In simple economic perspective, we understand that productivity diminishes as a result of a shortage of labor force. The Black Death destroyed people but not the capital or resources available to have a fertile economy. As a result of a shortage of workers’ wages rose in agriculture immediately following the end of the plague and then slowly declined as the population rebounded (Martin, 2008). Contact with animals has been the cause of the worst contagious diseases that has affected humans in past societies. Resistant strains of plague, smallpox, influenza, and others were triggered by infections which first affected domestic animals.
The stationary position of Neolithic villagers limits them to eating only the foods within a reasonable distance of their permanent settlements. Diet played a key role in determining health of ancient peoples, as is evident in the skeletons examined by paleopathologists worldwide. In Greece and Turkey, hunter gatherer skeletons from the end of the ice ages show that the average height of a capacious 5’9” for men and 5’5” for woman. With the onset of agriculture, however, height plummeted and reached a low of only 5’3” for men and a mere 5’ for women. Skeletons excavated in the Ohio and Illinois river valleys show extreme health changes from pre to post agricultural lifestyles.
To avoid this conflict and show that every man had undeniable rights, people needed a system that could distinguish who made the laws from who enforced the laws. However, to do this everyone's input and not just one person. On the other end of the spectrum Bishop Bossuet defended the divine rights of kings. What he called "The Divine Right of Kings" he defended with scripture from the Old Testament in the Bible. In the bible kings were only judged by God.
While both characters want to fight with honor and bring greatness to their name and kingdom, there are differences between the two warriors. Beowulf is known by all, loved by all, and encourage by all, there is not a battle that he cannot fight. Sir Gawain, on the other hand, had to convince King Arthur in order to fight the Green Knight. In convincing the king, he explained that no one would miss him and could die without hurting anyone. During the times of Anglo-Saxons, warriors believed in fate and Beowulf accepted his destiny with honor; this is different from Sir Gawain, as he was christian and did not believe death was his destiny if he died in battle.
In 61 CE, the Romans were able to defeat and conquer Britain. However, in the Battle of Cannae in 216 BCE, they were heavily defeated and somewhat humiliated. This was due to change of tactics and rulers. Rome had a military system that proved to not be successful. They would have a different military leader every day and those leaders were not that well trained nor did not have a vast knowledge of warfare.
One coin type carries the name of St Peter, rather than the ruler. This seems very obviously Christian, but on many of the coins, the final 'I ' of 'PETRI ' takes the form of Thor 's hammer, and some of these coins also have a hammer on the reverse. These coins seem to carry a deliberate message that both paganism and Christianity were acceptable. (norse religion, 2016) In conclusion after Vikings adopted Christianity they benefited from many things like they would not be under attack from Christian countries nearby, they would gave more land to settle on, as they can settle on Christian countries and the main benefit they had after being Christian was that they could trade with Christians, as Christians are not allowed to trade with
Only those who remained blameless and free of sin would reach God’s presence. Salvation in the Old Testament is viewed primarily as a means of going to heaven, which calls for obedience of Gods commandments to be worth before Him. Although this is similar to the New Testament, the New Testament mainly emphasizes on deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ, the son of God, who died to redeem his people from sin and its consequences. Salvation in the Old Testament was mainly based on faith in God (Kärkkäinen 63). For instance, God considered Abraham, who was faithful to him, as a man through whom he would raise a great generation that would please and obey Him.
Fear was a major factor in the increasing power of these empires. Both empires used fear as a way to gain more land, increasing their empire. The Aztecs were feared for their strong warriors and human sacrifices to their gods. The military power of the Aztecs helped them in conquering the surrounding tribes. While this empire was growing, they contracted an alliance with the Tepanec tribe.
Their military/population was very small. This is bad, because if other countries are into war with the Confederacy and they have a larger military than them, they might be able to overpower the soldiers. But like before, the have strong military generals and a strong will to fight. Another disadvantage about the Confederacy was that they had a large amount of land to defend if people attack them. There could be many homes and buildings that the people would have to defend from attacks.
Increased malnutrition is caused by poor diversification of diets such as relying too much on starchy staples. Thus, the consumption of a variety of foods is important for positive health. Malnutrition can be reduced by the consumption of diets having animal sources, vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables as well as nutrient-rich legumes (Arimond and Ruel, 2004; Thompson and Amoroso, 2011). According to the FAO, IFAD and WFP, (2015) about 800 million people do not have sufficient access to calories. A low intake of vitamins and minerals causes about 2 billion people all over the world to suffer from micronutrient malnutrition (IFPRI, 2014).
The early modern world period was from the 15th century to the 18th century. The majority of the population lived in rural cities. Life expectancy was not very long, and the lifespan was twenty-five years old. Diseases, famine, lack of medication, and improper sanitation contributed to the low life expectancy. Diet of the wealthy class consisted of bread, meat, and wine however the lower class’s diet consisted of fruits and vegetable.
