Crusades and their Personal Effects Negative or Positive?

Crusades and their Personal Effects Negative or Positive? | Middle Ages Newspaper | Scoop.it

As a muslim person living in Jerusalem I feel that this is a anegative step in world history. I feel this way because first of all, I  lost dear friends and family in the first crusade because the Christians won. Second of all, because it was my home and the Christian Knights tried to destroy it, take it away, and control it only to make us convert from the religon we love and have been practicing our whole lives to their Christian beliefs. Also because of the crusades there have been even more further prosicutions such as a brutal campaign  led to expel us from Spain called the "Reconquista" where more than 150,00 people had to flee all because of the cusades. So as you can see the Crusadeds were a negative part of history.

Fredrick Barbossa | Middle Ages Newspaper | Scoop.it

Fredrick Barbossa wanted to capture wealthy northern Italian cities, and southern Italy. He failed to do so and instead of captureing the areas so he thought of a back up plan, or another way in. What he did was arrange for his son to marry the heiress of southern Italy which he then gained power to. But in the end that caused the fall of the Holy Roman Empire because it broke the areas into seperate states. Overall, Fredrick Barbossa did not achieve all that he had hoped for and ended up doing damage.

Advancements in Art and Architecture

Advancements in Art and Architecture | Middle Ages Newspaper | Scoop.it
One of the advancements in learning was in art and architecture. This will effect the future of European lifestyle because one example of architecture would be the "Flying Buttresses" look which was the support of exterior stone that permitted thinner, higher walls and massive windows, bringing light and height to cathedrals. Some examples of art are the stained glass effects, religous paintings, and woven wall hangings. Those are all important because these features will most likely still be used in years to come since its traditional. Another supporting reason to why this is good is because the more appealing or attractive something is the more curious you get about it, which works the same for churches. If you see a beautiful church your most likely to go in and check it out and the more people that go the more the religon is spread.

King Louis IX

King Louis IX | Middle Ages Newspaper | Scoop.it

  King Louis IX became king in 1226. He punished and got rid of non-believers of his religon. He ended serfdom which unified people because now the lower class has more freedom and when you give the lower class freedom their going to listen and support the government. The more people that start to support the government together the more unified they will become together. He also outlawed private wars which helped because then there was more peace so that would bring people together and unify them. He also expanded royal courts which spreadthe government. And even though he set up the Estates General, he made sure that it was not more powerful then the French royalty. In my opinion I believe that Louis IX was a good leader because even though he had to punish people with a different than his, he still did many positive things to unify and expand royal authority.
