Advancements in Learning

Advancements in Learning | The Middle Ages | Scoop.it

    Many major advancements were made in learning. Such as, universities. The first universities had been terrible they were only rented rooms with hardwood benches. There were also times that you had to wake up and switch class, like a complete schedule. Although, the main problem was that the universities only taught certain subjects. So once you had finished a subject at one university you'll have to go to another in order to learn the next subject. Once time started progressing most things from before had stayed the same, but more people had started learning because Muslim Spain, Jewish, and Christian scholars translated much of Aristotles texts as well as other Greek thinkers. There was controversy between the Church and Aristotles texts though. Which is how scholatism played a huge role in universities. In greater time I believe that the universities will develop into many buildings that are owned by their founders, but also include all subjects necessary for certain expertise. This advancement in learning will be better for people than all others.

No Hope

No Hope | The Middle Ages | Scoop.it

   Fredrick II was unsuccesful during his reign. By the end his region was left in ruins. Fredrick II was involved greatly in Italy. He had never completely gotten support of any popes and just like his grandfather he failed to subdue the cities of Northern Italy. Which made him less powerful to many people that believe in faith. Also, these two things took up a lot of time from Fredrick II and his duties as an emperor. Therefore, German Nobles were growing apart. Which had reflected badly upon the emperor. On top of that, Germany wasn't going to be a nation-state for a much longer time than England and France. This is something that makes Germany look much less powerful than it had before. Popes were so against Fredrick II that they teamed up with France to overthrow Fredrick's heirs. After these events chaos occurred and rivals were battling for power. Italy as a whole rattled Fredrick II. Now, Fredrick II had been up to his head in Italian things and hadn't been focused on German things. This just looks like Fredrick II has not focused on his country, and is an unfit leader. At that point everything had been over and Fredrick II reign was unsuccessful.

The Hardships of My Life

The Hardships of My Life | The Middle Ages | Scoop.it

   I just got shipped back from the first crusade and it was chaotic. It's traumitizing to go through that with the Christians. Although, if I had died out on that battlefield I would be forgiven of my sins by God. This is because I am Muslim and was fighting for the the right people in the crusade. This crusade accomplished nothing for us Muslims because many Muslims died and still the government was unstable. The worst thing to think about is that we fought and fought, yet still we didn't get much out of it. The only thing that we got as Muslims is the satisfaction that we kept them safe. I think that crusades are pointless and have negative impacts on Muslims as a whole.

Fighting for Power

Fighting for Power | The Middle Ages | Scoop.it

   I believe that the monarch Hugh Capet of France expanded royal authority and laid the foundations for the United States. This King made the throne a hereditary. Meaning that now the throne gets passed down from father to son. This dynasty lasted 300 years, which shows a stable government. By showing the stable government it shows how powerful you can be if you have one. Also, the people trust the changes that were made to expand royal authority. The Capetians were intelligent and found ways to add to their land. For example, they played rivaling nobles against eachother. This showed the trickery they displayed, and provided ideas for trickery to develop for now. The most predominant change that was made was the building of a bureaucracy. This change brought the structure of companies today. The last thing that came into play was that the Church supported them. Other kings like Henry IV of England tried to get power over the clergy rather than work with them, which hurt his royal authority. The Capetians never pushed their power, and this made them look more powerful rather than less. The Capetians throne dynasty expanded royal authority and laid the foundations for United States.
