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.

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.

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.
More importantly, the population grew due to higher fertility rates and lower mortality ones. 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 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. This polymaths would have had opinions shaped by the discoveries and developments of the time, but would have depended on the Church to commission and pay for their work.

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. Meade supports this by saying, “The Crown utilized this system of rewards to encourage the settlement and further conquest of the New World.” In this case, we see how the Catholic Church was used as a moral defense in order to gain the
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.
