The Crusades

The Crusades | Royal Chronicle | Scoop.it

The Crusades were a series of wars that European Christians fought for a religious purpose, in attempt to seize holy land and to drive out all the Muslim Turks. Although their effect greatly differed from their original purpose, they still played a very important role in the formation of the history and the modern culture. They did fail, though, in some ways. Also they did not achieve their original purpose they were intentionally striving for. Therefore, many unexpected things, both positive and negative, were the result of the situation. In the end, Europe changed its interest in different directions. Then in 1492, the Muslims were kicked out of Spain. Then, in that same year a team of explorers discovered the New World. Europe decided to leave the rest of the Middle East to the followers of Islam.

Louis IX

Louis IX | Royal Chronicle | Scoop.it

In 1226, Louis the ninth took the rule of France. He was grandson of Philip Augustus, so Louis has success already in his blood. He was devoted to justice, which is exactly what a country needs in a leader: Louis was also a very religious man, which is another plus for France. He wanted to make sure that his country was running smoothly, without flaw. He sent out roving officials to check on local officials. He is also expanding out royal courts to really enforce his plan for justice. Then at the age of 44, the great Louis IV passed way. Within 30 years he was already declared a saint. Clearly he was a very strong, powerful, and holy ruler. Louis, in my opinion, was a great leader. He truly cared about his people, wanted to make them happy, and of course to make his time as ruling successful.

Middle Ages Advancements

Middle Ages Advancements | Royal Chronicle | Scoop.it

During the Middle Ages, there were a lot of advancements that were made in learning. The major achievement was the arts achievement. The Middle Ages had developed the towering stone on their cathedrals that served as symbols of their wealth and religious devotion. Also, gothic churches soared to incredible heights in which made the arts a major achievement in the Middle Ages. Lastly, carvings and stained glass portrayed stones from the bible. These advancements may affect European life in the future in a good way by sending positive remarks. Future European life could easily continue to have stained glass in the windows of their churches and continue to have towering stone as well.

Pope Gregory VI

Pope Gregory VI | Royal Chronicle | Scoop.it

When one is called the greatest medieval popes, anyone could tell that within his lifetime, he must have done great things. In the case of Gregory the 6th, he did spectacular things and then made decisions that affected the church forever. Although most of his ideas and actions were for good, they had quite the opposite effect. Out of many popes, he aroused the most hatred. One of his biggest jobs that he accomplished was banning the practice of the lay investiture. Under this practice the emperor or any person who is not a member of the clergy could present bishops with the ring and staff that symbolized their office. This makes him the greatest because it prevented the emperor from appointing people who were not needed.
