claimed supremacy over all other rulers. he excommunicated the kings and put their kingdoms under interdict. In 1209, Phuilip II of France aided Pope Innocent in a crusade. This crusade was against the Albigensians in southern France. In his ruling he also extended papal states, reformed the church courts, and changed the way teh church officials were chosen. In his reign he most definitely achieved all he wanted to do.

Philip IV

Philip IV | medieval times zach conn | Scoop.it

I believe that the best fench ruler was Philip IV. I say this because he did the best job in raising royal power for his kingdom. he raised royal power bycollecting new taxes from the clergy. However, Pope Benifce VIII did not like this. During this fight with the pope, Philip set up the Estates General in 1302. This body had represenatives from alll three estates, or classes of french society. IN this society, there were nobles, townspeople, and the clergy. It never gained the power of the purse, but it did serve as a balance to royal power.
