When Zaragoza was being invaded, Rodrigo led an army of Muslims and Christians to help protect his new ruler. Though he ultimately failed in his endeavor, Rodrigo did not fret, despite being banished once again, he attracted many followers to him, and eventually he had attracted a large army to his cause. He took his army and successfully assaulted the city of Valencia, predominantly populated by Muslims. With such a sense of equality, his subjects loved him and would do pretty much anything for
Advanced Muslims taught Europeans many different concepts. For example, Crusaders learned about how to advance their warfare tactics in order to succeed during battles. Europeans achieved different advancements because of them. Many people believe that Muslims are the reason why gunpowder came to Europe. They had advancements in medicine, which helped during fights if someone got hurt during wars; there were advancements in architecture, which was positive because they were able to build better castles.
The emotion and determination that Henry used was a great way to influence the public to go to war. Pathos was Henry's best form of persuasion in his “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech because it helped convince the Convention to go fight against the British in 1776. Speaking to people who love their country about the good and bad incomes and outcomes of the war was their biggest motivation. As I asked before, how effective could it be to emotionally persuade your peers to fight? By the looks of Henry's achievement, it was very
Columbus comes across as deeply religious, strategic, and politically ambitious. Firstly, Columbus comes across as deeply religious based on the way he acknowledges God for bestowing on him myriad journey mercies that led to a successful voyage. Additionally, since he knew Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand II had strong ties with the Catholic Church, Columbus tactfully introduced the idea that the numerous native peoples he had found constituted a prime ground for Christian conversion and expanding the monarchy’s political jurisdiction. Secondly, Columbus is highly strategic, starting with the way he throws in political and religious ideas to the Spanish rulers, trying to demonstrate that the Indies were ready for conquering by Europeans.

The Islam religion was in charge of most of the Iberian peninsula, however neighboring European countries pushed back when the Muslims tried to advance more in Europe. These neighboring countries took the peninsula from the Muslims in 1250, turning it Christian. They left one kingdom to remain Muslim and that was Granada. In 1480, the Catholic Monarchs prolonged Catholicism in their kingdoms with the Spanish Inquisition. After both the Reconquista and the Inquisition, Catholicism spread throughout Spanish politics and culture, making it the most widespread religion in Spain with seventy to seventy-five percent of the population following it.
His speech was so amazing and he had such great traits that he ended up convincing 120 mutineers to go into battle with him. Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain provoked a decision for the mutineers that they probably would never have done if they didn’t hear his speech. After Chamberlain’s powerful speech he had convinced all but 6 of 120 men to rejoin the battle and fight alongside Chamberlain himself and help out the North in their battle. In the text on page 8 of Killer Angels it states, “ It is the idea that we all have value, you and me, we’re worth something more than the dirt”(Shaara 8). This reveals that all of the mutineers have a purpose no matter where they came from.
Medieval Europe was a time of war and conflict between different peoples. One of the most important military endeavors of the time was called the Crusades, which was a campaign of Christian attempts to take Jerusalem from the Muslims, who occupied it at the time. Spread over several hundred years, many bloody battles were fought over the holy city. The Crusades involved the two largest religions on the continent and impacted a massive amount of people. The battles irreparably changed the lives of everyone they touched, turning peasants to knights and nobles to slaves.
The most effective way to do this is by using pathos. So he uses powerful sentences such as “America was targeted for attack because we’re the biggest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world.’’ , “Terrorist attacks can shatter steel , but they cannot dent the of American resolve.” He also uses the word “our” many times in order to cause a feelings of unity among the nation. He then tells what has already been done to help solve the problem of 9/11. By doing this he gives a sense of relief to his audience. Finally he quotes Psalms 23 in order to give one last word of encouragement.
24,000 Muslims took part and 70,000 Greeks were put to death. Next, political means were used to expand the empire. For example, the Muslims were in power because they were telling others what to do. Finally, financial incentives expanded the empire. The Muslim s used gifts called stipends to pay and bribe soldiers to fight for them.

Source A gives various reasons for participation in the First Crusade. These include for military leaders the gaining of power and territory and for the ordinary participants it was the deep religious fervour and the promise of absolution that drove them to join the Crusade. This view is convincing because Bohemond of Taranto did stay in the East and eventually became Bohemond of Antioch. There is also evidence that knights had to sell or mortgage land just to participate suggesting that maybe they were also planning to stay for the territory and power. Second Sons could also fit in this material motive because it was the idea that the first son in the family inherited all the money and land from his father and the Second Son was left

Allen Cutler’s journal article delves in to the concept of military conflict and conversion to Christianity during the First Crusade. The author states that it was the intent of Pope Urban II who inherited his interest in crusading against Muslims from Pope Gregory VII, to Christianize Muslims, by words and example. There have been those who have argued Urban II had no interest in conversion, but Allen, counters their assumptions by presenting three document sources that imply that during Urban’s speech at Clermont he broached the subject of conversion, by referring to the Turks as “a race utterly alienated from God.” Allen surmises that Urban the implication is they were not “converted to Christianity” and therefore conversion was foremost on Pope Urban’s mind. The Pope also wanted to reinstall papal
Weems receives the credit for the cherry tree myth that so many of us know to this very day and use this to give an exaggerated reason for Washington 's honesty. He used this wild story to gain any small amount of wealth he could grab from the unsuspecting people of this time. He weaved stories to teach lessons on behalf of Washington to further his point that he was such a great leader. President Abraham Lincoln admitted to reading the stories as a young boy to help shape him into the great president he had later become. By making up these stories to heighten Washington’s stature, people admired and perceived him as a religious man, even though there is no evidence to support that he was a devout Christian.
