Even though Native Americans excited longer, the history of the United States usually begins with its discovery in 1492 and the first colonies which were founded by European settlers. The settlements all started in 1588 with Britain’s victory over the Spanish Armada which made England the world’s number one sea power. Due to that, they were able to acquire more colonies. This is what marked the beginning of the First British Empire, to which New England also belonged in the beginning. England’s reasons for building the First Empire were commercial and military interests.

In Christianity, the Bishop of Rome, or the Pope, is the leader of the religion. The Pope has had significant influence on the world stage throughout history. The Pope in the early stages of Christianity helped its rapid spread. Through the middle ages, the Pope was just as large of a political leader in Europe as he was a religious leader within Christianity. His influence of the spread of the Christian faith as well as the developments of modern European culture and history makes the Pope and his Papacy one of the most influential and enduring institutions in the history of the world.
The early modern era was a time when empires thrived across the globe. The Western Europeans were not the only ones to construct successful empires either. The Russian, Chinese, Mughal, and Ottoman empires added to this phenomenon. Although these empires share many similarities, they also have their differences. During the time, 1450 CE -1750 CE, European empires in the Americas and their Russian, Chinese, Mughal, and Ottoman counterparts are similar in that they all thrived and united diverse peoples and different in that European empires developed something entirely new, an interacting Atlantic World, while the other empires continued older patterns of historical development.
5. Once sea routes are accounted for, the entire Silk Road network spans 1500 miles. III. Cities like Changan, the capitol of Han Dynasty, China, grew simultaneously with the development of the Silk Road Network. A.
The 16th century was a period of cultural exchange and adaptation. Christopher Columbus 's voyage in 1492 would forever change the world, combining various cultures and ethnicities and opening global trade. Spain and Portugal sent conquistadors and missionaries to this "New World" for wealth and conversion of the inferior natives to Christianity. The conventional belief is that the Spaniards were superior to the Native Americans living in the new world, but in reality societies such as the Incas and Aztecs showed remarkable complexity. These two worlds collided to create a new distinct society.
Additionally, the period witnessed a remarkable progress in literature and art. All in all, Britain became world 's most powerful trading nation and the largest imperial power in the world; more than a quarter of world¬’s population was ruled from The United Kingdom while the Empire was extended to more than 14 million square miles. However, not everything flourished; the Victorian Era was an era of huge contrasts, people enjoyed opulence and wealth, but penury and poverty were the other side of the coin. Both these extremes were equally normal and usual.
The Renaissance can therefore be seen a period of great change and development across Europe. The Roman Catholic Church fought to maintain its power while Europe came in to contact with other religions and Christians themselves began to question the role and dominance of the Vatican. Added to that, were discoveries in all fields including anatomy and astrology and even physical discoveries such as Columbus’s voyage to the New World. It is against this background that some of the greatest works of art were created by some great artists.
Spanish claims to Latin America were based on the Christianizing mission. When Christopher Columbus arrived at the ‘New World’ in 1492 he quickly and forcibly took advantage of the wealth of the Indian tribes; those who refused to hand over their gold and jewels faced brutal punishment of all sorts. In return, Columbus and other Spaniards bestowed the Indians with Catholicism by baptizing them and teaching them the rituals of the religion. Hence, the colonization of Latin America was justified under the guise of spreading Christianity.
After the Fall of the Roman Empire in 476 it was divided into a western and an eastern Empire. The eastern Empire which is also known as the Byzantine Empire, lived on as it was wealthier and better in trade. According to Rietbergen (2006, p.114), Church and State were very closely combined in the Byzantine Empire, which is the first difference of Religion in the two new European Regions. During the Roman Empire Christianity was given higher attention and became one of the leading religions in Europe. However, one must know that Christendom already differed in Latin Christianity, which is west orientated, and Orthodox Christendom, which mostly appears in the East.
The Catholic faith is the most populous religion followed in the world, if the general religions were separated into their respective sects. This connection of 1.142 billion people spread from Europe to Africa and the Americas through a juxtaposed image of spread of religion in the most brutal sense in the mid to late 1400’s. As monarchs of Portugal, Spain, and Italy sent their explorers in search of spices to India, the explorers made an even more valuable discovery, a new world. During the Crusades, the Church was suffering losses against the growing Ottoman Empire.
The Manifest Destiny was the expansion of the United States allowing it to stretch from coast to coast. Americans believed that they were fated by God to expand the nation and make the United States more stronger. The Manifest Destiny was believed to be fated by God because many things were easily handed to the Americans such as winning against the United Kingdom in the War of 1812 , taking over Spain without any big conflict and lastly, the Louisiana Purchase by Thomas Jefferson. Both, Jefferson and the Manifest Destiny, took action to make the United States more
In the late 13th century there was a large movement toward finding new routes by sea to trade with Asian countries. This movement was motivated by the greed of monarchies to accumulate wealth; gain power against rivals; and to spread Christianity. However, the primary motive of exploration was commerce. The Europeans were “starved for gold and silver,” which they needed to purchase goods in Asia, such as spices gems, silks, spices, and other luxuries. As countries, like Spain, set sail in attempts to locate new western trade routes to China, they’ll find what becomes known as the New World, and will have a major impact on the lives the indigenous peoples—Native Americans—through, personal interactions, the transplantation of animals, plants,
There were Spain, England, France, Russia and China expeditions that visited all parts of the Ocean including Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean basin. Europeans were not the only people who explored the larger world. However, what makes the Europeans go on a new world excursion to explore new lands? It is to claim new lands, to make their own empire stronger by obtaining natural resources and to develop new empires.
From 1450 to 1700 the economy of Europe began to majorly change. Mercantilism was on the uprise which meant Europe began to focus more on their trade and commerce. This lead to many individuals to having a hard time gaining wealth because the government was doing everthing on a large scale. Many Europeans were just barely getting by. Then the poor would have to go to the extremes and beg and steal to make money for themselves.
